What affects the term of my merchant cash advance?

The term, or length of time, of a merchant cash advance can be affected by several factors, including:

The amount of funding: Typically, the higher the funding amount, the longer the term will be.
The repayment terms: Merchant cash advances are usually repaid through a fixed percentage of the business’s daily credit card sales. The percentage and the duration of the repayment period can affect the term of the advance.
The business’s creditworthiness: If the business has a strong credit score and financial history, it may qualify for a longer term.
The purpose of the advance: If the merchant cash advance is being used for a specific purpose, such as purchasing new equipment or expanding the business, the term may be longer to allow for a longer repayment period.

How do I calculate my merchant cash advance repayments?

To calculate your repayments for a merchant cash advance, you will need to know:

The amount of the advance: This is the total amount of funding you receive from Opalescent Funding.
The factor rate: This is the multiplier that is applied to the amount of the advance to determine the total repayment amount. For example, if the factor rate is 1.2 and the advance amount is $10,000, the total repayment amount will be $12,000.
The holdback percentage: This is the percentage of your daily credit card sales that will be withheld by us to repay the advance. For example, if the holdback percentage is 10% and your business makes $1,000 in credit card sales in a day, $100 will be withheld and applied towards your repayment.

To calculate your daily repayment amount, you can use the following formula:

Daily Repayment = (Advance Amount x Factor Rate) ÷ Repayment Term
