Finally, it should also be mentioned that fulfin will leverage the ability to monitor online sales to release a loan product where future revenues will be used to collateralize a loan.
Case Study: Turn marketplace balance into liquidity

At the same time his supplier demands prepayment to continue the exclusive supply relationship and ramp up deliveries.
The fulfin platform verified the e-commerce sales performance of the Merchant, as well as the account balance and a collateralized loan, which was granted within 24 hrs enabling the merchant to pay his supplier and prevent disruptions to his business.
