who we are

We’re a financial technology and services company that leverages vast amounts of data to help buyers and suppliers streamline financing. We determine the best approach for each business’ needs and provide the most competitive financing option.

Exchange-Driven Financing

BigCart was founded for a single reason: to simplify the old-fashioned methods of traditional Supply Chain Finance. In the past, buyers easily defaulted if payments were delayed by even one day. And, suppliers struggled to make ends meet if payments were costly and slow to arrive. These complex and inflexible processes not only resulted in a lack of working capital for all, but specifically created an unequal disadvantage for smaller, diverse suppliers.

Realizing the outdated and expended nature of traditional Supply Chain Finance programs, BigCart founders looked to create a better digital solution. With years of collaboration already under their belt, this team of compliance-minded experts developed a platform for quicker, more secure payments—leveling the playing field for small- and mid-sized suppliers.

The result is BigCart. Our proprietary solutions tap into the already existing data within the exchanges used by both buyers and suppliers, fostering greater sustainability, resiliency and diversity. By analyzing vast amounts of data, we confidently underwrite buyers based on past transaction history—providing them with needed payment flexibility—and disburse payments to their suppliers in a fraction of the time. And, our platform provides full transparency for all parties, automating timing, verification and routing procedures.

With BigCart, every party has better financial health for overall company success.
