Why Storfund

Work to your payment schedule, not your marketplace’s.

Why Storfund
Back Market seller,
£3M annual turnover

Growth burns cash

The breakneck increase in ecommerce, combined with the lengthy wait for payment on marketplaces, means that growth has outstripped cash flow. Your business can be flying, but without cash to restock, you can’t meet demand - profit is not cash.

Storfund or a loan? We don’t see it as either/or. Most of our clients use both. A loan is a bet on the future, a lump sum which can support a step change such as entry into a new marketplace or launch of a new brand. But it goes hand in hand with fixed repayments and a fixed term.

 

Sometimes you don't need a loan, you just need to get paid.

 

Storfund is “pay as you go”. We simply speed up the payment of cash you are owed, enabling you to keep pace with demand without going cap in hand to banks. Plus, unlike a loan, Storfund doesn’t add debt to your balance sheet, which is key if you are planning to sell your business.

Like selling should be

Cash flow

Receive your reserve on Day 1 and take control of your cash flow.

Full inventory

Get paid as soon as you sell. Restock immediately and never lose a sale.

Supplier discounts

Use upfront payment to negotiate a discount with your suppliers.

Because time is money

The short term benefits of faster payments are easy to understand: if you get paid as soon as you sell, you can restock immediately. But what about the longer term, how will Storfund help your business grow?

 

The answer is cash cycles. A cash cycle is the number of days it takes to recover cash spent on inventory. The quicker the cycle, the more sales and profit you can make over a year.

 

We typically pay 15 days quicker than marketplaces, so if you have a 30 day cash cycle, it will be halved by Storfund; this would translate into a 100% increase in annual sales.

Valerie Bertorello, Finance Director

“Shortening your cash cycle even by a few days can make a significant difference, especially if your business is growing.

 

Of course, one of the ways you can do this is by becoming a client of Storfund. We charge a fee that will initially reduce your margin, but in return, the service can more than compensate by elevating your turnover and profitability.
