A payday loan is a small, short-term loan. It is also sometimes referred to as a "cash advance." It is, as the name suggests, intended to cover the borrower’s expenses until their next payday. It is an unsecured loan which means you don’t have to provide any collateral, unlike in the case of other bank loans.

In the majority of cases, payday loans are to be repaid within the period of 30 days, that is upon the borrower’s next payday.

A payday loan is to provide short-term funding . The funds acquired in this way can be used to cover all the pending as well as pressing payments. For instance, you may want to pay house rent, electricity bills, telephone bills, grocery store bills, water supply bills, medical bills, tuition fees, as well as cover any unexpected expenses such as car repair.
5. How much can I get?
The amount of a payday loan you are applying for will be determined by the information that you have provided on your application form. The usual amount borrowed varies from £100 to £1000. However, the final decision on the loan amount will be made by the lender on the basis of your application form.

The loan amount will be transferred by the lender directly into your bank account.

No. Any payday loan must be repaid first before another one is taken out.
16. Is there a possibility of early repayment?
If you wish to pay back your loan earlier than scheduled, please contact your lender as you may be entitled to a refund of a part of your loan fee.
17. What happens if I’m unable to repay the loan as scheduled?
If you are unable to meet the repayment deadline, please contact the lender immediately and ask for a loan extension. Please note, we do no advise extending your loan. Repeated failure to repay the loan may lead to a legal action. The most important thing to remember is not to borrow money if you think you might have problems paying it back. Also remember that if you don’t pay back your loan, it may influence your credit rating as well as your ability to receive a loan in the future.

Whenever you experience a financial emergency between your paydays, we are here to offer assistance. However, we strongly insist that all our clients use these loans responsibly and remember that a payday loan is only a short-term solution to one’s financial troubles and should not be used to tackle continuous or serious money problems.

One of our priorities is to keep our clients informed of all the details, requirements and risks involved in applying for a payday loan. If, however, there are still some questions you would like to ask, do not hesitate to contact us via the feedback form we provide on our website.
