Cash Advance

If you’re a retailer wanting to access finance to grow your business, without the hassle of applying for a bank loan, then CASH ADVANCE from Sureswipe may assist you.

Cash Advance is a business loan that’s tailored to your growth needs, giving you access to cash when you need it the most.

You can use Cash Advance as working capital to fund much-needed store upgrades, or purchase unique inventory items, or get that delivery vehicle you need to shift your business into a higher gear. So, why waste time filling in reams of application documents to access cash
when you can easily apply for a Cash Advancetoday.

What is a Business Loan?

Cash Advance is not a traditional loan, it is a business loan – a factoring product that takes future retail sales into account. Consider it a lump sum cash payment to you, to be paid back at a pre-determined rate of time based on a ratio of your future card sales.

  • With a Cash Advance from Sureswipe, your business gains access to cash to be paid off from your future card swipes at a fixed rate or variable daily rate, depending on your particular needs.
  • The Cash Advance application process is quick and easy – money can be in your account in as little as 10 working days. Because these funds can be used to grow your business how you see fit, you won’t be liable for hidden costs or penalties.

Who is Cash Advance Best Suited to?

  • Independent Retailers: Already proving a saving grace for numerous Sureswipe retail clients, Cash Advance can help independent retailers gain access to money in a quick and easy way in tough economic cycles – particularly when banks aren’t as forthcoming with finance.
  • Restaurant Owners: If you want to buy new furniture to improve the look and feel of your establishment or if you’ve come across high-quality kitchen stock at an attractive price, you can use Cash Advance to fund your needs.
  • Health & Beauty Providers: If you run a beauty salon or even if you’re a chiropractor or physiotherapist, you can unlock a world of revenue growth potential by investing in new technology. Technology costs often come in lump sums, and you can use Cash Advance to fund much-needed tech.
  • Franchisors & Franchisees: The franchise landscape is becoming increasingly competitive as more local brands take to the scene, and established international brands turn to SA to grow revenue. You need to spend cash on upgrades to remain relevant, and a Cash Advance can help you make the changes you need to make now, instead of later.

Potential Cash Advance Use Cases

• Finance for Refurbishments
You can use Cash Advance to make upgrades to your outlet, such as décor revamps or security upgrades.

• Working Capital
You can also fund stock. If a supplier has an appealing, time-sensitive offer on bulk goods, you can use Cash Advance instead of raiding your working capital.

• Growth Finance
If business is booming at your original outlet and you want to emulate this success elsewhere, you can leverage Cash Advance to fund your next store. Pay your lease deposit, use it for store-fitting, or buy your first batch of stock.

• One-off Ventures
Let’s say you own a restaurant and one of your wine merchants calls to say they’ve got a batch of premium, export-quality vino for you at a price you will never see again. You know you can sell this wine at a great margin, but your current cash flow doesn’t allow for the purchase, Cash Advance can provide the bridging finance.

The Benefits of Cash Advance

Receiving a traditional loan from a bank in today’s economic environment can prove challenging for small, medium, and even large businesses. To qualify for a bank loan, company owners need to meet rigorous requirements, including:

  • Submission of numerous company documents
  • Inclusion of personal financial statements
  • Projections and business plans
  • Proof of tax return compliance.

Many business owners navigate all of this red tape, but only a small percentage of bank loans are actually approved. Banks require asset security against a loan and because their loans are paid back in fixed monthly lump sums, there’s not much flexibility for you during those tougher revenue cycles.

Sureswipe’s Cash Advance solution offers a simple application process with a short initial assessment questionnaire in which your suitability and eligible funding amount will be assessed immediately.

  • Your Cash Advance can be approved and paid to you in as little as 10 days and you are free to spend this money on your business in any way that you think will help you grow revenue.
  • There are no hidden costs or penalties involved when it comes to Cash Advance, and no personal financial insurance required for you to take on the loan.

How Cash Advance Works

We know how challenging it is to run a business, particularly when it comes to cash flow and we provide you with a way to fund your business’s own growth. We simply take a fixed or variable percentage of all future card transactions until the agreed repayment value is reached, so you can concentrate on growing sales instead of whether or not you can pay back a daily fixed debit order.

Cash Advance from Sureswipe is tailored to the specific needs of your business and all costs associated with the facility are made fully transparent – to be agreed upon jointly upfront.

  • The Cash Advance amount you qualify for is determined by your business’s previous six-month average card turnover (swipes). We use this data to pinpoint the exact amount of cash that you qualify for.
  • Once this calculation is complete, you can assess your tailor-made cash solution and agree on the total amount to be repaid – based on a fixed or variable percentage of your daily card turnover.
  • Cash Advance funds are paid into your bank account for the business to use in any way to grow revenue.
  • Instead of a monthly loan repayment premium like a bank loan, over each trading day you’ll pay back the Cash Advance at the agreed percentage until the full amount is settled.

4 Steps to Access Your Cash Advance

  1. You Submit Your Application
    Sureswipe’s consultants will assist you in applying for Cash Advance every step of the way. Complete your application form, submit it together with your FICA documents and assess whether you qualify for cash.
  2. We Process Your Application

  3. You’ll Have Feedback Within 5 Working Days
    Once we’ve informed you that you’ve qualified for a Cash Advance, and you agree to the repayment terms that have been customised for you, you can expect the cash to be in your account within 5 working days of application approval.
  4. We Deposit Money in Your Bank Account
    Once the money has cleared in your bank account, you can go ahead and make those purchases you’ve been holding back on. Remember, you can use this money as you see fit, and we do not hold you liable for any penalties based on how you spend your Cash Advance.
