Mr McGowan has been interviewed and explained the importance of getting a good domain name, and based on this interview he is a top-notch internet specialist.

Lend.com.au Review 2.0: How does it work?

Lend.com.au is essentially a marketplace of lenders that matches potential borrowing small business owners with the lender that matches its criteria. The site boasts itself as a business financing comparison website, but in our humble opinion it is more of a “smart wizard”.

The way it operates is rather straightforward. You go on the site, fill in the requirements you have and the purpose of your business financing, and then… you don’t get any indications whether they got your details alright and whether there are any lenders available for your requirements. We have conduct multiple tests on the platform and it seems that irregardless to the details you put in, you get a blatant response that does not convey what are your chances of getting a loan.

There is in comparison to Lending Express which is a similar lending platform in Australia. You can use our calculator below to estimate your chances of being financed before even make the first step!
