FAQS About Revenue Based Financing


What does Velocity offer?

Velocity facilitates revenue based financing in India for e-commerce businesses against a fixed fee of 5-8%. Unlike traditional financing options like VCs and Banks, our capital comes without any equity dilution, collateral or personal guarantees. Repayments are made as a percentage of revenues, and you can raise anywhere between Rs. 5 lakhs to 3 crores depending upon your business's performance and requirements.

Here is an example on how revenue based financing works. Let's assume Company A raises Rs 40 Lakhs from Velocity at a 6% fixed fee and 10% revenue share. In this case Company A would keep sharing 10% of its future revenue with Velocity till it pays back a total of Rs 42.4 lakhs (Rs. 40 lakhs + 6%*40 lakhs).

It's that simple! No other interest component, no processing fee. Nothing else. To know more, check out our comprehensive guide on revenue based financing that covers everything related to the topic.

Fund access and disbursal related

After approval how can I access the funds? How will the funds be deployed?

Any funding that you need to access will be deployed via Velocity’s NBFC partners. While all your interactions will be with Velocity, a formal loan agreement will be signed between you and the NBFC.

You can easily access funds via the Velocity dashboard which provides easy options to add vendors, upload invoices and create payouts. It is a seamless netbanking alike interface. Within 24 hours payouts are transferred to your vendor’s account and you can verify the same on the dashboard.

Further, you can also use the dashboard to look at historical payouts and the repayment history.

Payback related

How is the repayment made?

Being founders ourselves, we know that revenues can fluctuate from month to month. One of the key reasons companies avoid debt is due to the fixed EMI obligation it creates irrespective of cash flows. To address this conundrum, we tie repayments to revenues.

Repayments are routed to Velocity directly via payment gateway splits, virtual accounts or NACH transactions. The entire process is extremely transparent and computations can be viewed in real time on the Velocity dashboard.
