What is Purchase Order Funding?

Starting and owning your own business is probably one of the toughest and most challenging decisions a person could make. It is anything but easy. One of the biggest challenges is trying to secure purchase order funding for supplies when big orders come rolling in. It is critical that you have the finance and support to keep your client happy.

Small businesses and medium enterprises in South Africa often run into financial challenges when trying to secure large orders from new customers. Competing and securing new customers is a difficult task in itself, as customers are continuously on the lookout for suppliers who can offer them the best product at the lowest price. When a deal has been closed it then becomes a worry of how to obtain the funds to purchase the products to deliver the service that is being offered.

Your business may be in a position if you are not able to deliver on your client orders.  Depleted cash flow will prevent you from fulfilling the purchase order. When this happens, the business runs the risk of losing both the order and the customer. A timely Biz Funding loan can offer much-needed assistance. Getting you the capital for a purchase order is exactly what we do. Funding cash flow and working capital is our single-minded focus.

Funding is often key to ensuring you get the finance for purchase orders. It is a popular way for management to acquire the necessary company credit. Government purchase order financing is the most popular request, yet it can also include a contract from a large corporation or municipal department to supply a service or deliver a product.
