Insure against non-payment

Last updated 19 March 2019

Before you fulfil an order, think about what happens if a buyer doesn’t pay. You should:

  • research the country to see what legal recourse you have
  • consider a payment method that offers more security like a letter of credit
  • consider getting insurance to cover the risk of non-payment

See the government’s list of approved export insurance brokers.
