What does it mean to factor receivables?

When a company factors their receivables, it means they are “selling” the receivables to a 3rd party collection company in exchange for cash. The 3rd party collection company will then attempt to collect the receivables. The company would pay a transaction fee, which is typically a % of receivables. Companies can factor with recourse or factor without resource.
