How SMBs Can Increase Working Capital

Part 2 of our 3-part series on Common Challenges of B2B Commerce

In the first of our 3-part series, we outlined how payment on Net30 terms is common in B2B. In fact, from the outside looking in, offering payment on terms seems like a given. Many SMBs feel they must offer terms to be competitive, but they overlook the risks of late payers and the impact of late payments on working capital. 

Every time a seller extends payment on terms they must consider several factors. 

Will the buyer pay on time?
Will late payments affect working capital?
Will late payments affect sales to other customers?

Knowing the answers to these questions is especially important for SMBs.

Research indicates SMBs, in general, assume too much risk when offering trade credit. Consider SMBs selling to large, enterprise buyers who delay payments in favor of investments in other projects. Joanne Simpson, Corvative CEO, found that a one-month delay in payment by Wal-Mart is associated with a 1.2% reduction in capex (capital expenditure) for a Wal-Mart supplier.
