Riviera Finance Reviewed on Merchant Maverick


Riviera Finance Gets a Five Star Rating from Merchant MaverickRiviera Finance was given a Five Star rating on Merchant Maverick, an online review website of financial and other business services for small business owners. The review was published on April 7, 2017 by Bianca Crouse.

Merchant Maverick said in closing, “Riviera Finance is best for growing B2B and B2G businesses that need invoice factoring to solve cash flow problems, especially if your business is close to one of this company’s local offices.”

Riviera Finance Merchant Maverick Review



The highlights of the review included:

  • Invoice factoring
  • Non-recourse factoring
  • Startups okay
  • Poor credit okay
  • No startup fees
  • No monthly minimums
  • Friendly customer service

The review touches on a range of business areas of Riviera Finance, such as services offered, borrower qualifications, application process and customer service and technical support, among other areas.

We are pleased to be featured on a review site that provides ample facts and details for prospects to make informed decisions.  And, although our product is essentially simple, our industry is complex with many details to be understood. We explain invoice factoring on our What Is Factoring page, but it’s nice to see a well-known comparison site break it down for our potential clients.

Amad Ebrahimi, who founded Merchant Maverick in 2009, said he started the company out of frustration with all of the misinformation and “shady tactics” that he saw online when trying to conduct business. Merchant Maverick spends dozens of hours researching and testing each company or product, so the user doesn’t have to.
