advance against collection

(banking) A short term loan or credit extended to the seller (usually the exporter) by the seller’s bank once a draft has been accepted by the buyer (generally the importer) of the seller’s goods. Once the buyer pays, the loan is paid off. If the buyer does not pay the draft, the seller must still make good on the loan. See bill of exchange.
