It's all about the Annual Percentage Rate (APR). Here’s why.

No matter how long you’re borrowing money or the exact repayment schedule, you need one ruler to compare your costs.

The APR is that ruler. It tells you the total cost of borrowing for the year as a percentage of the amount that you’re borrowing.

For cash advances, we convert the factor rate into an estimated APR based on your monthly sales.

With term loans, we use the interest fees, repayment method, and frequency of repayments to estimate the APR.

How do I calculate the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of an ecommerce loan?

APRs for ecommerce loans are tricky because many ecommerce financing options actually aren’t traditional term loans, but cash advances (or merchant cash advances).

This matters because cash advances don’t have the same legal obligation to disclose the APR. Instead, they charge a fixed amount of fees that are based on your future sales or deposits in online accounts. Those deposits could be in your Paypal, Shopify, or Stripe accounts.

Can the APR of my ecommerce financing change?

Since you repay cash advances based on your business’s future sales or deposits, the term of the financing and the frequency of the repayments can change based on your sales and deposits.

This makes it difficult to calculate the exact APR for cash advances before you fully repay the amount that you borrowed. Still, in order to compare this form of business financing with traditional loans, it’s helpful to estimate the APR.

How do I calculate the cost of cash advances?

Usually, cash advances talk about their cost in terms of their factor rates.

Factor rates are a simple ratio between the amount of cash that you’re borrowing and the total fees that you’re charged.

The factor rate will depend on your industry, time since your business’s establishment, credit history, and most importantly your sales history.
