Trade Credit Insurance
As technology continues to advance, more options for commerce continue to become available. Where cash and check used to be the preferred methods for exchanging money, now credit cards and even tap-to-pay solutions are the norm.
In the wake of this, new risks have also emerged that can threaten a business’ financial wellbeing. This is where the concept of trade credit insurance has risen to cover this niche vulnerability.Request a Quote
What Does Trade Credit Refer To?
The term “trade credit” refers to a scenario in which a business entity gives credit to a consumer in order to purchase goods or services.
With trade credit, goods are shipped and the receiving party has 30, 60, or 90 days to pay. It’s actual money, just with delayed payment.Apply Now
How Does Trade Credit Insurance Work?
Trade credit insurance protects businesses against the risk of non-payment by their customers. It can be a useful tool for businesses that extend credit to customers, as it provides protection against the risk of non-payment due to insolvency, bankruptcy, or other reasons.

The Importance Of Trade Credit Insurance
Providing a credit option can pose a challenge for many companies because a single late payment or a customer’s inability to pay can dramatically change how profitable a venture is or how cash flow resolves. Thankfully, businesses can protect themselves using trade credit insurance.
Trade insurance coverage removes much of the risk that companies face from parties who don’t pay; instead, accounts receivable can continue on as usual, assured that all compensation owed will be received.
Credit insurance policies also provide information that helps companies to make sound credit choices. This information supports the credit department in the making of decisions more quickly and efficiently.
