As part of our commitment to our merchants’ continued success and growth, we’re pleased to announce the addition of financing options within the BigCommerce control panel.

Empower your business

Financing plays a critical role in the success of all businesses, from small startups that need an initial influx of funds with a business loan, to established Enterprise-level companies seeking more working capital. 

The most common reasons businesses apply for financing are:

  • Working capital: Working capital is a key indicator of a company’s financial health. It gives businesses some cushion to handle extra costs, the ability to engage in growth campaigns, flexibility to work within the gaps between customer orders and supplier payments, and peace of mind to cover basic expenses during slower periods of business.

  • Asset purchases: Many companies often purchase business assets to maintain regular business operations, such as machinery, vehicles, more office space, and equipment such as computers and furniture. Rather than using working capital, many businesses often apply for financing to cover these purchases.

  • Starting a business: Many new companies need starting funding to get their businesses off the ground running smoothly and comfortably. With the funding gained from Financing, businesses can cover overhead costs, hire personnel, begin marketing campaigns, and more.

  • Growth funding: When a business sets out to grow, extra funding is often required to enable the start of business plans such as hiring more staff, increasing space, international expansion, marketing and ad campaigns, and the expansion of their products & services range.

Adding financing options directly to your BigCommerce control panel gives you the ability to easily learn more about each option, and apply for the financing solution that best fits your business needs.
