Resources: New guide from ExIm bank offers fundamentals, tools for small business exporters

How do you balance what your business requires to safely sell products overseas against the needs of your foreign buyers? Many firms struggle to capture foreign sales, simply because they are unaware of the options available.

As an exporter, you face risks most businesses never consider. Banks often hear “export” and become hesitant to secure your export financing or bond needed to grow your exports. Exporting makes more sense now more than ever before, whether you’re a small business exporting your products for international trade for the first time or a large U.S. import-export business.

The Trade Finance Guide: A Quick Reference for U.S. Exporters was designed to help U.S. firms learn the basic fundamentals of trade finance so that they can turn their export opportunities into actual sales. Developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and provided to you by the Export-Import Bank, this new guide offers an easy to understand overview of the financial tools available and where to access them for your global trade business.
