How Seller Loans work

Get the financing you need upfront to buy raw materials, manufacture goods and prepare them for shipment.

Seller Loans can be arranged on a pre-shipment or post-shipment basis.

Pre-shipment loans are provided upon presentation of a Letter of Credit or a confirmed purchase order from your buyer

Post-shipment seller loans are provided upon presentation of a confirmed invoice or other export documentation such as proof of shipment

Before you can draw down funds on a Seller Loan, we’ll need to set you up with a trade facility

To find out how a Seller Loan could help your business or to arrange a trade facility, contact one of our Trade Finance specialists.
