If you are familiar with payday loans, you may already be aware that the payday provider Wonga went into administration at the end of August 2018. The company was heavily scrutinised for offering high APR rates, a lack of transparency and was also accused of irresponsible lending.
Here at CashFlex, we are committed to offering you short-term loans with flexible repayment terms. This means it is possible to borrow cash on the same day, with repayment terms spread over to 36 months.
As a payday lender, Wonga provided loans designed to cover unexpected expenses, with the repayment date set for their customers next payday. To many payday loan customers this seemed convenient, but many were forced into repeat borrowing when they were unable to meet the high single repayment.
Whether you are a previous Wonga customer or are simply searching for an alternative to payday loans, our lenders can help. We do not offer payday loans, instead we can offer loans which are ideal for those who need to borrow a relatively small amount, over a short period of time. As a broker we have a panel of lenders which provide competitive loans of £100 up to £5,000.
If you choose to borrow less than £1,000, it will be possible to repay the loan in payments spread across 3, 6 or 12 months. However, if you borrow more than £1,000, repayments can be spread across 36 months, to ensure the repayment terms are affordable.
We understand that there are many reasons why people applied for Wonga loans, such as a poor credit history and the need for quick cash. Many traditional lenders still rely on outdated decision-making models, but here at CashFlex our lenders consider more than just your credit rating. When your application is processed the lenders will consider your current financial situation and whether the repayments are affordable.
Our application process is designed to be as simple as possible, with our online form taking just 2 minutes to complete. To be eligible for a loan you will need to be over the age of 18 and a UK resident. You will also need to prove that you have a regular income, which is paid into a UK bank account that can accept direct debit repayments.
During the application process on our website, you will need to provide your personal details, employment status and monthly outgoing amounts. At this stage only a soft search is conducted of your credit file, as this allows us to match you to the lender most likely to approve your short-term loan.
You will be provided with a loan quote from the lender which is able to offer the most favourable terms, although you are under no-obligation to accept the offer. If you choose to proceed, the lender will complete a quick hard check of your credit file and your loan could be issued in just 10 minutes**.
As with all loans, you should consider whether the repayments are affordable before you borrow. If you would like to discuss your finances, organisations such as Step Change and The Money Advice Service can offer free and impartial advice.
