A payday loan is probably one of the easiest things to secure in storefront lending companies. You just visit the premises, fill in the forms and wait for your money to be deposited to your bank account. No voluminous paperwork, no hassles, and no credit checks. There are, however, certain things you can do to speed up the approval for your cash advance payday loan.
1. Avoid Blind Applications
You may be in a really tight financial bind that you will see the imperative need to apply to as many lending companies as possible. You can probably be excused for your behavior by your family and friends but the lending companies will probably take a negative view.
Thus, you need to avoid sending out blind applications at all costs. You will create a negative impression on the money lending companies, which usually exist in a tight-knit community within a certain locality by the way, which could endanger your application’s approval. It’s always better to apply in one company and then when your application is rejected, apply to another one. It’s a quick process anyway so you will not have to wait for long.
2. Prepare All Required Documents
To avoid going back and forth, you must prepare all the required documents for the payday loan. These usually include your blank check, employer certification and other papers as required by the company, which are definitely less voluminous than, say, those required by banks for short-term loans sans the use of credit cards.
However, if you are applying over the Internet, you will not be asked for as many papers as storefront companies. Just make sure that the online payday loan company is legitimate.
3. Fill in All Required Information
Your application can be rejected or, at the very least, delayed on the grounds of incomplete information. It is, thus, very important to fill in all the blanks when you are applying at storefront locations. For online applications, however, you need not worry so much as the system itself will immediately notify you of the missing information and will not accept your application until such time that the data requirements have been satisfied.
In this line, always make sure that the information you provided about your employer are true and correct. This way, your application can be processed more quickly.
4. If Necessary, Look for a Credible Co-Borrower
There are some lending companies that require a co-borrower for approval of the payday loan. You need to consider the credit standing of that individual, which ought to be relatively good for the payday industry, before considering him/her. Keep in mind that he/she will be paying for the loan in case you default in any way. And speaking of default, be sure that your co-borrower is someone who will help you in times of trouble.
5. Be Honest
Sure, the lending companies probably are not interested about your uses for the cash loan since they are more interested in your capacity to repay it. With that being said, you have to be honest about the information contained in your application. They might not conduct credit checks as strictly as the mainstream financial institutions but they will conduct discreet interviews with your employer. Even if your office is relatively mediocre, just be honest about it.
Ultimately, your payday loan will be approved by any one of the lending companies but getting approved on the first try definitely beats shopping around!
