Ottawa Payday Loans

The Smart Payday Loan Alternative

Easy to Apply and Qualify

Payday loans Ottawa

Ottawa is Canada’s capital. The city is situated between Montreal and The American border.  The city’s location on the south bank of the Ottawa River was an important factor for its settlement and development. Originally a Lumbering community, Ottawa has developed in to a magnificent city with a population of just under 1 million people.  Many industries contribute the fast growing GDP of the Capital. The industry leaders are High Tech and Federal Government, contributing to a combined 37.1% of the city’s GDP. Other industries like Health and Education, Construction and Trade account for close to 20%, while Finance, Insurance and real estate only account for about 10 % of the capitals GDP. Although Finance is not the biggest industry, Ottawa’s non-prime finance segment is still thriving with about 15 payday loan stores close to the downtown area. This is due to the fact that bank do not offer small loans and this is where payday lenders come in.

A payday loan is an ideal product for a sudden financial need and has been used by Ottawa residents for many years. Most people in Canada reported that they used payday loans to pay bills, cover unexpected expenses, or to make a necessary purchase. The costs associated with these loans vary, however, most lenders charge a rate of $15 for every $100 borrowed, for a two week period. Unlike more conventional financial products, merchants in this segment, offer 14 day terms and can go up to 60 days. It is important to note that most companies only offer terms of 14 days. Although these loans are easy to obtain and quick to reimburse, the rates associated with payday loans, can be many times higher than those of a credit card. When you consider the high cost of borrowing and the short term of reimbursement, you will begin to see how they can be detrimental to your economic wellbeing, when not used responsibly. Paying back a $500 loan in two weeks can cost up to $575.00. This amount represents a significant part of the average paycheck and can lead to falling behind on other financial obligations.

It is important to be very responsible when taking out a payday loan. Borrowers must first consider their budget in order to determine the amount they should apply for. Making sure that the total reimbursement does not cause future financial problems, is key to using the loan responsibly and benefiting from this service.

Instant Same Day Approval Even With Bad Credit

Payday Loans Ottawa no Credit Check

Payday loans have made their way to the Canadian market approximately twenty five years ago. For over two decades, payday lenders have been providing alternative loan products and assisting borrowers in obtaining emergency cash when they need it. No Credit checks, accepting bad credit and rapid application processes make these loans attractive to non-prime borrowers in Ottawa as well as the rest of Ontario.

The industry has gone through a lot regulation throughout the years and this has resulted in a better and more legitimate loan service. Although the market was substantially regulated, the ABR (annual Borrowing rate) is still at about 390%. This makes payday loans the most expensive non-prime financial products in the segment. Furthermore, not all lenders are compliant to regulations. Predatory lending practices are a huge concern when shopping for any type of cash advance. The internet has become a breeding ground for many unethical lenders who prey on inexperienced borrowers in search of a payday loan. It is extremely important for new users to get informed about laws and regulations prior to engaging with any type of non-prime lending organisation. Some unethical providers offer consumers the option to pay only the interest and rolling the open loan over to a new term. No part of the payment is ever applied to the principal amount and the amount owed never decreases. Another example of unethical lending practice is charging more than $15 dollars for every hundred dollars borrowed for a 14 day term. Borrowers should steer clear of any lenders who provide such services and take their business to a more credible loan provider.

No credit, good credit or bad credit, it doesn’t matter. We have a loan product that is right for you. Additionally,our partners can help you monitor your credit score and make better decisions for your financial future. The information is available in our approval email notification so don’t wait!

Affordable Payday loans Ottawa

Our loan product is significantly more affordable. Smaller payments and longer terms make our loans more appealing to customers. Unlike payday loans that should only be used for a pressing financial problem, our loans are more versatile and can be used for just about anything. Don’t give up your entire pay check.

Below is an example cost associated with a payday loan in Canada

Loan Amount: $500.00

Term: 2 weeks

Fees: $75.00

Number of payments: 1  

Total reimbursement: $575.00

Below is an example cost of borrowing associated with our cash advances for returning customers:

Number of payments: 6

Bi weekly payment amount: $116.45

When comparing these two solutions, the borrower has to consider the difference in cost between the products, the amount of credit desired and their budget. A payday loan is most often due on the borrower’s next pay check, while our cash advance can be reimbursed in a series of payments. All payments include capital, interest and fees, reducing the total amount owed with every payment. The ABR (annual borrowing rate) of a payday loan is approximately $15.00 per every hundred borrowed. This means that the ABR is about 390%. With an ABR of about 147% our cash advances start at $9.70 per every $100.00 borrowed for the same period, and can get as low as $6.37 for every hundred dollars for returning customers. This does not include the APR (annual percentage rate) of our lender which ranges from 26% to 32% annually.

In conclusion, both loan products are more expensive than conventional financial institutions. We ask all consumers to avoid excessive use of these services and to borrow responsibly. Our informative email campaigns are designed to keep consumers informed about other financial products, that can help non-prime borrowers’ graduate to more conventional forms of financing.
