Frequently Asked Questions
What are some typical uses for the loan?
Common uses of working capital include buying inventory, gaining cost or production efficiency, bulk buying, investing in product development, advertising costs, or building business infrastructure.
Once I submit, how long does it take to process an application?
Once an application is submitted, we average five business days to review and provide a loan decision. As part of our application due diligence process, we may require additional documentation or information to approve your loan. Additional processing time may be required to complete this review.
How do I make payments?
You loan payments are automatically deducted from the first seller account disbursement following your loan payment due date. If the first disbursement following your due date is insufficient to make the full loan payment, we will deduct the remaining balance from the next disbursement. Visit our Help page in Seller Central to learn more.
Can I payoff my loan early, and is there a penalty?
You may payoff your loan balance at any time without a prepayment penalty. Early payment would also result in interest savings, as we prorate interest due based on the remaining balance.
My business is not prequalified. How do I apply for a loan?
Amazon Lending extends loan invitations to prequalified sellers. We evaluate seller accounts daily and extend invitations to sellers who have a proven track record of growing sales and who provide the highest level of customer satisfaction.
