Other Things to Note:

Export Documentary Collection Process:
1. The Seller ships the goods to the Buyer and receives documents from a logistics company handling the shipments (e.g. Bills of Lading or Airway Bill).
2. The Seller presents the shipping documents to Scotiabank with collection instructions for obtaining payment.
3. Scotiabank sends these documents to the Buyer’s Bank.
4. The Buyer’s Bank contacts the Buyer and informs them under which conditions the documents will be delivered to them. The Buyer can check whether all documents have been enclosed as stipulated in the contract. The Buyer’s Bank releases the documents to the Buyer on receipt of payment or acceptance of the draft.
5. Having received payment, the Buyer’s Bank forwards proceeds to Scotiabank.
6. Once payment is received, Scotiabank credits the Seller’s account.
