China-based cross-border payments provider LianLian Global has partnered iwoca, RITMO and YouLend for an integrated ecommerce solution

China-based cross-border payments provider LianLian Global has partnered iwoca, RITMO and YouLend for an integrated ecommerce solution. The partnership aims to expand LianLian’s global integrated ecommerce finance solution and to provide a variety of capital-access products to ecommerce sellers through its platform.

Moreover, the collaboration between these entities establishes LianLian Global as an important integrated ecommerce payments and financing solution provider for online merchants in the US and UK. The global cross-border payment provider is offering its pre-existing customers access to pre-negotiated financing rates and options. According to the official press release, LianLian’s clients can expect a transparent finance structure with a flat fee as low as 2% on the capital provided and up to 20% discount from other high-street prices.

According to a 2021 Small Business Credit Survey in the US, over one-third (37%) of companies applied for financing but 47% of non-applicants who needed loans did not apply. Moreover, iwoca’s SME Expert Index in the UK reveals that managing cash flow was the most common loan purpose for over two in five small businesses (42%) in Q3 2022. This represents a 16% point increase from the same period last year.

The takeaway from these two reports is that there is a demand for financing for many small businesses including ecommerce sellers, as a company’s cash reserves are not always enough to meet its own requirements.
