How does purchase order financing work?
Transactions are fairly simple. Once you set up an account, we finance the supplier expense of your purchase order. We pay the supplier directly, on your behalf. Once they are paid, your supplier manufactures and delivers your product. The transaction settles when your client receives the goods and pays for them.
Purchase order financing is used in combination with factoring, which lowers your total transaction cost. For more information about how transactions are structured, read “How Does Purchase Order Funding Work?”
Do you qualify?
To qualify for purchase order financing, your company must:
- Be a product re-seller/distributor
- Have commercial or government customers
- Have orders of $100,000 or more
- Have transactions with a gross profit margin of at least 20%
- Have orders without a guaranteed sale or consignment sale clause

(Note: Companies that manufacture goods directly cannot qualify for this product. However, they should consider our supplier financing solution).
Rates are based on transaction parameters, including the credit quality of your clients, the reputation of your suppliers, the risk of the orders, and your experience fulfilling orders in your industry.

How to evaluate PO finance companies
Many companies offer purchase order financing – usually as an add-on solution to existing customers. However, few companies specialize in PO financing and have the technical knowledge to work with complex situations.
Given the importance of using this solution to the success of your company, evaluate each provider carefully. Consider asking the following questions:
- How long have you been in business?
- How is the company funded?
- What percentage of your portfolio consists of purchase order financing?
- What supplier payment methods do you support?
- How does the due diligence process work?
- Are there any due diligence fees?
- Do you have any minimums?
- What is the smallest transaction you can finance?
- What is the largest transaction you can finance?
- What is the term of the contract?
