Amazon Quietly Funding Small BusinessesDecember 30, 2013 | By: Sean Murray
Ever since Amazon announced their exclusive business loan program last year, they’ve been quietly booking deals. I say quietly because no one really talked about it much ever since. Though the loan program is available only to qualified Amazon.com merchants, it’s very similar to how Kabbage started off with eBay. Amazon’s Business Loan program has all the bells and whistles of merchant cash advance financing and their clients tend to have huge daily sales volumes.
So are they really doing deals? You betcha they are. Secured Party Name: Amazon Capital Services. I wonder if any of their merchants would do a fixed ACH deal.
