Purchase Order Financing

Gateway Trade Funding offers a finance program that allows your business to purchase inventory from your vendors without drawing on your line of credit.

Supplier

Produces products ready to ship once inspection is completed.

Supplier

Ships product and draws on the Letter of Credit, wire or payment against documents,
