How it works


Apply in 3 simple steps and
get pre-approved instantly

Our all-digital credit application process is quick and easy and typically takes less than 10 minutes. We ask for basic information about you and your business. We ask you to securely connect your online banking information. And as soon as you're done, we'll tell you exactly how much you can borrow - all without hurting your credit score.


Draw what you need, when you need it

When your application is complete, you'll know exactly how much you can borrow, but only you know how much you actually need right now. Make individual draws from within your overall business loan limit, each with their own fixed fees and terms. All pricing is up front, with nothing hidden in the small print.


Use our support for whatever you need

Choose the repayment schedule that makes sense for your business—from daily, or weekly payments, or pay early to save on interest. Borrow from $5,000 to $300,000 on 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 or 24 month terms, with absolutely no hidden fees.
