You will need the credentials that Fortiva sent you right after you completed your training. Please make sure you use the ones for rep.fortivaretailcredit.com, as Fortiva also has a separate portal focused on application stats, which is not covered in this article and won't be the portal you will need to access in order to complete the funding.

Keep in mind that by doing this, you are not charging your customer just yet. You are setting aside the $ amount you have agreed upon from the Credit Limit they have been approved for. This will modify the Open to Buy amount, helping you keep track of what they will still have available if you end up adding any new items to your original invoice.
The Purchase Confirmation Page will display allowing you to review the finance amount submitted. From here, you also have the option to process an additional purchase as needed before exiting the screen.
If you have a wireless printer, you can hit Print Receipt and have your customer sign the Fortiva Retail Credit receipt. If you prefer, you may have the customer sign your company’s estimate or invoice instead. Either way, remember that this is not for the customer's payment. The customer is signing their agreement for the future delivery of goods.
