Frequently Asked Questions

What is a letter of credit?

A letter of credit (LC) is a financial document issued by a bank on behalf of a buyer (importer) guaranteeing payment to a seller (exporter) for goods or services provided by the seller, provided the seller meets pre-established conditions.

You can use our OCR SDK scanner for direct scanning or upload photos and PDFs to our OCR API, starting the process with a simple action and then letting technology take over.

Klippa’s software then analyzes the light and dark patterns that make up the letters and numbers to convert the scanned image into text. After that, data fields are identified and extracted from the letter of credit.

Currently, Klippa supports all Latin languages. Our engine performs best on LCs in English, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, German, and French.

However, other languages can be supported on request. We’re open to training our machine learning models. If you have a specific case, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Is Klippa’s letter of credit processing GDPR-compliant?

Our servers are ISO-certified and by default located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Getting a custom server on a location of choice is possible in any location worldwide.

On a regular base, our security is tested via third-party penetration testing to ensure state-of-the-art security at all times.

How can I integrate Klippa’s letter of credit OCR?

Our API can be implemented into any software, web or mobile solution that you may be using. The main source of communication is JSON, so it is independent of specific programming languages.

Our mobile SDKs have been built using native IOS (Swift) and native Android (Kotlin). This means they can be implemented into native apps, but they can also be wrapped for cross-platform languages such as Xamarin, ReactNative, Nativescript, Flutter, PhoneGap, Cordova, Ionic and more. 

Klippa’s solution is made in a developer-friendly way. It is well-documented, so that developers can have all the information they need to successfully implement our API.
