Direct, Alternative Retailer Loans

Getting the working capital your retail store needs from a traditional lender can be difficult. The process may take weeks or months, and most funding is denied because traditional lenders often consider retailer funding to be “high risk” due to factors like unpredictable consumer demand, sensitivity to economic conditions, and competition from other retailers.

As an alternative lender, Greenbox Capital can approve more retailer loans than traditional lenders, often in just one business day. We provide a number of different types of small business funding to help grow your retail business, with alternative retailer loans from as low as $3,000 up to $500,000.

How To Use Retailer Funding

A retail business loan can provide the funds you need to meet the unique challenges of running a retail business, such as:

  • Seasonality—some estimates suggest that roughly 20% of retail sales occur during the holiday season
  • Growth of online retail threatening small retail outlets
  • High staff and customer turnover
  • Changes in consumer behavior—consumers are prioritizing events and experiences over consumer goods

An influx of working capital can also provide the cash flow you need to improve or expand your retail business. Use your funding to:

  • Expand to a new location
  • Renovate your existing location to create a more welcoming environment
  • Create a website to sell your products online
  • Stock up on inventory ahead of a seasonal or holiday rush, or purchase inventory in bulk at a lower price
  • Create a loyalty program that encourages repeat purchases, such as personalized discounts based on past purchases
  • Offer experiential events in your space, or sponsor events in your community
  • Upgrade your point-of-sale technology
  • Boost your retail business’s marketing and advertising
