The next evolution of payments model, “buy now pay later” (BNPL), is growing in South Africa and closing the gap for many cybersecurity SMEs who are struggling to get access to much-needed funds.
Over recent years, especially during the onset of the pandemic, banks experienced a massive influx of time-critical loan applications from SMEs. However, the pace of loan approvals from the traditional bank and the red tape involved in acquiring a loan has meant that far fewer SMEs are able to receive the assistance they require within the set time.

Cybersecurity SMEs are contending with a contracting economy, and additional pressure from the Covid-19 pandemic, affecting operations and straining resources. Therefore, a growing number of SMEs are looking at BNPL solutions to continue to operate and thrive.
Maxtec has recently joined the evolution and launched its Pay-Later Solution, with the aim of providing its partners with a facility that will assist them with cashflow and an opportunity to further grow their own businesses/services.
The offering, which is designed specifically for SMEs will give businesses easy access to working capital, which can mean the difference between a good trading month and a bad one. In the current times, it can also be the lifeline a business desperately needs to continue to operate despite the difficulties it experiences.
Maxtec’s payment solution offers peace of mind for its partners, who can immediately access trade credit when they need it the most. It works on a flexible payment option enabling them to choose up to six months to settle invoices. Therefore, they are able to pay just a sixth of the invoice price plus costs on a monthly basis.
Quick and easy
From a costing perspective, the earlier they settle, the fewer fees involved. The first month’s costs are completely free; thereafter, only 2% is charged per month. They can settle early at any time to avoid all future costs.
The solution surpasses the traditional banks, whose processes include filling in huge amounts of paperwork and waiting long periods for approval. Maxtec’s paperless online application process takes only minutes.
Maxtec’s partners get easy access to credit when it’s needed the most and can bypass the process of reapplying for new business finance each time they need a loan. To sign up as a Maxtec partner, visit maxtec.co.za/partners.
The solution boasts sophisticated technology, used to evaluate the real-time performance of an SME to get the best possible funding, providing a decision very quickly.
Some of the other benefits partners can enjoy, include the following:
- Up to six months to pay
- Current credit terms from Maxtec + 30 days interest free
- Access to extended credit terms
- Simple sign-up process without unnecessary paperwork
- Quick access to finance to secure deals
