We’re thrilled to announce our expanded partnership with Synchrony, one of the nation’s premier consumer financial services companies, to make credit available to Synchrony’s growing base of small businesses. With the new Fundbox implementation, Synchrony’s small business merchants who are interested in applying for a business line of credit can conveniently access the Fundbox service through the Synchrony Business Center.
Now, Synchrony can provide small business merchants with “in-workflow” access to Fundbox credit service at a time when they need it the most.
“At Fundbox, we have built our entire business experience around the needs of our customers, be they SMEs, B2B platforms, Vendors, or services like Synchrony,” said Eyal Shinar, Founder, and CEO of Fundbox. “With the increased availability of business data, advances in machine learning, and the growth of APIs to make integrations easier, Fundbox is bringing risk analysis and on-demand access to capital directly at the point of the B2B transaction. We are consumerizing B2B commerce in a way that no one else has done before at a time when the B2B market needs it the most.”
“Synchrony is constantly looking to provide our small business merchants with new tools and resources. With Fundbox, small businesses can apply for a credit line, which can make a huge difference in helping drive growth,” said Karen Nash Mirkin, senior vice president, Synchrony Connect. “We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Fundbox to help our partners grow.”
