Presenting Capital offerings

When presenting a Capital offering to your users, include the following information:

  • Capital proposal: clearly show the Capital proposal, including all the fields that Adyen provides to you through our GET /grantOffers endpoint.
  • Repayment period: specify that:
    • For a business loan, the repayment period has a maximum term. This means that the repayment period is fixed and the business loan must be completely repaid before the period ends.
    • For a cash advance, the repayment period has an expected term. This means that the repayment period for a cash advance is flexible.
  • How to request a Capital offering: enable users to request Capital on your interface. Clearly show that they must request the product before receiving any Capital proposal.

    • The total repayment amount
