6-1- Cash on delivery, COD

Cash on delivery is a payment technique for international transactions. This technique authorizes the final goods carrier as a financial intermediary. The carrier shall deliver the goods to the importer against payment. The carrier therefore collects on behalf of its client, the exporter.

6-2- Commercial or corporate barter

Commercial bartering is a payment technique that permits merging two transactions between two companies. Chacune vend l'autre un produit. Each of them sells a product to the other. There are two sales, and therefore two risks. Subtract the smaller sale from the bigger sale in order to barter for import or export transactions.
