When you factor the invoice, we reserve 10% of the invoice amount until the shipper pays. We pay your carriers first and then the remaining advance goes to you. When the shipper pays, we pay the remaining minus our fee.
Non-recourse factoring means the factoring company assumes most of the risk of non-payment by your customers. This can be misleading because non-recourse does not necessarily protect your company from all risk. There are usually strict stipulations associated with non-recourse factoring, and the situations in which you are not responsible for customer non-payment are extremely specific.
For example, most factoring companies offer non-recourse that only applies if a debtor declares bankruptcy. And they limit non-recourse agreements to debtors that have a good credit rating. This means the shippers with bad credit ratings (who are at the highest risk of non-payment) aren’t even eligible for the non-recourse program. A majority of non-recourse agreements have a much higher factoring rate (sometimes by a full percentage). It’s important to determine whether the higher rate is really worth the cost.
