Customers who want to improve supply chain health and build better supplier relationships rely on C2FO to help suppliers accelerate invoice payments.
No, C2FO is not factoring. Your customer continues to pay you directly, and you request acceleration only on the invoices you choose. C2FO is 100% flexible in terms of what invoices you want to be paid early and at what discount rate.
C2FO Early Pay is different from supply chain finance. You can choose to accelerate payment on receivables from your customers or through a third party in our funding network — on your terms when you need it. You are not obligated to accelerate all of your invoices, which is often required by many factoring agreements. C2FO is 100% on-demand.
Activate your C2FO account on your customer’s microsite. You can find your customers here. It takes less than two minutes to register and start participating, because your approved invoices are already uploaded to the C2FO platform for early payment.
No, there is no change to your invoicing process, and you can continue to invoice your buyer as you do today.
You don’t need to upload invoices. Your customers have partnered with us to provide an invoice management platform to all eligible suppliers. Invoices are usually reflected on the C2FO platform once your customer has finished the matching process and no dispute has been opened. Therefore, all your eligible invoices are already in the system, ready to be reviewed and accelerated at your convenience.
When you log in to your account, you will be able to view and download available invoice data such as invoice amount, original pay date, days paid early, and new pay date.
On average, new invoices can be available up to 15 to 30 days after being received by your customer’s Accounts Payable team.
In most cases, this usually means your customer has not yet added your company to its Early Pay program. Your customer has not yet transferred your invoices to C2FO or your terms, do not qualify you for the Early Pay option. If you have a direct contact at your customer’s company, please contact them directly for accurate feedback.

If you choose “Recurring” early payment, your outstanding invoices will be automatically submitted on the next working day. No additional action is required.
