How much will this loan cost me?
QuickBridge business loans come with a fixed fee instead of interest. This fee typically ranges from between 10 and 20 cents for every dollar borrowed — though we weren’t able to confirm these numbers when we reached out in June 2020. You can borrow up to $500,000, with terms as long as .
Based on the lowest fee and longest term, these loans come with a starting cost equivalent to an APR that starts around 2%.
How it works
Loans that come with a flat fee instead of interest typically wrap the cost into your balance, rather than charging the fee upfront. Since there is no interest, going for a longer term can lower your repayments without making your loan more expensive. QuickBridge also offers a discount on the fee for repaying the loan early.
With QuickBridge your loan amount, rates and terms are generally based on your business’s cashflow rather than other traditional factors like industry or time in business. The more money your business brings in each month, the lower the fee and higher the loan amount your business can qualify for.
