How it Works

Supplier Finance for you as a Supplier

Through a Buyer-led Supplier Finance programme, Emirates Development Bank will provide an early payment to you based on confirmed invoices by your Buyer. Here’s how it works:

  • 1. As a supplier, you deliver the goods and invoice to your buyer.
  • 2. Your buyer uploads the invoice listing.
  • 3. We provide you with early payment within 24 hours.
  • 4. We collect payment from your buyer on the invoice due date.

How to Apply

Onboarding to the National Supply Chain Finance Platform is led by a corporate client, known as an Anchor. As such, we approach suppliers and distributors only once we’ve negotiated an agreement with a suitable Anchor.
