Retail finance to boost your business in the UK

There are plenty of challenges facing today’s retail businesses. Whether you sell online, in the High Street, or through a mix of channels, customer expectations don’t stand still. Success means keeping an eye on both their needs and the bottom line at all times.

Keeping up with changing trends means ongoing investment in point of sale technology, premises and stock. To secure the working capital needed for investment can mean taking a business loan or some other form of business finance.

It can be hard for retailers to get the funding they need. Banks and other lenders can be wary of making loans to firms in this very competitive sector. Because of our unique approach, retailers can find a Spotcap loan more accessible.

How would a Spotcap loan work for my retail business?

When you’re looking for working capital there are plenty of options: merchant cash advances, a traditional business loan or an overdraft facility. It’s important to understand the features of each finance type, because you want one that suits your needs.

What you get with a Spotcap loan is flexibility, convenience and a straightforward approach to loan operation and approval. Unlike other lenders, we use a unique algorithm and expert underwriters to assess your credit risk based on recent performance.

When approved for a loan, you’re given access to a line of credit. From this you draw down funds only when you need them. Each drawdown becomes a loan that’s usually repayable over 7 to 15 months. We keep business loans simple and flexible.

How can my retail business benefit from Spotcap unsecured finance?

Because a business loan from us is not limited to a specific purpose, you can choose how to use it. Your loan could finance:

  • Purchase the latest products

    Satisfy your customers by getting the newest products to them as quickly as possible.. A Spotcap loan lets you invest in inventory that will turn into profits.

  • New point of sale technology

    Payment methods, and the systems to process them, are changing fast. Having funds available to keep up makes it easier for your customers to pay using their preferred method.

  • An eye-catching marketing programme

    Customers often decide to buy based on emotional appeal, meaning your marketing needs to engage their feelings. A business loan can supply the funds needed to invest in excellent design and delivery.

  • A new or enhanced website

    Online retailing is massive and it’s predicted to keep growing. Taking a loan to enhance your website technology and presentation can pay dividends later when customers buy from you online.

  • Unexpected costs

    A Spotcap line of credit gives you access to funds you can draw on at short notice, to cover the unexpected. Our flexible approach means if you don’t borrow from us, there’s nothing to pay.
