Vasil Polishcuk: I am an Expoter"Seller" from Ukraine who is new / NOVICE to the LC payment System. I have been dealing with / accepting T/T Payment for my goods, but now a days potential clients wants to Pay me Only by "100% L/C Irrevocable" so i am now trying to consider accepting this system of Payment now . Please i need your help in clarification on the word " To draw DRAFT " ( Is a DRAFT amongst the Required documents i need to present to my Ukraine BANK in order to get PAID from the L/C once i have made shipment of the Goods ??? ) what does this mean " to DRAW DRAFT " ?? I have studied some L/C sample and i have noted that some of the most common Required documents for collecting Payment on L/C are : (1) 3 Originals and 3 ADDITIONAL Copies of B/L Document. (2) Original of SGS inspection Certificate (3) 3 Originals of Seller's COMMERCIAL INVOICE. (4) Original of INSURANCE Certificate ( if CIF Shipment) Now, the Question is : Do i need to DRAW a DRAFT " payment DRAFT" and Present to My Ukraine BANK together with the ABOVE Mentioned Documents ??? (A) Would i NOT get PAID if i only submit the Above Mentioned Documents Mentioned in the L/C to my Ukraine BANK without "Payment Draft" ??? (B) Is it MY Ukraine BANK that would have to PAY me the Money ??? Or, My Ukraine BANK's Duty is only just to Transfer the completed DOCUMENTS to the Buyer's Bank overseas and then Wait for the Buyer's Bank Overseas to send the Money "Payment" to My Ukraine BANK " My Bank Account" ???
