Fintech company Square is boosting its small-business lending with an eBay partnership announced Tuesday morning.
Square Capital, the lending arm of the payment start-up, will be available to eBay sellers looking to expand their business operations. Starting in the third quarter, merchants on the site can apply for a loan as small as $500 and up to $100,000 to help with everything from payroll and inventory to equipment and marketing, the companies said in a press release.
