What are the qualifications needed for Trade Payable Finance?
Trade finance is the process of financing goods or services in a trade or transaction, that goes from a supplier to the end buyer. The term "trade finance" refers to a wide range of financial instruments.
Purchase order financing, invoice financing, supply chain finance, and letters of credit (LCs) are a few examples. Importers or exporters can employ these financial tools. Trade payable financing is a program that allows a company (buyer) to extend the payment terms of its purchases from vital suppliers by partnering up with 1st Commercial Credit.

Trade financing, also known as import and export finance, is an important economic driver for development since it keeps maintaining credit flowing throughout supply chains.

This financing method works by having 1st Commercial Credit pay your supplier directly or reimburse you for payments you have already made.

Some benefits of trade payable financing for buyers include:
It's all about ease of use, short setup cycle and 100% vendor approval without waiting on a network to process documentation.
There are many trade payable finance companies in the market to choose from. The reality is buyers need an easy process to apply, easy method to approve vendors, and a fast and flexible system for the internal staff to learn the process. If the system is too difficult for the accounts payable department to track and pay suppliers with additional work and multiple processes, it will fail. If the system requires a 50+ page document for the suppliers to sign up for the program, it will fail. The main focus is to maintain very few steps for the supplier to submit an invoice and the payables department to approve, authorize to pay and track.
If the system is too complicated, or the buyer has to hire and payout an IT company to setup API integration in order to communicate with the trade payable service provider. These obstacles should not exist and will discourage buyers from continuing the implementation process the leads to a complete halt.
1st Commercial Credit makes it very simple with no software cost or integration needed.
