If you go to a traditional bank when you need a loan, you’ll find that they will require a credit check, collateral and the reason for your loan, such as a car loan or a home loan for thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. No loan is ever guaranteed so you’ll need to go through a long, in-depth application process that you may or may not be approved for. If their stringent loan parameters don’t match with what you need, a small, short-term quick loan, then they may offer you a credit card. If you have no credit or bad credit, you can expect interest sky high interest rates up to the legal limit of 29%. Many credit cards have hidden fees, like annual fees, over-the-limit fees, interest rate increases with late or missed payments, and more. Plus, it can take a month to have the credit card in hand and ready for use. It’s no wonder so many Americans find that traditional banks do not meet their needs.

Installment loans tend to carry a much higher APR than you'd normally get from a commercial bank. This is the case because installment loan lenders assume a greater risk by lending to customers without requiring any collateral. However, this higher APR does not mean that your payments will be exorbitant; and if you repay early, you can save tons on interest.
They are far superior to their online counterparts. This is an expensive loan; of course, but the customer service is excellent and the reps are extremely professional, yet pleasant and personable. Review the website and you'll agree there aren't hidden fees. The reps are "very up front" and knowledgeable. Totally satisfied with my experience so far. Just saying.....
Based on the loan term mentioned in your agreement, your loan will be paid back in several scheduled installments, with the due dates typically set up to land on your pay dates. You may pay off your Installment Loan in full or make additional principal payments at any time without any early payment penalty. Making additional principal payments may reduce the amount of interest and/or fees that you will pay on your loan. If you would like to make an additional payment towards your Installment Loan before a scheduled payment date, you can contact our Customer Care team by:

Good credit is not required. If you've been turned down for financing on a car or don't qualify for a mortgage, that doesn't mean you won't qualify for a LendUp Loan. Part of the company's mission is to help those with credit issues rehabilitate their credit rating over time (where available). LendUp offers cash when you need it, without creating that endless debt cycle that so many lenders facilitate with rollover balances and increasing fee structures. And with the LendUp Ladder, we strive to provide a path for customers in eligible states to move up and earn access to apply for more money at a lower cost. See The LendUp Ladder for details.
