Avoid loans and factoring

While factoring may be a tempting solution for businesses looking for a quick cash injection, many fail to consider the true cost of factoring which includes high late fees and the risk of having to buy back unpaid invoices. By the same token, loans appear as corporate debts, which is less than ideal. Billhop takes advantage of the pre-approved credit on your card and gives you accessing to financing with no application process or impact to your credit rating.
