Onramp Funds Changes How eCommerce Companies Get Cash to Accelerate Their Business
Innovative funding model saves businesses 50% versus the competition
By: Onramp Funds
"Onramp consists of a team with a wealth of eCommerce experience and a track record of success in building companies, strong investor team and balance sheet, and a go-to-market strategy and value propositions unique in the space," says Eric Youngstrom, founder and CEO at Onramp Funds. "We know the delicate dance of balancing cash flow, inventory to meet demand, and growing a business. With no other viable options that support specialized eCommerce businesses needs, we developed a solution that is completely aligned with what these small businesses require to be successful."
Typically, eCommerce business owners seek traditional financing products, such as bank loans and lines of credit or credit cards. These all come with extensive paperwork, an approval process that can take up to 60 days, high interest rates, and monthly minimums. eCommerce businesses need cash quickly and can quickly go into debt or fail to meet customer demand if their sales aren't consistent, and they don't have cash to purchase more inventory. All of their cash is tied up in inventory, making it nearly impossible to spend on marketing, operations, headcount and other essential growth initiatives.
With Onramp Funds, customers connect their online store in seconds via Onramp's read-only API and are prequalified in minutes. Once they connect their bank, they can have cash deposited within a day. Qualified customers request a cash amount from Onramp, and Onramp directly makes deposits into their bank account.
Onramp Funds doesn't send a bill or request a minimum monthly payment. Instead, Onramp receives a small fee of gross sales, when the customer sells products and gets paid. This no-hassle, no-worry funding option is much more suitable for the erratic eCommerce market and saves businesses, on average, 50 percent versus banks, credit cards and lending tools.
"We are committed to aligning our success with that of our customers, learning and adapting as we go," says Youngstrom. "Our number one goal is to solve the challenges of eCommerce businesses, making it easier for merchants to build and scale their businesses without the limitations and shackles of traditional lending products. Just like our customers and unlike traditional lenders, we have skin in the game, supporting their goals and rooting for them to succeed."
