Payday Cash Loans - What You Should Know

By: Andrew Jones

Payday Loans (otherwise known as payday cash loans or cash advances) have come in for heavy criticism; however, if used wisely, in the way they are designed to be used, they are an excellent source of 'ready money'. They are designed to be used for a very short period, ie until your next payday (hence the name 'Payday Loans'). When used in this way, they are an excellent resource to gain access to emergency money supplies.

If you look at the interest rates (typically 500%-900%) they seem extremely high; however, because the loans are designed to be used for such short periods of time, the amount to be repaid is extremely affordable. It must be stressed though that borrowers must have the resources to pay back the loan in full on the required date, otherwise they could easily become caught in the 'credit trap' and end up owing a lot of money.

There is no restriction on what a Payday Loan can be used for. It can be used to pay emergency bills, to pay for a holiday, to buy furniture etc.

Payday Loans are easily accessible. They can be applied for on line at a multitude of websites and a decision on a loan is usually received within 24 hours. It is also possible for the loan to be in your bank account within 24 hours.

One appeal of Payday Loans is that people with a poor credit history are accepted for loans. However, no more than one loan at a time will be allowed, as it might be difficult for more than one loan to be paid back in full on the requested date.

Another attraction of Payday Loans is that small amounts of money can be borrowed, ie as low as $100. Most banks would not consider loaning such small amounts so a payday loan can be worth considering if you desperately need a small amount of cash fast. Whatever your take on payday loans is, if you are thinking of applying, make sure you read the terms carefully first.
