Four steps to getting funded

Stop waiting 30-120 days to be paid and start funding payroll, new projects, and your growing business today.

1. Apply online in 15 minutes

All you need to apply is your company's financial accounts and latest bank statements. We're only a phone call away if you ever need help.

2. Add a customer

Next, add a customer to your account by searching our system. If it's not already there, just add them manually.

3. Upload your invoice

Upload your invoice and get an instant price. Unlike traditional invoice financing, we don’t ask for your whole debtor book, so you only pay when you need us.

4. Verify and get funded

Once your invoice is verified (usually in a day) we'll advance you up to 90% of the face value. You get the remaining amount once your customer pays.
