Consider the case of a grocery store that has had a relatively slow month of sales at the register. In a typical month, the grocery store expects to bring in around $50,000 in sales – but this month was just $20,000. In order to purchase produce for the upcoming month and pay their employees, they need to generate at least $25,000 in monthly sales.
This grocery store could consider using a merchant cash advance. Using a merchant cash advance, they can apply for $5,000 in the form of a short-term loan. Looking at their regular income and expenses, the lender will understand that the grocery story normally generates higher sales, and will be able to repay the $5,000 short-term loan. In exchange for this loan, the grocery store will be required to pay back the $5,000 loan plus interest to the lender.
Some merchant cash advances are provided by a credit card company, based on a percentage of future credit card sales. This type of merchant cash advance has a reputation for coming with sky-high interest rates. Credit card processors can get away with charging lofty rates because they know that many businesses do not want to go through the hassle of getting a loan from a bank or commercial lender to cover the shortfall. In some cases, the business doesn’t have a credit rating and feels that a merchant cash advance is their only option. In many ways, credit card companies know that businesses are between a rock and a hard place when they decide to explore merchant cash advances.
