In the current world economy conditions, development of any state can not be based solely on internal sources and the national economy results. Increased volume and diversification of cross-border transactions in goods and services, the dynamics of international capital flows, and the fast spread of technology, gives multiple values of foreign trade leading to growth of economic interlinks across the world countries. Through the foreign trade activity is carried out exchange of goods and services on the international market and ensure the participation of states in international economic cooperation. In today's global world economy, operation and coordinated sustainable development of economic systems involve, necessarily, to obtain the highest results and meeting/satisfy the needs of present without compromising the ability of national economies to satisfy their own requirements in the future more or less distant. A determining factor in business relationships and their success, regardless of export choosen manner and the type of contract used, is the price, contributing to the size of revenues from export, revenues that allow, among other things, make investments in infrastructure leading to raising living standards and social security. Starting from the importance of prices in achieving incomes related to international trade, in this article I will address the main categories of prices used in the export and import activity, also the models/patterns on the composition of the external price of export and import in terms of delivery conditions FOB, CIF and CAF.
