TERMS OF SALE:
The fol­low­ing are brief descrip­tions of the more com­mon Terms of Sale (fully defined in the “Amer­i­can For­eign Trade Def­i­n­i­tions 1941″), set­ting forth the oblig­a­tions of the seller and buyer.

(a) FOB (Free on Board)
The seller assumes charges and risk for the goods until they are loaded on board a named car­rier at a named point, which may be an inland point or a port. The buyer is respon­si­ble for any loss or dam­age after load­ing on board the car­rier. The buyer should spec­ify FOB to con­trol insur­ance with­out rely­ing on the “other fel­low”

(b) FAS (Free Along­side)
The seller assumes charges and risk until the goods are deliv­ered along­side the ves­sel. Loss or dam­age from along­side the ves­sel is the respon­si­bil­ity of the buyer.

© C&F (Cost and Freight)
The seller assumes respon­si­bil­ity for charges and for loss or dam­age until the goods enter the car­riees cus­tody or are loaded on board the ves­sel. The buyer is respon­si­ble for loss or dam­age at this point.

(d) CIF (Cost, Insur­ance, and Freight)
The seller’s price includes cost of the goods, Marine insur­ance, and all trans­porta­tion charges to the named des­ti­na­tion point. Seller also pro­vides War Risk insur­ance as obtain­able in his or her mar­ket at the time of ship­ment, at buyer’s expense (unless seller has agreed that buyer pro­vides War Risk insur­ance). Seller should spec­ify CIF to main­tain max­i­mum con­trol of the ship­ment until the trans­ac­tion has been com­pleted.

TERMS OR METH­ODS OF PAY­MENT:
If the insured is not paid for any rea­son, he/​she must dis­pose of the goods and, there­fore, still has an insur­able inter­est. Fol­low­ing are the more com­mon Terms or Meth­ods of Pay­ment:

(a) Col­lec­tion by Draft
The seller bears the risk until he/​she is paid. If for some rea­son, the buyer does not accept the ship­ment, the seller has the prob­lem of dis­pos­ing of the goods. By arrang­ing the insur­ance, the seller can min­i­mize the risk of loss.

(b) Open Account
When sales are made on an open account, the seller has finan­cial risk sim­i­lar to col­lect­ing by draft. Here again, the seller should attempt to arrange the insur­ance.

© Let­ter of Credit
In this pro­ce­dure, the buyer estab­lishes credit in U.S. money through his or her bank in favor of the seller. If the seller col­lects by this means, the let­ter of credit often stip­u­lates that he/​she arrange the insur­ance.

VAL­U­A­TION CLAUSE:
Pro­vides basis for deter­min­ing insured value of a ship­ment under the Open Cargo pol­icy.

WAR RISK:
Insur­ance against loss or dam­age to prop­erty as a result of war risks.

WARE­HOUSE TO WARE­HOUSE: (Door to Door)
An export/​import pol­icy clause that pro­vides pro­tec­tion from the shipper’s ware-​house and dur­ing ordi­nary course of tran­sit to the consignee’s warehouse.
