Irish revenue-based financing and growth platform for e-commerce businesses, Wayflyer, has secured $200 million in debt financing and a $53 million mezzanine facility from Credit Suisse. This debt financing follows a $300 million debt financing deal in May and a $150 million Series B funding raised in February this year, which valued it at $1.6 billion.

Fund E-Commerce Businesses

Wayflyer Financial desires to provide the most competitive interest rates to its customers in the United States and Western Europe. To fulfill this ambition, it will use the debt facility for further origination. This will allow them to quickly provide funds to e-commerce companies that want to improve their liquidity and operational resilience. By doing this, these businesses will be able to grow their sales and improve their cash flow.

Aidan Corbett, co-founder and CEO of Wayflyer, said the following about this deal: “Ecommerce retailers need access to fair, flexible and affordable funding from a trusted and resilient partner. This deal helps fulfill that need by offering the best rates and terms for Wayflyer’s customers. This deal will also help Wayflyer continue to be a trusted partner despite any changes in the wider economy that might affect the eCommerce marketplace.”
