Purchase Order Funding

Never Turn Down An Order

Factoring – We’ll help you grow

Financial transaction in which a business sells its invoices, or receivables, to a third-party financial company known as a “factor.” The factor then collects payment on those invoices from the business’s customers. Factoring is also known as “accounts receivable financing.”

Companies factor in order to receive cash quickly on their receivables, rather than waiting for the 30 to 120 days it takes for customers to pay. Factoring allows companies to quickly build up their cash flow, which makes it easier for them to pay employees, fulfill orders and grow.

Purchase Order Funding, also known a Purchase Order Financing, is a great tool to finance large purchase orders. Businesses can secure financing for the purchase of goods for resale based off of an existing purchase order.

The Factor

Accounts receivable factoring involves the sale of accounts receivable to a factor. The accounts receivable factoring client sells goods or services to their customer and issues an invoice. The factor purchases that invoice at a discount and advances payment up to a certain percentage of the overall value (typically between 70-90%). The factor then collects payment directly from the end customer.


After delivering a product or service to your customer, you simply invoice your customer and submit a copy of the invoice to the factor with the necessary paperwork (schedule of assignments). This can be done electronically or with paper invoices depending on how you are set up with your clients.

The Cost

AR factoring costs vary depending on the quality of credits or customers you are dealing with and the size of the factoring facility. The projected volume of the deal can also affect the rate.
