Get Cash from the Coronavirus Economic Stimulus Package

You can now apply for small business loans through the CARES program during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Coronavirus Economic Stimulus Package – News Alert from InstaPay

As we see a decline in trucking miles particularly in the northeast and from port cities due to the coronavirus, we understand this may impact your business.  

In answer, the federal government has passed the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Stimulus) package. There are two plans for small businesses. We will discuss the Payroll Protection Program (§1102) which includes support for sole proprietors and independent contractors. While the plans are still changing a bit, this is what we believe is going to be available as soon as April 3, 2020.

What you can receive

- An immediate loan of up to 2.5 times your average monthly income

- Potential forgiveness of all or some of the loan -up to 8 weeks of certain expenses (payroll for sure) – that means you won’t have to pay it back

- Loans have a low interest rate 4% - this is the LAW

- The loans are all deferred so no payments until next year

What you should know

- These loans will only be available through financial institutions (and possibly the Small Business Administration) – do NOT apply except directly with your bank, or another bank or credit union

- There is no fee to apply

- There is no credit check

- There is no personal guarantee required


The FBI has warned of many potential scams because of the Coronavirus. If you someone reaches out to you offering a Payroll Protection Program or an Economic Injury loan, it is probably FRAUD.  

We at InstaPay know how important all of you have been and continue to be during this crisis. We appreciate your hard work, and thank you for the opportunity to be your partner. Please don’t fall for a scam. You can email us at with your questions. We will review them daily and summarize in a post the next day.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
