English translation:..included in a debit posting to costs of bills of exchange
Explanation:
"effet" is a bill of exchange (Also called a "traite"). The whole sentence would be: Payment terms (or settlement terms): Bill of exchange costs. Payment terms which will automatically be included on a debit posting to costs of bills of exchange.

These costs include things like the discount the bank charges for cashing the bill of exchange early, the other bank handling costs, stamp duty in some countries...

Just found US English term is "letter of credit" rather than UK "bill of exchange".

Need to withdraw that last comment - it is wrong. Thanks to Bob Killingsworth for correcting me. Draft would be better, as he says.
