Walmart teams up with Goldman Sachs to offer online sellers business credit lines

Walmart (WMT) is getting into business lending — with some help from Goldman Sachs (GS).

Beginning on Tuesday, small and medium-sized businesses that sell on the retail giant’s Marketplace will see invites to apply for business lines of credit offered by Marcus, Goldman’s online consumer banking unit. It’s part of a new partnership between the big-box retailer and the Wall Street giant.

“Access to affordable capital is more important than ever as businesses large and small world to adapt and evolve to serve customers and grow their businesses,” Jeff Clementz, vice president of Walmart Marketplace, said in a blog post.

Initially, sellers can access lines of credit between $10,000 and up to $75,000. A source familiar with the matter told Yahoo Finance that, over time, Marcus hopes to

Business development has never been easy, and when the pandemic hit, it became even more challenging. But credit unions have adapted by spotting new consumer trends and finding creative ways to keep their business development pipelines open. What’s more, because members are flocking to digital banking, credit unions have been leveraging technology solutions to grow their business development ­opportunities.

Brown

Ted Brown, cofounder of Digital Onboarding Inc. in Boston, said credit unions are essentially sitting on a business development gold mine among their current members, but are not necessarily equipped in the digital age to tap into it. He noted when branch lobbies were closed at the onset of the pandemic, everyone began moving to digital banking, and now that trend seems to be in hyper drive.

“We provide that platform to digitally engage members, providing good recommendations to those members about products and services that the credit

X1 Visa Credit Card Uses Income, Not Credit Score to Determine Your Spending Limit

The new X1 Visa Card, created by former Twitter execs with backing from PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, is planned for release this winter, and the company opened its waiting list this week. I signed up (there are about 23,000 people ahead of me). You might want to as well, because it sounds like the X1 card will be unlike any credit card you’ve seen before. And it could be especially useful for entrepreneurs.

What’s different about the X1?

1. It doesn’t use credit scores to determine your credit limit.

“The consumer credit card industry has been almost untouched by tech and has relied on the archaic credit score system,” co-founder and former Twitter exec Deepak Rao told TechCrunch.
