Fast, Easy Retailer Funding You Can Trust

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

As an alternative lender, Greenbox Capital can approve more retail store funding 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. We fund all types of retail businesses in Canada, including salons and spas, specialty stores, clothing stores, convenience stores, and more.

Retail Store Funding Rates

Retailer funding rates depend on the type of alternative small business funding you receive. Most alternative retail store funding options use a factor rate instead of a traditional interest rate. Factor rates are simple decimal figures that show how much “extra” you will owe on the original amount of the loan and are determined based on your risk assessment.

Retailer Funding Q&A

How do I get funding for a retail store?

You can get funding for a retail store from traditional lenders like federal funding programs or a bank, as well as from alternative lenders like Greenbox Capital. Alternative lenders have more flexible approval requirements that consider the overall health and potential of your business—not just your credit score—and offer revenue-based financing options that are more ideal for businesses with lower credit scores, such as merchant cash advances. Contact one of our Funding Advisors to learn more.

What do I need to do to qualify for a small business loan?

We have a very simple application process, with same day funding available. To get started, fill out our one-page application form or speak with a Funding Advisor.

Why should I consider an alternative lender for my retail store funding?

Most traditional banks consider retail stores to be high-risk and will not fund them. As an alternative lender, we have different approval requirements, and can approve funding for “high risk” industries. We can provide you with the funds you need to cover project expenses, labour, materials and more, often in less than 24 hours.
