A Merchant cash advance (also known as business cash advance) is the sale of part of a business's future revenue in exchange for a lump sum of working capital. Merchant Cash Advance repayment amounts are a factor — or fixed percentage — of your sales. You'll always know what your repayment amount is since the factor will not change. Customers typically make daily or weekly payments via ACH or a percentage of daily credit card sales.

Merchant Cash Advance vs. Business Loans

Merchant cash advances and business loans are often lumped together because they are both specific types of funding intended for businesses. A business can apply for either an MCA or a business loan, and, once approved, will receive funds from the lender. However, the funds from a business loan and the funds from an MCA are two very different things.

Funding from a business loan is just that: It's a loan that you repay, with interest, over a set repayment period. Funding from an MCA is technically a "cash advance," in that the lender purchases a portion of your future sales. In effect, the lender owns a portion of your future sales, and they collect a percentage from these sales until you've paid off the balance and the initial forwarding fee. There is no set repayment period or interest rate with an MCA.

Whichever loan you're looking at, both have advantages and disadvantages you should take into consideration.
