How Trade Finance Works

1. Customer places order

The customer, or end client will place an order with your business.

2. Your business seeks a supplier

The importer (your business or company) would find a supplier to fulfil the order.

3. Get in touch with Trade Finance Global

The importer speaks to Trade Finance Global and finds the right funding solution for the goods at a competitive rate, to pay the supplier.

4. We find the most suitable funder

The most suitable stock finance funder for the transaction either pays the supplier direct, provides a loan to the Importer, or provides guarantees such as an LC.

5. Dispatching the product to your business

The supplier ships the product to your company, (the Importer).

6. Fulfilling the customer order

The Importer provides the product under the customer order and the end customer pays for the product.

7. We find the most suitable funder

The Importer settles the stock finance facility or the guarantee ends and the remainder is kept by the Importer.
