Cooperative Business Services Partners with NOWaccount® to Provide Small Businesses with Growth Capital
Cooperative Business Services (CBS) understands the challenges small businesses face in today's market, and our priority is to help your business grow by delivering innovative funding solutions that work best for you. To enhance your access to capital, CBS has partnered with NOWaccount® – the first merchant service that works for B2B.
With NOWaccount, you choose which accounts you want to receive payment on NOW®, while your business and government customers continue to enjoy the free and flexible payment terms they require.
If your customers take 30, 60, or even 90 days or more to pay, NOWaccount lets you turn your receivables into cash – all for the same or less than the cost of accepting a credit card for payment.
- You choose which customers to enter into your NOWaccount.
- All of the selected customer’s invoices are submitted into your NOWaccount.
• Customers may be removed from the system at anytime, but once removed,
they may not be reentered for 12 months.
- You receive approval decisions on your selected customers within 48 hours.
- NOWaccount pays 90% of the invoice amount, less any applicable surcharge,
within 5 business days of invoice submission.
- You receive the 10% reserve, less the 2.5% fee, 30 days after invoice maturity.
(minimum 60 days after purchase)
- Your fee is based on the payment terms you offer, not when, or if, the customer pays. Fee equals:
