Central payment

Solid financial basis 
for your business

Smooth, efficient and digital

Our central payment is a core component of our range of services and forges a link between our industrial and specialist trade partners. It is the key to smooth and digitalised payment transactions.  

As part of our central payment, specialist trade partners order goods directly from our supplier partners, after which the invoices are sent to us for settlement. We consolidate the individual invoices on the supplier and specialist trade partner side into collective settlements.

On the one hand, we have reliably digitalised our payment transaction process and, on the other, designed it to be as efficient as possible with the effect of reducing the administrative workload at our business partners’ accounting departments.  

At the same time, we assume full del credere liability for all centrally regulated payments to our supplier partners. As a specialist trade partner and supplier, you benefit from our good credit rating.  

Diverse added value through central payment

Optimised payment transactions, financial security and greater flexibility – NORDWEST specialist trade partners benefit from our central payment model in many ways thanks to attractive conditions, bonuses and reimbursements.
