What is Inventory Financing?

Inventory financing is a form of short-term lending using a loan or revolving credit line. Because the inventory itself can act as collateral, companies can buy the products they need to sell at a later time. This gives them more flexibility in buying seasonal products they know will sell later, but they need to purchase it from the supplier before then.

How Inventory Financing Works

Businesses get inventory loans to buy products that they can put in the warehouse before it goes out to retailers or sells from an online store. A type of asset based financing, these loans help smaller companies especially when they need to purchase items to sell or supplies to make items to sell.
