[Fashion] Growing your business without cash flow problems!

Blog
22nd November 2018

Growing your fashion brand without having to worry about cash flow problems? This is the kind of service that Webhelp Payment Services and Lea Trade together propose to French and international fashion, footwear and accessories companies.

Cash flow problems

Which companies are concerned?

Whether set up recently or established for several years, some fashion brands face procurement problems, often associated with early payment of their suppliers.

“We are sometimes called upon to help newish brands, or well-established brands that are going through a period of stagnation, or even a slight downturn,explains Aline Abeya, Sales Manager, France & Benelux, for Webhelp Payment Services. “These companies are often faced with bank restrictions, and this can affect their supplier credit and the development of their business.”

Typical case:

A company is unable to pay its suppliers, situated abroad. Its revenue is insufficient or stagnant, and its ratios do not allow it to obtain the credit lines requested from the banks or the suppliers.

Yet it is not uncommon for Webhelp Payment Services to be on terms with, or even already to manage, the end customers of said company: in which case, the latter can entrust its accounts receivable to Webhelp Payment Services. In turn, in the framework of an exclusive partnership, Webhelp Payment Services can task Lea Trade with paying the suppliers concerned.

To summarise, therefore: the company submits its invoices to Webhelp Payment Services, which collects the payments, and passes them on to Lea Trade for reimbursement. The solution can be implemented quickly and easily!

Supporting a brand’s strategic developments

To face growing competition and longer payment deadlines, many modest or average-sized players are changing their strategy. They often try to redeploy over the web, in particular moving toward B2B marketplaces.

For example, Webhelp Payment Services manages all the financial transactions of the shoesfromspain.com marketplace, created by the Spanish footwear association.

And since September 2018, Webhelp Payment Services has managed the B2B marketplace of premierevision.com, the international trade show for fashion procurement.

“For Webhelp Payment Services and Lea Trade alike, the challenge consists in being able to support brands, whatever the chosen distribution model, and whatever the change they wish to undertake!”, concludes Aline Abeya.
