What does CIF and FOB mean?

FOB means Free On Board or Freight On Board. FOB specifies which party (buyer or seller) pays for shipment and loading costs, and/or where responsibility for the goods is transferred. 

CIF means Cost, Insurance, and Freight. CIF is used when the supplier must pay the costs, freight, and insurance necessary to ship the goods to the named port of destination.
