Trade credit

Credit one firm grants to another firm for the purchase of goods or services. That is, when the goods are delivered, the recipient does not have to pay immediately for the goods - a credit is given with terms for payment (say 30 days). This potentially allows the vendor to sell the goods and use the sale proceeds payoff the credit obligation.
