This amount is based on historical percentage of your average daily receivables. The fixed amount can be adjusted from time to time depending on your future experience. These fixed payments help ensure minimal impact to your cash flow and prevent the snowball effect often caused by missing larger monthly payments. You can request your balance statements and pay off letters by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at (888)-958-3781.

We are faster than a bank or any other alternative provider of funds on the market.

We build your business credit and deduct fixed daily or weekly payments, rather than a batch percentage of your sales.
14What industries do you work with?
We work with more than 700 different kinds of businesses in all 50 U.S. states, including restaurants, retailers, auto repair shops, healthcare professionals, HVAC contractors and many other service providers, provided they are grossing $10,000 per month.
15Why is it so hard for small businesses to get financing?
Small business lending has been slow to recover since the recession. Traditional lenders lack an efficient system to underwrite small businesses, so many tend to defer to the personal credit score of the business owner as a measure of creditworthiness. It’s also cost prohibitive to underwrite smaller sized loans – it’s more profitable to make a $3,000,000 loan than it is a $30,000 loan.
16Why can BizFund approve so many more businesses?
We use our advanced scoring technology to make financing decisions based on the health of the business, rather than a personal credit score. We look at a variety of data points when analyzing businesses, and are able to deliver decisions in minutes or hours and funding in as fast as 1 business day.
17How is a BizFund MCA different from a traditional bank loan?
BizFund is different than traditional lenders in a several ways:
- Our advances are between $5,000 and $250,000, with terms generally between 3 and 12 months. Bank loans are typically larger – up to $5 million – and can have terms anywhere from 2 to 25 years.
- BizFund makes funding decisions in minutes or hours and can deliver funding in as fast as 1 business day, while banks can take up to 2 weeks to review the application and an additional 30 to 60 days to fund the loan if approved.
- BizFund also deducts a fixed, payment directly from your business bank account each business day or weekly, which helps to ensure minimal impact to your cash flow. Traditionally, banks collect payments on a monthly or quarterly basis.
