Partnership Brings the Speed Of Machine Learning Credit Decisions and the Purchasing Power of On-Demand Business Capital Directly to the Point-Of-Need
San Francisco, CA, June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today Fundbox, a leading financial technology company dedicated to simplifying the way businesses pay and get paid, announced that the Fintech leader has been selected by OroCommerce, the #1 B2B e-commerce software provider, to offer the company’s marketplace customers a powerful new checkout solution that unites fast credit decisions with on-demand access to trade financing.
Owned by Oro, Inc, a company that was founded in 2012 by industry leaders in open-source business application development, OroCommerce is dedicated to revolutionizing B2B commerce through digital transformation.
Unlocking The Net Terms Economy
According to a 2019 research study by PYMNTs, U.S. firms are owned an unprecedented $3.1 trillion which is currently locked up in accounts receivables. If this capital were to be unlocked, it could provide transformative business opportunities for millions of businesses that provide or rely on trade credit to complete a business transaction.
In order to capture this enormous opportunity, B2B companies need to take the guessing game out of their ability to buy or sell products and services. That’s why Fundbox has created a platform that facilitates faster-automated credit decisions with the certainty of sellers getting paid once a transaction is recorded and, better terms for approved buyers. By leveraging machine learning, Fundbox is able to to deliver fast credit decisions which means, that both buyer and seller can quickly move to capture important business opportunities as they happen, instead of having to wait.
By using Fundbox for checkout, Oro’s B2B merchants uncover greater sales opportunities because new buyers will no longer rely on credit cards, the functional limitations of which often result in lost sales. For both companies, this new partnership is designed as a model for accelerating B2B e-commerce and a win/win for both suppliers and buyers.
“In B2B eCommerce, the B2B buyer experience is everything and payments processing is a huge component”, said Motti Danino, COO for OroCommerce. “We’re excited to partner with Fundbox and offer approved business buyers a swift, seamless, and automated way to access business capital at the point of need.”
With Fundbox, applying for business credit is fast, convenient and transparent. Those B2B buyers seeking financing simply complete a short application form and then connect a business data source of their choice from either their credit score or a business bank account. For approved buyers, Fundbox provides credit access up to $100,000 in a revolving business line of credit. To date, Fundbox has facilitated over $1 billion in credit for growing small to medium businesses.
“We designed Fundbox with platforms like Oro in mind,” said Sebastian Rymarz, Chief Business Officer for Fundbox. “The biggest inhibitor to B2B e-commerce is the inability for sellers to quickly determine credit risk. And for buyers, it’s having terms that are flexible enough as to not disrupt cash flow. That’s why we created a two-sided solution that gives everyone what they need to complete a transaction. Our partnership with Oro reflects the future of faster B2B e-commerce and why it’s important for marketplaces to provide access to new payment/financing solutions that are meant to drive greater business opportunities.”
Fundbox is a leading technology platform focused on disrupting the $21 trillion B2B commerce market by building the world’s first B2B payment and credit network.
