At some point in your business journey, you will likely find yourself needing more capital. Whether it’s to accelerate growth or to cover a seasonal cash flow shortage, adequate funding can be make-or-break for small business owners. 
In fact, the vast majority (82%) of small businesses close their doors because of poor cash flow management. Another 29% simply run out of cash. 

Luckily, there are plenty of small business lending solutions available to you. Banks, online lenders, and even family and friends can all help you secure the money you need to grow your business. And tapping into external financing shouldn’t be daunting—it’s an opportunity to take your business to the next level. 
To help you navigate small business lending, we outline the various types of loans and share statistics on approval rates and average loan amounts to help you choose the right option for your business. 

💰 Table of Contents

Types of small business loans
There’s no shortage of small business lending options available to you—but they each come with their own advantages and disadvantages, and varying repayment terms. Repayment terms are extremely important to pay attention to. For example, if your business has a long cash flow cycle, short-term business loans with frequent payments could leave you in a cycle of debt payments. 

Business term loan 
A business term loan is a lump sum of cash that small business owners can get from banks, online lenders, or other financial institutions. Companies have a fixed term to repay the lender. Most business term loans (95%) have fixed interest rates. 
These can be short-, medium-, or long-term loans and depending on the lender, the time to receive funding can vary greatly. For example, medium-term business loans take longer to approve through a bank versus an online lender. 
Short-term business loans have a short repayment period (usually between 18 months and 3 years) whereas medium- and long-term business loans have longer repayment periods (up to 10 years). 
💸 Pros: 

Fixed interest rates.
You can build business credit. 
Small businesses can borrow large amounts of money.
Long term payback period available for long-term loans (up to ten years, depending on the lender).
Low eligibility requirements for short-term loans. 

🚧 Cons 

It can take a while to be approved. 
The shorter the term, the higher the interest rate. 
The shorter the term, the more frequent the payments. 
There may be early repayment fees if you pay off the loan earlier than agreed. 

SBA loan
The US Small Business Administration (SBA) is a government-backed loan available through various lenders including banks and credit unions. SBA loans are beloved for their enviable rates and loan terms. 
There’s a lot of variation and options when it comes to SBA loans, and amounts can vary from $75,000 to $5 million, so be sure to check the SBA’s website for the right type of loan for your business. 
💸 Pros: 

Low interest rates.
Small and large sums of money available to lend. 
Broad eligibility requirements: you must be a registered business, operate in the US, have invested your own time/money into the business, and have been unsuccessful at applying for funding elsewhere. 

🚧 Cons 

Long approval process (around 60 to 90 days).
Good credit scores required.
Down payment needed.
Personal guarantee required for SBA lending; you’re liable for the loan if the company is unable to pay. 

There are lots of avenues to investigate if you’re looking for money to start a business. One popular route is a small business loan, such as an SBA microloan, which is a loan of up to $50,000; it’s administered by nonprofit community lenders and can come with favorable interest rates and terms.

Business line of credit
Line of credit is a lump sum payment that small business owners can use for expenses—such as inventory, rent, or new machinery. Unlike business term loans, large banks give companies a line of credit without fixed repayment terms. It’s a short-term loan that can range anywhere from $1,000 to $250,000. 
According to the Small Business Credit Survey from the Federal Reserve Bank, 54% of US small businesses applied for a business loan or line of credit in 2018. 
💸 Pros: 

No early repayment fees.
It’s flexible; access money as and when you need it.
Only pay interest on the amount you use. 
Build business credit. 

🚧 Cons 

Strict eligibility requirements.
Fees can be if you lend more than the agreed amount.
Failing to make repayments can impact your business credit score. 

Equipment financing
Specifically designed to finance equipment, this type of business loan can help you purchase the commercial fridge, tractor, or computer equipment you need. Lenders will rent equipment to you while you pay for it in monthly instalments. Once the amount is paid, your business will own the equipment. 
According to the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, almost 8 in 10 US companies use some form of financing when acquiring new equipment. Banks were the primary lender for 43% of equipment financing deals. 
💸 Pros

Spread the cost of expensive equipment. 
Flexible terms are available from the majority of lenders. 
Build business credit. 

🚧 Cons 

Money can only be spent on equipment the lender agrees to. 
Lenders may require a down payment or minimum credit score to be approved.
You may still be paying monthly repayments on equipment that is no longer used.

