How Buyer’s Credit Works

DBS arranges a line of credit with overseas banks to help you import goods

The overseas bank pays us directly, and we then pay your supplier on the import due date

You then pay the overseas bank on the buyer's credit due date

We can arrange import bills up to USD 20 million, ensuring a one-year line of credit for raw materials and three years for capital expenditure goods
