In business since 1996, First Financial Online is the nation’s leading marketplace for consumers to find cash advances and payday loans. Rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau, First Financial Online connects short-terms lenders to consumers with good, fair, poor and bad credit.
Over the past two decades, First Financial Online has helped borrowers find cash advances and payday loans when they:
• Underestimated moving expenses
• Need bail money for a relative or friend
• Need money until alimony or child support comes in
• Had to travel unexpectedly to support a friend or relative
• Have to pay several overdraft fees at once
• Need money for an emergency car or computer repair
• Must pay unexpected tuition bills
• Got hours cut at their job
• Had to pay for an emergency medical or dental bill
• Had to pay unexpected school expenses for a child
No matter your situation, you probably have options to get cash fast. Our simple form takes just three minutes to fill out. Because lenders await requests in real-time, you most likely will get an offer from one of them in under five minutes. Then, as long as you can get a few pieces of documentation and more information to them quickly, you may get money in your checking account in as soon as 24 hours!
“Thank heavens I could access extra, emergency funds for my move. One less hassle in a crazy stressful process. Money available overnight and I did it all from my laptop. Now, I’m settled and getting regular paychecks. First Financial Online made the payoff a piece of cake, too.”
– Diane Harris, Portland, ME
Generally, the requirements for winning a short-term loan from First Financial Online’s marketplace of lenders include:
• Proof that you earn $800 per month
• A checking account from a reputable bank
• State issued identification showing you are 18 years old or older
Not so hard! Your lender will need income documentation including pay stubs, pension benefit and social security statements or alimony/child support to approve you. The rest is a matter of taking a photo of your identification and providing the routing and account numbers for your bank. The only reason the lender needs your checking account numbers is to get the money to you as quickly as possible, typically overnight.
Fast and hassle-free works, but security and access are critical, too.
We know borrowers want their private information as well as their funds to stay safe as they hurtle along the internet. That’s why our lenders use 256-bit encryption, the typical “banking-level” security the U.S. Treasury Department mandates for all traditional and online financial services. First Financial Online is happy to meet the highest standards set by our government.
First Financial Online also knows today’s consumers are busier than ever. We make sure you can use your smartphone to review and pay your loan and contact your lender on-the-go. With your smartphone, you can also:
• Make payments
• Change your address, login and update any other account information
• Review your most recent payment
• Review your statements when convenient
• Arrange auto-pay and schedule future payments
It used to be that consumers had to wait for monthly statements to understand how their payments were working. Today, borrowers can monitor their loan every day if they want to. Raising concerns on social media, too, often results in a quick response. Control of your money is in your hands now. First Financial Online thinks it’s about time!
If you’ve been turned down for fast cash by a traditional bank, understand that you still have options. Traditional banks just use too few criteria to make a wise decision about which applicants are trustworthy and which are not. Where they use the credit score and a few other details, internet lenders examine hundreds of data points, including rent payments, cable payments and many more.
Online lenders’ use of “alternative” data points has led to a surge in cash advances because this system creates a more complete picture of each applicant. In fact, it’s the online lenders who have driven a surge of loans in the United States over the past five years. Banks refer to those with a short or absent credit history and no banking history as the “underbanked” (10 million U.S. families, believe it or not). These people cannot get credit despite a consistent work history. With these additional data points included in their credit applications, the “underbanked” have a better chance of being approved for better rates on loans and even savings accounts.
“First Financial Online is so simple. I will resort to this fast, secure,
stress-reducing tool again!”
– Gary McCormick, Ligonier, PA
Expanded data collection isn’t the only difference between internet-only and traditional, bricks-and-mortar banks, however. Tech-infused online financial services have created sophisticated machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to analyze this data. With both robust data input and algorithms, more and more are getting approved, even those with fair, poor and bad credit.
It’s not only those with high credit scores who should get cash in an emergency situation or even when they fall short for the month. We have 20-years-experience watching those with fair, poor and bad credit pay back their loans on time. The key, of course, is never to borrow more than needed and arrange for a way to pay back your loan within the few days or weeks you have it. Discussing your situation with family members or taking extra shifts at work can help you get the funds together so you don’t extend the term on the cash advance into the next month.
Whatever your situation, First Financial Online gets offers to you quickly and safely.