Personal loan
A personal loan is a type of financing based on personal credit to help accelerate business growth in a pinch. It’s available from credit unions and banks and typically ranges from $1,000 to $50,000.
💸 Pros

They’re easy to apply for online.
Most lenders offer lower interest rates for personal loans. 
You don’t always need large down payments for a personal loan.
You can be approved for most personal loans within two weeks.

🚧 Cons 

You, personally, need a good credit score to qualify. 
It’s tough to secure large amounts of money. 
You can’t build your business’ credit score. 
Might not be eligible for tax benefits. 
Personal assets—such as your home and car—could be at risk if monthly repayments can’t be made. 

Merchant cash advance
A merchant cash advance (MCA) is a type of funding that allows small businesses to borrow against future earnings. Lenders give companies rapid access to capital. The money is repaid based on a percentage of future daily sales. 
💸 Pros

Extremely fast access to capital (less than 48 hours).
No fixed weekly or monthly installments for repaying the loan. 
Most lenders don’t need collateral to secure the funding. 

🚧 Cons 

It doesn’t build business credit. 
Most lenders have short repayment terms. 
An MCA can impact cash flow because lenders take money from revenue. 
Interest rates for an MCA are higher than other types of small business loans.

Business credit card
A business credit card is a simple way to make your everyday expenditures work for you. Once approved by a bank, you’ll have a revolving credit limit to use for business purchases. Small businesses can use credit cards for short-term cash flow fluctuations. 
💸 Pros

Quick upfront approval process.
Get rewards (cash back, travel points, etc) for your business purchases.
Create individual credit cards for your senior leadership teams to use. 
They’re flexible—once approved, you can choose to take the funding when you need it, and leave it when you don’t.

🚧 Cons 

Interest rates can fluctuate. 
Most lenders have annual fees. 
Smaller credit limit than other types of funding. 
There are security issues if your credit card is skimmed or stolen. 
Many lenders require a personal liability agreement; any late repayments could impact your personal credit score. 

Accounts receivable financing
Accounts receivable financing allows small businesses to borrow against unpaid invoices for working capital. You repay the initial amount to a lender when the invoices are paid, alongside weekly fees that act as interest. 
💸 Pros

Get quick cash for the work you’ve done.
Retain control over the business.
No collateral needed.

🚧 Cons 

Not available on older invoices.
Most lenders only give a percentage of the total unpaid invoice sum (approximately 75-80%).
You can end up paying much more than the invoice amount if the invoices are unpaid or overdue. 

Shopify Capital
For Shopify store owners, Shopify Capital is a funding option that has no application process. It’s used primarily for growth funding and has a fixed 12-month term. Small businesses can loan between $200 and $2 million. The loan is repaid automatically as a percentage of your sales. 
💸 Pros

Repay funding as a percentage of sales. 
You don’t need to give up equity in your business.
Can be used to fund any business expense, including payroll, inventory, and advertising.
No application process—eligible businesses are pre-approved based on their store sales. 

🚧 Cons 

Only available for Shopify merchants.
Not available for those just starting out as it requires a history of store sales.

We weren’t old enough as a business to be approved for a bank loan…that’s when we found out about Shopify Capital. They already had access to all of our business data and they made an educated decision quickly about how much money we qualified for. We received the funds in our bank account a few days later.

Average loan amounts by loan type and lender
The average small business loan amount is $663,000. That’s for all business loans regardless of loan type. Don’t be alarmed if that number sounds big. In the U.S. and Canada, a small business is defined as a company with fewer than 100 employees, so the size of loans can vary significantly by company size—from a few thousand dollars to over 5 million dollars. 
Here’s a breakdown of the different types of business loans available to small businesses and their average lending amounts.

The average short-term business loan amount is around $20,000.
The average medium-term business loan amount is $110,000.
The average SBA loan amount is $107,000.
The average business line of credit loan amount is $22,000. 

Loan sizes also depend on the lender. Here’s a breakdown of the average size loans by lender type. 

The average large bank loan size is $564,000.
The average small bank loan size is $185,000. 
The average alternative lending loan size is $80,000. 

Approval rates by loan type and lender
Before putting in your business loan application, it’s worth understanding which types of small business funding have the highest approval rates. Getting approved for a loan can be tough: 48% of small businesses said their small business lending needs were met. And only 20% of small businesses qualified for the full financing they requested. 

