Powered by the Bill of Exchange
Obillex holds the patent to settling commercial indebtedness via the Ebill. The electronic version of one the most popular instruments in trade, the bill of exchange!
What is a bill of exchange?
An unconditional order requiring the party to whom it is addressed to pay a specified amount to the holder of the bill on a specified date.
An Ebill generated from an invoice
Sharia compliant Ebill generated from an invoice
Sharia compliant Ebill generated from a purchase order
A re-issued and re-distributed O-Bill, I-Bill or P-Bill
What makes the Ebill special?
Its is based on the Bill of Exchange (UK Bill of Exchange Act 1882)
Unlike an invoice, it acts as a transferable security that suppliers can use to pay their own suppliers
As a part of the risk of the Ebill lies with the acceptor of the bill (the buyer), an SME supplier supplying a buyer with a better credit rating, can assume a higher credit rating themselves when selling their receivables. This makes it cheaper for SMEs to generate finance through Ebills as opposed to loans, overdrafts, and invoice factoring facilities.
Types of Ebills
Obillex currently has 4 types of Ebills (electronic bills of exchange) that it provides in its solutions

Help your suppliers convert their receivables into investible securities (Ebills)
What makes the FLOW-bill special is that it allows suppliers to convert their invoices into transferable securities, making it possible for suppliers to pay their own suppliers with their own receivables! Obillex holds the patent to this through the Ebill (Electronic Bill of Exchange)
Obillex has spent several years building and perfecting its trade finance solutions. Obillex holds the patent and technology that allow suppliers of all sizes to convert their trade receivables into securities (Ebills) that they can use to pay their own suppliers or sell to capital market investors
1. Supplier needs extra cash
2. Supplier selects the receivables they want to sell (purchase orders or invoices) and uploads them into your white-label platform
3. The system converts them into Ebills and offers them to investors
4. Our Investors select the Ebills they want and purchase them at a net cost
5. Supplier receives cash from investors
6. Investors wait and collect receivables from the supplier's customer(s) on deferred date
7. We pay you a share of our revenue
HOW IT WORKS
Investors purchase Ebills
Suppliers upload their receivables
