What is Merchant Cash Advance?

Merchant Cash AdvanceA merchant or business cash advance is a financial tool for small and medium-sized businesses that need working capital. Merchant cash advances are not loans. Unlike a business loan, merchant cash advances typically do not require a personal guarantee, liens or collateral, do not have a fixed payment schedule, have no absolute obligation to repay (the buyer assumes the risk of non-payment), and no restrictions are placed on use of funds.

The merchant cash advance provider purchases a specific amount of future credit card receivables from the business at a discount and receives a small percentage of the owner’s daily future credit and/or debit card receivables. Each time a sales transaction is made, a percentage of the card receivables is forwarded to the cash advance provider or purchaser until all of the purchased receivables are forwarded to the merchant cash advance provider. Repayment follows the owner’s revenues and is directly related to the success of the owner’s business.
