Letter Of Credit:

A document issued by a financial institution on behalf of a buyer stating the amount of credit the buyer has available, and that the institution will honor drafts up to that amount written by the buyer. It gives the buyer the prestige and financial backing of the issuing institution and satisfies the requirements of the seller in completing the transaction. The accepting institution has a prior agreement as to how the buyer will pay for the drafts as they are presented.
