Q: Is it necessary that you run the business for some time before you become eligible for credit from Wells Fargo?
The existence of business might be responsible for some loans, but Wells Fargo business credit cards do not require that a business be established for a specified period of time. Quite contrary, the business credit cards are designed for new businesses to begin establishing business credit. Depending on the business types, whether it is a new one with less than 2 years in business or well established for over 2 years, Well Fargo has different loans. The FastFlexSM Small Business Loan is an unsecured loan product that is suitable for young businesses or a loan from Wells Fargo that is guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration, also known as an “SBA loan.” For any kind of business loans, good personal credit is a must.
Q: What does it mean “the major credit card”?
Some of the credit cards count as the major credit cards and one of them is the Wells Fargo Secured Credit Card. This means that it will report information to the major credit bureaus on a monthly basis. This is very important since it helps you improve your credit standing and makes it easier and faster for you to get another credit.
