At QuidMarket, our aim is to help hard-working people cover their short-term financial needs. We’ve found that the best way to do this is to offer instalment loans – an alternative to payday loans. This allows our customers to borrow what they need and break the repayment down into sustainably affordable weekly or monthly instalments. We offer flexible repayment terms up to 6 months, so you can apply for a loan that perfectly suits your upcoming budget.

As a direct lender of instalment loans, we want you to be confident in your choice. If you’re considering taking out one of our instalment loans in the UK, we strive to provide you with all the information you need to make the decision yourself.

What Are Instalment Loans for Bad Credit?

Instalment loans are any type of loan that you repay in instalments over a set period. There are several different loan types available within this category, and the repayment term varies depending on this. At QuidMarket, we offer short term loans with flexible repayments over up to 6 months.

Our instalment loans are designed to be a more sustainably affordable alternative to payday loans, allowing our hard-working customers to borrow what they need to cover emergency expenses without having to repay the full amount from their next pay cheque. QuidMarket offers instalment loans for bad credit up to £1,500.

The main benefit of instalment loans for bad credit from direct lenders only in the UK is that with a longer repayment term, each instalment becomes smaller and this may be more easily manageable with your weekly or monthly budget. You should be aware, however, that choosing a longer loan term will increase the overall cost of your loan, as interest builds up over time.

It’s a good idea to work out how much you can sustainably afford each month before you apply for the loan. You can use the handy calculator tool on our homepage to get an idea of how much each instalment would be based on the amount you need to borrow.


Are You Eligible for Our Instalment Loans in the UK?

Being a direct lender of instalment loans means that here at QuidMarket, we’re able to set our own decision-making criteria based on what we think is important. We consider all credit scores and are happy to offer instalment loans for bad credit.

Assessing solely on credit score does not guarantee that those approved would not struggle to make the repayments. It could also lead to applicants being turned down when they could have afforded the loan that they applied for.

We think that a fairer way to offer instalment loans for bad credit is to look at your regular income and outgoing payments. If we determine that you could sustainably afford the instalments, we will usually be happy to approve your application.  You must also meet our eligibility criteria:

  • Live in the UK
  • Over 23 years old, and under 65 years old
  • Have a mobile phone (we send an SMS code during your application)
  • Hold a UK bank account with a valid debit card (we run a verification check that takes 1p)
  • Be in employment and take home at least £1,300 a month

Want Instalment Loans in the UK from Direct Lenders Only?

When it comes to comparing instalment loans in the UK from direct lenders versus going through a broker, the main difference is that you will not have to pay any broker fees. With a broker, even if there are no broker fees listed in your loan cost breakdown, they can sometimes be hidden in the cost of your loan, even sometimes in the way of a higher interest rate.

If you are looking for instalment loans for bad credit from direct lenders only in the UK, we can help. As a direct lender of instalment loans, we don’t charge any fees – hidden or otherwise – for taking out our loans. We’re fully transparent about all costs involved.

Repaying Instalment Loans for Bad Credit

When it comes to repaying an instalment loan from QuidMarket, we like to make it as easy as possible for you. The repayment dates will be set to coincide with your regular pay date from work, as this will help ensure there are sufficient funds in your account each time. As a direct lender of instalment loans for bad credit, QuidMarket offers fixed APR interest. This means that the amount you repay will be the exact same every month. We’ll also provide you a list of each instalment date and amount which you can refer to at any time.

When you apply, we’ll set up a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA), which means that the agreed amount will be taken automatically from your bank account on each agreed repayment date. We use a CPA, rather than a direct debit, because this method doesn’t involve the risk of your bank or building society charging you for a missed payment, as they might do if it were a direct debit.

We understand that circumstances change and if for any reason you are worried that you might not be able to make a repayment on time, all you need to do is contact us. We will work with you to come up with an alternative, such as splitting it over subsequent instalments. If we feel you are experiencing long-term financial difficulties, there are several services that can help, including National Debtline, Stepchange, or Money Advice Service.

If your circumstances change for the better, you’re welcome to repay your instalment loans for bad credit early. – simply pay the outstanding balance remaining, minus any interest you would have paid after your early settlement date. To arrange this, all you’ll need to do is contact your customer care manager.
