A proforma invoice is issued by an exporter at the beginning of an export transaction. It certifies the commitment of the exporter to sell specified goods for a certain price and at certain terms in a formal manner.
Once the proforma invoice is received by the importer, the terms and conditions stated on the proforma invoice should be checked.
By sending back a signed proforma invoice to the exporter, importer confirms the order.
