People use no credit check loans when they have bad credit and need money in a hurry.

Most lenders steer clear of no credit check loans, because they believe it’s too risky to lend to people with a bad credit score. However, some payday lenders are prepared to issue no credit check loans.

A word of warning – no credit check loans generally come with high fees. Payday lenders can’t charge interest, but they are allowed to charge an establishment fee of up to 20 per cent of the loan amount and a monthly fee of up to 4 per cent of the loan amount.

Loan amount Max. establishment fee Max. monthly fee
$500 $100 $20
$1,000 $200 $40
$1,500 $300 $60
$2,000 $400 $80

Why do no credit check loans have a bad reputation?

A $1,500 payday loan is a loan that is likely to have a fast approval process and charge high fees. Depending on your circumstances, you might be able to receive the money within an hour.

However, if you want the lender to give you the money almost instantly, and without conducting an in-depth credit assessment, you’ll have to pay for the privilege.

Payday lenders can only charge fees – not interest.
