Merchant Cash Advance

Smart business funding –  How does it work?

Rather than a loan, we offer unsecured funding by purchasing a portion of your future card sales.

This smarter money management provides flexibility not only catering for your existing requirements but for your future needs. This means you can scale your business your way. And because you’re not tied to any fixed amount, you repay less when things are slow and more when business is flourishing.

Moreover, eligibility is simple; based on your card sales history, your business can access finance equalling its average monthly turnover of credit card transactions. And unsecured funding means you won’t need to use an asset such as a property to secure against borrowing.

There are no interest charges, no hidden fees, no need for a perfect credit score and because it’s not a loan you credit score will not be affected. 75% of all applications are successful and a pre-approved decision is made on average within 24hrs with funds received in 5 days.

Merchant cash advances: Example case

  • A restaurant has a oven/cooker break down in the middle of a busy spell — it needs to be replaced as quickly as possible to maintain sales and reputation.

  • Merchant cash advance is approved based on the previous months card payment transactions.

  • Funds released immediately, so the new equipment can be ordered and installed  on site.

  • Repayments made as a percentage of each card transaction over the agreed period.

A merchant cash advance is a type of business funding that is designed to help businesses gain access to the cash they need in a flexible way. The lender provides the business with a sum of money which it pays back through a percentage of its customers’ card payments. Merchant cash advances are one of the most innovative products in alternative business finance. The concept has only existed for a few years, but it’s already proving very popular with retail businesses and the leisure sector.
