Concluding a transaction by a network of factors across borders. The exporter's factor can contact correspondent factors in other countries to handle the collection of accounts receivable.

Concluding an international transaction by using a more than factor; that is, an institution that buys others institutions' accounts receivable. In this situation, an exporter sells its accounts receivable to a factor, which then contacts other factoring institutions in order to collect what was owed to the exporter. This helps the exporting business because it may divest itself of credit risk (and perhaps currency risk as well).
