SmartFunding is rolling out their latest product: Buy Now Pay Later services for SMEs.

Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) schemes are a relatively recent phenomenon. Essentially short-term instalment payment plans, BNPL schemes have conventionally been applied to consumer spending. As a payment method, it provides consumers an option to make purchases without having to worry about upfront costs or hefty interest charges.

Transferring this concept to the realm of business financing is pleasingly deft; after all, SMEs would also certainly benefit from having the option to finance the purchase of goods and services with little or no upfront payment.

The innovative part about Smartfunding’s BNPL offering for SME is that it is not vendor dependant. SME can get approved for goods and services purchase with their vendors of choice in quick turn-around, complete the procurement with financing coming from Smartfunding in an easy and efficient digital onboarding process. 

Smartfunding will make payments to the vendors as per a normal procurement process, goods or services get delivered the SME. This will help ease the cashflow of SMEs so that they could focus on making best use of their capital , especially if they dont have excess capital. 

For example, a cafe needs to buy a new heavy-duty coffee espresso machine that could costs up to S$20,000 ,  the cafe owner just needs to apply digitally for the BNPL service at Smartfunding and named its preferred vendor and submit a copy of the quotation on the coffee machine that it is interested in. Once approved, Smartfunding will liaise with the cafe and the vendor, and onwards release payment to the vendor directly. 

The vendor will deliver the coffee machine to the cafe, which will make installment payments to Smartfunding over 6 months period.

 

This entire BNPL process could be completed in under 10 working days if all goes smoothly.
