Once after goods exported, the documents under the said shipment along with original bill of lading are sent to authorize bank by exporter. The exporter’s bank sends the said documents for import clearance to the overseas buyer through buyer’s bank. Once after receipt of original documents by overseas buyer’s bank at destination, the buyer’s bank notifies buyer to ‘accept documents’ by paying the required amount mentioned in the exporter’s invoice.
