Square Capital FAQ

What APRs does Square Capital offer?

The cost of merchant cash advances is typically marketed as a factor rate, not an APR. Block Inc offers merchant cash advance with a factor rate starting from 1.10 to 1.16. The higher the factor rate, the higher the fees. For example, an advance of $20,000 with a factor rate of 1.5 will have a total repayment of $30,000, which includes $10,000 in fees.

However, we ran the numbers and we estimate it has an equivalent APR that ranges from 10% APR up to 16% APR.

Does Square Capital charge prepayment fees?
