LianLian partners Uncapped to offer flexible ecommerce financing

Friday 26 August 2022 15:52 CET | News

China-based LianLian Global has partnered UK-based lendtech Uncapped in an effort to bring flexible ecommerce finance options to UK and US-based merchants.

 

The partnership between LianLian Global and Uncapped will allow US and UK-registered ecommerce companies to secure financing from USD 100,000 to USD 10 million without equity, interest or personal guarantees in less than 48 hours. Companies could use the funds to grow their businesses by acquiring new customers, hiring more staff members, and securing more inventory.

According to a report from cbinsights.com, online merchants often struggle to secure funds with traditional lenders, as proven by the fact that Q1 of 2022 had the lowest quarterly total of funding to ecommerce companies since 2020. Furthermore, research from WorldBank reveals that small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have unmet finance needs of approximately USD 5.2 trillion a year which is almost 1.5 times the current lending market for this segment of businesses.

According to LianLian Global, this partnership aims to provide much-needed financing options for ecommerce companies, which can expect a flat fee as low as 2% on the capital provided.
