With transparent information from CAN Capital, you can decide right away if this is a good loan for you and your business.

Prepayment Discount

Actually, CAN Capital rewards companies that payback their loans early with a six percent prepayment discount on the FULL outstanding balance after 90 days (if the account is in good standing). When you apply for a loan with CAN Capital, this information is in their Business Loan Agreement.

Fast Funding

Loans from CAN Capital are ideal for businesses that need fast access to small amounts of cash (two days to funding). Most banks won't even look at loans under $50,000, and many alternative lenders only provide minimum loans of $5,000. With CAN Capital, you can get a $2,500 loan. To qualify for higher loans, you must be making more than the minimum requirement each month.

The Bad

  • Interest Rates
  • Small Loans
  • Missing Information

Interest Rates

The majority of people think that the most important aspect of a business loan is the interest rate, and we tend to agree with them. When you take out a loan with CAN Capital, you will pay about $0.35 in interest for every $1 you take out. These calculations are based on CAN Capital's own calculator - taking out a $100,000 loan for 12 months. However, these rates go down with your term length. For example, if you only need to borrow cash for four months, CAN Capital charges around $0.15 per $1 borrowed.

Small Loans

The annual revenue requirement is high with a minimum of $150,000. The highest amount CAN Capital will lend is $150,000 - slightly lower than the average. But if you want to access this much cash, your business needs to generate around $1 million in monthly sales. As far as we can tell, no other lender has such high revenue requirements.

Missing Information

CAN Capital has no prepayment penalties and no closing costs. Even though these are great features, they do not display this information on their website.

The Bottom Line

A business loan from CAN Capital is one of the best options out there. Businesses should remember that while their interest rates may be as low as 15 percent, they could reach as high as 35 percent. CAN Capital is an industry leader in terms of providing a top-notch service for small businesses based upon the following criteria: They provide fast access to cash, have no hidden fees, and show actual loan requirements. We definitely recommend using CAN Capital for your business loan needs.

    Everything went smooth, just a minor misunderstanding on when the loan would be funded. But everyone was great to work with, helpful and responsive.

    I really like the idea of a daily payment instead of having to worry all month about making one large payment. I think I am going to start applying this to a lot of my expenses. It is much easier to swallow in little bits. Thank you, Jennifer May, for your outstanding Customer Service

    CAN Capital employees was very kind and pleasant to work with. This was my first time using a company like CAN instead of going through a bank. My only complaint would be being told funding usually takes a day and from the time I was told it was approved it took 5 additional days for funding to be transferred and 1 more day to post. This put me in a tight spot that I could have avoided if I would have know the process would take 6 days. I would definitely use CAN Capital again in the future just remembering to give the process a little more time.

    CAN Capital was great to work with. We had lots of offers from other companies but CAN was quite a bit lower with their fees. Since we are in a very capital intensive business we always need funding for various needs and we hope to have a very long lasting relationship with CAN

    I have been a customer of CAN Capital's for over 10 years. Through good times and bad, they have always been there for me, including in 2008 when the bank pulled my line of credit. CAN Capital was there to help us get through that time and has since assisted us through expansion to a second location. Great people, highly recommended, they are really good to their loyal customers!
