Accepting card payments
Many B2B suppliers are wary of accepting card payments. The benefits of guaranteed funds, fast settlement and even satisfying buyer preferences have not balanced out the high costs of interchange fees in the calculations of many suppliers. But when cash flow becomes a concern for buyers and suppliers, the equation can change. Billtrust predicts that accepting card payments will become a strategic necessity and we are committed to helping businesses accept card payments easily, securely and economically.
In times of reduced cash flow, SMBs need to keep what cash they have on hand for essentials like payroll, and to push out non-essential expenses for as long as possible as they adjust their models to get revenue flowing again.
Card payments offer a solution
For buyers, card payments are a lifeline. They feature a built-in credit line and float (with 30 days to pay their card provider) as well as the ability to make partial payments while they rebuild their revenue streams.
For the supplier, card offers guaranteed funds with quick settlement. But, most importantly in times of reduced cash flow, card payments will allow many customers to pay their suppliers when they otherwise could not.
