Their fees do not seem to be listed on the Balboa Capital website. Balboa Capital reviews online (on Yelp) report that there are termination fees and substantial late fees.
One advantage is the size of Balboa Capital’s business cash advances. Another advantage is how you will not need collateral in order to get such an advance.
A very big disadvantage is that their fees have no listing on their website. Only you can decide whether this apparent lack of transparency is an issue for you.
So an apparent lack of transparency should be of concern. However, if your company needs to get a cash advance, then Balboa Capital funding could be your solution. The variety of offerings is encouraging. No matter what, always be sure to read any complaints on the BBB website. Although, if they do not apply to your unique situation, then they should not carry as much weight as complaints which do.
And pay attention to any complaints regarding Balboa Capital customer service.
And finally, as with every other lending program, whether online or offline, remember to read the fine print. And do the math. Go over the details with care. And decide if working with Balboa Capital will be good for you and your company. In addition, consider alternative financing options that go beyond lending. So these include building business credit, in order to best decide how to get the money you need to help your business grow.
