What is PayPal Working Capital?
Designed for businesses with a strong PayPal sales history, PayPal Working Capital is a loan that allows merchants to access funds quickly - to help grow their business.

How does PayPal Working Capital work?
It's easy to gain quick access to funds to help grow your business with PayPal Working Capital. Simply:

  1. Select the amount you'd like to receive for your business. Your maximum loan amount can be up to 18% of your PayPal sales over the past 12 months, up to a maximum of $97,000.
  2. Choose the portion (repayment percentage) of your future PayPal sales that will go towards the repayment of your loan and fixed fee.
  3. Receive the funds straight away into your PayPal account. You can withdraw it to your bank account or spend it online.
  4. Your repayments will be taken from your future sales until your loan plus fixed fee are repaid. You can also make one-off repayments without penalty.
