Purchase Order Financing Underwriting Criteria

purchase order financing criteria

Purchase order financing is form of short term financing that can be utilized by businesses that need capital to produce or deliver a product or service to a customer. Like other forms of short term financing, PO financing is more expensive than a conventional bank loan. However, if you cannot acquire conventional bank financing, the cost of alternative financing is a moot point!
