“Credits cards are extremely important to small business owners, for two reasons. First, many B2B companies no longer offer traditional trade accounts to their customers. Now, it is common for all but the largest customers to have to pay by credit card for B2B services. Second, for many small businesses, credit cards are one of the few ways a business can obtain debt financing. Most banks no longer make small business loans but instead will give the business a high credit limit ($50,000 to $100,000) credit card. — Michael Manahan, professor of finance, was featured in the “Ask the Experts” section of the Wallethub article “Best Business Cards.”
