What types of financing is available?

Consider one of the following options for covering a portion of the costs to open a Postal Connections/iSold It.
  • Online loan. For a turnaround that's faster than a bank, an online business loan could be the way to go. Credit requirements are often more flexible than those of traditional bank loans, too.
  • Credit card. Using a business credit card allows you to spend up to your preapproved limit. This means if extra expenses pop up, you can likely cover them without having to take out another type of financing.
  • Bank loan. If you have stronger credit — typically a score of 670 or higher — a traditional bank loan may get you a more favorable interest rate than a credit card or online loan.
  • SBA loan. Qualifying for an SBA loan is easier than a traditional bank loan, but it typically comes with fees and higher interest rates.
Also check if Postal Connections/iSold It franchise financing is available. You may be able to get some of the costs covered for less than you would with other traditional funding options.
