Considerations and Guidelines for Selecting a Trusted Online Lender

bbb licensed payday lendersIn response to recent statements from the Better Business Bureau which warned potential online payday loan borrowers of the possible dangers of procuring online payday loans from un-licensed lenders. Since ZippyPaydayCash.com only uses reputable and licensed lenders we have decided to release the following guidelines to help assist potential borrowers in their search to find safe online payday loan lenders. There are many trusted and safe payday cash loan sites on the Internet today, but knowing what to look for when searching for an online loan can prove to be the best method of avoiding possible encounters with unscrupulous lenders.

Some Considerations and Guidelines for Selecting a Trusted Online Lender:

Know where you found the lender from – Many of the customers who have complained about, or have had problems with online lenders, don’t really know where they found the lender from. Always beware of how you got to a lender’s site. For example, if you have found them on the 1st page of a Google search of “online payday lenders” chances are that they are reputable and licensed lenders.
Is the lender licensed? – If the online lender is one of our direct and licensed lenders, meaning that they are directly lending you cash and are also officially licensed by your State, you should have leverage if you ever have a real problem with that lender. To be certain, you can always ask for the lender’s license number (usually listed on their site) and verify it against your State’s database. This really doesn’t take long to do, and will ensure that you are in fact working with a safe and licensed lender.

Beware of “Lead Generation” sites – websites claiming to find you the "cheapest loan available” through their “vast database of lenders” should be considered an immediate “red-flag” (meaning they do not directly lend any money, they are only selling your information to a lender). Of course, not all of these lead generation sites result in problems with your loan, but since they are not directly lending you money, it can be difficult to find contact info for your actual lender. In our experience, it is best to stick with a direct lender.  Further, these sites send your information to many different lenders causing you to be inundated with loan offers and cause your credit to be flagged as being submitted to many different lenders.

Contact customer service – Make sure that customer service exists, and is there to service you if you ever have a question or issue. Sites that are attempting to “scam” you, will generally not have a customer service center that you can contact, and in place will have an email contact only. If you are taking out a payday loan and giving out personal info over the Internet, you will want to have access to an actual customer service representative. While ZippyPaydayCash.com is not a lender we do not sell your information to lenders, we only have a select group of reputable online lenders in our network and we let you select the lender based on what they offer that fits your needs. All of our lenders have been evaluated to ensure they are honest, licensed, secure, charge reasonable fees and do not hide additional fees in fine print.

As a broker of direct and trusted online lenders, ZippyPaydayCash.com strives to provide their customers with the information and knowledge available to find a safe and secure loan when needed. We will also inform you as to when a short-term loan can actually help a financial situation and in which situations a short-term loan should be avoided.
