Let’s get started.

What Is Lulapay?

Lulapay is South Africa’s first Buy Now, Pay Later solution that ensures suppliers no longer have to worry about when their customers will pay. 

On top of that, Lulapay helps SMEs manage their cash flow.

But how?

Lulapay will settle a business invoice upfront, and offer them 6 months of extended payment terms. 

This frees up cash flow – allowing customers to spread the cost of invoices over multiple months. 

Now, let’s take a look at how Lulapay works.

How Does Lulapay Work?

Lulapay’s process can be broken down into 4 simple steps:

  • Register supplier: Suppliers can register as Lulapay Partners with one simple link.
  • Invite customers: Lulapay Partners can invite their customers to complete a short online application form to open a Lulapay Facility.
  • Open Lulapay Facility: The dedicated Lulapay credit team will assess a customer’s application and open a Lulapay Facility for them.
  • Settle invoices: Once opened, customers can choose to withdraw from their Lulapay Facility to settle invoices with their supplier.

But can everyone use Lulapay?

Who Is Lulapay For?

Lulapay’s goal is to improve the cash flow of SMEs in South Africa.

So, Lulapay caters to a large variety of business types and industries. 

However, helping SMEs with their cash flow problems requires responsible lending. We don’t want to indebt small businesses unnecessarily as we believe they are the future of our economy.

So, there are 2 basic requirements to open a Lulapay Facility:

  1. The customers’ business must be trading for at least 12 months.
  2. A minimum turnover of R40,000 a month is required.

Now that you know what Lulapay is, how can Lulapay help you?
