What is Purchase Order Finance/Financing (aka PO Financing)?
Purchase Order Finance or "PO Funding" can be one of the more difficult types of commercial finance to secure for fast growing businesses. Factors, however, routinely provide some amount of purchase order finance as "pre-ship" invoice financing.
Traditional purchase order finance is provided through companies that specialize in that transaction. Our clients benefit from our established relationships with some of the largest providers of purchase order finance nationwide.
While requirements and qualifications for purchase order finance will vary from lender to lender, some are relatively standard. To qualify for purchase order financing your business generally must:
- have an established factoring relationship;
- not be re-packaging or simply creating an inventory with the product;
- have an established and acceptable credit history;
- be funding orders of significant size ($100,000 and larger).
