Product Overview

HSBC provides a comprehensive range of collection services under both Document Against Payment (D/P) and Documents Against Acceptance (D/A) terms. For Documentary Collections, the exporter, having shipped the goods, presents the necessary documents together with his instructions to HSBC. HSBC will then send these documents to the importer's bank for payment.
