“We have seen how consumer payments have evolved over decades in comparison to Business-to-Business(B2B) Payments.
SMEs want interest free credit days to make supplier or rental payments. They need to receive invoice payments instantly while being able to provide 60 days interest free credit to their customers. New B2B payments solutions are needed for domestic and cross-border executions for these large number of businesses” says Edmund Louis – CEO SGeBIZ
