What is a merchant cash advance?

Frequently asked questions.

What's the difference between business loans and a merchant cash advance?

Business loans and a merchant cash advance act quite differently. Business bank loans can have stricter eligibility requirements and fixed monthly payments, making it difficult to fit repayments around cashflow. A merchant cash advance can be a more flexible solution as it can be a quick way for businesses to get a boost in their cash and future card sales.

With a merchant cash advance, there are no fixed repayment periods. You'll be able to repay as you trade, meaning that if your business is expecting a slow period, the payments you make are adjusted to suit you. You also won't need to worry about making manual payments. You'll automatically pay on a fixed percentage that is taken from your future debit and credit sales.

With a cash advance, there is no fixed term or fixed monthly payments. Instead, you'll automatically repay via a fixed percentage that is collected off your future debit or credit card sales until the total amount has been repaid. For example, if a customer pays you £100, £85 of this would go to you and the reminder would automatically go back to Merchant Money.

As soon as you become a takepayments customer and have 4 months transaction statements, you'll be able to apply for a merchant cash advance. To qualify, you will need the following:

  • Minimum of 4 months transaction statements.
  • Minimum turnover of £5,000 per month through your card machine.
  • No other cash advance currently in place (unless to be refinanced).

To be able to apply for a merchant cash advance, you’ll first need to be a takepayments customer. You can get in touch with our team on 03334 146 395 who will talk you through getting set up for card payments with us. Once you’re a takepayments customer and have 4 months statements from your existing card payment acquirer, you’ll be able to apply for a merchant cash advance immediately.

If you’re already a takepayments customer, you’ll have the opportunity to work with our partner Merchant Money Ltd, who will take you through the application process and if successful, you’ll receive an offer within 24 hours.
