Kabbage, a US start-up that provides working capital advances to online merchants has raised $6.65 million in a series a funding round led by BlueRun Ventures.

David Bonderman, founder of TPG Capital, Warren Stephens, CEO of Stephens and the UPS Strategic Enterprise Fund also participated in the round.

Atlanta-based Kabbage targets merchants selling goods online, offering capital advances of up to $12,000. It began making advances for eBay sellers in April, with other sites set to be added.
