What Are Online Loans?

Exactly what it says on the tin: a money loan you apply for via the internet. The digital age has brought financial lending online, and it’s now easier than ever to find and secure online loans with the help of Wizzcash.

Online loans also tend to be fairly low value (up to around £1,500) and are unsecured – so you don’t borrow them against assets you own, like a house or a car.

What Are The Advantages Of Online Loans?

There are several benefits to using online loans. These include:

• Quick and hassle-free application process – most lenders will ask you to complete a simple questionnaire that will take only a few minutes of your time.
• Do it from your computer – online loans mean exactly that, so you don’t need to waste time popping down to your local bank. Do it online and then get on with your day.
• Flexibility – borrow exactly what you need.
• Helpful – because online loans can be so quick to secure, they come in very handy if you need to pay for an unexpected cost.

What Do People Use Online Loans For?

People use online loans for emergency costs, and these should only be used as a last resort after all other options are exhausted. Some of the most common reasons why people apply for payday loans online include:

• Urgent emergency costs – like boiler breakdown or car repairs.
• Other sudden emergencies – like a flight overseas for a funeral or emergency medical help.

What Are The Different Types Of Online Loans?

Generally speaking there are 3 distinct types of online loan. They are:

• Payday loans.
• Instalment loans.
• Personal loans.

Payday loans are designed to give you money to pay for emergencies. Payday loans are also short-term and are designed to be paid back quickly, usually within a month.

Instalment loans are similar to payday loans, but the repayment framework is longer. With an instalment loan your repayments would be staggered, and you’d pay back in small monthly instalments. For example, a 3 month flexi loan would be paid back in equal amounts over 3 months.

Personal loans are a traditional type of loan that can now be applied for online. They tend to be offered by banks and building societies are typically higher in value than instalment loans and online payday loans.

How Do You Choose The Right Online Loan For You?

Different kinds of loan suit different financial situations. Here is a guide to what each of the main online payday loans are good for:

• Payday loans – for short-term purchases and emergency situations where you suddenly need cash. You should be able to pay the loan back on your next payday.
• Instalment loans – also for situations where you urgently need cash, but not when you can’t pay back straight away. If you’d be able to pay back over a longer timeframe, an instalment loan could be good for you.
• Personal loans – for bigger purchases that you would pay back over a longer time period. For example, a short course or expensive holiday.

What Are The Fees & Charges On Online Payday Loans?

Each lender will have a different number of charges and fees applied to the loans. At Wizzcash, we only have one fee – a £15 default fee which you only have to pay once throughout the duration of your loan, and only if you are unable to make your repayments on time. All fees and charges have been capped by the FCA too, meaning you will never have to pay back more than double your original loan amount.

You can find out more about the alternatives to online payday loans here.

Am I Less Eligible If I Have Bad Credit?

While we do have to run a credit check as part of an FCA regulation, this will not necessarily affect the chances of being approved for a payday loan. We also run affordability checks, and rely on these far more than a credit score when it comes to approving the online payday loan applications through our website. By always running these types of checks, we are able to find the most suitable customers for the teams that we offer, and will consider the individual circumstance of everyone with the intention to match them with a payday loan that they can afford to pay back.

What Is The Difference Between APR & Interest With Online Loans?

APR is defined as the combination of the payday loan itself and any interest, fees and charges added on by the lender. Interest on the other hand is a numerical value usually at a fixed rate, and is added per day onto the online loan. There are various types of APR, including representative and typical APR, but our online calculator will transparently tell you exactly how much you need to pay back, with APR included.

How Much Can I Borrow With An Online Payday Loans Lender?

At Wizzcash, we want to protect our customers, and your financial safety is our number one priority. Because of this, we only allow our first time customers to borrow what we believe that you can afford, in order to ensure that they are capable of paying the loan back on time. We allow customers to borrow up to £1000 on each loan that they take out. While this may seem like a small amount, due to the short term nature of the loans, any more can be harder to pay back in one fixed amount, with interest, fees and charges added on top. If you are looking for a larger amount, then you should consider an alternative option such as a bank loan.
