Bringing buyers and suppliers together

Because Fifth Third serves as an intermediary in the transaction, the relationship between the buyer and the supplier is strengthened. Both parties achieve a favorable outcome, making a healthier, more stable supply chain.

Providing value through purchasing

We can lead or participate in purchasing approved payables and trade receivables and facilitate payment at a discounted rate based on the buyer’s superior credit rating.

  1. An agreement to purchase is made through a purchase order or contract.
  2. The supplier sends the invoice for the goods, and Fifth Third obtains the buyer’s approval.
  3. Fifth Third discounts the invoice and sends the funds to the supplier without recourse. 
  4. At maturity, Fifth Third collects payment from the buyer.

A proven process

Our proven information management platform is scalable and easy to set up and manage the entire trade process from start to finish. You’ll have greater visibility and more control over the transaction and your organization’s finances.

Solidify your plans and partnerships

Through our trade finance solutions, you can reach your working capital goals and create long-lasting relationships with key trade partners.
