“PayPal Working Capital” charges one flat fee only (without any periodic interest) and merchants can lend 8% of their yearly PayPal revenue (up to 20 000 USD). The fee will be set by PayPal who then removes 10-30% of the merchant’s receipts until the fee is paid back. In the absence of sales on a given day, no repayment collections will be extracted until further sales occur.
Darrell Esch, PayPal Executive says: “We think this is a very natural extension of the business we operate today…We’re in the business of helping merchants fuel commerce. Strong merchants make a strong PayPal.”
