Payment Guarantee

A payment guarantee ensures payment to the exporter if the importer does not fulfil their payment obligations – see below samples.

A payment guarantee can also be issued in the form of an endorsement on a draft, also known as an “aval.” In such cases, Danske Bank guarantees the payment of the draft.

Below are two common examples of a payment guarantee.
