Ironically, financing is stereotyped as funding from the most conventional form of lenders such as banks, venture capitalists, and credit unions. While these may be the pioneers in the commercial loan industry, there exists variety of options for individuals seeking entrepreneurship. From commercial loans to real estate loans; you can always find a suitable lender.
While conventional commercial lending industry may leave you in an awkward position due to unfavorable risks, it is quite possible to fuel your entrepreneurship journey using alternative and inexpensive commercial loans.
Mostly, when a bank considers you as bad credit, the local hard moneylenders exploit your craving for success, making you succumb to unfavorable conditions. While the risks are reduced in commercial real estate loans, the stakes are higher when acquiring commercial loans. Here are a few options to reduce your risks and stress levels usually accompanied by commercial lending:
Ironically, credit cards are renowned for their high APRs and may sound like a fool’s errand financing a business using a credit card. Well, under right circumstances and a good credit score, you can acquire cards for APRs as low as 16%. Conceivably better than alternative lenders with usual APRs above 40%.
Business Line of Credit
A highly convenient form of commercial lending as it assigns you a lending limit and only charges interest once you utilize the funds i.e. you pay interest only on the amount you use and not on the approved credit limit. Surely a navigator during tough spots.
PayPal Working Capital
A breakthrough for ecommerce entrepreneurs who use PayPal to process their sales. PayPal will allow you to borrow up to 15% of your previous year’s sale. While this service lacks awareness, it is easy to acquire it and repayments are made by deducting a percentage from your future sales.
It started as a payment processing company, which expanded into commercial lending business just like PayPal. The business offers commercial loans based on historical sales. The repayment structure is the same as PayPal.
Humans are conditioned to conventional commercial lending methods to achieve success; however, remember that the leaders are the pioneers who can think differently. It is about time we step up our game!
