For all of you that have been looking to get a merchant cash advance, you can't find a better time.  Cash advance companies took a hit a couple of years ago and were cautious giving out their money.  They never got quite as tight as the banks but were as tight as they have ever been.  That has all changed.  Despite the continued slow economy, the funding companies are handing out money.  I believe they feel they have seen the worst and can anticipate what businesses are at most risk in today's market.  So if you need money for your business, now may be a perfect time for a merchant cash advance.
