Capital on Tap increases support for UK SMEs’ growth through range of co-branded Mastercard partnerships

Capital on Tap’s co-branded Mastercard program focuses on reinventing the provision of trade credit to better support the growth of UK SMEs through additional cashflow usable at millions of retailers worldwide.

Over the last five years, the entire team at Capital on Tap has worked tirelessly on providing SMEs across the UK with pain-free access to better business banking and extra cashflow. A recent addition to our range of products and services, the Co-branded Mastercard program has been designed for businesses across all industries after several years of research and first-hand experience in the world of Trade Credit.

CEO David Luck explains, “We have already deployed funding facilities of over £340 million to SMEs via our Capital on Tap Business Mastercard, and decided to offer our expertise to bigger businesses as we believe we have the tools to fully reinvent trade credit”.

Having developed a direct understanding of what financial help UK SMEs are actually looking for, Capital on Tap is now offering medium and large businesses the opportunity to utilise the FinTech expertise directly responsible for the success of the Capital on Tap Business Mastercard. David continues, “Our technology underwrites each application as soon as they are submitted, with 80% of applicants receiving a credit decision with 1 minute. Once the customer accepts the offer, the Mastercard is sent in the post and received within 4 days”.

Customers holding the co-branded Mastercard can spend their available credit with the co-branded partner (in-store, online or over the phone) and at millions of retailers worldwide. They also get the same benefits as every Capital on Tap Business Mastercard holders, such as 0% interest for up to 37 days when the account is paid in full each month, real-time credit reviews to improve spending limits and flexible repayment options. In addition, co-branded partners can also tailor special promotions and offers directly to cardholders, enabling them to create a hassle-free loyalty program at no extra cost.

Existing partners have also been able to outsource all aspects of credit control and collections while earning additional revenue. Capital on Tap’s Channel Sales Director Brennig Parry explains, “Because there are no integration efforts needed to get the program started, we have seen new partnerships release within as little as a few weeks after a first discussion. Our partners also greatly enjoy the benefits of seeing their brand awareness increase by having their logo and name on thousands of cards across the UK whilst greatly diminishing any risk of bad debt”.
