Terms and Conditions

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.
Working Capital Terms from American Express
Program Enrollment. You must be eligible for Working Capital Terms in to apply to enroll. Before you can submit a loan request, you must submit an application to enroll in Working Capital Terms. Your eligibility to enroll in Working Capital Terms is based on information we have about you, including your credit history. We may not approve, or may revoke your ability to submit, an application if there has been any material changes to the financial condition or creditworthiness of you and/or your business or for other reasons permitted under applicable law. If you are the Basic Card Member on more than one Business Card from American Express OPEN, you may only enroll one of the businesses in Working Capital Terms. Eligibility for the program is conditioned upon your agreement to use electronic records and signatures, and electronic communication (including email), in the origination and administration of funding requests.
Working Capital Terms Program-Funding Requests. The minimum funding request is $1,000 and the maximum funding request is $750,000. To request funds, you must (i) be enrolled in the program; (ii) have identified at least one vendor; and (iii) have linked at least one business bank account. If we approve a funding request, the funds will be automatically sent to the vendor's bank account via ACH within 2 business days. The funds requested will not be sent to you. We may need up to an additional 2 business days to verify the vendor information you provide. We may refuse to send payments to a vendor on your behalf if we determine the vendor is not eligible to receive payments from us. If we are not able to debit an amount equal to the total amount due for a funding request(s) before the twentieth day after the applicable auto-debit date, we will charge a late payment fee. The late payment fee will be calculated as a percentage of the total amount due, which on a monthly basis shall be increased to reflect any unpaid late payment fees until the outstanding balance is paid in full. The amount you can borrow and the fee can change. They are based on the overall financial profile of you and your business, including your history with American Express and other financial institutions, and your credit record data. For your convenience, the amount you can borrow and the fee are always displayed in your Working Capital Terms dashboard. Fees are between 0.5% - 1.75% for 30 days, 1.0% - 3.5% for 60 days, and 1.5% - 5.25% for 90 days. Not all customers will be eligible for the lowest fee. Fees are subject to change.
