What are the different kinds of financing options available? What are the differences between term loan and overdraft?
Term Loan: A term loan is a fixed loan that is repaid in regular payments over a set period of time.The entire loan amount is disbursed in one go. Interest rate is charged on the loan amount disbursed. Loan is to be repaid in monthly installments as set by the lender.
Overdarft: In case of OD (overdraft) facility, an upper limit is set for the loan. The borrower can withdraw as and when there is capital requirement in a set period of time. Interest rate is charged on the borrowed amount and not on the OD limit set. Interest is charged only till the day of repayment. The entire amount borrowed is to be paid in lump sum within the period re-defined with the lender.
How much and how long can I borrow?
Offers from our lending partners range from Rs 1 Lac – Rs 3 crore, for duration between 1 – 12 months.
How much is the interest rate?
Different lenders offer loans under different interest rate range. It can range from 12-24%.
Do I need to pledge property or machinery to get a loan?
No. If you take loan through Paytm platform, loan is collateral free. If you take a loan from our partner lenders, since there will be no collateral, your payout will work as a security and will route through a virtual escrow account. This account is opened when both lender and seller agree to it. Once loan is repaid, this virtual account is disabled and payout again starts to get deposited in seller’s current account.
What will be the process of paying back a loan?
Process of paying back depends on lender as well as type of loan. Term loans have fixed repayment cycles (usually monthly) while in a case of overdraft one can borrow upto limit and pays back within 60 days (may vary as per lender) of borrowing. So, If your OD limit is 1 crore and you withdraw 90 lacs you will have to pay back 90 lac + 2 month interest if you pay back after 2 months. If you payback after 10 days, you pay only 10 days interest.
How long can I repay in?
All loans offered here are short-term loans and have to be settled within the period for which sanction is done.
