The are extremely helpful, efficient and courteous. The money was deposited in my account within less than 24hrs from time of application. Thank You Bridgement. Really Appreciated.

Fantastic well Organised Company! What a pleasure doing Business with you :) Thank you so much for all your Support A++++
So, when I first saw the pop up on the Net I was a bit sceptic, but I tried anyway just to see what would happen. To my amazement and shock I received a reply within a few hours and it was positive, then I received a mail from a personal assistant to help me with any queries, she was amazing and on time with her replies. Thank you Bridgement! the funds really helped me with purchasing of new equipment.
It was an absolutely mind boggling experience. Fast, no paperwork, answer or money in bank in hours. Excellent service

Apply online in 2 minutes and we’ll let you know what credit limit we’re able to offer you. Once approved, you can then order from your supplier as usual and send us the invoice. You will then be able to choose BridgePay as your payment method and approve the payment - we’ll settle your supplier and your order will be processed. You’ll then repay us over 12 weeks (potentially interest-free). You can even settle early at any point in time without paying any penalties.
