Tradeling, a B2B eMarketplace focusing on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, announced Tuesday (Jan. 4) that it has launched a partnership with the FinTech MODIFI.

In an announcement posed on MODIFI’s website, the companies say the partnership will support Tradeling users engaged in digital trade finance. With MODIFI’s help, Tradeling customers will get payment terms of 30, 60 or 90 days, while paying their suppliers early.

“The partnership will further help businesses to secure additional liquidity to fund trades where traditional financing solutions cannot help,” said Tradeling CEO Marius Ciavola. “It will increase their buying power and qualify them for discounts, which will enable companies to further improve margins and make their operations more profitable.”

MODIFI CEO and co-founder Nelson Holzner said the MENA region is an important market for the company.

“Like Tradeling, MODIFI believes that trade is a key driver for development around the globe, and we are happy to enable local buyers and sellers to grow their businesses,” Holzner said in the announcement.
