Abstract: Trade-credit is an influential implementation in financial transactions. This paper proposes an inventory model for decaying items with lifetime under linked-to-order partial delay in payments. More precisely, the items are gradually deteriorating and also have a known maximum lifetime. The payment scheme is structured as follows: if the order quantity reaches a particular level, fully permissible trade credit is possible, otherwise the partial trade credit is offered. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first research incorporating the “Linked-to-order Trade Credit Financing” scheme for deteriorating items with lifetime. Selling price and purchasing costs are not considered equal and there is no need for the interest charged in stocks to be larger than the interest earned on investment. Theoretical results are developed to obtain the optimum solutions of the problem. The authenticity and pertinence of the model and solution procedure are illustrated through numerical results. Finally, sensitivity analysis and managerial insights are provided.
