The Ins and Outs of Small Business Financing

Your small business is at a disadvantage when it comes to getting the money that it needs to operate. This is because banks and other traditional lenders don’t want to loan to smaller companies that don’t have a track record or make a lot of money. What should you know about small business financing if you need extra capital to keep your business afloat?

Use Your Credit Card Receipts As Collateral

If your company allows customers to pay by credit card, there is a good chance that you can use those receipts as collateral. You can take a loan from one or more of your merchant accounts and pay the money back slowly over time. The loan terms are flexible and there may be no interest payments required for several months. If you think that you will want a merchant cash advance, contact your credit card processing company ahead of time to make sure your company offers such a loan.

Fund Your Business Through Your 401k Account

Did you know that you could use your 401k to fund your business? The process to do so is fairly simple. What you do is take money from your retirement account to buy shares in your company. There are no fees or penalties associated with this type of maneuver. The IRS considers it to be a type of rollover that any small business owner can use to their advantage.

Your Land Could Be A Source Of Business Capital

You don’t need to rely on merchant accounts or credit card processing profits to secure a business loan. Business owners can use their building or lands as collateral for a bridge loan. The bridge lender puts a lien on your property until the loan is repaid. Interest rates for such a loan are usually lower than other types of alternate funding available.

Don’t Let Your Credit Score Hold You Back

Your credit score shouldn’t prevent you from getting the loan that you need to hire new employees or buy a new machine to expand production capacity. Many alternate financing companies don’t care about your credit score. They are more interested in the health of your business. If you are making money, you should have no problem getting a loan.

There are many ways that your company can get financing. If you or your company has bad credit or no credit, using your assets as collateral can keep your company alive for the long haul.

It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
