How do I Pick a Credit Card for my Business?

Posted by Aaron Zahedani on Wed, Sep 10, 2014 @ 08:02 AM

We love explaining the benefits of accounts receivable financing, and how it is an effective tool for all sizes of business, but there are other tools worth considering. Another way to help start-up businesses in their infancy is the use of a credit card. A recent ‘how-to’ guide in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal, discussed how to pick a credit card for your business.

When a line of credit from the bank is not yet forthcoming, and those first few invoices are not yet large enough for you to qualify for invoice factoring, a credit card may be the answer as a stopgap measure. This also establishes initial credit in the business’s name.

How Can a Fuel Advance Program Help my Trucking Business?

Posted by Steve Barthol on Wed, Aug 20, 2014 @ 07:55 AM

If you were to ask small to medium sized trucking companies what it is they consistently struggle with, the frequent answer would be covering fuel costs while on the road.

Customers can often take many days to pay their invoices, depending upon the agreement in place, or sometimes just because they pay late. Late payment means less money to pay bills and cover operating costs. Filling up with fuel to deliver a load is a fundamental cost, which has to be covered in order to deliver the load. With the fuel advance program from Bay View Funding, the working capital needed to cover the cost of fuel can be obtained prior to load delivery. This means no more worry about fluctuations in gas prices, or decisions about which bills not to pay to make sure the gas cost is covered.

Andrew Aquino Explains The Process of Invoice Factoring

Posted by Gil Oliva on Fri, Aug 01, 2014 @ 08:30 AM

I had the pleasure of talking with Andrew Aquino, Executive Vice President of Bay View Funding, about the process of invoice factoring. He was able to explain how easy the process really is.

Andrew talked with me about what is involved in getting set up as a client with Bay View Funding. He explained that basically they extend financing to businesses that provide goods or services to other businesses. Invoice factoring is a business-to-business transaction providing financing based on the underlying accounts receivable. If you have a business selling a product or service to another business and that business is creditworthy, then Bay View Funding could, for the most part, provide financing to your company.

I wanted to fully understand the process of getting set up. Andrew was able to tell me that the process is really simple – “If we can contract with you and work with your customers, we can provide financing.”
