Looking for a payday loans direct lender in the UK but unsure of where to start? Then you’ve come to the right place as we’ll tell you what you need to know when taking out a short-term loan from a UK lender.

Payday Loans UK

There are many payday lenders across the UK all offering a variety of loans, but knowing which one might be best for you, and whether or not you may qualify, can be confusing. While a lender cannot guarantee whom they will lend to before they have completed the relevant credit checks, knowing what they look for could help to find out if you may be suitable for a payday loan.

When it comes to seeing if you are eligible for a payday loan, lenders will often look at two points:

  • That you pass the relevant credit and affordability checks
  • And that the lender is certain that the loan can be paid back

How to Apply for a Payday Loan in the UK

Acquiring a payday loan in the UK often involves completing an online form by entering your address, employment and banking details, as well as answering a number of questions via the lenders’ website. Once completed, the lender will run all the relevant checks before providing you with an answer as to whether or not you’ve been accepted for a payday loan.

Though it’s not just the payday lender that should be running thorough checks. When looking to borrow, always check that the lender has the following:

  • Authorisation by the Financial Conduct Authority
  • A registered UK address
  • A UK number to contact should you have any enquiries
  • A secure website
