Business Borrowing Basics - Purchase Order Financing

Purchase Order Finance

Purchase-order financing (P/O financing) is designed to extend credit to a company that needs cash quickly, to fill a customer order. A company may operate with such a small amount of working capital that it cannot afford to pay the for the cost of producing a customer’s order. P/O financing enables such company to not turn away business, by borrowing from a lender using the purchase order itself as collateral to support a loan. This webinar explains when P/O financing may make sense for a company; some of the more common terms and conditions of such financing; how to negotiate those terms; how it co-exists with other forms of financing and potential alternatives.
