Exporting tends to be more demanding financially than selling in the UK. Consignments are usually larger, lead times are longer and the risks are more difficult to control. At the same time, you may need to take into account the problems of handling payment in foreign currencies.
Negotiating the terms of an export sale is a matter of balancing the risks and the costs to you and your customer.
