Merchant Check Advance

Get the working capital you need in as little as 3 business days. Our Advance is flexible, quicker to close, and requires less paperwork than traditional loans.

Our Merchant Check Advance also referred to as an Electronic Payment Advance (EPA) is not a loan; it is an upfront lump sum cash payment against future sales or revenues collected through electronic means.

Our EPA is based on all your business receipts that are or can be converted to electronic payments (i.e. - everything but cash collections)

How is this different from our traditional Merchant Cash Advance program?Our EPA is a perfect solution for businesses that don't currently accept credit cards (or have a small amount of credit card sales to overall sales) yet receive most of their sales in the form of business and consumer checks, ACH bank transfers, and wires.

The amount a business qualifies for is based primarily on its historical monthly gross revenues and second, its average monthly electronic payment volume. This differs from a traditional business cash advance in that the amount of funding advanced is typically calculated using a business’s future credit card receipts only.

Many of our satisfied clients use this fast, flexible funding option as OPPORTUNTIY CAPITAL to take advantage of circumstances that come along such as:
  • Make a purchase for something you can sell for a big markup/profit
  • Purchase something that could save you more money than your spending- like buying vs. leasing equipment, or getting a big bulk purchase discount
  • It makes sense if you need the money to take advantage of an opportunity in two weeks or less
  • It makes sense if you don’t have a strong credit history that would limit your access to traditional bank funding
  • It makes sense if you don’t want to use personal assets for collateral
