Goldman Sachs partners with Walmart to offer SMB loans to online sellers

Goldman Sachs continues its push into banking, both directly and through partnerships.

What’s happening: Beginning this week, sellers on Walmart’s Marketplace will be invited to apply for business lines of credit offered by Marcus, Goldman’s retail brand. Walmart’s online sales have soared during the current pandemic, growing 97% year-over-year during the second quarter, and Walmart.com’s Marketplace, which allows third parties to sell to Walmart customers, sales grew triple digits. 

  • Sellers can tap lines of credit between $10,000 and up to $75,000.
  • A source familiar with the details said that Marcus hopes to raise the potential line of credit for qualifying customers to as high as $1 million, according to Yahoo Finance.
  • The credit lines have an annual interest rate between 6.99% and 20.99%.
  • Merchants selling on Walmart’s Marketplace will see a notification in their Seller Center dashboard inviting them to apply for credit.
