Ebay Wades Into The SMB Lending Market Helped By Square
eBay announced recently that it would begin offering merchants access to credit in partnership with Square Capital as of Q3 2018. eBay sellers will be able to apply for loans from $500 to $100,000. Square is facilitating the process, which can be done entirely digitally and sees successful applicants receive funds in as little as 24 hours. The partnership is interesting for two main reasons — it signals a deepening commitment from eBay to providing financial products and the joint offering marks another powerful entrant to the SMB lending space.
