American Express® Merchant Financing
American Express® Merchant Financing loans are commercial loans secured by business assets, excluding real property and motor vehicles. Merchant Financing is not a purchase/discounting of receivables or a cash advance. To be eligible for a Merchant Financing loan, your business must accept the American Express® Card and satisfy other eligibility requirements. A business can have only one Merchant Financing loan at a time. Not all industries are eligible for a Merchant Financing loan. This offer is only good for this specific invitation for a One-Year Financing loan of $35,000 or less, for which a personal guaranty may be required. A fixed fee ranging from 7%–12% of the loan amount will apply. If you opt for a One-Year Financing loan greater than $35,000, a fixed fee ranging from 3.5%–10% will apply. After you submit an application for a loan, and if approved, we will tell you how much your business can borrow, the fee for the loan and the repayment method, which will each be determined based on the creditworthiness of you and/or your business and other factors. If approved for a loan, funds will be disbursed into your business bank account. Repayment is through automatic debits via ACH every business day in a fixed amount from your business bank account. To remain in good standing, your business must continue accepting the American Express® Card during the term of the loan, meet minimum repayment obligations, and satisfy other criteria contained in your loan agreement. Late fees and fees for insufficient funds may be assessed.
