PAYMENT UP FRONT IS ALWAYS IDEAL, BUT ISN’T ALWAYS POSSIBLE. INVOICE FACTORING CAN PROVIDE WORKING CAPITAL IN AS LITTLE AS 24 HOURS SO YOUR SMALL BUSINESSES CAN FILL IN THE GAPS BETWEEN ISSUING AN INVOICE AND RECEIVING PAYMENT.
Invoice factoring is a non-loan form of funding called “accounts receivable financing” that enables your business to access working capital in exchange for your unpaid invoices in as little as one business day. Your lender (that’s us) will purchase your business’s outstanding invoices at a discounted price and advance you the net amount in cash, typically between 70-90% of the invoice’s value up to $100,000 per common ownership. We can arrange online invoice factoring in bulk for your entire sales ledger, or for individual or small bundles of invoices.
With online invoice factoring with Opalescent Solutions, we are responsible for collecting on the invoice. Once your client makes payment, we’ll send you the remainder of the invoice’s value (minus our fee), with terms typically ranging between 30 and 90 days. We know how important your customer relationships are and you can trust us to collect on your invoice professionally.

How to Get
Invoice Factoring Q&A
How do you determine which invoices to factor?
We review the customer you invoiced to verify their qualifications to pay the invoice. Once they are approved and the relationship is established, we buy all of your business’s outstanding invoices for that customer until either one of us ends the relationship with the customer.
Do you require a first position on invoice factoring?
We do not require first position on invoice factoring. However, most lenders do.
How will my customers know where to send payments?
We give your customer the payment information to wire to our business bank account, and will test beforehand to ensure payment is received properly. We are not a collections agency—we know how important your customer relationships are, and you can trust us to collect on your invoice professionally.
Is invoice factoring loan?

Will pay interest with invoice factoring?
