A merchant cash advance is the way to go for immediate, short-term financial needs. The payoff process will depend on how much you will be making during the course of the loan term. Your chance of getting approved won’t rely on your credit score unlike with a working capital loan–where you will also end up paying more the longer your payoff term is. A working capital loan can be a better option if you have a good credit score, and at least a medium scale income that can enable you to pay off your loan in a shorter amount of time.
