Overall Rating: 9.4 / 10 (Excellent)

Lendio is a well reviewed, small business loan marketplace. The company has a particularly good reputation for customer service, and the ability to explore multiple lenders in order to get their clients the best deal possible. Since Lendio partners with over 75 loan providers, interest rates and fees vary wildly, as well as qualification requirements. Lendio, however, advises prospective borrowers to meet a few basic credit and income conditions in order for them to get the most out of the service.

Lendio is an online marketplace that provides access to most types of small business loan products. Although the company partners with over 75 affiliates, each with different types of loan options, Lendio offers a variety of ranges and terms on its website, in order to give customers an idea of what they will be getting for given loan types.

Lendio Rates & Fees

SBA Loans

Min APR
6.5%
Max APR
9.0%

Term Loans

Fees: Lendio advertises term loan rates that range from 6%-30%. Actual APR, however, will depend on the chosen lender's term length and fees.

Lines of Credit

Fees: Lendio advertises line of credit rates that range from 8%-24%. Actual APR, however, will depend on the chosen lender's term length and fees. The higher your credit score the better your rate will be. A traditional line of credit with a rate as low as prime+ can be obtained with a 680+ credit. If your credit is challenged at the moment then a non-traditional loan can give you a good option with higher rates.

Invoice Financing

Min APR
5.0%

Invoice Financing

Fees: Lendio will finance up to 90% of accounts receivable at a factor rate as low as 5%. There also can be an additional cost per invoice fee.

Merchant Cash Advances

Min APR
18.0%
Max APR
40.0%

Equipment Loans

Fees: Lendio advertises equipment financing rates that range from 7.5%-45%. Actual APR, however, will depend on the chosen lender's term length and fees.

Rates & Fees - 9.4 / 10

Lendio offers base interest rate ranges for all of its different types of loans. However, since loan related fees vary from lender to lender, it is impossible to calculate APR ranges with any real accuracy. Lendio itself does not charge the customer any additional fees, but generates its revenue from partners.

Prospective borrowers do not have to meet any qualifications to use Lendio's portal. However, since all of the company's partners have their own personal set of qualifications, Lendio recommends you have a credit score of at least 550, 6 months in operation, and a minimum of $10,000 in revenue a month. Lendio claims that 70% of its applicants ultimately qualify.

Be wary of this company. They are loan aggregators, not lenders - they spam broadcast your credit file to 75+ lenders, many of whom conduct hard pulls on your personal credit without your knowledge (happened to me, I had 4 hard pulls from 4 lenders in as many days, without any notice - had it not been for Experian alerting me directly, I never would have known). Dropped my personal credit 19 points in a week; of course, Lendio claims they know nothing about it - because they only take your information and send it to others, they are not actual lenders. So why do you need Lendio in the first place? Great question. As soon as you apply, you will be placed in a text-messaging... Read More
