Pubs and restaurants benefit from merchant terminal loans

More and more restaurants and pubs are taking advantage of merchant cash advances available to them because the majority of customers use either debit or credit cards to settle the bill.

Merchant terminal loans are advances which can help small firms to access much-needed cash for business recovery or expansion. The amount of the advance will depend on the business’s monthly debit and credit card sales and can be anything up to 75% of the company’s monthly sales average. An agreed percentage of this lump sum is then recouped from each customer transaction until the advance has been repaid in full.
