We only accept payment by irrevocable L/C, payable by sight draft accompanied by shipping.
You know, to open an L/ C is very expensive. We have to put a deposit in the bank and thus it will tie up our funds.
*Could you accept D/P* or D/A ?
* Could we adopt D/P or D/A?
I’m afraid not. We must act on our customary practice.
To meet half way, what about 50% by L/C and the balance by D/P?
In consideration of our good relationship we exceptionally accept D/P at sight but this should not be regarded as a precedent.
I see. Thank you for your accommodation.
