Shopify Issued $93M in MCAs and Loans in Q2, Has Begun Offering Funding to Non-Shopify Payment Customers

| By:

shopify glyphShopify, a publicly traded e-commerce platform, is quickly growing its merchant cash advance and loan originations through its Shopify Capital brand. The company issued $93M in Q2, up 36% year-over-year and an increase from the prior quarter of $5.2M. Shopify’s loan product is only available in Arizona, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

The company also recently began offering funding to merchants who don’t use Shopify Payments but still use the Shopify platform.

On the quarterly earnings call, Shopify CFO Amy Shapero said in doing so “we still have significant visibility into their operations, we see their orders, we see the engagement with the platform. And so, we are very comfortable moving in that direction.” The move provides an opportunity to expand their eligible market by 10%, she added.

Furthermore, Shopify’s deals are performing well, the company claims. Shapero said “we’ve actually managed our loss ratio in a very, very tight range. In fact, it’s lower than the top of the range where we think we could go with this, which says the power of our algorithms are working.”

Shopify Capital has originated more than $180M in 2019 so far, indicating they may be surpass many competitors in the rankings this year. The company originated $277.1M in 2018.
