Wholesale & Distribution
Wholesale Distribution businesses may require funding to maintain fluid operations, invest in growth, or supplement payroll. Seacoast Business Funding makes it easy for distributors to get the capital they need when they need it.

Assisting Distributors With Industry Challenges
We understand that many distributors may be facing delivery and supply-chain delays, driver shortages, and long payment terms. Keeping your business going requires an approach that allows you to use existing assets at the right time. Having a reliable invoice factoring or asset-based lending solution in place helps to combat these challenges.
How Invoice Factoring Can Help You Meet Those Challenges
Distribution factoring is a simple way to balance your cash flow, so you can keep filling orders and moving your business in the right direction. Invoice factoring is a type of financing that allows you to get working capital by selling your accounts receivable invoices. Seacoast Business Funding provides you with an advance rate, which is a portion of the total invoices. As the invoices are paid, you receive the remainder, subtracting a small fee. Once your business is approved for distribution financing, you can use this service on occasion or regularly.
An Alternative to Traditional Financing
When it comes to financing, invoice factoring and Asset-Based Lending are sustainable options that positively impact growth and profitability for wholesale distributors. With alternative lending, the underwriting and approval process is much faster than traditional financing and ranges from 2-3 weeks based on whether a collateral audit is needed. For a traditional loan, you might need to wait for several weeks as various parties process parts of your application.
In addition, alternative financing reviews the creditworthiness of your customers (those who have outstanding invoices to your company) versus individual credit. Keeping a reliable clientele can help your business in more ways than one. Thus your business gains capital without affecting personal assets by leveraging outstanding accounts receivable invoices.
Lastly, if your business has had inconsistent financials or has been in business for a short amount of time traditional funders are less likely to take on the risk of a business that has little to no equity, but a Factor does not see this as a challenge. This type of wholesale financing depends on the risk profile of your clients more than your business experience. As such, many companies can secure reliable methods to get working capital, even if they would be turned away by a traditional lender.
