Frequently asked questions
What is a merchant cash advance?
A merchant cash advance is a lump sum payment, offered to a business based on its average debit and credit card sales. The business pays back the advance by giving the funder an agreed percentage of its future card sales.
My business is new, so we don’t have a long history of card transactions. Can I still get a merchant cash advance?
Merchant cash advances can be the perfect option for new businesses. Our unique relationships with specialist funders mean we can organise merchant cash advances for businesses that have traded for just three months. To be eligible, your business needs to be turning over a minimum of £2,500 a month in card sales.
Is credit history taken into account?
A merchant cash advance is worked out primarily based on the value of average card sales. This makes it a good funding option for newer businesses, without a long-established credit history. While your credit score is also taken into account, this model also makes it a feasible option for businesses with imperfect credit ratings.
How much will I have to pay back?
With a merchant cash advance, you only pay the loan back when you make money. Repayments are made as a set, agreed percentage of future card sales. This means you never have to worry about making a late repayment. It also helps ensure payments are always affordable, because they go up and down in line with your company’s income. During periods of very successful trading, you can clear your loan more quickly, while in the months you make fewer sales, you pay back less. If you make no card sales one month, you simply pay nothing back.
What can I use a merchant cash advance for?
You can spend a merchant cash advance on anything relating to your business, for example to buy new stock or equipment, to expand a business premises, or to pay employee wages.
