An export transaction typically begins with a request for a quote from the buyer to the seller. The quote almost acts like a contract by stating that certain goods or services will be provided for a set price within a set period of time. If the buyer accepts the quote, it constitutes an agreement between both the buyer and the seller. There are a lot of things that need to be included in the quote for both parties to benefit.
Especially if it is someone’s first time preparing a quote, I would strongly advise using an export quote worksheet to ensure that all the needed information is gathered.
