Avoid factoring and loans

The average cost of factoring is between 1% and 5%. Factors often charge late fees and have inflexible terms. Loans on the other hand, appear on the balance sheet as corporate debts, which is less than ideal. With Billhop, you never have to worry about any hidden charges or subscription costs. You simply pay a small service fee of 2.95% per transaction.
