If you have a bill that is looming and do not have the money to pay for it, there is no need to spend hours on end wondering about how you are going to get the money you need. Getting a payday loan to help pay for your bills is easier than ever. You can apply for the loan from the comfort of your house over the internet.
Taking the time to apply for a payday loan in person can be a bit costly. It costs gas to get there and your time is worth a lot. You can go to the website, fill out some personal information about yourself, and in as soon as ten minutes find out if you have been approved for the payday loan. If you apply for a loan from a bank, you have to wait days to find out if you are approved for the loan. That bill that is looming could be delinquent by then and you could owe even more money because of it being tardy.
If it is your fist time getting a payday loan, you can get up to £1000 and after that, you will be able to get up to £1500. You have options when it comes to the payday loan you get. You also have options when it comes to paying back the loan. You can choose to pay it back in one lump sum, have the payments split over two pay periods, or have the payments split over three pay periods. This allows you to rest assured you are able to pay back the loan and still pay your other bills.
Payday loans are essentially a credit agreement that you will enter into with a chosen lender (if you use an online credit brokerage). They are simple to apply for, but are often mistaken for an easy form of accessing money. Many websites and indeed, TV commercials are advertising their products all over the UK and this highlights the almost saturated, short term, unsecured loan market. This has been challenged by some commentators but, in reality a UK Payday Loan is a form of credit that in the not to distant past was not available. In the boom years of early 2000′s payday loans were not an option for some. I’m sure many people who needed credit facility in those years would have benefited from being able to access a loan. Instead they were forced to turn to credit cards, or bank loans to gain funding. This is not an issue now in the glorious 2013 as payday loans are everywhere – billboards, radio adverts, expensive TV campaigns. Caution should still be taken with this form of credit however and despite the increased number of lenders, many people are using them over and over. Check your outgoings before applying for a payday loan and if you are struggling to repay your debt always communicate with the lender.

UK Payday Loans going into 2013
Now that we have got to that ”weird” time, in between Christmas and New Year (do we still say Happy Christmas now?!), it is evident that the shops are still bustling with people trying to find the right bargain in the post Christmas sales. Recent news reports showed crazed shoppers literally walking over each other to get to the latest bargains in the shops, with some people queuing from 4am!! These eager beavers had obviously worked out their strategy in getting bargains for their goods. Whilst the payday loan sector has been heavily criticised in the media of late, using a payday loan for such purchases as post Xmas bargains would not be the most appropriate way to utilise this type of short term, credit option. I have therefore decided to write 3 of the very best tips on how best to inform your decision making if you are looking to source uk payday loans and, perhaps more importantly, what you would need to avoid going into 2013 if you are in need of a short term payday type loan.
Tip One – Look Everywhere
Look around to find the best lender. Quite simply, the UK (and USA and Canada) market is awash with payday lenders ready to part with their cash. If you spend time looking on any major search engine, you will see a plethora of lenders touting their services. Look for the best APR (annual percentage rate) as this will impact on what you need to pay back. When you are filtering through the different lenders always check the repayment terms and conditiosn before you apply as this could impact on you later.
Tip two – What Can You Afford
Stating the obvious here maybe, but what amount of money can you afford to borrow. Many of the leading payday loan lenders in the UK will provide you up to £1000. If you apply for £1000, do you have the capacity to pay it back? If not then stay clear of the loan. If you can’t afford to repay then look for alternative ways of accessing the money, such as credit unions who offer much lower interest rates on their loan deals.
Tip Three – Don’t Rush
It is possible – with some of the main payday loan protagonists – to get funds in your bank within 15 minutes. This is tempting, particularly if you need money quickly. However, once you have spent time looking for the right lender, and you have then worked out what you can afford to borrow/repay, sleep on your decision to borrow the money. Talk it through with your friends or relatives. If you take your time before applying you make the right decision on whether or not you should borrow the money.
These are just 3 tips that I have thought would be of some use for potential loan applicants. There are many more and we will be posting more payday loans advice into 2013.
