How much does a PaydayLoanToday.com payday loan cost?
The finance charge for our cash advance service is based upon the amount borrowed and the length of time you have the loan out (i.e. the loan period). We also charge a small transaction fee for each loan based on the finance charge incurred. Loans up to $300 are charged an 11.9% transaction fee, and loans from $301-$500 incur a 7.9% transaction fee.
Our loan fees are determined as follows:
- $15 per $100 for 1-10 day loan periods
- For example, a 7-day $100 loan has a subtotal of $115 (780% APR) with a transaction fee of $1.79, bringing the total payback to $116.79.
- $17.50 per $100 for 11-20 day loan periods
- For example, a 14-day $100 loan has a subtotal of $117.50 (455% APR) with a transaction fee of $2.08, bringing the total payback to $119.58.
- $25 per $100 for 21-30 day loan periods
- For example, a 30-day $100 loan has a subtotal of $125 (304% APR) with a transaction fee of $2.98, bringing the total payback to $127.98.
Payday loans are short-term financial solutions and they are not intended to be taken out for long periods of time. We encourage responsible borrowing and advise those who have more serious long term financial problems to seek credit counseling.

You are eligible for another loan once we receive verification that we have successfully received your last loan payment. It usually takes us four (4) business days to receive verification that the debit has cleared your account. You can fax a copy of your online bank statement, or a mini-statement from your bank or ATM showing proof of the loan payment deduction from your account to have your new loan request processed within this 4 day period. If you are unable to provide verification that your debit has cleared, you will need to wait the 4 days for us to receive verification before a new loan can be processed.
How do I repay my loan?
By E-Signing your loan agreement, you authorize us to electronically debit your checking account on your pay date of choice within the next thirty (30) days. The total loan balance (which includes the loan fee) will be debited unless a loan extension is submitted online by 3:00pm PST THE BUSINESS DAY BEFORE YOUR DUE DATE (this does not include weekends & holidays).

Your account will be automatically scheduled for re-debit on your next payday unless funds are available sooner.

If your debit is returned a second time, you will be contacted again to make arrangements to resolve your delinquent loan. If we do not receive a response from you or we are unable to collect your payment after the 3rd electronic debit, your file will be sent to our Collections Department.

dates, please call 1-800-360-8884 for assistance.
How can I qualify for a $500 payday loan?
Our website pre-qualifies you online in the beginning of the application
process. Some customers qualify for a $500 loan when they first apply with
us. Others work their way up to $500 over time after having successful
transactions with us. The amount you are qualified to borrow is based
upon the monthly net amount of your payroll direct deposit. We usually review
a customers file for a requested increase after three successful transactions
for their qualifying amount. Increases are usually approved in $50 increments at a
time. Immediate credit increases may be granted to those customers who fax
two (2) pay stubs showing that they have had an increase in pay.
Once approved, will I have to fax all of the required documents each time I want another loan?
No. As an existing customer, future loans can be submitted online electronically,
so there will be no need to fax! If your last loan with has been debited
within 4 days, we do require you fax us proof that the debit
cleared because it takes us 4 days from when your debit is processed for us to
get confirmation that it has cleared your account. This can be an online
statement or a mini statement from your bank or ATM. The only other time you
should have to fax us anything is if you change your bank account. We will
then need a filled out check from your new account with your signature

to resolve all disputes involving them, their
agents, [servicers,] directors, officers and employees. This
Agreement's arbitration clause applies to this Agreement and any
other documents executed to further the loan being made under this Agreement. This
Agreement to arbitrate applies to any preexisting
claims between or among the parties and any subsequent claims that may arise between or among them.
Rules and forms of the NAF may be obtained and all claims shall be filed at any NAF office,

of the arbitrator. Any participatory
hearing will take place at a location near your residence.

THROUGH A COURT BUT HAVE AGREED TO RESOLVE

OPTION TO SEEK COLLECTION OF PAYMENT(S) DUE
IN COURT RATHER THAN THROUGH ARBITRATION. THE PARTIES VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVE
ANY RIGHT THEY HAVE TO A JURY TRIAL EITHER
PURSUANT TO ARBITRATION UNDER THIS CLAUSE OR PURSUANT TO A COURT ACTION BY LENDER.
The parties agree and understand that all disputes

CONTROVERSY EITHER OF US MAY HAVE AGAINST THE OTHER OR THE AGENTS,
[SERVICERS,] DIRECTORS, OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEEES OF THE
Servicers: The term "servicers"
should be included only where the loan is being made by a bank in
