Issuance of Documentary Credit for a Chinese Buyer to Import A+ Chicken Paws from Brazil

Chicken Paws are proving to be popular in China, as like chicken wings in the US. Paw imports in China slightly slowed down in the year 2020 and the mid of 2021, due to the impact of COVID 19. But now, the demand has been increased rapidly. To meet the demand, a buyer from China planned to import chicken paws from Brazil using a Documentary Letter of Credit.

What is Documentary Letters of Credit?

Buyer’s Requirement of Documentary Credit

Since the demand for Chicken Paws is at its peak in China, the buyer decided to use this time to do some imports. They planned to import the paws from overseas sellers & resale them to the local market. So, they searched for the seller and find the best one from Brazil. The Brazilian seller offered the best quote for the buyer. But to proceed with the import, the buyer didn’t have enough cash funds in their hands; so they discussed with the seller to import the goods without making advance payments. Since the buyer was unknown, the seller didn’t want to take any risk. So, he asked the buyer to provide a Letter of Credit which assures that the payment for the supplied goods will be made right after the shipment. The buyer agreed to the seller’s demand and started looking for ways to get MT700.
