Ecommerce financing

Ecommerce financing is an equity-free capital investment that helps online businesses quickly access capital in exchange for a slice of future sales. This is a revenue-based funding solution that keeps pace as you grow.

Ecommerce financing is not technically a loan, so a personal guarantee is not required, it has no impact on your company’s credit score and there is no interest. Instead, it is a capital investment at a fixed price and the business retains 100 percent equity. Repayments are taken as a percentage of revenue which means that when the business is not making as much money, repayments are lower, and when times are good, your repayment window shortens.

FAQs

Ecommerce financing is a revenue finance solution that can be used to fund a variety of business expenses to help fuel growth. Revenue funding works by granting an advance based on future sales, repayment is then taken as a fixed percentage of the sales as they occur. Lenders are primarily concerned with revenue and gross profit as there needs to be a good margin to allow their repayment from future sales. Some lenders simply offer business funding, whilst others offer additional services complimenting the money and helping businesses with insight to drive business growth.

Ecommerce financing is available to businesses that have a website and receive payments for services. Particularly suited are Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) online retail, Software as a Service (SaaS) businesses, subscription businesses, and online marketplaces. If your business falls outside of those listed, but you receive card payments you may be eligible for a merchant cash advance, which is a slightly different solution.
