For Release on MPR – The Merchant Processing Resource (MPR) is now accepting requests to be included in our exclusive Merchant Cash Advance (MCA) directory. Over the past year, MPR has validated and published the contact information for the thirty two largest direct providers of MCA. Given that many resellers are now doubling as co-participants in funding, it makes sense to reward them and others with recognition.
Direct providers of MCA will continue to be acknowledged in the existing directory. An entirely separate listing page for Verified MCA Service Providers will include resellers, co-funders, networking services, credit card processors, lockbox banks, law firms, and even boutique direct funding companies. To maintain the integrity of our database, we have created a specific set of guidelines that must be met for inclusion.
MPR offers value that consumers can’t get from a phone book. We’ve discovered in our research* that consumers are performing their own online background checks before engaging in a relationship with an MCA Service Provider. We’re also aware that there are now several thousand websites advertising the MCA product. It’s more confusing than ever to know where to go and who to trust. That’s why you should trust us to narrow down the choices. Unlike the Better Business Bureau, companies in our directories do not pay to be listed. That frees us from a glaring conflict of interest that many other reviewers are guilty of.
Service providers that we verify and list also benefit from our high volume of website visitors, our occasional press releases, and presence at networking events in New York City and other areas. Listed companies may be required to display a badge on their website, such as the one below:
You can learn more about the requirements and e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about joining. MPR advises consumers to make the best informed decision and to remember that we are committed to free unbiased information.

It’s no secret that small and medium-sized business owners have been skipping the loan application process and turning to merchant cash advances in order to recapitalize their companies, but what about those businesses that don’t do many – or any – credit card sales. One alternative is invoice cash advances, but for businesses that have [...]
Nothing comforts me more business wise than being prepared for every eventuality. That is all things relating to the office, which is primarily my domain in the company. While I haven’t completely solved this concern, and truthfully, there are events that are out of my control, for the most part I can rest easy knowing [...]
