Shopify Capital Originated $252M in MCAs and Business Loans in Q3
Shopify Capital, the finance arm of the 2nd largest e-commerce platform in the United States, reported making $252.1M worth of merchant cash advances and loans in the 3rd quarter. This is a 79% increase over the same period last year and spans three markets, the US, UK, and Canada. It’s also a quarterly record for the company.
The figure also solidly trumped the numbers recently reported by rival OnDeck.
Shopify CFO Amy Shapero said that the company has maintained loss ratios in line with historical performance.
“Businesses need financial resources to survive and fulfill their potential especially in these uncertain times and as you heard just now capital greatly increases the value of Shopify to our merchants,” she said during the earnings call.Last modified: October 29, 2020
