Offering Credit Can Increase Revenues
Let our credit professionals at PCM Corp show you the benefits of using our credit application processing services including:
- Creating a custom branded credit application form specific to your business and industry.
- Performing client credit checks on your behalf.
- Helping your business with cross-border credit applications (and collections).
Many business owners and finance professionals know that extending repayment terms to customers is a great way to get more sales. Credit sales can make up a large percentage of your overall sales, so it makes sense that your credit application form is up to date with the latest terms and conditions to protect your business.
Credit application forms can be industry-specific. For example, repayment terms for most businesses are net 30, whereas wholesale food companies are net 7. Dry goods are not perishable so, the length of time to repay can be longer than seven days.

Custom Credit Application Form
It is vital to have a proper credit application form and ensure that your customers complete the credit applications in full. If certain sections on the form are left blank, it prevents you from getting a clear picture of your customers’ credit history. It could also possibly prevent you from being able to collect using the court system if your customers are delinquent.
Priority Credit Management Corp (PCM Corp) has been assisting businesses in developing custom credit application forms since 2005.
Our PCM Corp credit application processing services will work with you to come up with a document that covers all the salient points for your business and industry. That includes branding the credit application form with your company logo and contact details.
We also include verbiage that allows either your firm or ours to perform the credit checks and bank checks, should you wish to outsource credit application approvals to our company.
After 35+ years in the commercial debt recovery industry, we know which terms and conditions work and those that do not.
Cross-Border Credit Application Processing
Unfortunately, of all the credit applications we are given when asked to collect money, 95% percent are unenforceable.
The issue with having your corporate lawyer draft your credit application form is that they only practice in one province, whereas PCM works across North America. Along with cross-border credit applications we can also help with collections.
If your customers are only located in the same jurisdiction as your lawyer, then you are probably fine. Otherwise, you should contact our office for a complete consultation.
