Square Capital is Funding $130 Million a MONTH

| By:

Outside the Square Headquarters in San FranciscoToday Square released its Q2 2018 earnings, revealing that in the second quarter Square Capital facilitated over 60,000 business loans totaling $390 million. This is an increase of 22% year over year, and a 13% increase compared to last quarter’s loan volume of $339 million.

Square’s growth was also driven by its Instant Deposit, Caviar and Cash Card products. Additionally, second quarter growth came from Square’s acquisitions, including Weebly, which provides tools to help individuals and small businesses create websites or online stores.   

In today’s earnings call with Square CEO Jack Dorsey and CFO Sarah Friar, an analyst asked about plans for development of Square Capital. In response, Friar said that they plan for Square Capital to grow as the Square customer base grows. But she said Square is also taking more proactive steps to acquire Square Capital customers, including partnerships. Just last week, Square partnered with eBay to make loans to eBay merchants.

“We’re looking to partner [with companies] where their customers look like Square sellers,” Friar said.

Founded by Jack Dorsey and Jim McKelvey in 2009, Square is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices also in Canada, Japan, Australia, Ireland, and the UK. Dorsey is also the CEO of Twitter.
