Amazon Has Secretly Become a Giant Bank

The Street:

Amazon.com said Thursday that its Amazon Lending service has surpassed $3 billion in loans to small businesses since it was launched in 2011. In the last 12 months alone the eCommerce giant has loaned over $1 billion to small businesses. Hiking up the sales for third party merchants is a plus for Amazon, as the company gets a piece of the transaction. “We created Amazon Lending to make it simple for up-and-coming small businesses to efficiently get a business loan, because we know that an infusion of capital at the right moment can put a small business on the path to even greater success,” Amazon Marketplace VP Peeyush Nahar said.
