In order to proceed in good faith, the seller requires that the LOI (Letter of Intent) is no more than five days old.
Buyers are free to order any reasonable quantity of any product they desire, however they should be aware that the seller will not regard any shipment as a trial shipment, and that no extra product will be held in reserve for a buyer for subsequent orders. The price will be based on the ordered quantity.

Regularly no, sellers do not supply SGS reports prior to opening negotiations.
The preferred method of payment is a Bank Guarantee, however a Documentary Letter of Credit or swift payment MT 103 are also acceptable. In all cases, the financial instrument must be issued or guaranteed by a Top Western Bank.
Letters of credit must be confirmed, irrevocable, divisible, and payable on sight. If the product is to be shipped in installments, then the letter of credit must revolve to cover each subsequent shipment.
SGS Inspections are paid for by the seller, and are carried out at the port of loading.
Several items of documentation will be required in order to successfully negotiate a shipment. The soft quote is the first piece of documentation the buyer will receive. If the terms of the soft quote are agreeable, then the buyer will be required to sign a NCNDA (Non Circumvention, Non Disclosure agreement). This document provides necessary protection to both the buyer and seller as they move forward in the trading process.
A Letter of Intent (or Irrevocable Corporate Purchase Order ICPO) is the first piece of documentation required from the buyer, and it should be accompanied by a Bank Comfort Letter BCL or Soft Probe Authorization. When these documents have been received and verified, a Firm Corporate Offer (FCO) will be issued to the buyer.
