Merchant cash advance financing is not considered a loan. A merchant cash advance is an advance of cash on future credit card receivables. There is no set repayment term only a set pay back amount. There is no APR for this reason. A flat fee is charged for the use of the money. As a business owner you will be given a term sheet indicating the amount you are borrowing and what your total pay back amount will be (the fee charged for the funding).
Payment Process For A Merchant Cash Advance
Merchant cash advance loans repayment schedule is based solely on the daily credit card receipts. Each day when you batch your credit card sales to your merchant processor a set percentage of those daily sales will go straight to the lender. The percentage is determined prior to funding and is also within the loan documents and loan agreement. The percentage that goes to the lender is called the “hold back.” The hold back is usually between 5% and 40% and is determined during the underwriting of your advance.
Example of $10,000 loan with a hold back of 20% and repayment of $13,000 total ($3000 fee)
Day 1 the merchant does $1000 in credit card sales. At the end of the night when they send their totals in (batching) the merchant processor will send $200 to the lender and $800 to the merchant. Their loan balance will then be $12,800.
Day 2 the merchant only does $100 in credit card sales. Only $20 goes to the lender.
Advantage of A Merchant Cash Advance
The beauty about a merchant cash advance is that the merchant need not be concerned with making loan payments or bouncing payments. The payments are automatically sent to their lender and the loan is paid down. You can concentrate on what you know best, your business.
