Pay Day Loans Online
Payday loans online are short time loans that are availed to people without their having to give security for the loans. The loans are referred to as online because they are applied for via the Internet processed- by the lender- via the same medium and the money wired directly into the bank account of the borrower. This means that there is no need for or any instance where the borrower meets the lender or sends any hard copies of applications or papers.
The term payday loan is widely used to refer to the fact that these loans are expected to be repaid within a short duration of time. This is because they are usually not of high amounts and they are sought by people to sort out emergencies which cannot wait till their next payday. As such they are expected to be paid when soonest one gets money (assumed to be on their next pay day- though this is not always the case-).
Online payday loans are protected by the effective security systems installed by the lender to protect the information which the borrower submits in their loan application (such as their identity residency bank account details or any other financial information) as well as the lenders sensitive information. The borrowers are thus assured of safety and security of their information during the application of the loan and the disbursement of the approved money.
Payday loans online are collateral free; which is one of the things which make them more prominent than loans offered by other lenders and institutions. Unlike other loans- which require the borrower to secure them by leaving a property or asset of equal or more monetary value to that of the loan they wish to borrow- pay day loans online do not require to be secured. The absence of collateral- for these loans- not only saves time (loan processing and verification of borrower’s details time) but also make them non-discriminatory to people who otherwise do not have the said assets (for whatever reasons).
Application of the loan
As the word online suggests these loans are applied for online. This means that potential loan borrowers have to visit the website of the lender- in contrast to the traditional way of mailing applications or going to the premises of the lender in person to place the application- from where they get all the loan terms and any other information they need to know before making a decision. They then fill out the online form provided for submitting the application. This online application saves the borrower much traveling time as well as extra costs- they would have incurred- thus making the loan cheaper and available sooner. Applying for online loans require one to fill in: their name the amount of money they wish to be loaned their residency and bank account details (for the sending of the approved loan).
Interest rates and repayment
Generally pay day loans are considered expensive due to the relatively high interest rate charged for them by lenders compared to regular loans. However this is attributed to the short loan duration as well as the speed at which the loans are processed. Repayment of the loan (plus accrued interest) is usually set to a few days weeks or months by the lender- depending on the amount loaned-.
Processing of the loans
Processing of online pay day loans is fast and approvals are made almost instantly. This is because there is little to be confirmed of the borrower as there are no debit/ credit checks employment history checks checks on previous loan repayment histories and other bad credit statuses.
