Most Helpful Positive User Review
“Swift Capital was the best – and most fair deal we found. We shopped for a loan, and were in no hurry so we compared 5 companies. Most have stiff penalties if your business takes a downturn and you can’t make the payments. The Swift contract (although still pricey – it’s hard money) takes the designated percentage, and when that percentage of your sales pays them off, that is the end of the contract. Their percentage was the lowest we found. The loan amount they approved was thoughtful and based on our ability to pay (other sources wanted to fund much more, and payments would be more than we could afford). We worked with Jared Pass. Absolutely recommend this company if you have to go after hard money.”
Most Helpful Negative User Review
“Not “swift” and not easy and they required much, too much documentation. I am looking at a pile that is 1- 1/2″ inches thick of the documentation they asked for over a 4 week time frame. I would NOT recommend them to any other company requesting “funding”. Also, the payback rate increased by 10+percent over the 4 week discourse and finally, I quit. End of story. Unless you want an outside entity to know all and I do mean all of your business and unless you have many hours to spend with sending documentation then I do not suggest you even start the process with Swift.”

How We Determined Quality of User Review Websites
- Better Business Bureau is one of the most trustworthy consumer protection watchdogs out there. The site is a great place not only to read reviews, but to file complaints against the company in question.
- Top Ten Reviews starts off with a staff review that evaluates the service on several aspects. At the bottom of the page, commenters can give their own reviews on the service, which affect the overall rating of the service.
- Trustpilot has tons of reviews on the service, however most reviewers were asked by Swift Capital to leave the review. This can positively skew the ratings as a company typically only asks customers who had a positive experience to leave a review.
