Carrier Factoring Mythbusters: Minimum Volumes

InstaPay never requires its carriers to factor a minimum volume of loads— but other companies might.

Minimum Volumes in Factoring

Factoring companies have traditionally required monthly volume commitments from carriers. If a carrier doesn’t meet the minimum amount, there could be in increase in the factoring fee or extra fees. This has changed as some companies allow carriers to select the customers and invoices they want to factor.

Carriers often believe this myth: factoring is all-or-nothing. Carriers can actually find a company who will factor only the loads they want. There is no obligation to do all their business with just one factor.

To choose which loads to factor, a carrier is able to print and scan a select group of freight bills from its accounting system, or scan the load paperwork directly using a vendor’s mobile app.

Once the documents are uploaded to the factoring company, the carrier receives electronic payment in their bank accounts on the same or next day, depending on the time of day the transaction was completed. InstaPay has an online portal that allows carriers to submit new invoices, view invoice history, view customer lists, and check broker credit for free.

There are many factors out there who give carriers hassle-free experiences without the carrier having to sacrifice freedom to factor how they want!

Heading

This is some text inside of a div block.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
