Fundbox Business Loans Review

Fundbox provides one simple business loan funding product which looks to solve small businesses working capital needs. Fundbox offers lines of credit of up to $150,000 for 12 or 24-week periods, with weekly repayments required. You don’t need a good credit score to be eligible, and funding can be available the next day. It is important to note that the lines of credit provided are not cheap with high APRs, so ensure that you can afford your weekly repayments before proceeding.

Fundbox Business Loans Terms & Requirements

Fundbox only offers one product, its business line of credit. Terms of the line of credit are:

  • Line of credit of between $1,000 and $150,000
  • Repayment period of 12 or 24 weeks
  • 12 weeks line of credit begins at 4.66%
  • 24 weeks line of credit starts at 8.99%

In certain circumstances, these conditions are fair but ensure that your business can afford the weekly repayments. The APRs offered are expensive, and if you miss payments, they will quickly compound into large amounts.

To be considered for a line of credit from Fundbox, you will need to meet the following criteria:

  • Business must have six months of trading history, of which 3 months are in a business checking account
  • Annual revenue of greater than $100,000
  • A personal credit score of over 600

How to Apply

Much of Fundbox’s appeal is its claims of business funding in minutes. We put this to the test by trying out the application process for ourselves to see if it is really as easy as it claims to be. We visited the Fundbox homepage to start the process.

We were then asked to enter details about ourselves and our business, including SSN, personal address, business address, legal business name, industry, and business entity.

The final stage was to add our company financials by connecting our accounting software. We were worried that this stage might be complicated, but the process was swift. After connecting to our accounting software, we submitted our application and received approval within five minutes.

Overall, the application with Fundbox went as smoothly as advertised, and we would recommend that anyone looking for very short-term business funding consider Fundbox.

Qualification Requirements

To be considered for a line of credit from Fundbox, your business will need to meet the following list of requirements:

  • Be operating for at least six months
  • Have over $100,000 in annual revenue
  • Have a personal credit score of greater than 600
  • Have a business checking account with at least 3 months of trading history
  • US citizen or permanent resident

Required Information

During the application process for a line of credit, you will need to provide the following information:

  • Proof of ID
  • Proof of address
  • Proof of business ownership
  • Three months of checking account statements
  • Up-to-date financial statements
  • Link to your accounting software

Application Steps & Time Frames

Applying for a line of credit with Fundbox was one of the most straightforward business loan transactions we have experienced. The whole application process was completed in less than ten minutes, including uploading our documents and linking our accounting software. We then received approval for our application within minutes. Finally, funding was received in our bank account the following day. The whole process could not have been quicker or easier.

Do I need an excellent personal credit score to get a Fundbox business line of credit?

You will need a personal credit check to receive business funding from Fundbox. However, you do not need a good credit score, with Fundbox considering people with scores of 600 or above.

What is a revolving line of credit?

A revolving line of credit operates similarly to a credit card. As you repay drawn-down amounts, you replenish your credit and can draw down again.

Can I apply with a soft credit check?

You can prequalify with a soft credit check. However, on the formal application, you will need to submit to a hard credit check being performed.

Customer Support

Fundbox has a highly-rated customer support team you can reach via phone, email, or social media. The company also has a comprehensive Help Center with tons of answers to the most common business loan questions.

We wanted to test whether Fundbox’s customer support was as good as it claims to be, so we called up the helpline. The call was answered immediately, which is always a good sign, and the customer support agent was helpful, polite, and knowledgeable about Fundbox’s products and offerings. Our experience with customer support was good, which is supported by most online reviews of the company.

Privacy & Security

As per the company’s privacy policy, it collects the information you give them to provide you with a better service. Fundbox is not at liberty to disclose your information to anyone except for the purposes of:

  • Complying with any applicable regulations at the government’s request.
  • Enforcing its terms of use, including through an investigation into your information.
  • Detecting or preventing fraud or security issues.
  • Protecting you, the public, or the company against harm.

Fundbox is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and was awarded a superb A+ rating. There is currently no reason to believe that Fundbox represents a security threat to any individual or institution.

In Conclusion

Ultimately, if you are looking for quick, short-term funding, then Fundbox offers a simple service that could see you with funds within 24 hours. However, it’s important to note that the APRs charged can be very expensive due to the short-term nature of the loans. Plus, the maximum loan term available is 24 weeks. Therefore, you should ensure that you can afford the weekly repayments if you proceed with a line of credit from Fundbox.
