Rates & Fees
This service is not a lender and never makes credit decisions. For this reason, the service cannot provide the users of the website with any information regarding the rates and fees associated with particular short-term loan products and the offers, provided by the lenders matched with the users of the website. However, we are striving hard to ensure that the lenders in our network strictly adhere to all applicable international, federal, state and local regulations and laws and able to provide fair credit practices within the industry.
Short-term loans should be used as a temporary financial instrument and can become very expensive in case this financial product is used for additional terms. Usually, this credit is associated with relatively high financial charges, rates and fees. For this reason, the industry is heavily regulated on federal, state and local levels. Moreover, the number or organizations, either governmental or non-governmental, which provide control over the agents in this industry and establish the best practices and regulative procedures, steadily grow and develop.
We provide the users of the website with multiple resources and educational material, which can help study the industry and understand their options better to get positive credit experience. Thus, we recommend using the websites of Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, two government agencies responsible for creating and enforcing the laws and acts that govern short-term lending and protect consumers from the cases of unfair lending practices and discrimination.
In order to protect consumers from unfair lending practices, many states have implemented their own regulations in addition to federal laws. Individual states may govern the terms including but not limited to the maximum allowable loan amount, the charges that lenders are able to apply to loans, the number of rollovers (renewals) and term specifications that are available, the late fees that may be applied and the number of outstanding loans that consumer can have at a time. Follow the link to this official website and this resource to get all the necessary information regarding the regulations in your state. Please check back before requesting a loan, as these regulations are subject to changes at any time.
The states in which short-term cash loans are prohibited include but not limit to Arkansas, New York, Vermont and West Virginia. This list is not exhaustive and subject to changes at any time without prior notice. Please, check the official websites listed above to follow the changes in state regulations regarding short-term lending.

If you are unable to repay your loan on time for any reason, please contact your lender as soon as possible. Late payment fees are set by your lender in accordance with the regulations in your state, and lenders also determine their own policies in regard to how they handle late payments. There are several courses of action that your lender may take, so you should check your loan agreement for specific information that pertains to your lender.
Financial Implications – The cost associated with short term loans of up to $500 can range from 15% to 40%, and these costs may climb even higher for loans that are greater than $500 in value. Before you sign your agreement, you should check these fees carefully. Similarly, there may also be charges applied for nonsufficient funds. As an example, if your $100 loan is 15 days past due, you may be assessed a charge that is equal to 10% of the principle balance as well as a $25 nonsufficient funds fee.
Many of the lenders in our network stick with in-house debt collection practices rather than selling your debt to an outside collection agency, and they will never sue you or threaten criminal charges against you. Your lender may attempt to collect your debt via email, postal mail, telephone, or text message, and they may offer you a settlement so that you can repay your debt over time. All of our lenders are required to adhere to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act which protects you from harassment. You can contact your lender for more information about its specific policies.
Lenders are within their rights to file reports with the three major credit bureaus—Experian, Equifax and Transunion—if you fail to repay your loan. This negative remark will lower your credit score and may make it impossible for you to obtain short term loans or other forms of credit in the future. However, once you have repaid your debt to your lender in full, this will be reported to the credit agencies and the negative remark will be removed from your credit history.
Some of the lenders in our network participate in what is known as automatic loan renewal. Simply put, if your loan is beyond a specific amount of time past due, your lender will rollover your loan. This may be offered to you in addition to options like repaying your loan in full at a later date or repaying your debt in installments over time. The minimum term for an automatic renewal is 15 days and you will likely be required to pay renewal fees and additional interest charges.
