Banana Exchange's MCA Programs

Banana Exchange brings value and business expertise to the MCA industry by offering MCA funders a strategic partnership driven by access to long term funding. Our funding program is based solely on the MCA funders’ receivables (RTR). No financials or personal guarantees required.

How It Works

You provide Banana Exchange with a list of deals whose RTR Banana Exchange will factor.

We evaluate the list and connect to your ACH provider to ensure the deals are collecting.

We approve some or all of the RTR (see Eligible RTR below)

The RTR we factor continues to collect directly into your bank account as before. So, if it gets too low or has too many defaults, you will need to provide us with new RTR in its place

We advance 25% of the Eligible RTR amount, as a factoring transaction (not as a loan). For larger clients the advance can be higher.

Funding Programs

1. PRINCIPLE + FEE

Equal monthly repayment over 12 month.

  • Example:
  • You own $4M of Eligible RTR – Banana advances $1M (25%)
  • Fee is 15% – $150K
  • Total to settle is $1M + $150K paid monthly, $95,833 a month, over a 12 month period
  • During the 12 months, the ratio between your balance and Eligible RTR can’t rise above 50%

2. FEE-ONLY

Fee is paid in equal monthly payment over 12 months.
Principal is paid in equal monthly payments over the last 3 months.

  • Example:
  • You own $4M of Eligible RTR – Banana advances $1M (25%)
  • Fee is 22% – $220K
  • Total fee to settle is $18,333 a month over a 12 month period
  • The advance amount is settled after 9 months in 3 equal monthly installments of $333,333
  • During the 12 months, the ratio between your balance and Eligible RTR can’t rise above 50%

High flexibility

Once onboarded, you can draw funds up to twice a month, depending on your cash flow needs. You never hold unneeded excess cash. You can always draw more funds as needed.

Enabling a positive growth cycle for your business.

Banana Exchange grows with you. As you generate more RTR, Banana will provide you with an increasing amount of funds.

Prerequisites for Funding

  • You are a direct MCA funder and own some RTR originated from merchant cash advance deals funded with your own capital
  • You collect your RTR mostly via ACH transactions (daily or weekly)
  • You have no UCC-1 filings on your RTR assets
Under certain circumstances, we may be able to work with MCAs that don’t adhere to one or more of these prerequisites – contact us for more information.

Eligible Receivables (RTR)

Banana Exchange re-factors your RTR according to these criteria:

  • 01.

    The RTR must be backed by proper documentation – i.e., merchant cash advance application and contract.

  • 02.

    The RTR must exhibit relatively consistent ACH daily or weekly payments. Defaulted deals, deals that are collected outside the ACH, or deals that have many incompletes ACH transactions are not eligible.

  • 03.

    The RTR batch must not be too concentrated in a certain state or industry. If over 25% of your batch consists of deals from merchants in a certain state or industry, Banana may only accept a certain subset of those deals.

  • 04.

    If the current balance of an eligible deal is over $70K, Banana will factor it, but only recognize the first $70K. So, if you have 10 deals, each with a current balance of $100K, Banana will recognize them as $700K, meaning you will be eligible for $175K in funding (25%).

  • 05.

    If several eligible deals are with the same merchant or same owner, they will all be placed under the same $70K umbrella.
