- Obtain necessary licenses and permits:Depending on your business and the products you intend to trade, you may need specific licenses, permits, or certifications for international trade. Ensure compliance with all legal requirements.
- Export/Import Documentation: Familiarise yourself with the required export or import documentation, including invoices, bills of lading, certificates of origin, and customs declarations.
- International Payment Methods:Determine the most suitable and secure payment methods for international transactions, considering factors like currency exchange rates and payment terms.
