What is PICC?

PICC (People's Insurance Company of China) is an insurance group based in China, set up in 1949. It offers various insurance products including short-term export credit guarantees. PICC protects exporters against credit risks. If an importer declares insolvency, PICC guarantees the exporter gets paid.

Being granted a PICC credit limit enables you to solicit and receive favourable deferred payment conditions (lasting from 90 to 180 days) from a Chinese supplier.

How it works

Company financial documents
You will first share your company's financial documents with our consultants at Axton Global. We prepare and consolidate your company information and forward it to PICC, who will begin your credit limit assessment.
PICC credit investigation
PICC will investigate your company using the paperwork we submit to evaluate your company's profitability. A conclusion in your credit limit will be made based on PICC's investigation after approximately 21 days.
Sign your contract with your supplier
Your company accepts the conditions set out in a sales contract, negotiated with your supplier. The contract you sign will contain the agreed to deferred payment conditions.
Instigation of Credit limit
The PICC-guaranteed credit limit is instigated by your Chinese supplier. Using a credit limit with a range of exporters is possible, but $100,000 is the minimum sum you will use for each supplier.
Shipping of products
As soon as you have made a deposit for the goods, approximately 10 – 30% of the order's price, your products will be shipped. The excess fees will then have to be paid according to the deferred payment conditions you have agreed to.
Make the payment
You pay the remaining amount due for the products within the timespan of your deferred payment terms. The arrangement is guaranteed by PICC. They will ensure your supplier gets paid.

What is a PICC-guaranteed credit limit?

An authorized PICC-guaranteed credit limit is the uppermost number of trade credits available for your company that are granted to you by your Chinese supplier. This is shown in your electronic certificate, which stipulates how many trade credits you have after the investigation.

Your PICC credit limit certification will feature:

Your uppermost number of credit limits
The agreed to credit period
Your business' name
The name of your Chinese supplier
