Staged Payments

WHAT IS STAGED PAYMENTS?

When your customer needs bespoke equipment, there’s a lot of work to do upfront. But the investment made in designing and manufacturing equipment for factories, packaging or production lines can be a real risk to your business.

Staged Payments are a simple way to mitigate this risk, ensuring better cash flow security for both you and your customer.

HOW DOES STAGED PAYMENTS WORK? 

  • We pay the equipment manufacturer at various stages, starting from when you close the sale, through to completing the installation. For example, we might fund a 30% deposit at the point of sale, then 60% of the cost during the production and installation phase, and a final 10% upon completion.
  • Once installed, the customer can either:
    • Pay the interest on the staged amounts or;
    • Bundle the interest with the equipment cost into a finance agreement and spread the payments over a term that suits them.

HOW STAGED PAYMENTS CAN HELP YOU

By providing the option of Staged Payments, you open up new possibilities for customers with longer term build needs. As an equipment manufacturer, you can:

  • Unlock larger purchases from customers who would normally be restricted by the need for a large deposit.
  • Decide how much and when you receive each payment between yourself and your customer, helping you to keep a healthy cash flow throughout the project.
  • Get paid faster than cash or a bank loan as we’d typically pay you within 24 hours of receiving the invoice.
  • Maintain good relationships with your suppliers by making sure they are paid quickly.

HOW STAGED PAYMENTS CAN HELP YOUR CUSTOMER

Paying the full price of new equipment before it’s even set to work can be daunting. With Staged Payments and a finance agreement, your customers can spread that cost to see a much faster return on investment. Your customer can also:

  • Protect vital capital as the payments are made using their operating budget and can be spread across a term that suits their cash flow.
  • Invest in equipment they need without compromise as when spending cash businesses are often restricted by budgets.
  • No upfront investment required until the equipment is fully installed and running.
  • Flexible finance that allow customers to bundle the interest payable on the staged payments into the finance agreement.
