Purchase Order Funding or Pre-Shipment Finance

PO Funding is an effective solution to fund sellers right from the start of the manufacturing process, as soon as they receive a PO from their buyers.

An instrument devised by bankers to help fund sellers procure raw-materials and invest in manufacturing the goods pre-shipment, PO Funding is an excellent source of working capital for sellers who want to scale their businesses without incurring higher operational expenses.

Veefin SCF Purchase Order Funding Process Flow

Process flow

  • Buyer raises a PO which is sent to the seller for acceptance
  • Seller accepts the PO and can choose financing manually, if not on Autofinance
  • Veefin SCF pulls accepted PO details after integration with Buyer’s ERP systems
  • System automatically sends the PO details to the financial institution with the final disbursement amount auto-calculated as per sanction terms
  • Seller receives funds immediately, delivers goods on the due date and raises an invoice against the PO
  • If the seller wishes to avail invoice discounting facility, amount against PO is configured in the system to be knocked out upon generation of invoice and a new loan is created with an outstanding against the invoice
  • If not, seller makes the payment of the amount due against the PO and Veefin SCF settles the outstanding.
  • In case of a delay beyond the due date, penal interest charges are levied as per financial institution’s sanction terms.
