What is Purchase Order Financing?
Purchase Order Financing is an Invoice Financing product funded by lenders that provides capital to businesses to purchase the goods and supplies necessary to complete purchase orders.
This product requires a written purchase order and can provide companies with financing to cover up to 100% of the costs of the supplies needed to fulfill a purchase order.
If a company has at least a 20% profit margin within its orders from its clients, plus they have a steady supply chain that can fulfill an order to their clients within the net 60 business days and have clients that will pay their invoices within net 90 business days.
Then Purchase Order Financing can be an excellent product for both companies that need capital to fulfill purchase orders and companies that want to preserve their capital for other areas of their business. Purchase Order Financing works hand in hand with either Factoring or Accounts Receivable Financing as methods to pay off the funding and close out the transaction.
Purchase Order Financing is designed for growing businesses that want to fulfill orders for their B2B Clients, including but not limited to:
– Importers or exporters of finished goods
– Outsourced manufacturers
– Government contractors who are fulfilling government orders
Purchase Order Financing lenders step in once a company has landed a B2B Purchase Order from a creditworthy client and needs or wants capital to acquire the goods or inventory from their suppliers to fulfill the order.
This product can either pay a company’s suppliers directly or issue the supplier some form of a Letter of Credit or Supplier Guarantee. On average, it can typically take anywhere from net 15 up to net 60 business days to convert a purchase order to an invoice by fulfilling and delivering the goods to the client.
After the supplier has either delivered the goods ordered directly to the company facilities for them to deliver the goods to their clients or to the companies contract manufacturer or fulfillment center, who, in turn, will deliver the goods to the end-user client.
Once the end-user client receives the goods as ordered, the PO will be converted into an invoice for payment. Commercial Invoices are typically paid on terms ranging from the standard net 30 to the net 60 business days range. Although invoice payment terms can be as short as net 15 business days to as much as net 90 business days or more.
Since Purchase Order Financing, is always closed out and paid off by converting the invoice to either Factoring or Receivables Financing. Then as soon as each Purchase Order is converted to an invoice for payment upon delivery to the client.
The lender that provided the initial stage of financing will process the invoice for an advance of capital by using the invoice as collateral, to provide liquidity to the company before the invoice’s actual payment date.
The Factoring Financing or Receivable Financing will unlock an advance of up to 90% of the invoice value minus the amount already advanced for the Purchase Order side of the transaction and the PO Financing cost of capital fees once the client pays the full invoice in net 30 to up to net 90 business days.
The lender will remit the balance of the invoice left over after the first two advance stages minus the Invoice Financing cost of capital fees. From there, the transaction will be paid off and completed from the date of the initial purchase order to the final payment from the client.
