Buyer Financing EDC

Buyer Financing

Use a competitive edge to win more international contracts.

Win more sales with Buyer Financing

Price and quality have always been crucial considerations in purchasing decisions, but more of your customers are looking for financing options. We can help you gain a competitive edge by providing Buyer Financing to your international customer – and taking on the risk of non-payment for you.

Gain a competitive advantage

Providing flexible financing arrangements can be the key to a successful sales pitch, differentiating you from your competitors.

Protect yourself from the risk of non-payment

Offering flexible term payments instead of cash up-front is always nerve-wracking. Take on international business without taking on all the risk.

Increase your customer loyalty

Enable your customers to make purchases from you that they might otherwise have not been able to afford at this time.

Help grow the Canadian economy

International companies that wish to buy Canadian can do so easier with Buyer Financing.

Set your business apart from the competition with Buyer Financing

Here's how Buyer Financing works:

1. You provide EDC with the export contract and credit information on your foreign buyer and EDC completes the credit review and approval process.

2. Once the review is approved,  EDC issues a loan agreement to your buyer and alerts you, the exporter.

3. The payment to you is usually triggered by EDC’s receipt of a buyer-approved invoice and EDC holds responsibility for collecting payment from your buyer and administering the loan.

EDC wants to ensure the Buyer Financing solution is the right option for your business. Several details determine eligibility; your customer’s credit rating, transaction details and other determining factors.
