iwoca announces integration with Shopify – giving customers a platform to grow their online business

iwoca, the only UK-based provider specialising in funding for online retailers, has launched a new integration with the ecommerce platform Shopify.

  • This latest innovation enables iwoca to instantly assess a seller’s performance and offer straight-forward, affordable finance of £500 – £50,000 to help a business grow.
  • The collaboration with Shopify is yet another example of how iwoca is ‘shaking up’ the business loans sector and ensuring online retailers have the best opportunity to expand their business.
  • Following other recent integrations, businesses using Shopify, FreeAgent, Magento, Linnworks, eBay and Amazon Marketplace can share sales data directly with iwoca to get a quick and easy decision on access to credit.

Christoph Rieche, iwoca CEO and co-founder, said:

“The Shopify platform hosts over 50,000 online retailers so this new integration with iwoca’s innovative technology extends the range of online businesses that can now benefit from instant access to funding. Piece by piece we are tearing down the barriers created by traditional lenders and opening up new avenues of business growth for online retailers.”
