Thrivident is the optimal AR solution for manufacturers and retailers.
Thrivident is an accounts receivable support service for manufacturers to help them get paid fast and effectively. We secure surplus inventory from retailers and pay their outstanding balances directly to the manufacturers with cash the next business day.
How it works:
- A manufacturer presents Thrivident via an email intro to the retailer as an approved option to get caught up on past due bills.
- A Thrivident advisor works directly with the retailer to secure enough out of season or dead inventory at a dollar amount that will bring the retail account current. Thrivident secures inventory lists and sends pre-paid shipping labels to the retailer.
- Once the inventory arrives in our Richmond, VA office our team inspects and receives inbound inventory. Upon confirmation of inventory, a manufacturer is paid via direct deposit the next business day.
- Once payment is received by the manufacturer, a confirmation letter is sent to all concerning parties that the debt has been resolved and the account is current.
