Easy Payment Options for Your Payday Loan

John has held down the same job ever since he was a high school graduate. As a matter of fact, he has been in the same position for almost 10 years. John makes a decent living and lives a comfortable life but he did make some bad decisions financially that left him with bad marks on his credit report. John's brother just give them a call and wants him to be the best man at his wedding and although John is excited about it, he realizes he's going to have a difficult time paying for the airfare. Since he doesn't have a credit card and he doesn't have enough cash on hand to pay for the plane ticket, he finds himself in a situation that can be both embarrassing and also devastating for his brother on his wedding day. Although he considers asking a bank for the money, he realizes that there's no way he will get the loan with his credit scores.

Unfortunately, far too many people find themselves in a similar situation. Many of us live from paycheck to paycheck and in the United States, that is becoming more of a norm. Add to that the fact that we tend to be living with an economy that is in a free fall and it just seems to get worse and worse. Fortunately, we can do something for these types of emergencies even if we don't have the right scores on our credit report. As long as you have the ability to repay a loan, you have access to quick cash in many cases, even ones that are similar to the above example. You can get this money through a payday cash advance and almost have the money immediately in your hand for these emergencies.

Where can you acquire a payday advance loan?

In order to get a payday loan, you are going to have to meet certain requirements to qualify with the loan company. Fortunately, these requirements are not too difficult to meet.

* You must meet the minimum age requirement, typically 18 years in order for you to legally enter into a contract.

* You must also have a checking account that you have kept clean for several months with no bounced checks.

* There is typically a minimum requirement as far as what you earn. As long as you have had your job for several months and earn at least $1000 a month, you can apply for one of these loans.

Keep in mind, each company will have their own requirements. These three requirements tend to be ones that you will find, regardless of which company you choose.

It typically only takes a few minutes for you to go through the loan process and to find out if you actually are able to get the loan. Once that takes place, you usually have the cash in your hands within 24 hours. The fact that you can get this cash quickly along with the easy application process makes this type of a loan one of the fastest that is available in the industry.

Repayment terms for your payday loan

One thing that you should keep in mind is that you are going to have to repay the loan sooner or later. As a matter of fact, most of these loan companies have very short terms as far as the payback requirements are concerned. The terms of the loan will typically range anywhere from two weeks to 18 days. Another thing that you need to keep in mind is the fact that these lenders are going to charge you a lot of money in order to give you a loan. Most of these companies will charge $25 or more for every $100 that they lend to you which calculates out to be an astronomical annual percentage rate. Take a look at these numbers in advance as each of these companies is required to provide you with a copy of any fees associated with your loan through the truth in lending act.

At the end of the loan contract, or around two weeks later, you will be expected to pay back the entire amount of the loan and any fees that were associated with it. These companies will typically also give you the option of rolling over the loan on to a payment plan. In an extreme emergency, this may help you to overcome a problem with being unable to pay back the loan but you should avoid it if at all possible. This fees that are associated with paying a cash advance loan back over time can be quite astronomical.

Although these cash advance loans can really save you in a bad situation, you need to make sure that you can meet the requirements for repayment. If you're in a bad situation now, you may only make it temporarily better and you could end up in a worse situation than where you started.
