Three easy steps to access Purchase Order funding

As an agile and dynamic fintech setting the pace for providing essential funding for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) across South Africa, ProfitShare Partners has structured  a Purchase Order funding model for access to finance between R250,000 to R5,000,000.

A common problem SMEs face is applying for funding via traditional routes, then waiting for an approval – and watching opportunities slip away as they wait.

ProfitShare Partners has your back: When you apply for financing with us, you’ll be asked a few questions, and your application will go to our specialists for a quick assessment. It’s all online, and response time is quick.

So, could your business benefit from Purchase Order funding? First off, you must know what it is and how to access it to see its benefits for you.


Bridging the payment gap

If you need to bridge the gap between an order and payment, Purchase Order funding as finance has the advantage of being quicker and easier to get, than a traditional bank loan.

Purchase Order funding is another way of saying “working capital finance”. Simply put, the process looks like this:

  1. Your business receives a signed order from a client
  2. The client agrees to pay you 30 days after you have invoiced them
  3. You can only invoice them once you have delivered

So how do you get from signed order to invoicing for payment if you don’t have the cashflow? Do you have to turn down the order, or try to access finance from a bank that may require endless details and prove costly in the long run?

Not anymore.

As a dynamic fintech that focuses on small to medium enterprises (SMEs), ProfitShare Partners provides funding that helps a business with working capital to fulfil your order or contract when traditional finance such as bank loans is hard to access.

The ProfitShare Partners’ business model is designed to assist SMEs and start-ups that often do not have the historical financial background that traditional banking requires.

Our easily accessible funding solution can provide rapid, efficient finance secured by your signed Purchase Order or valid contract.
