Letter of Credit

Bank of Marin can facilitate a letter of credit guaranteeing that a buyer’s payment to a seller will be received on time and for the correct amount. In the event that the buyer is unable to make payment on the purchase, the bank will be required to cover the full or remaining amount of the purchase.

Documentary Collections

Bank of Marin can facilitate this service on behalf of an exporter for collecting and remitting payment for a shipment. The exporter presents the shipping and collection documents to his or her bank (in own country), which sends them to its correspondent bank in the importer’s country. The foreign bank (called the presenting bank) hands over shipping and title documents (required for taking delivery of the shipment) to the importer in exchange for cash payment (in case of ‘documents against payment’ instructions) or a firm commitment to pay on a fixed date (in case of ‘documents against acceptance’ instructions).
