Online lending has become so widespread that lenders now specialize in certain “types” of borrowers. Some specialize in providing loans to those needing the smallest or largest amounts. Others have marshalled the best offers for veterans, active military and/or teachers. Still more make sure they’re providing all the loans to those in a certain state or region. Rest assured, there will be a lender that has the best interest rates for your situation.
Lenders are standing by in real-time to review information about your employment, state of residence, occupation, monthly income, and other details. They then decide whether they would like to work with you. They quickly send an email directing you to their website so you can complete their process, which may include uploading scanned or photos of paystubs and other income statements. Now it’s up to the lender to fashion a loan with the right terms you will accept. If the loan terms seem reasonable, accept the loan
Once you accept the loan, you agree to work with that lender. The lender gets the money into your checking account quickly, in as soon as 24 hours.* Keep in mind that your lender sets your loan terms, interest rates and payment due dates and will be happy to answer all questions about these details. They will provide a phone number and email where you can contact them directly.
What kind of lenders use First Financial Online Online?
First Financial Online has spent the past two decades finding lenders who can provide legitimate short-term loans to borrowers with good, fair, poor and bad credit. Each lender has its own requirements, as well as its own interest rates and payment due dates. First Financial Online is not a lender nor does it provide loan brokerage services.
Lenders typically offer borrowers from $250 to $2500. The amount depends on monthly income, credit score, how long you’ve had your job and more details. Loans that the lenders at First Financial Online provide include cash advances, payday loans, lines of credit, title loans, auto equity loans and personal loans. Which you decide to accept is up to you. You can always decline any offer.
What’s the total I have to pay back? What will my APR be?
As a marketplace, First Financial Online provides consumers access to many lenders. Each lender creates its own loan terms and borrower requirements. We neither advertise nor provide terms, interest rates, annual percentage rates (APRs) or any fees the loan entails.
When a lender provides an offer, they send an email or text or call you to get you to their website and the page that lists all loan terms. Make sure you review all loan terms before you accept the lender’s offer. At this point, it is up to you to understand exactly how much the lender is offering, what your payoff amount will be and when you will have to pay it back. If you do not understand any of the amounts, contact the lender and have a representative walk you through all amounts. Write this information down and keep it in a safe place.
How do I renew the loan if I need to?
If you need to use your paycheck for other bills, but the cash advance also is due, most lenders will work with you to renew the loan.
Renewal policies vary lender by lender. Many will offer a renewed loan that involves additional loan fees. Review the lender’s renewal policies. Talk to their customer service representative to explain your preferences for repayment. If you have any issue contacting them or getting them to renew your loan, please contact First Financial Online.
If I can’t pay the loan back, will the lender work with me?
If you get to your payment due date but don’t have the money, many lenders will work with you to extend the loan into the next month. This step will most likely involve additional finance charges, so make sure you understand them.
Keep in mind that when you accept the loan and sign the paperwork, you enter into a legally binding agreement. Anyone who makes only a partial payment or fails to pay the loan back has breached that contract. The lender may then report you to a consumer reporting agency and/or send your account to a collections agency. The lender or its collections agency can even bring legal action.
