1. What is a payday loan?

    A payday loan is a short-term unsecured cash advance. This kind of loan should only be used for emergency expenses.

  2. How to qualify for an online payday loan?

    Each lender has their own borrower criteria to determine whether to offer a wage day advance in UK. Some basic, minimal criteria that many lenders share are the following:

    • UK Resident
    • Aged 18 years or over
    • Active UK bank account
    • Employed

    Please be advised that each lender has their own specific criteria for determining eligibility for credit. Satisfying the above criteria alone will not qualify you for a payday loan.

  3. How much can I borrow?

    Each individual lender will determine how much you may borrow based upon their own lending criteria. Typically, payday loans do not exceed £1,000.

    The repayment date is often scheduled on the borrower’s next wage day (typically between 8 and 25 days). But this will depend upon the terms set by each individual lender. Please carefully review the individual terms and conditions offered by any lender that you may be matched with before agreeing to them.

  12. What if I can’t repay my payday loan on time?

    You may ask your lender for a loan extension if you can’t repay your cash loans on the due date. But, your individual lender’s own practices and policies will determine how they handle your individual situation.
