Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any fees to apply?

No. There are no application fees.  


How long does it take to get setup?

It typically takes between 3-10 business days for the initial underwriting and funding process. After that, on average, we fund within 24 hours of invoice receipt. In most cases, we fund same-day.


What can I expect during the application and funding process?

Below is an overview of Velocity’s process from beginning to end:

  • Receive completed application and AR aging for initial review
  • Provide Proposal and Complete Underwriting
  • Our operations team will set up the new payment address and verify the invoices with your customer
  • You’ll receive the advance within 24 hours of verification 
  • We will monitor the invoices and manage collections so you can concentrate on growing your business. 
  • Your customer pays us and we return the rebate (amount not advanced less the factoring fees) to you.


What types of business can factor?

Many types of businesses can benefit from factoring. At Velocity, we specialize in Oil & Gas service companies such as Welding, Roustabout, Trucking, Sandblasting, Rig Moves, and Oilfield Construction just to name a few but also welcome other industries such as staffing, manufacturing, and more.


Do you work with start-up companies?

Yes! In fact, many start-up companies use factoring to generate the cash flow needed to establish and grow their business.

Factoring with Velocity may be a great solution to obtaining working capital if your company:

  • Is free of tax liens (or has a payment plan in place)
  • Has unpaid receivables that are not pledged elsewhere
  • Invoices customer upon completion of work or delivery of goods 
  • Can provide supporting documentation for the invoices (i.e. - approval signatures, field tickets, water/disposal tickets, bol’s, etc.)
  • Serves customers that have net terms ranging between 15-75 days, good communication and/or online systems, and good commercial credit 
  • Has average monthly sales of $50K to $5MM
  • Is looking to work with a factoring team that cares about you, your customers, and your business!


What if my personal credit isn’t very strong?

Don’t sweat! Although we do review personal credit, one of the great things about factoring is that we rely the most heavily on the credit-worthiness of your customers. If you work for quality companies that have good commercial credit, it’s unlikely your personal credit will affect our ability to fund.


Will Velocity communicate with my customer?

Yes. Throughout the relationship, Velocity may reach out to your customer to update the payment address on file, submit or verify invoices, and manage collections. With Velocity taking on some of invoice management duties, you’ll have more time to focus on building your company.  With that in mind, we also understand how important your customer relationship is to your business so it is always a top priority for our team that any communication with your customer is courteous and professional.


Do I have to factor all of my invoices?

No, you choose which accounts to factor. With no monthly minimums, you can factor as much or as little as you need on approved accounts.


Do you charge to review credit of my potential new customers?

No. We believe, whether you plan to factor them or not, it’s in everyone’s best interest for our clients to have good credit information available to them when making the decision to do business with a new customer.


What happens if I’m already factoring or receiving financing from another company?

We’re happy to help you review your current financing arrangement. If a buyout is appropriate, Velocity will work with your current finance company as well as your customers to ensure the smoothest transition possible for you.


Can I visit your office?

Absolutely! In fact, we’d love to visit with you in person, whether you are an existing or a potential customer. Since we are located in downtown Midland, we are easily accessible to all of our customers in West Texas and the surrounding areas.
