How does it work?
Receivables Financing is a unique product that addresses a specific trade credit use case in India. When a consumer swipes a credit/debit/ATM card, the amount is deducted from his/her account immediately. However the merchant (receiver) has to wait 1 day for these funds to reach their account from the bank. This 1 day capital gap causes cash flow issues in businesses. Settlement financing provides 1 day loans to business that want to reduce their cash flow impact while waiting for transactions to settle from the day prior.
TradeCred uses technology to solve this problem for merchants. Strong risk management around transactions, authenticated by National Payments Corporation of India is used as part of the process to determine merchants that are suitable for these types of loans.
TradeCred works with a registered payment intermediary/ private ATM operator who gives real time settlement to merchants/ATMs post which the the money is received by TradeCred in its escrow account the following day. A payment intermediary is someone who manages the ecosystem of transactions between multiple banks and merchants. For example, one well known payment intermediary in India is Paytm.
There is active risk mitigation in place for Settlement Financing investments. All transactions are originated post biometrics or 2FA (Two Factor Authentication). Default risk is low given that there is a bank on the other end who is ultimately paying.