Research shows that merchant cash advances have the highest approval rate of 87%. That’s shortly followed by equipment loans (86%), business lines of credit (79%), and business loans (70%).
Approval rates can also vary depending on the lender they’re coming from. Biz2Credit’s Small Business Lending Index lists the loan approval rates for each type of lender as of May 2021:

Alternative lenders: 24.3% (up from 20.5% in 2020)

Institutional lenders: 23.6% (up from 21.4% in 2020)

Credit unions: 20.4% (up from 20.3% in 2020)

Small banks: 18.7% (up from 16.9% in 2020)

Big banks: 13.5% (up from 11.5% in 2020)

Reasons why business loans are declined
Securing small business funding isn’t always easy, especially from traditional sources like big banks. Lenders can choose to turn down applications for many reasons, but the most common reasons are as follows: 

44% of loan applications are declined because the business already has too much debt. 

26% of loan applications are declined because of low credit scores.

33% of loan applications are declined because of insufficient collateral to secure the debt.

30% of loan applications are declined because the business is too new/insufficient credit history. 

18% of loan applications are declined because of weak business performance. 

When to think about small business lending
Unsure whether you need to finance your small business? Below are some key financial moments that typically require financing.
Startup costs 
Although many ecommerce businesses get started with a shoestring budget, getting a business off the ground can be expensive depending on the industry you’re in and the size of your team. According to Shopify research, the average small business (defined as 4 or less employees) spends $40,000 in their first year. 
If you don’t have that cash on hand or enough revenue from the business to sustain the first year of your small business, you should think about lending options. You could also apply for a personal loan if other applications are denied due to a lack of established business credit—a common issue for early-stage startups. 
To increase your chances of being approved by a traditional lender, write a financial plan, including how much money you will need at various stages and how you plan on allocating any funding you’d receive. Understanding your financial position and the exact funding you might need before you get started can save you lots of headaches (and rejections) down the road. 
Working capital 
Working capital is the cash your small business is able to spend. It’s the difference between your assets/income and your total expenses—including accounts payable, inventory, and payroll costs. 
Securing a small business loan helps to increase your working capital. The more you have in the bank to spare, the better your cash flow. This helps reduce the risk of not being able to pay for expenses (like stock) because you don’t have enough money coming in. 
Seasonal gaps also cause short-term problems with cash flow. If you’re ramping up advertising spend prior to the holiday season, for example, you may not make any revenue until months later. 
Funding options like accounts receivable financing and merchant cash advances are good options here. Not only will they help to improve cash flow in the short term, but they can also make sure you have working capital to cover unexpected bills. 
Purchasing inventory
Managing inventory is one of the most important things about running a small business. You can’t make revenue if you don’t have stock to sell. Financing your small business can help you purchase larger volumes of stock. 
With Shopify Capital, for example, you can lend anywhere from $200 to $2 million. Merchants like Quartz & Rainbows use that funding to purchase inventory, stock up for peak seasons, or explore new products. They repay the loan as a percentage of sales—meaning repayments are flexible to suit your small business. 

Because of Shopify Capital, I’ve been able to grow during the pandemic, I’ve been able to add new products, and I’ve been able to get orders shipped out as quickly as possible. Now I can have bigger goals to work towards.
Zakia Torres, Founder of Quartz & Rainbows 

Purchasing equipment and machinery
Extra cash gives your small business the opportunity to purchase equipment and machinery that’ll help you work faster and more efficiently. Lending options like equipment financing gives you money to spend on tools. As a result, you get time to spend on other areas of the business. 
Hiring staff
When you’re growing a business, there comes a time when you need an extra pair of hands. Whether you’re hiring customer service associates, marketing staff, or someone to fulfil orders, you need cash to pay their salary.
If you reach that point before you have enough working capital to hire, consider small business lending options. An SBA loan has broad eligibility requirements and large sums of money available to borrow over longer terms. Despite its longer application process, it’s a good option to consider if you’re thinking about hiring staff. 
Is small business lending right for you? 
While there are many small business lending options to choose from, that doesn’t mean they’re all available to you. Or right for your business. So, before you apply for a loan, ask yourself the following:

What would I do with the cash infusion?
Can I afford to make the payments every month? 
How quickly can I pay the loan off?
What happens if I can’t pay it off? 
Which lender will best understand my business needs?

Once you’ve assessed each financing option and made your decision, apply with enough time for your application to be approved so you’re not left in a sudden cash flow crisis.
Finally, if the thought of applying for a loan is daunting, rest assured that you’re not alone. Almost every business owner has experienced the anxiety that comes with preparing to expand and grow. But with a bit of research and some financial planning, extra capital can be exactly what you need to take your business to the next level.

