FundThrough charges a flat fee of 2-5% of the invoice value.
An exact rate per customer is given once you authorize sharing your invoicing data with FundThrough. Once the rate is given, you may immediately fund the invoice for 95% to 98% (depending on the flat fee) of its value without paying any other fee.
The exact rate for a given customer is based on three factors:
When you click to Fund a given invoice, the exact price will always be displayed in full transparency for your review before you confirm the funding.
FundThrough has no limits on the amounts you can fund. For OpenInvoice suppliers, the company has funded invoices from as little as $500 to $10 million!
Generally speaking, FundThrough will fund invoices that are ‘Approved’ in OpenInvoice; however they do make exceptions for Operators that do not use the approval workflow.
Funding takes three easy steps. Once you connect your OpenInvoice account to FundThrough you will simply:
Funds will be sent via EFT and arrive within 1 business day.
Yes, invoices to any of your buyers are eligible for this program, as long as they don’t already offer you an Early Pay program through OpenInvoice – you can even fund invoices from buyers that you invoice outside of the OpenInvoice network.
This program is enabled by OpenInvoice in partnership with FundThrough, independently of any buyer-run financing programs you may be eligible for. FundThrough will work with you and your individual buyers to get you set up and enable funding.
The first time FundThrough funds one of your customers’ invoice, they will send your buyer’s AP department a document called a Notice of Assignment, you will be copied on that communication. This document instructs the operator to redirect payments to FundThrough until further written notice.
Redirection of invoice payment is common practice for most operators’ A/P departments. Once the redirection of payments is complete, all present and future invoice payments will be made to FundThrough at the time your invoices are due. When FundThrough receives payment on an invoice you did not choose to fund, they will immediately pass the full amount directly to you. This is called a pass through – it happens automatically and there is no cost or fees associated with it.
FundThrough understands different customers have different policies when it comes to payment timing. Receiving payment one or two weeks early or late is not uncommon; however, if the invoice remains unpaid for an extended period of time outside of your customer’s payment terms, FundThrough may ask you to substitute for another invoice of the same value or pay the outstanding balance.
Unlike factoring contracts, FundThrough has no contracts, minimum quota, annual fee, or credit limit that you must follow. FundThrough gives you a self-service experience where you have the power to decide which invoices you want to fund.
Furthermore, FundThrough and OpenInvoice offer a unique product called NetZero, where you receive 95-98% of the invoice value right away, and do not have to worry about how long the invoice is outstanding. Once you fund, there is typically nothing else to do but to use the money to help your business succeed!
FundThrough connects to OpenInvoice through a solution made for oil and gas Service Companies called OpenInvoice NetZero – powered by FundThrough. Made for users of the OpenInvoice network, OpenInvoice Net Zero, eliminates the need for complex and expensive factoring. It is available right from within your OpenInvoice experience, when viewing any eligible Invoice.

FundThrough uses the invoice approval status as part of its funding eligibility logic. On occasion, FundThrough may decide to fund invoices before approval, however it is FundThrough’s responsibility to work with suppliers regarding any invoices that are disputed, short-paid or not paid. Buyers are not on the hook for invalid invoices.
Disputed invoices are usually “covered” with another valid invoice (to same Buyer, or another Buyer), or with cash. It is the suppliers’ obligation to respond to issues regarding any invoice they have funded.
We have kept this process simple for both buyers and the suppliers. Because suppliers can choose which invoices to fund, we send them any payments on unfunded invoices directly, immediately, and in their entirety. Buyers always pay to the same account and their process remains unchanged.
If additional visibility is required, please discuss this with your OpenInvoice Account Manager. We are always happy to help and aim to make life as easy as possible.
Your supplier has chosen to manage his or her Accounts Receivables (A/R) through FundThrough. With A/R Financing through OpenInvoice-FundThrough, you get visibility into the payment of these invoices and, unlike other options your suppliers could use, we give you access to an audit trail showing that payments have been forwarded to suppliers.
Our recourse is with your supplier if you don’t pay an invoice. Should a situation arise where you have fulfilled your commitment to the supplier by paying FundThrough and the supplier actions on the lien, the supplier’s documentation with FundThrough should cover your liability.
Unlike other A/R Financing options, the FundThrough program is designed to minimize administrative work and disruption to your processes.
The only step involved for buyers is to fill out a “Notice of Assignment” the first time a supplier finances their A/R. When you receive this document you:
Once this is done, you continue your A/P processes and make payments as usual.
Note: With typical A/R Financing offers, A/P departments must make payments to different parties on an invoice-by-invoice basis. With FundThrough, operators simply pay FundThrough on ALL invoices. If payment is made on an invoice that the supplier has not funded, FundThrough will pass that payment on to the supplier immediately, in full, and with no fees (“Pass-Through Payment”).
