To accept the loan offer you simply sign their online contract by ticking a box. The lender performs a quick detail verification check and if everything is ok the money is transferred into your account.
Can I still get a cash advance if I have a bad credit history?
We only deal with responsible lenders. All our lenders perform credit checks, however, they are more relaxed than banks and other financial institutions. If you have been bankrupt, have an extremely bad credit history or are in a part nine debt agreement you probably wonít be successful. If youíve only forgotten to pay a few telephone bills then you should be fine.
Do I need any documents or paperwork to apply for a payday loan?
No. All the lenders we work with are online and no faxing is required.
I have found the service extremely clear & easy to use. Also the staff I have spoken with have always been very helpful & understanding when dealing with me. Accessing the site is simply 'Follow your Nose' & extremely straight forward.