26 Best T-Shirt Mockups PSD Templates For Your Online Store

Are you on a tight budget, but still have that entrepreneurial fire inside you? Starting an online t-shirt business just might be the idea you’ve been waiting for. Especially since you can use realistic t-shirt mockup templates to get going fast.
Whether you’re designing your own t-shirt or looking to add some better products to your online store, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’re going to look at 26 top-notch t-shirt mockups and PSD templates.
Let’s dig in.

What Is a Mockup Shirt?
A mockup shirt is essentially a blank t-shirt that you can add your product design on. 
T-shirt mockups are typically available in two colors: black t-shirt mockup and white t-shirt mockup. Theycan include a model wearing the product to help customers envision what the t-shirt looks like, or they may just feature the t-shirt on a plain background. 
People who create their own mockups have basic knowledge of apparel design and experience using photo editing software. But you can design your own shirts even if you don’t have such skills by using t-shirt mockup templates available online.
What Is a T-Shirt Mockup PSD?
T-shirt mockup PSD is a blank t-shirt mockup that you can edit in Adobe Photoshop. . “PSD” is essentially the name of a Photoshop image file. You can think of .psd in the same way you think of a .jpg or .png extension for images. Keep in mind that you’ll need Photoshop on your computer if you want to open and edit a PSD file. 
If you’re interested in learning some design skills so you can tweak Photoshop t-shirt templates on your own, check out this Photoshop tutorial for beginners.

Pro tip: You can use the “smart layers” feature in Photoshop to easily and quickly replace the graphics on your shirt. You can also use editing tools to manipulate the labels, buttons, color, and other elements of the t-shirt. 
Why You Should Use T-Shirt Mockups
A t-shirt mockup lets your customers see your design in action. 
Some t-shirt design mockups feature models, which lets you showcase what your product looks like on an actual person. This visualization can be a big help when your customer is making a decision to buy. 
If you run a print on demand business (which is a dropshipping business where you design your own products), you might use a t-shirt mockup to showcase your unique design on a t-shirt without having to shell out extra money to hire a model. 
How to Place a Custom Design On a Mockup?
You have three ways to create a t-shirt template:

Downloading a PSD t-shirt mockup template 
Designing from scratch in Photoshop
Using an online t-shirt mockup tool

Since the third option is the easiest, we’re going to focus on that and share some t-shirt mockup generators you can use to create your first design.

Samaritan's Feet Announces Purchase of Worldwide Headquarters Building With Plans to Launch Interactive Shoezeum Experience in Charlotte, NC

CHARLOTTE, N.C.,
July 19, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

Humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Feet announces the purchase of their new worldwide headquarters, located at 4808 Chesapeake Dr., Charlotte, NC, 28216. The 74,135 square feet of office, warehouse, and volunteer engagement space sits on 15.86 acres of land on the Westside Opportunity Zone of Charlotte. Samaritan’s Feet closed on this property on June 30, 2021, for approximately $6.44 million.
Construction has begun to prepare the worldwide headquarters to contain the following in Phase I: main offices for staff based in the U.S., increased warehouse space to process and ship shoes globally, expanded volunteer engagement center, rentable meeting and event spaces, and the Samaritan’s Feet interactive ShoeZeum presented by Sanford Health (an educational immersive experience available to the general public). Future plans for the headquarters include: The Samaritan Leadership Institute, an innovation and business incubator space, and additional co-working and rentable event areas.
“The monumental growth of Samaritan’s Feet over the last several years is showcased by the purchase of our new headquarters facility. This is an important step in the next phase of the organization. The expansion allows us to work more efficiently towards our vision and amplify our commitment to creating a world with zero shoeless people, while further activating an ethos of corporate and community service in the city to help our constituents serve in a greater capacity. We are thrilled to bring this exciting new facility to the community of Charlotte, our home-base where the organization began 18 years ago,” said Manny Ohonme, President, CEO, and Co-Founder, Samaritan’s Feet.
The additional space in the new headquarters allows the organization to project a 60% increase in shoes distributed over the next five years, just in the United States alone, and ship over 1 million shoes worldwide annually. This increased impact also allows the organization to expand staff. To date, Samaritan’s Feet has served over 8.3 million people across 108 countries, 450 U.S. cities, and 43 U.S. states.
The organization was able to purchase this building through a $5 million lead gift from Sanford Health based in Sioux Falls, SD, with matching gifts from other local and national partners through an ongoing capital campaign that outlines three main strategies to scale the global impact of the organization: increase operational capacity in the U.S., maximize efficiency in global delivery, and expand experiential education.
“It’s hard to believe just 18 years ago we were operating out of our garage in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte. We’re excited to see how this new facility leads to greater impact, because that represents more needs met worldwide,” said Tracie Ohonme, Executive Vice President and Co-Founder, Samaritan’s Feet.
The anticipated ribbon cutting for this new building is Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021, with Phase 1 projects completed.

