Purchase Order Finance

If you are a manufacturer or distributor and your business receiving orders from large retailers you are having difficulty filling or manufacturing because of their size, purchase order finance may be a ready working capital solution for you.  For many small businesses involved in goods, purchase order finance can often make the "Big Deals Happen".   

 How Purchase Order Finance Works

Purchase order finance, commonly referred to as P.O. finance, is used to finance the manufacture or purchase of goods where a firm, non-cancellable order exists from a large, creditworthy buyer.  It is very often associated with offshore manufacturing where a factory (contract manufacturer) requires the posting of a letter of credit to make goods destined for a large retailer.  It is, however, just as commonly used for normal domestic transactions as well.

Goods Only!  Not Available for Service Contractors in Need of Mobilization Funds

Purchase order finance is customarily only available for financing the manufacture or delivery of goods.  It is not available for nor can it be used as a source of "mobilization" money to perform a service contract.  It additionally cannot be used to finance inventory that is not immediately deliverable.  There must be a firm order for the goods where payment will be received in 90 days or less once the goods are delivered.
