purchase order financing
Purchase Order Financing is a funding option for businesses that need cash to purchase the supplies needed to fill a customer order. By providing funding for purchase orders, we can help your business to deliver your orders on time, in full and build a reputation as a reliable supplier.
how does it work?
Step 1: We – The X Quotient – pay your Suppliers on your behalf.
Step 2: Your Suppliers deliver the product directly to your Customer.
Step 3: You invoice your Customer.
Step 4: We – You and The X Quotient – wait to receive payment from your Customer.
Step 5: We – The X Quotient – pays you the remainder after deducting our capital and fees.
Requirements from your side:
An official Purchase Order issued by the Government, Parastatal or Large Corporate company.
We only finance purchase orders for the supply of finished goods. We do not fund performance related activities like Construction, Catering and other service type activities. (See FAQ’s section for more info)
The expenditure should be above R250,000. Should the expenditure be below R250,000 then your company’s combined annual turnover and assets should be above R1,000,000 for us to be able to assist you. (NCR mandated minimum)

Build a good reputation as a reliable supplier
only available to existing clients
We understand that you might have urgent expenses that need to be paid and you cannot always wait the full 30 days for your customer to pay us after delivery during a Purchase Order Finance transaction. We have developed a solution to bridge the cashflow gap. If your transaction qualifies for this product feature, we will advance a portion of the proceeds from the transaction to you in the form of cash before your client has made payment. This can be used for any urgent cash requirements you may have, like rent, salaries etc.
We have learned that you won’t always need our help when you get an order, and that is a good thing because it means you are growing and starting to stand on your own feet. But sometimes after using your own cash to deliver goods or provide a service to your clients, the 30 day wait to get paid becomes too much. Emergency expenses come up or you receive a new order and need to buy stock, and then you are stuck. For our existing clients – that’s you – we offer an Invoice Discounting service.
Definition: Invoice Discounting is a financial transaction in which a business sells its unpaid invoices at a discount in order to get paid immediately and avoid having to wait for payment.
So in short, in these cases we will buy that invoice which is awaiting payment from you at a small discount, and you will get the cash you need immediately.
What our clients think!
When I received my first Purchase order for R200 000 I was very excited but nervous at the same time, this was because I didn’t have funding for my very first project that I had to prove myself.
One good friend of mine referred me to X Quotient, where I met Pieter he explained everything and We started the funding process, In less than two weeks they helped me to buy and to deliver the stock where it was required.
X Quotient is very good company that I’d like to recommend everyone who might need funding. Everything is transparent.

We do not look at you as our funder, we look at you as our business partner. At the time we needed help, when all traditional funding institutions turned a blind eye on us, you came through for us and made us keep our business going. Without any cashflow our type of business where we do a lot of buying and selling, we can never survive. The XQuotient gave us a new lease of life as we continue to build our business. The turn around time makes it easy to compete and complete our orders within agreed time frames with our clients. You always try and accommodate each deal on its merit making us be able to continue selling and focusing less on funding. Thank you Pieter for having our back when need support. And to Eileen, we can’t get anything done with your quick processing of paperwork. We are happy to recommend you to any type of business, you are an excellent Business Partner!
