In international trade from Uganda, common payment methods include Letters of Credit (LCs), Advance Payment, Open Account, Documentary Collections, Cash in Advance, and Consignment. LCs provide a secure guarantee for exporters, while advance payment requires full payment before shipment. Open account extends credit to importers, relying on trust. Documentary collections involve banks to secure payment before releasing documents. Cash in advance is a simple method but may be less appealing to importers. Consignment allows ownership until goods are sold. Choosing the right method depends on trust, nature of goods, risk tolerance, and the relationship between exporter and importer. Careful consideration of options is crucial for successful international transactions.
