What is it?
Instant Pay is a new option for Job offer which allows you to get money for the order (minus a small discount for Xometry) on the next business day (not within 20 days after the delivery (as in case of standard payment terms). The percentage of the discount is calculated for each offer individually, information about its size is shown in the Job Offer with Instant Pay option.
Instant Pay option is available only for some orders and is created especially for you (this option is available only to a few partners).
How it works?
For Instant Pay Offers, you can choose -
 receive payment on the next business day after you took the order into production, but with a small discount for Xometry
 proceed with standard conditions of payment (20 days after delivery on time and 40 days in case of delayed delivery.)
All offers with Instant Pay has special tag "Exclusive Offer with Instant Pay" 
We have published an order for €100 with the Instant Pay option (this offer has 3% discount for Xometry if you want to get paid the next day). You can choose instant pay : in this case you will get €97 ( €100 - 3% discount = €97) next working day or choose standard payment terms , then you will get €100, but within standard terms (20 days after delivery on time and 40 days in case of delayed delivery.)
❗ In both cases, regardless of which option you choose, you will be asked to confirm your readiness to produce this order:
