Merchant Cash Advances
A merchant cash advance, also known as a business cash advance, refers to a lender providing a small business owner with capital in exchange for a percentage of future sales. Unlike traditional bank loans, things like business credit or credit scores don’t factor into the equation, and in many cases, all you need is a good volume of weekly and monthly merchant card transactions to make it work.
You will receive a lump sum cash advance, and the lender will receive a percentage of your business's daily credit card sales until the terms of the advance have been met. For many business owners, merchant cash advances represent a fast and simple way to get capital that may not be available otherwise.
