This article is about the original funding tool that was in place before LoanPro's latest release. This release added the Enhanced Funding tool, which adds functionality with source companies and improved the overall process. This older funding tool still works, but will likely be phased out in a future release.
When you fund a loan, you can give funds in the form of cash or check to the customer. You can also fund the customer electronically. You may also want to fund advancements after giving the initial loan. This article goes over the process of funding a loan.
Funding can be done from two different areas inside a loan. Both of these are inside the Account Setup tab of a loan. The first is in Setup Terms, the second is in Setup Tools. Inside of Setup Terms, you should have a Fund button.
Click the fund button and you will be taken to a new page where you can add a new funding request.
Note: This button is only available if the loan is in an Inactive state.
The Funding tool can also be accessed in the Setup Tools. Navigate to Account Setup > Setup Tools, then select the menu button in the top left to access the Funding tool.
Regardless of where you are starting from in the software, you can begin the funding request process by clicking .
This will take you to the process for creating a new funding request. The first step of the process is the User step. Here you will choose who to send funding to, either a customer directly, or a source company. Click either User or Source Company and then select the user or source company you want to fund from the selection box below. Once you have made your choice, click .
The next step is the fund step. In this step, you will choose the method of funding. You can send funds through ACH, EFT, or NACHA. Make sure you specify the correct payment process by selecting it from the “Payment Processor” drop-down.

Click the option you want and then click .
The Account step is where you will choose which account the money will be sent to. Choose an option from the Payment Profile drop-down.

If you need to enter a new payment method for the customer or source company, you must do so directly inside that customer or source company.
You can choose from the Authorization Type drop-down, which method is being used to authorize this funding transaction. The options are Company Signature (CCD), Individual Signature (PPD), Telephone (TEL), or Web (WEB). Since you are using the Internet to create this funding request, Web (WEB) is probably the right choice.
