Frequently asked questions

To use your BlueVine line of credit, here’s how it works: Once approved for a credit line, request funds directly from your dashboard. Funds are then deposited in your bank account in as fast as hours. Payments are automatically debited from your account each week or month over 6 or 12 months. As you pay off your balance, your available credit line is automatically replenished. Plus, because your repayments are calculated with simple interest, you can save on interest when you pay early. BlueVine doesn’t charge prepayment, or early repayment, fees.

Here’s how BlueVine’s Invoice Factoring works. First, pick and choose an invoice(s) that you want to fund and submit it via the BlueVine dashboard or sync your favorite accounting software. We’ll deposit up to 90% of the invoice value upfront into your bank account in as fast as a few hours. Then, once your invoice has been paid by your customer, you’ll receive the rest of the invoice value minus our fee. Throughout the entire process, you’ll be guided by one of our dedicated and knowledgeable representatives.

Weekly repayments are automatically debited from your bank account. As long as you have sufficient money in your bank account, you never have to worry about missing a payment.

BlueVine currently accepts invoices where:

  • The service or product was completed, delivered and accepted by your customer
  • The customer is based in the US or Canada (English speaking provinces)
  • The customer is a business or government (not a consumer)
  • The invoice face value is higher than $500
  • The payment term is shorter than 13 weeks
  • The due date is at least 1 week away
