Square offering alternative to traditional bank lending

Mobile card payment service, Square, has announced its expansion into alternative bank lending. The Square Capital program aims to give businesses that are using a Square platform to obtain a cash advance for growth purposes. Square offers this without requiring an application process, delay in turnaround or fees. To use it, Square customers sell a specific amount of their anticipated future card sales to Square, in return for a lump sum payment that the business can receive within one day. Businesses automatically pay Square based on daily card sales, and there is no set time frame for repayment.
