The initial maximum credit limit on a Spark Business Card is just $500. This is hardly enough for many business owners to cover essential overhead costs or take steps to improve their bottom lines. After all, it takes money to make money. Fortunately, a can help you build your inventory, boost your marketing campaigns, or care for other urgent and essential company expenses. Best of all, you can get a credit increase for your Spark Business Card fast with DoNotPay.

How Credit Limit Increases Work

Most business credit cards have relatively modest, minimum credit limits. Many new cardholders are given limits between just $500 and $2,000. As businesses prove their creditworthiness by using their cards, paying their bills on time, and generating consistent revenue, major credit card companies will often automatically increase cardholders' spending limits. However, whether you've got an Apple card, a Wells Fargo card, a Discover card, or a Citi card for your business, these automatic increases might not come soon enough. You may have an essential equipment breakdown, or your inventory could run dangerously low. No matter what the case may be, knowing how to increase your credit limit will help you get the greater purchasing power you need.

When applying for a Capital One Spark Business Card credit limit increase, you will need to provide your total annual income for both your business and yourself. Before increasing credit limits, credit card issuers consider business owners’ income because business owners will be held personally liable for the related debts. This is also true when applying for credit limit increases with American Express, Bank of America, Credit One, and Chase. Before approving your request, your card issuer will also consider factors like:

  • Whether you've made delinquent payments in the past
  • How long you've had your credit card
  • Your credit score
  • The number of hard inquiries on your credit report
  • And more.

For the Spark Miles and Spark Cash cards, automatic credit limit increases occur after six months have passed.

Who Can Request a Higher Credit Limit?

With cards designed to accommodate companies at various stages of development, Capital One has tight restrictions against applying for credit increases for newly obtained cards. For instance, with all Capital One Sparks Business cards, you cannot use for a credit limit increase if:

  • You've already applied for one within the last six months
  • You've had your Spark Business card for less than three months
  • You're unwilling to approve a hard credit inquiry

What Information Will Capital One Ask For?

When applying for a Spark Business Card credit limit increase, be prepared to share your business’s profit and loss statement or other proof of annual business income.

Factors to Consider Before Requesting a Capital One Spark Business Card Credit Limit Increase

Before requesting a credit limit increase on any Capital One business card, it's essential to make sure that you're financially ready. Among some of the most important factors to go over are:

Your Payment HistoryIf you've been able to make all of your Spark Business Card payments on time, every time, you're likely ready for the increased responsibility of a higher credit limit.
The Potential Impact of a Hard Pull on Your Credit ScoreRequesting a higher credit limit for any business credit card will likely initiate a hard inquiry on your credit report. If you're just starting to build your credit, having a hard inquiry now could knock more points off of your score. Cardholders with extensive credit histories are less affected by challenging questions.
Your Current Financial StandingIf you've recently lost your job, lost a significant customer, or experienced other adverse changes in your personal or business finances, it may be best to wait for things to level off before applying. Having consistent income and being in good standing with all of your creditors will give you the greatest likelihood of getting a credit limit increase.
How Increased Spending Power Will Impact Your BusinessGetting a higher credit limit on your Spark Business Card could significantly improve your bottom line. With extra money at your disposal, you can implement more aggressive marketing campaigns, expand your inventory, or invest in much-needed equipment, tools, and other resources. If getting a credit limit increase will make your business more profitable and better able to meet your clients’ needs, use DoNotPay to get the process started today.

How to Request a Spark Business Card Credit Limit Increase From Capital One on Your Own

If you need extra cash before making five consecutive, on-time payments for your Spark Classic card, or if you cannot wait six months for your Spark Cash or Spark Miles card to get an auto-increase on its limit, you can:

  1. Call Capital One and submit a request over the phone.
  2. Use the Capital One website to submit your request.
  3. Mail your request for a Capital One credit limit increase.

Unfortunately, however, there are multiple drawbacks to each of these methods. Like many consumers, you may find yourself frustrated with automated phone systems when calling Capital One directly. It can take time and multiple attempts to connect with a live operator. Moreover, when you connect with a live person, there may be language barriers, connection issues, and other communication-related challenges. Worse still, you might not feel comfortable relaying your personal and financial information over the phone. A mailed request for a credit limit increase could take weeks to get a response.

There are even challenges in submitting a credit limit request online with all business credit cards. You only have one opportunity to get your application for a request right. If you submit the wrong information, skip steps, or make other mistakes, you may have to wait a month or more before being able to apply again.
