Fundamentals of Short Term Loans

YourMoneyLoan.com has provided resources, documents, articles and links that are all designed to help you have the best experience possible when it comes to obtaining short term cash loans. Some of the information available includes the average rates and fees associated with the loan, some of the scams of which you should be aware and the best ways to use these loans responsibly. There are links to the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for your convenience; these groups are responsible for regulating the industry and ensuring that consumers are treated fairly.

Disclosure of Fees and APR

The APR associated with your loan is the annual percentage rate, or the amount of interest that you would pay on your total loan amount over the course of a year. The APRs for short term cash loans range from 260.71% to 1825.00% which is higher than other forms of consumer credit, but since these loans are designed to be repaid in a short period of time, consumers typically pay interest rates that are comparable with the fees for overdrafts and bounced checks. The table below is a comparison of charges on a $100 loan that is extended for a period of two weeks.

Product Type (single repayment) Charge APR
NSF + Bounced Check $45.00 1,173.21%
Overdraft Fee $30.00 782.14%
Late Fee $20.00 521.43%
Short Term Loan $10.00 260.71%
