  • When the buyer approaches Axios Credit Bank to issue a bank credit letter in the favor of the seller, we conduct a thorough check on the buyer’s credibility. 

  • If we are satisfied, we issue a payment guarantee letter and send it to the advising bank to get it verified. If the advising bank provides its acknowledgment, it is further then forwarded to the seller.

  • Now the terms & conditions of the payment guarantee letter get its authenticity on the seller’s hand.

  • If the seller finds out everything is correct in the LC agreement, he prepares the shipment of goods and submits the documents to the advising bank. 

  • Then the advising bank carefully checks the documents against the LC and they are fine, it releases payment to the seller and delivers documents to us.
