New sales-based financing to grow your business

by News_Amazon

We’re excited to announce a new sales-based financing solution designed to give eligible sellers on the Amazon store convenient access to the capital they need to grow their business.

With a merchant cash advance from Parafin, your business can receive between $500 and $10 million for a fixed capital fee with a flexible payment schedule linked to a predetermined percentage of your business’s future sales until the funding is fully paid off. There’s no interest, no personal collateral required, and no late fees.

If approved, you can use these funds to cover any type of business expense including inventory management, payroll and hiring, marketing or new product and solution development.

The program is fully digital so you can quickly complete an application online and, if approved, get funds into your account in a matter of days, if not hours.

Go to Amazon Lending to determine if a merchant cash advance is the right fit for your business and to see if you’re eligible to apply.

How do we grow our business when you are always attacking listings because of suspect nonsense. How can we grow business with the most incompetent of all support on this entire planet the “So Called Amazon Seller Support”. How do we make money when you always taking listings down due to pricing errors at the same time You Amazon with conspiring partners in crime UPS/USPS magically up prices and fees during the holidays, yet you expect us to sell at lower prices. So its OK for everyone else to raise prices due to inflation costs except the small business sellers that sell to make a living selling on Amazon. You just keep beating us down every chance you get! When you need to take theses lending financing you may want to rethink entire business and likely best to look at selling items across the more seller friendly platforms but hey we are only here to bow down to the great “JEFF” and all of our blood sweat and tears is only for Amazon profit.

Isnt whats been going on for years just new way of calling it making it sound like its new are sales really that down Amazon is scrounging fees up wherever they can? To me the risk taking this souless money to buy products to hopefully sell on Amazon is just way to high. Maybe its worth it if you need that new hot rod, boat, guns, race horse some pleasure but it is to high of a risk to think of using this money to buy items to sell on Amazon. Remember they track all data and love to compete against 3p sellers…No Thanks… Good Luck EH.

Is anyone even seeing the option to apply with Parafin? I’m not seeing it. I only have options from Marcus and Amazon Lending.

I see the option down at the bottom under Merchant Cash Advance MCA, but since I’m not currently approved I can’t see the fee. However, on the Parafin site they show an example, and it is something over 10%. “No interest” but if you pay it off over a year it is easy to see it is actually “high interest.” More if you pay it quicker.

I used it, and I’m thankful for it. But unfortunately, the account Level Reserve is killing my business’s growth.

All my products are FBA.

We cannot grow business with Amazon as they are reducing weeks to cover down to 2 weeks. Unlimited marketing spend does nothing. Is this just due to Q4 reorganizing within Amazon and closures of many facilities?

We relieved and delighted that our inventory limits were lifted as October 1, 2022. Then- SLAM THE DOORS WERE SHUT. Due the lengthy transit times for shipments we will be forced to reduce ad spend in order to preserve inventory so we do not run out of stock. Lost sales, lost revenue for all parties. .
