Clear business funding for your opticians

Our Optician business loan is the ideal funding solution for your opticians business. In a nutshell, the loan is an advance of cash that is based on your monthly credit and debit card sales. It is called a merchant cash advance, and unlike traditional business loans, there is no APR. It’s unsecured, and repayments are only made when you make a sale through your card machine. This finance product has proved to be a very flexible funding solution for many opticians throughout the UK.

A vision of growth for your optometrist business

As an optician, you know a little something about sight. But seeing into the future of your business is an entirely different story. According to the Association of Optometrists, the UK has over 14,000 optometrists and more than 6000 dispensing opticians. With these figures in your sights, it's more important than ever before to ring-fence your customers and be the number one business on the high street. Our funding can help you achieve this and help you grow and sustain your practice, helping you to establish a long-term, loyal customer base.

How does it work?

Let's say, for example, your business has a turnover of £20,000 per month through your credit card merchant machine. These are the sales where a customer pays you with their debit or credit card. You, therefore, could qualify for a business cash advance of £20,000.

The borrowing is repaid in a unique way. Each time you make a sale and the customer pays by credit card, a small percentage of that sale is automatically repaid to the lender. This process is repeated daily until the advance is paid off.

You will know the cost of the advance upfront, this will not change, and there are no hidden costs and no surprises at the end of the month.

The funding can be used to invest in the latest Ophthalmology equipment such as Retinal Imaging/Digital Retinal Cameras, Diagnostic Imaging Equipment, Ophthalmic Cameras, Ultrasound, Refractor Keratometers and other technology. Maybe you need to renovate your premises and refurbish, expand by extending or even buying other premises. Or invest in new staff, online marketing such as an e-commerce website and more. In fact, this type of business funding can be used for any business purpose within your opticians business - even if you just need some extra help with cashflow or bills.

The application process is online and only takes minutes to complete; from there, you can see if you are eligible. If you are interested in expanding your opticians, then look no further, pun intended!

Business Loans for Opticians - Optical retail sales assistant in small opticians

We've helped many opticians with the funding they need for:

  • Cover short term cashflow problems
  • Invest in the latest ophthalmic equipment and instruments
  • Renovate, refurbish or expand your business
  • Hire or train new staff including receptionists, retail sales assistants, optical assistants/dispensers
  • Stocking up on frames and other eye care accessories
  • New outdoor or external signage
  • Expanding your services, for example, offering audiology to your customers
  • Emergency repair work and maintenance
  • New website with online booking system for eye tests

Don't worry if you or your opticians business has a bad credit score.  A cash advance is a loan product that is still accessible to you.

No, unlike a bank loan, you don't need a business plan to qualify for a merchant cash advance for you optical business.

Firstly, the application only takes a minute to get a quote. From there, you will need to provide the lender with three months card statements (so have these to hand). If they receive what they need on the same day to make a decision, you can receive funds in your account in as little as 24 hours*. In general, however, it's realistic to allow 2-3 days.

Literally, any business purpose. From refurbishments, new ophthalmic equipment, marketing, more staff, bills, eyewear stock or just straightforward cash flow purposes.

You can sometimes find that buying ophthalmic equipment gives you the freedom to negotiate a better price with your suppliers. Leasing may cost you more in the long term. You may also be looking at second-hand equipment where a cash purchase may be favourable.

With having cash to hand, you can buy eyewear from the wholesalers and lab suppliers, including spectacles and sunglasses and other optical surfaces. Pay your lab suppliers and more.
