Getting paid is a vital part of the sales transaction, so join us to explore the options, and reduce the costs involved in receiving payment. Understand how to improve your security of payment and the roles of the banks, so you realise how you can influence the speed of the movement of the money. We’ll help you understand the intricacies of both Credit and Collection transactions, so you can appreciate how to control your goods with your documents.
