In 2017, an importer of household goods came to Apricity seeking funding for a defined period of time. The importer had the opportunity to distribute goods as part of a ‘special buy’ program. The importer needed funding to cover the period between when the goods were supplied and when the invoice was paid. Apricity was able to fund the invoice, the goods sold out within hours and the importer was able to secure another opportunity to sell goods in this way.
