What funding products do Youlend specialise in? 

YouLend's products are simple, transparent and easily accessible providing clients with a healthy alternative to traditional banking products. 



YouLend’s “Capital” product works similarly to a merchant cash advance. This is a flexible, revenue based option allowing businesses to access cash when they need it and pay it back based on a percentage of their daily revenue. This reduces the impact on a business’ cash flow and allows businesses to focus on growing and developing their business instead of spending time and effort on finance worrying about fixed repayments.

Key details: 

  • Facilities range from £3,000 up to £1,000,000
  • A fast option for finance. With Capitalise’s integrated API with YouLend, you can get a funding decision instantly. You could also draw down on funds in as little as 48 hours from application
  • Repayments are proportional to your merchant terminal sales


Instant Payouts

An alternative option, YouLend’s “Instant payouts” product allows businesses to instantly get funds when they make a sale. This allows businesses to instantly ease their cash flow as and when they need it. Repayments are based upon a fixed interest rate which is agreed upon upfront. Repayments are made automatically, to make the process seamless. 

Who is eligible? 

To be eligible for finance with YouLend you would need to meet at least the following criteria:

  • £1,500 turnover a month in card terminal sales 
  • At least 3 months trading history 

However it's important to bear in mind that all applications are subject to their individual assessment.