Female Founder Liz Kirby Aims to Normalize the CBD Lifestyle

PORTLAND, Maine,
July 19, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

Liz Kirby, female founder of Betoken CBD, a wellness brand on a mission to make adulting easier, just added a new purpose to her passion. That purpose is not only to add value to the lives of her customers by providing easily accessible all-natural supplements and body care products that soothe and calm the mind, body, and soul but also to normalize incorporating the use of CBD-based products into a healthy lifestyle.

The first, and most crucial, step to normalizing CBD is to educate people on what CBD actually is – and most importantly, what CBD isn’t. There’s a false narrative within the wellness industry and beyond that CBD and THC, the controversial chemical responsible for inducing psychological effects in its consumer, are one and the same.

Therefore, the use of CBD can, by default, carry a negative stigma simply based on this false assumption. Liz aims to educate consumers and provide them accurate information by way of Betoken’s interactive website, dynamic social media presence, taking on entrepreneurial leadership roles, and opening a brick-and-mortar store where people can go to get real-life insights on how incorporating CBD into their daily routine can have a meaningful and positive effect on the quality of their lives.

“I saw a need to introduce CBD as an all-natural alternative to more mainstream remedies for everyday ailments, rather than being seen as a diluted version of THC,” Liz explains as the motivating factor for bringing Betoken CBD to life.

“My goal was to bridge the gap between what was being said about CBD versus what was actually true about CBD,” Liz continues, and to this point, Betoken offers an array of all-natural supplements and body care products that provide relief for consumers.

Visit Betoken CBD in real-life at the Black Box, located at 93 Washington Ave, Unit 4, in Portland, Maine or visit betokencbd.com for their array of all-natural CBD supplements and body care products. Stay in-the-know and read the latest Betoken CBD in the press in BuzzFeed.

ABOUT BETOKEN CBD

Betoken is the only CBD company designed exclusively for grown-ups. What was once a routine morning 5k is now the source of chronic knee pain. Where falling asleep was once a matter of head hitting pillow, it’s now a tossing and turning fiasco. Products are formulated to help people sleep, chill, and feel better.

ABOUT LIZ KIRBY

Liz and her husband have two young kids and live in southern Maine. Liz practiced law for three years before she “retired” in 2013 to embark on a series of more creative endeavors. She has been a CBD entrepreneur since 2018.

Dynamic Solutions HK Limited Set to Trial Wireless Electric Car Charging

HONG KONG,
July 19, 2021 (Newswire.com) –

Technology start-up Dynamic Solutions HK Limited has revealed it will begin trialling wireless charging devices that will charge electronic vehicles as they are parked. The innovative induction pads will be installed at the firms’ test center, with in-depth trials expected to start early next month.

David Zhongyi, who heads up the Investor Relations department at Dynamic Solutions HK Limited, said, “Our wireless electric vehicle charging pads will eliminate the need for large, unsightly charging points which are beginning to clutter our cities. The pads will be built into the ground, and they will pump out alternating ultrasonic waves that convert into electricity when the car is parked above.”

Once the trials begin, Dynamic Solution HK Limited engineers will test the technology in various situations for speed, accuracy, and robustness through differing weather conditions. They will also test how easily the technology can be built into older electronic vehicles. 

“Electric Vehicle manufacturers are now incorporating induction charging technology with their new models; however, there is only a small number of induction-enabled electric vehicle charge points installed throughout Hong Kong at the moment. We are aiming to help change that here and throughout Asia,” David Zhongyi continued.

Establishing more charging outlets has become a major requirement in recent years as the climate emergency continues to pressure local authorities. Despite this, the current infrastructure has been unable to meet the high demand for electric cars.

The limited supply of curbside charging stations for electric vehicles is causing rising concern. Residents say that the ones that have been installed are cluttering the streets and footpaths. They are also subject to vandalism and damage. All of these are issues that Dynamic Solutions HK Limited’s underground wireless charging pads do not have.

AboutSince Dynamic Solutions HK Limited was created in 2012, the company has been investing in research and development that is paving the way for future technology and how we charge electronics. Our technology has been developed to use ultrasonic waves to charge electronic devices.
