Amazon and Goldman Sachs launch new products to help SMEs
E-commerce giant and technology giant Amazon has tied up with Goldman Sachs, one of the world’s largest investment banks. As part of the partnership, a digital credit line will be launched for small and medium-sized businesses.
Here’s how it works: Amazon merchants can get loans of up to $ 1 million from digital bank Marcus (Goldman Sachs) with an annual interest rate of 6.99% to 20.99%. Obtaining and repaying such a loan will be as easy as a credit card. Filing an application is online, takes just a few minutes, and confirmation is usually done in real-time. If users do not pay the minimum on time, they will be overdue. In addition, if merchants do not use at least 30% of their credit line, a service fee will be added.
According to experts, the deal with Amazon is profitable, firstly, for Goldman Sachs, as the company will have access to thousands of Amazon sellers. Initially, the internet retailer planned to create an online platform, where banks would compete for lending to small and medium-sized businesses. However, Amazon abandoned this strategy in favor of working exclusively with Goldman.
