PayBlok: Supply Chain Financing on the Blockchain by InstaSupply.

Important Announcement

We have decided to suspend the public sale of Payblok because:

  1. We are securing enough funding needed to execute our roadmap

  2. The strategic nature of some of these funds enable us to deliver on our vision to provide business financial services in 6 months instead of 18 months.

We are really excited about this and what it means for the company and expect to be able to share more details by September 21.

Any non-institutional funds that participated in the pre-sale will be refunded by August 17 as a condition of securing these funds. We are determining the best ways to distribute PayBlok to our user network in the future and will have a decision on this by December 2018.

The InstaSupply platform

Aiming to improve how quickly businesses pay and get paid, InstaSupply is a cloud platform which allows businesses to track and control spend across suppliers. We bring together purchase ordering; approval workflows; budget control; delivery tracking; supplier and product management; secure invoice and credit document storage and data collection; accounting reconciliation; and payment control.

A sizeable problem

Small businesses have $20T+ in outstanding receivables, take an average of 60 days to get paid, with 50% still paid late. Options for solving these challenges are expensive and limited, but InstaSupply is already involved in tracking and reducing this kind of issue.

A working solution

The InstaSupply platform is already supporting the trade of over 2300 businesses, and is growing daily. By allowing businesses to match purchase orders to deliveries, and finally to invoices, we provide them with an opportunity to control which invoices should be paid, and which require further investigation. What's more, with our Payment Run product, businesses can group together the approved invoices, apply any outstanding supplier credit, and generate a list of payments to be made to suppliers through their traditional banking services.
