U.S. Capital Equipment Export Financing Program

This program is ideal for U.S. exporters selling capital equipment to international buyers. Purchasing this type of equipment is expensive. U.S. exporters typically require payment upon delivery of goods which can be difficult for international buyers.

Our Equipment Export Financing program allows international buyers to pay for their equipment over time while Drake Finance advances up to 85% of the purchase order to the U.S. exporter with no Letter of Credit, collateral, or avals required of the international buyer.

How It Works

  1. U.S. exporter presents shipment documents including the invoice, purchase order, bill of lading, and an exporter’s certificate.
  2. Upon successful review, Drake Finance advances up to 85% of the international buyer’s purchase order and the U.S. exporter receives payment in as little as 48 hours from the time shipment documents are processed.
  3. Typically, the international buyer provides the US exporter the remaining 15% as a down payment.
  4. The international buyer then pays Drake Finance over time. It’s that simple!
