FAQ’s

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?

We purchase a set dollar amount of your future Visa/Mastercard sales at a discount, in exchange we pay you cash today. Then, through an automated process, we seamlessly collect the set dollar amount by taking a small percentage from each of your future Visa/Mastercard sales. Our merchant cash advances are a terrific alternative to those who have been unsuccessful in obtaining business loans.

Merchant Capital Direct approves applications within 24 hours and funds within 5 business days. Unlike banks and finance companies; that may take weeks to obtain or even receive an answer, we work quickly to get you the cash you need.

WHY IS MCD THE MOST FLEXIBLE OPTION AVAILABLE TO MANAGE MY CASH FLOW NEEDS?

We are not a lender or a traditional source of financing! No hoops to jump through, no tax returns, no personal liens, no cumbersome fixed loan repayments keeping you up at night and no bankers saying “no.“
Unlike traditional loans, there are no fixed payments to worry about. We simply buy a portion of your future Visa/Mastercard receipts; in exchange we pay you cash today and, here is the best part, we only get paid as quickly as your business allows. In other words, the amount that you pay MCD each month is determined by how well your business performs. We are true partners in your success.

We often offer larger advances at better terms then our competitors and will pay off your existing advance if it is in your business’s best interest. Contact us and find out how much you are qualified to receive – please have your current balance from your current provider available when you call.

WHAT CAN THE MERCHANT CASH ADVANCE BE USED FOR?

Merchant Capital Direct places no restrictions on how you choose to use the cash. Common uses include the purchase of inventory, purchase of equipment, remodeling, expansion, advertising, payoff debt and taxes.

WHY SHOULD I AVOID A BROKER OR “REP” WHEN SEEKING A MERCHANT CASH ADVANCE FUNDING?

Quite simply they add little value; they actually add time to the funding process and very often add cost. Because they simply throw your application over to another company for underwriting they have no control over the process – this places you one step further away from the underwriting team – the very people who want to understand your business. You will deal directly with our in house underwriters. Brokers and reps often charge finders fees and other “brokerage commissions” just for the act of faxing your application to multiple funding sources.

IS THERE AN APPLICATION FEE?

NO! There is no cost or obligation associated with submitting the application and processing statements. Once submitted we will provide you a proposal for funding and you can make the best decision for your business.
