What To Look For When Considering Payday Loans

Aug 17, 2007
Payday loans provide a great convenience for people looking to get an advance on their salary. When one is strapped for green and payday is still a week away, there are many excellent services that can provide payday loans that can bridge the gap for those who need to have cash in hand fairly quick.

There are a number of ways a person can get this loan. Probably the most common would be providing a personal check that is the dollar amount of the loan plus an additional percentage fee beyond the loan amount. (This is how the service makes money on the issuance of the loans) Of course, there are also those that are issued like a traditional loan with fees and interest part of the deal. However, like any other consumer decision, one should deliberate on which service to use for the payday loan and not jump at the first service you see.

It is imperatively important that a person takes a closer look at the finances involved with payday loans. The reason for this is that acquiring the approval of the loan is should never trump the search for a quality rate. Searching for this kind of loan is no different than any other type of consumer search. There should be two imperatives that need to be examined before selecting a venue for receiving a pay day loan.

The first criteria are quality. One should look for a loan issuer that has been in business for a while and has a proven track record of quality customer service. This is not to discount any new issuing companies, but older ones do have the benefit of a track record for quality service.

The second criteria revolve around competitive rates. There is no reason to pay more fees or APR than one has to. While it is not uncommon for someone to be pressed for cash when pay loans are sought, but it expediency should never come at the expense of paying a much higher loan fee than one should be required to pay.

In order to be able to select the best rates, one needs to examine and understand exactly what fees are involved with being approved for such a loan. The first fee, the finance charge will involve a fixed dollar amount on the loan transaction.

The second fee is the annual percentage rate which is the amount of interest that will be required to be paid on the loan over the course of a year. When one examines exactly what fees (and their value) will be attributed to the payday loans, then one can comparison shop for a service that offers the most competitive rate.
