Trade Finance

Export Bill Purchase

Export Bill Purchase is a trade finance facility whereby Korea Eximbank purchases export bills arising from export transactions based on L/Cs or other arrangements (D/A, D/P, O/A, etc.)

Once the exporter completes shipment of the products as required by the L/C or the terms of the contract, and requests Korea Eximbank to purchase the export bill and shipping documents, the Bank pays the contract amount to the exporter and then proceeds to collect the payment from the importer's bank (for L/C, D/A, or D/P transactions) or directly from the importer (for O/A transactions) at the due date.
