SGeBIZ and Funding Societies Team Up to Offer BNPL Payment Option for SMEs

by April 24, 2024

Southeast Asia’s SME digital finance platform Funding Societies has partnered with SGeBIZ, a provider of digital procurement, payment, and sourcing solutions, to introduce embedded finance solutions for SMEs in Singapore.

This collaboration aims to integrate Funding Societies’ financing capabilities into SGeBIZ’s EzyProcure platform through a “Buy Now, Pay Later” (BNPL) feature.

The initiative will reportedly benefit over two thousand businesses using EzyProcure, predominantly from the food and beverage sector, by providing customised financing solutions to aid in cash flow management.

This move is expected to enhance the financial agility of SMEs by enabling them to manage their procurement and payments more effectively.

EzyProcure, launched in 2016, is a cloud-based platform that automates ordering, invoice reconciliation, and payment processes for businesses, particularly in the food and beverage industry.

The platform helps replace manual processes with streamlined, digital solutions, freeing up valuable resources for business growth.

Since its inception in 2015, Funding Societies has facilitated over S$5 billion in business financing, positively impacting over 100,000 SMEs across its operating regions, which include Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
