A short-term or payday loan is generally a loan of a low amount that is repaid within 1-12 months. Payday loans usually have a duration of a few days and up to a month or two.
Each lender on our panel has their own unique criteria that they follow, however, the standard minimum set of requirements are that you are 18 years or older, UK resident, have a regular source of income, and have an active bank account that allows direct debits. If you are able to meet these criteria then you would be eligible to apply for a loan.
If your loan application is made on a weekday and you are accepted by a lender before 3pm, then you could receive your money on the same day. If your application is made after 3pm, or on a weekend or bank holiday, then it’s likely that you will only receive your funds the next working day.
