Greater efficiency and security for your supply chain

Secure better payment terms from your main suppliers

Strengthen your suppliers’ liquidity by leveraging your creditworthiness to help them gain access to low-interest financing

Prompt payment processing helps to ensure a stable supply chain with minimum risk of disruption

Having a powerful supply chain finance platform helps to increase transparency and efficiency. Approved invoices and their due dates can be reviewed directly on the respective platform.

This is how Approved Payables Finance works

The supplier delivers the goods and sends an invoice to the buyer.

The buyer confirms the invoice and uploads the corresponding liability together with an irrevocable unconditional payment obligation to the Supply Chain Finance Platform (SCF Platform).

The supplier receives the information that his invoice has been confirmed and requests funding by offering his claim, including the payment obligation.

The bank is informed about the financing request and accept the purchase of the supplier's claim including the payment obligation (true sale).

The bank forwards the discounted invoice amount to the suplier.

The customer pays the confirmed invoice to the bank at the due date.

Seamless IT integration for a highly automated digital workflow

Cooperation with leading supply chain finance platforms developed by expert fintechs

Approved Payables Finance is developed and structured by Commerzbank together with independent supply chain finance (SCF) platforms by fintechs such as PrimeRevenue Inc., CRX Markets AG and Taulia LLC.
