Traditional factoring usually means longer waiting periods, more fees and less transparency. Invoice discounting is a growing niche, which means that many IT entrepreneurs and existing traditional factoring companies are looking to create cloud-based invoice discounting platforms as a lucrative investment.

The practical process

Invoice Discounting Platform - the Invoice Discounting Process

The invoice discounting process starts out by sending invoices to customers as usual, including amount due and payment date. Next, the discounting platform automatically generates an offer for the same invoice, which upon acceptance is verified by the platform provider. You receive the cash usually within a few hours, to use for your business expenses. When the invoice is paid, you repay this loan to the discounting platform provider, including additional fees and interest rate. Invoice discounting is confidential in the sense that your customer will not see that you are using it.

Why invoice discounting?

Invoice discounting offers several advantages. In short, some of the best arguments for invoice discounting are:

  • Increased cash flow due to faster payments
  • Freeing locked capital fast
  • Shorter credit collection period
  • No asset as collateral
  • Retained control over the sales ledger (compared to invoice factoring)
  • No effect on business relations between seller and buyer
  • Means to expand your business

Differences between invoice discounting and factoring

Invoice discounting and factoring have many things in common. One major difference is how the customers notice it. When using invoice discounting, you are still in control of collecting the payments. Invoice discounting is generally an option for companies with a bigger turnover, as it has higher credit requirements and higher costs. A common case is that businesses that grow quickly use invoice discounting to speed up cash flow for new investments. Factoring is different, since the factor takes over the credit control and collection process. No matter the choice, a quality platform with the right software is important. On Stage11 platform you can get access to both options combined.
