What is a Revolving Credit Agreement?
Not all loans require stacks of paperwork. A Revolving Credit Agreement is pretty simple, and is often just between an individual seller or store and a customer. Maybe the customer makes large purchases regularly. Or maybe the customer owns a small business but their process for getting checks written takes a few days. If you're the seller, you can still benefit from a loan arrangement. You might have just secured a high-spending customer for life. And if they don't pay on time? You can arrange for a late penalty or interest with a revolving line of credit. A revolving credit line can help make buisness a little easier for both buyers and sellers.
When to use a Revolving Credit Agreement:
- You are a Seller and willing to lend money to a buyer (a line of credit) to purchase goods from your business.
- You would like to negotiate the purchase of goods under a line of credit.
