  • Payment Guarantee: A payment guarantee is used to guarantee the seller that the buyer will fulfill its payment obligations as stated in the contract.

It guarantees compensation of the agreed-upon amount in case the delivery terms or other contractual obligations of the seller are not fulfilled as agreed upon in the contract.
