StyleSeat has partnered with Stripe to offer eligible businesses access to fast, flexible financing through the Stripe Capital program.
StyleSeat businesses are automatically reviewed for eligibility on a daily basis, and you will be contacted via email if your business qualifies for an offer. The criteria for eligibility is based on a number of factors including your transaction volume and history with StyleSeat.
Eligible U.S. businesses will receive an email if they have an offer available.
If eligible, you’ll receive an email with your personalized offers and you can choose the one that works best for your business. Each offer will outline:
the financing amount: the dollar amount that will be deposited into your bank account
the flat fee: the fee you'll pay over time in exchange for the financing amount -- there are no other fees and or compounding interest
the total amount owed: the sum of the financing amount and the flat fee
the repayment rate: the percentage of your daily card transactions processed through StyleSeat that will be withheld to repay the total amount owed.
Here’s an example offer you may receive:
financing amount: $17,000
flat fee: $1,700
total amount owed: $18,700
repayment rate: 12%
If you accepted the example offer above, you would receive $17,000 in the bank account associated with your StyleSeat account within 1-2 days along with your usual payout. Stripe would then withhold 12% of your daily transaction total in addition to the usual processing fees until you've paid down the total amount owed of $18,700 (the $17,000 advanced plus the $1,700 flat fee).
You’ll automatically repay the financing over time through a percentage of your transactions according to your repayment rate. The repayment process will begin automatically 1-2 business days after the funds have been deposited into your account. The more card sales you process through StyleSeat Payments, the faster you'll repay. There is no deadline to repay the financing and there is no accrued interest or late fees.
If you would prefer to repay faster or repay the entire outstanding balance, you can arrange to make a manual payment in addition to the withheld amounts by clicking the ‘Make Payment’ button in your loan overview page. There are no additional fees for early repayment.
Note that repaying early does not guarantee subsequent financing offers. Accounts are automatically reviewed for additional offers on a daily basis and we will reach out to you via email if you qualify for any additional offers.
You are expected to repay a minimum amount every 60 days such that the maximum duration of the loan does not exceed 18 months. If the total payments deducted from your sales cover the minimum payment requirement for the 60-day period, then you will continue to pay back your loan through a percentage of your transactions.
However, if payments deducted from your sales over that period happen to fall below the minimum payment requirement, you will be required to pay the remaining amount. Stripe will automatically debit your bank account the balance needed to meet your minimum payment. You can view your minimum payment amount in the Dashboard or in your loan agreement.
