Purchase order factoring – Grow and expand with your business.
Purchase order factoring, sometimes called “contract funding, is great for businesses needing financing during times of growth and expansion. Cash flow reserves often become insufficient, and additional financing sources are needed. The problem comes when suppliers want a business to pay upfront via C.O.D., and the buyers want to purchase the goods on net 30-60 day terms. This means there is no incoming cash during manufacturing while the goods are in transit, and until the invoices have matured.
Purchase order factoring solves this problem by paying for the cost of the goods directly to your supplier on behalf of the manufacturer or distributor. Purchase order factoring frees up your cash for other critical business operational expenses such as paying for utilities or marketing.
Before applying for purchasing order factoring there are several things that should be done. These include:
• Get a purchase order from your customer.
• Find a reliable supplier of your products.
• Place the order with that supplier.
