What Are Affordable Loans?

The term ‘affordable loans’ refers to lending that takes your current finances and ability to pay into consideration, so you may also hear them called ‘loans based on affordability’. We want to be certain that all of our applicants can afford to repay the loan that they apply for and we aim to achieve this through our affordable loan application process.

We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to an applicant’s needs and circumstances, which is why we take a personal approach to each application. We will assess your monthly income, your regular outgoings and your essential spending to see if we have the appropriate loans based on affordability for you. This means that even if you have bad credit, have been declined by other lenders, or need the cash as quickly as possible, we can help.

For more information about our affordable loans, contact QuidMarket and our friendly advisors will be happy to help.

Eligibility For Affordable Loans

To take advantage of affordable loans through QuidMarket, you will need to meet the following criteria:

  1. You are aged between 23 and 65 years old
  2. You are a resident of the UK
  3. You have a current UK bank account and an attached debit card
  4. You are in employment with a take home salary of at least £1,300 per month

If you meet these requirements, we can begin the application process, starting with our online application form. Every application is subject to affordability checks to ensure that you will be able to make the monthly repayments, and extra documentation may be required. As part of your application, we will run checks with Credit Reference Agencies and Fraud Prevention Agencies, so please make sure that you fill the form out carefully to avoid mistakes that could slow the process down.

We never like to turn applicants away from loans based on affordability, but if we feel that you would struggle to meet repayments, it would be necessary to help you avoid any further financial difficulties. Missing repayments has to be recorded on your credit file, which is the same with any form of credit, and can make it more difficult to be approved by future lenders.

Affordable loans are loans based on affordability, so when applying, your current monthly income and essential outgoings are taken into account, rather than your full credit history. This is to ensure that you have the means to make monthly repayments without leaving you in further financial difficulty.

Once you have visited our application form, chosen the amount of cash you need and selected the length of the term, you can submit the form to us for review. Our system will verify and provisionally approve your application, then a member of our team will personally evaluate your application as soon as possible. While we are unable to say how long this will take, we typically aim to process affordable loan applications and have a lending decision within 2 hours. If you apply during a busy period, it may take us a little longer to get back to you and applications received outside of business hours will be processed first thing the next working day.

After your application has been approved, we will deposit the funds directly into your bank account. We use Faster Payments System to transfer cash, so it should be available to you within minutes of the transfer. However, depending on your bank, it could take up to 2 hours for the funds to become available.

At QuidMarket, we aim to be as flexible as possible for our customers, so with our loans based on affordability, you can choose the terms that work best for you. On our application form, you will be able to toggle the amount of cash you want to borrow and select a term up to 6 months to suit you. The repayment figure will be illustrated to you on the form, but the full repayment schedule will be later confirmed during the application process. We use a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) to automatically take repayments from your bank account, so all you need to do is ensure that the funds are available on the scheduled repayment date.

If you find that you are able to repay your affordable loan early, you can contact us at any time to discuss an early settlement figure. We only charge interest for the days that you have the affordable loan for, so we will calculate the interest charges up to the day that you want to clear the loan. If you are happy with the early settlement figure, we will take the agreed amount on the day you want to pay with our CPA, which will then close your agreement.

Warning: You should never pay upfront fees for a short term loan or send money in return for a short term loan. Late repayment can cause you serious money problems. For help, visit:
