How you repay your loan depends on the lender you apply with. For online payday loans, you need to provide an ACH authorization for the lender to take the repayment amount from your checking account on the due date. If the lender also has a physical loan office, you may be able to write a personal check to make your repayments.
Make sure you understand your repayment terms before signing the contract. Some lenders may only set up renewal or roll over fees on the day your loan is due, meaning you can extend your loan term instead of paying it off at that time. In some cases, you may get three months or more to repay your short-term loan.
It’s not uncommon to have trouble paying off a payday loan. But sometimes it’s unclear what your lender can and can’t do to get the money you owe. If you default, your payday lender will likely turn your debt over to a collection agency.
Debt collectors sometimes take extreme measures to get their money, some even going as far as (illegally) threatening you with jail time. While you can’t face criminal charges for defaulting on a cash advance, your lender can sue you for assets to cover what you owe.
This service is not available in all states. If you request a loan in a particular state where such loans are prohibited,or in a location where Brightloans.net does not have an available lender, you will not be connected to a lender. In some cases, you may be given the option of obtaining a loan from a tribal lender. Tribal lenders are subject to tribal and certain federal laws while being immune from state law including usury caps. If you are connected to a tribal lender, please understand that the tribal lender’s rates and fees may be higher than state-licensed lenders. Additionally, tribal lenders may require you to agree to resolve any disputes in a tribal jurisdiction. You are urged to read and understand the terms of any loan offered by any lender, whether tribal or state-licensed, and to reject any particular loan offer that you cannot afford to repay or that includes terms that are not acceptable to you.
The purpose of shorter duration loans is to provide the borrower temporary financial relief. Such loans are not a long-term financial solution. Persons facing serious financial difficulties should consider other alternatives or should seek out professional financial advice.

The lender you are connected to will provide documents that contain all fees and rate information pertaining to the loan being offered, including any potential fees for late-payments and the rules under which you may be allowed (if permitted by applicable law) to refinance, renew or rollover your loan.

If you cannot make a payment on time, you should contact your lender immediately and discuss how to handle late payments.
