What Is A Cash Loan?
This is a cash advance which is normally paid straight into your bank account from a direct lender, although this can also be given face to face peer to peer. These are normally unsecured, and each loan provider will have their own terms, fees and application methods. There are lots of cash loans available online, from more traditional bank loans, to short-term 100% online loans from lenders like us. Our loans are designed to help you with an unexpected bill or emergency.

What Is APR?
APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate, and this represents the cost of a loan over an entire year. This can be helpful in comparing two similar loans from separate lenders, as you will be able to determine the relative cost of each. The total cost of credit can also be a valuable tool, and this will tell you the precise amount of how much the loan will cost.
I Have A Bad Credit Score, Can I Still Get A Loan?
Before you consider discussing a bad credit score loan, it is important to understand what credit actually means. This is generally used to describe a person who is struggling with past problems of credit, but it can also be ambiguous. A credit rating or score is a number, and not an adjective. As a responsible lender, we do not give to those who we believe are unable to make repayments, however we will look at more than just your credit score in order to describe this. If you have a bad credit score, you may have difficulty in receiving a loan. If you do however, these will often be for smaller amounts, shorter durations and be available at a much higher interest.
What Happens If I Miss My Payment Date?
A late payment may result in extra costs on top of your loan, which might include a missed payment fee of £15. On top of this, you may also be charged late interest of up to 0.8% per day which might continue to be charged up to a maximum of 30 days from your repayment date.
If you find yourself in financial difficulty, you should contact the lender for you loan immediately as they may be able to advise on options for repayments and alleviate some of the worry.
