The Ecommerce industry is quite unique when it comes to commercial financing needs. A line of credit can be approved for an ecommerce website, seller or supplier. 

Back in the day, web properties and online sellers were seen as the outliers by banks. They were not financed by banks, but now it's a huge bank borrowing industry. It used to be the case that traditional banks wouldn’t finance an ecommerce business because the bank wanted to see a brick and mortar storefront. Times have definitely changed!

What’s the number one reason that ecommerce owners look to activate a line of credit? Being able to have inventory in stock is the main reason. Having the right amount of buying power and knowing when to use it is the ecommerce strategy. Some online sellers can get cost savings if they order in bulk, so a lot of ebay or Amazon sellers use a line of credit to increase their orders from wholesalers or factories. This cost discount means larger margins for the online store and can even pay for the line of credit charge.

These days, it’s reasonable to assume that customers don’t want to wait long for their purchase online. So having stock readily available is second to none. By the year 2040, it’s estimated that 95% of all purchases will be through eCommerce. This means that ecommerce businesses will depend more and more on financing to help them buy goods before they sell them and recoup the investment. 

How would you use a line of credit as an ecommerce seller? Besides buying inventory, the other half of this is actually driving sales for your products. Marketing to drive more traffic and increase the conversion rate on your website or Amazon store is a fantastic way to increase your return on investment of the line of credit. Our online sellers use borrowed funds from banks to advertise correctly, so that they still make good margins. The increased traffic also has everlasting value, from trackable statistics sellers can quantify what marketing/advertising works the best.

Are you looking for a line of credit for your ecommerce business? There simply is no better way to go about finding the right bank than applying with Line of Credit Depot. Business owners can apply here, for a no credit check application.
