Tradeling, a B2B electronic marketplace focused on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, announced on Tuesday (January 4th) that it had launched a partnership with FinTech MODIFI.
In an announcement posted on the MODIFI website, the companies said the partnership will support Tradeling users engaged in digital trade finance. With the help of MODIFI, Tradeling customers will benefit from payment terms of 30, 60 or 90 days, while paying their suppliers in advance.
“The partnership will further help companies obtain additional liquidity to finance transactions where traditional financing solutions cannot help,” said Marius Ciavola, CEO of Tradeling. “This will increase their purchasing power and allow them to benefit from discounts, which will allow companies to further improve their margins and make their operations profitable.”
MODIFI CEO and co-founder Nelson Holzner said the MENA region is an important market for the company.
“Like Tradeling, MODIFI believes that commerce is a key driver of development around the world, and we are happy to allow local buyers and sellers to grow their businesses,” Holzner said in the announcement.
