GUARANTEES PAYMENT TO SELLERS
Also known by the abbreviation SBLC, this type of business financing provides a guarantee to any company you need to purchase goods from. Standby credit letters are particularly useful for international trade.
How Standby Letters of Credit Work
Businesses typically seek SBLCs in order to close on a contract with another business. In providing an SBLC, your lender guarantees payment in the event that your business defaults.
There are two types of Standby Letters of Credit:
Financial SBLOC: Guarantees payment for goods or services.
Performance SBLOC: Less common; guarantees completion of a project.
