I try to limit all my freelancing to domestic clients only.
Anything beyond this, I would charge a premium rate. I would have to be prepared for the customer never paying, in which case I would depracate whatever work they received.
Second, I only accept payments via PayPal.
I do everything on a case-by-case basis.

My thoughts on International Letter of Credit: I spent several years as HW & SW engineer with certain purchasing responsibilities for a small company which sold high-priced systems to foreign customers mostly. Payment was always through International Letter of Credit, and payment was always difficult. A chain of banks was involved, and every bank in the chain sat on the payment for a full 3 days so they could collect interest on it. I was freqently within earshot of one of the owners complaining about the delays for payment to some unknown party.
