One result of this explosive growth in global trade is a dramatic shift in transaction formats in the international trade marketplace, which affects both ends of the supply chain. Specifically, there has been a noticeable and ongoing transition from traditional L/Cs to O/A trade. O/A trade has been proven to offer savings and enhanced efficiency throughout the purchasing cycle, particularly for companies with a one-to-many relationship between themselves and their overseas partners. Until recently, some rather daunting hurdles, including a lack of transparency and apprehension about crossborder exposure, had limited international O/A trade.

One of the main forces fostering this development is the outsourcing of capital intensive labor, production and distribution to global partners down the value chain. The reduction of trade barriers by bilateral trade agreements or World Trade Organization treaties has facilitated global exchange as well. The growth of global trade has accelerated strongly over recent years and is expected to continue at a similar rate. The total world trade in goods and services (volume) grew by 83% from $2,093 billion in 1999 to $3,823 billion in 2008 (OECD 2009).

By contrast, cross-border transactions involve corporations in at least two different countries with different jurisdictions. Domestic solutions are simpler because they operate in a single language environment and legal/regulatory jurisdiction, with usually only one payment format or infrastructure involved. International solutions, by contrast, are much more complex, with multiple challenges such as multiple currencies, different languages and multiple legal jurisdictions with distinct legislation affecting both procurers and suppliers.
