What is the Merchant Marketplace and how does this platform work?
The Merchant Marketplace helps fund small businesses in America that are unable to secure traditional bank loans or lines of credit. Our syndication platform enables investors to invest in these businesses and earn potentially high returns. Unlike a traditional bank, a Merchant Cash Advance focuses on a business's strength instead of their past history and in such, we have a high approval rating compared to traditional lending institutions.Read more
How do we secure our investments?
The Merchant Marketplace educates business owners about the higher costs of a merchant cash advance compared to traditional loans or lines of credit and ensures the business can generate enough profit to pay off the advance. We file a UCC-1 on the business, which acts as collateral in addition to having our merchants sign a personal guarantee of performance. We have an internal and external legal team to retrieve funds if necessary. Over 90% of our funded merchants pay back their advances and use the money for growth, supporting their families and the local economy.Read more

What are the costs to syndicate on the Merchant Marketplace platform?
When investing on the Merchant Marketplace platform as a syndicate, investors can earn a potentially high return on each deal they invest in. However, there are costs associated with bringing the deals to the platform, such as broker commission, syndication fee, and management fee, which are shared pro rata with investors. These costs can vary but are generally 10-15% for broker commission, 2% for syndication fee, and 3% for management fee. An example of how this works is shown with a $1,000 investment in a business called Jim's Jet Rocket Rental, which has a funding amount of $50,000, a 1.45 factor rate, and a 6-month payback term. The total upfront cost for the investment is $1,140, and the potential return after 6 months is $1,406.50, resulting in a profit of $266.50 or a 23.4% return.Read more
