Financial Tech businesses can add real value to customer relationships with Banking Circle Lending. Going to the heart of one of the perennial business challenges – that of managing cash flow – Banking Circle Lending enables FinTechs to offer their merchants fast access to cash, without any credit exposure to the FinTech’s business.

Lack of access to funds to keep cash flowing can hold back business growth. Banking Circle Lending provides fast access to cash with repayment options that mirror business success.

FAST ACCESS TO CASH

Banking Circle Lending provides an extra revenue stream for Financial Tech firms, providing them with the facility to offer loans to their merchant customers. Whether a company needs to purchase seasonal stock, refurbish premises, invest in marketing or increase head count, a quick and simple loan could make the difference. But existing business lending models are slow, expensive and inefficient.

FUNDS IN 72 HOURS … OR LESS

Banking Circle Lending is all about quick decisions and flexible repayment options. Rather than the average 60 days it takes a traditional bank to extend a new loan, the entire application process takes up to 72 hours with Banking Circle Lending.

Through Banking Circle Lending, FinTechs can give merchants faster access to cash, with flexible repayment options and personalised online account management.

Merchants will receive an indicative offer within minutes via an online calculator. A binding offer is made within 24 hours after an ID verification and credit review process. Money is received as soon as the next business day.

How it works

The FinTech is provided with a Banking Circle Lending API, to integrate into their own website, creating a seamless, own-branded credit assessment process. Merchants can then use the FinTech’s website to find out if they’re eligible for a loan.

If the merchant is eligible, the loan is deposited into their account as soon as the next business day.

Banking Circle opens two accounts; one for the Lender and one for the merchant. Card scheme payments made to the merchant will be made into the merchant account which immediately deducts a percentage of the merchant’s daily flow as payment into the Lender’s account. The difference in funds is then credited to the merchant. This process is repeated until the loan is paid off in full.
