What is a Payday Loan?
A payday loan is a small loan, typically between $100-$1000, that is used to help a borrower's unexpected expenses such as bill payments, car repairs, household emergency repairs or other financial emergencies. Payday loans can be a great short-term source of emergency cash, but need to be repaid when the next paycheck arrives. Payday loans are therefore often referred to as Cash Advance Loans.
How much will the loan cost?
The cost of the loan and APR depends on information in your application. The terms are disclosed in the application process when you are directed to the lender's loan agreement.
A representative example: With a minimum 14 day loan term (regardless of early loan payoff), we estimate that the fees and finance charges offered by members of our lending network range from $12 per $100 borrowed each 14 days (two weeks) up to $30 per $100 borrowed each 14 days (two weeks). The corresponding Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for this estimated range would be between 391.07% and 782.14%. More generally, depending on the exact loan amount, loan period and lender we match you with, the APR may be between 260.71% to 1825%.
Implications of Non-Payment of Loan
Late/partial payments: If full amount of principal and interest is not paid on any agreed-upon payment date, borrower may be charged a new finance charge and payment date may be extended until borrower's next pay date. This new finance charge may be a flat fee, or may be calculated by applying the proportionate amount of the finance charge to the unpaid loan amount. Review the late payment policy detailed in the loan documents provided to you by your lender before signing your e-signature, and thereby agreeing to the loan terms.
Non-payment: Any action regarding non-payment may be initiated by the lender we match you with, not by FlashPayday.com. Additional fees or criminal charges may apply to you in the event that you are unable to repay your loan. If, however, your lender belongs to the Community Financial Services Association of America (CFSA), you will not be subject to criminal charges.
Loan renewals: Renewal policies are determined by the lender, not by FlashPayday.com, and therefore they will vary. With every extension or renewal, a new finance charge ("Extension Fee") may be assessed by the lender, and the re-payment date may be extended until the borrower's next pay date. The finance charges range from $12-$35 per one hundred dollars borrowed ofer a 14-day period, depending on the lender. For more details, please review our fees page.
Collection practices: Collections practices of lenders and/or any assignee(s) will be in accordance with the principles of any applicable federal regulations at all times. Lenders may attempt to contact borrowers via one or more authorized methods, including phone calls and emails, to arrange for payment.
Impact to Credit Scores: Your lender may report late or missed payments to the credit bureaus. This can negatively affect your credit store. Consumers with credit difficulties should seek credit counseling.

How much can I borrow?
Lenders supply borrowers with any amount of $100 - $1000. How much money you can borrow exactly, however, depends on a few factors such as the lender we match you with, your income and employment history. Lenders may provide up to $1000 and once approved, and money is wired straight into your bank account.
How do I qualify for a loan?
Most lenders will qualify you for a loan if you:
- Have a job or receive regular income.
- Earn at least $800 per month.
- Are a U.S. resident at least 18 years old.
- Have a bank account in good standing.
Prior bankruptcy, a poor credit history or charge-offs do not automatically disqualify you - you may still apply for a loan.
Do I need to fax documents as part of the application?
In most cases no. However, if data provided is inconclusive or seems false, lenders may ask for additional documentation to be faxed.
Can I have multiple loans at a time?
Payday Loans are intended to be a short-term relief to financial hardship only such as emergencies that require a one-off cash loan. Payday Loans are not a long-term solution to cash flow problems. Hence we highly recommend you do not take out multiple payday loans at once.
