- In this paper we consider a supply chain consists of a single supplier and a single retailer which has the optimal order quantity. The supplier can offer the retailer short-term financing with a trade credit contract. The retailer has three payment choices: Full Payment; Full Credit; Partly Payment. We study a retailer which is capital constrained how to choose his payment scheme in order to optimize his efficiency. We conclude that the supplier is always willing to finance the retailer at rates no more than the risk-free rate. Furthermore, both profits of supplier and retailer improve with optimal trade credit contracts, and the supply chain efficiency always keeps the same.
