Dynamic discounting for enterprise businesses

With Earlytrade, businesses are empowered to act with confidence. Our software combines dynamic discount trading with competitive price setting, automating at-scale early settlements from buyers to suppliers. Now both parties can meet their payment obligations, save time and impact their bottom line.

How It Works
Here’s how to get up and running with Early Payments on the Earlytrade platform.
Step 1 – Set up your supplier portal

Set up your Earlytrade portal — our customised, cloud-based supplier portal and B2B platform that seamlessly connects to any ERP.

Step 2 – Invite suppliers and determine payment limits

Registered suppliers are able to view approved invoices, payment due dates and plan with greater confidence. Set up payment limits to allow for on-demand early settlement.

Step 3 – Strengthen supplier relationships with early payment

Deliver more control and confidence for your suppliers with no third party involvement. Those who opt for on-demand early settlements will be paid directly by you, as their business requires.

Key features

  • Customers determine the amount of cash made available for early payment, and can adjust this at any time, you are in control of this throughout the year in response to their own working capital position
  • Funds never flow through Earlytrade, and you maintain control over your invoice processing and payments
  • Earlytrade enables customers to pay their supply chain early, in exchange for discounts, improving liquidity and reducing risk of insolvency

    • Empowers suppliers to own their cash flow, and maintain full discretion on how and when they participate;
    • Easily accessible and a competitive alternative to expensive traditional supply chain finance
  • Improved transparency and efficiency – Earlytrade enables suppliers to easily view the status of their invoices, driving a ~60% reduction in inbound Accounts Payable (AP) queries
