Whereas some of the banks which provide with e-commerce loans / online seller finance are:

1.      Bajaj Finserv –

The introductory pricing being:

Loan BandROI
> 20012.25%
100 – 20012.25%
50 – 10012.50%
20 – 5012.75%
5 – 2012.99%
3 – 513.50%
1 – 313.99%

2.      Bitbond – in which they provide an amortizing loan at an effective APR of 9-45% and the data which is used for credit check is:

  • eBay
  • Paypal
  •  Other business accounts

And the qualification requirement for it is min. 1 year in the business as an online seller on one of the platforms which are available to connect.

3.      Indies – borrower can borrow between Rs 1 Lac to Rs 50 Lacs

4.      Capital float – the borrower can borrow from Rs 1 Lac to Rs 1 Cr.

5.      Financebazaar – unsecured loans @ 11% flat

When the borrower applies for a bank loan the bank would ask the borrower for a large number of data points. However, it’s unlikely that they would have a look at the  Amazon or eBay account history or any other e-commerce platforms where a borrower might be selling. Since banks don’t access this data, it’s thus more difficult for them to assess the creditworthiness. This thus results in longer approval times and higher rejection rates.

Lenders who specialize in the online retailers consider the particular needs of their borrowers and thus jump in order to fill the gap that banks leave in this segment. On all of this borrower can connect to one or more of the online accounts in order to prove the creditworthiness. Interest rates thus tend to be higher than for the bank loans. At the same time, these providers are thus faster and are more convenient to apply to.
