Whether through virtual payment technologies or faster payment initiatives, the B2B payments ecosystem has explored ways to accelerate the time it takes a buyer to pay its supplier. It’s one of the most common conundrums in this space and has yet to be solved — despite a plethora of options.
Some argue electronic payments, like credit cards, are the answer. Others say late B2B payments are a reality, and instead, suppliers should access external financing to manage cash flow while they wait to get paid.
NOWaccount CEO Lara Hodgson has a different approach. She told PYMNTS why financing the buyer, not the supplier, can not only solve the issue of late payments but make accounts receivable disappear.

One of the biggest nightmares a business struggles with is accounts receivable. It’s not so much an issue in the world of consumer goods where the payment changes hands with the goods. But for B2B companies, AR is a blessing and a curse.
