Are Online Cash Advances Safe? The Risks, Options and Benefits

By Edited Dec 22, 2013 0 0

If you are in a situation where you are thinking about applying for a cash advance or a payday loan you have most likely thought working with on online lender. As with most important transactions that you are thinking about making online (especially financial transactions), there is always a thought that pops in all of our heads that tends to make us all a little hesitant to go through with them. With cash advances and all of the new options that are available online, this is a something that you will need to get over if you are ever going to be able to effectively and efficiently search for your best options possible. Although there are most likely some lenders out there on the web that are only wanting to take advantage of your situation, applying for these types of loans has never been safer. As with any other type of decision that has to do with your personal finances, just be sure to do your due diligence and never jump into any situation that seems too good to be true. Just like with everything else in life if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is and with all of the claims and advertising for cash advances online, you need to be sure that they are truly offering what they claim.

Besides being safe, looking for cash advance loans online can also save you some time, hassle and potentially some embarrassment from being seen walking into a payday loan retail location. Being able to complete the loan process online is very straightforward and as long as you can follow the lender's requirements and guidelines, then you should have nothing to worry about. Also, since cash advance lenders never do credit checks you're still going to be able to get your hands on the money you need even if your credit score isn't the greatest. As long as you can prove that you earn a certain amount of take home income on a monthly basis (usually $1000+ per month), are of age to get the loan (usually 18+) and have a checking account that accepts electronic transactions then you should be set and have absolutely nothing to worry about.

One other great thing about online cash advance lenders is that they sometimes offer various types of twists to the standard 14-day loans that you will usually find at the payday loan retail store locations. For instance, if you go with a Magnum Cash Advance lender then you will only be charged fees for the days that you actually need the money, not the entire 14 days. Sometimes if you can get the loan paid back earlier than expected this can save you some money on fees, which are usually one set amount for other cash advances.

So, whether you decide to go online or not for your cash advance, there are just two things that I want you to remember. The first thing is that online cash advances can be just as safe as the ones that are offered at the payday loan retail strores, so don't be too worried about looking online for the money you need. Just be sure to do your research! Secondly, if you do end up getting a cash advance, please make sure that you only use these types of loans for one-time, emergency situations only and never, ever make a habit out of applying for this type of funding. If you do this you will most likely end up in a much worse situation that you already are right now.
