Bank Business Loan
The application and approval process for a business loan from a bank is longer and harder than it used to be. For a business loan to be underwritten you need to have several things: good credit, sufficient collateral, good history, financial statements (both business & personal), and if you have all of that it could take weeks or even months for approval. Furthermore, all of that probably won’t matter if what you sell is considered high risk.

And, if you have a Painless Processing merchant account, you are PRE-APPROVED and can get the capital you need to fund your business in three (3) business days or less.

How do I pay back my Painless Business Funding and how long does it take?
HERE’S A GREAT EXAMPLE
If your payback percentage is 10% of each batch and you process $1,000 dollars in credit card sales for the day; $100 dollars automatically transfers to pay down your loan before it hits your bank account and the remaining $900 dollars goes into your bank account.
Painless Business Funding falls into the category of short-term business loans. They a have payback period ranging from 3 months to 1 year with the average loan being paid back in the 6 to 9-month range. However, if you were to need a time extension beyond one year our team will work with you on extending the duration of the note so you can continue to operate with peace of mind.
What if I need more funding?
Painless Business Funding was set up to accommodate the needs of growing businesses. Once more than 50% of the outstanding note and fees are paid back you are automatically eligible to re-advance the note similar to the way a revolving credit line works. This can be done by making a simple request to your dedicated merchant services agent.
Likewise, if a business already has funding but sees a dramatic increase in sales and needs further funding; our team can reevaluate your position and increase your loan amount accordingly.
