Sometimes your money runs out a week before your next paycheck. A lot of life’s little unexpected emergencies can happen at any time, and your bank account may feel that strain. There’s many reasons why you may need quick, convenient access to a payday loan, and there are many options out there.

However, you don’t just want any option. You want a safe, convenient option from a trusted lender. And most likely, you want to get the funds quick and get on with your day.

If you have less than perfect credit, you may find it difficult to get a loan from a traditional bank, or have access to the credit you need from a trusted lender. There are lots of payday lenders online and about town that you may see. However, how do you know which ones to trust?

How to Find Payday Lenders Near You

If you're one of the many people wondering "How can I find a payday loan lender near me?" you're not alone. We recommend seeking out recommendations from friends and family, and researching customer reviews from trusted financial review sites.

Once you find a real payday lender you like, it's important to take pains to protect your information. Only work with lenders who offer a reputable application process. Here are a few tips to make sure you're in good hands:

  • Look for a green padlock in the upper left corner of your browser's address bar. You can find this in our LendUp application. It will help you know the web connection is secure and your personal information is for our eyes only. Be advised that a picture of a padlock or the word "secure" doesn't cut it.

  • Make sure the web address starts with "https://" On secure pages, the URL in the address bar will start with https (the "s" stands for "secure sockets layer"). This means your data is encrypted and safe from prying eyes.

What to Look for in a Payday Lender

Finding a licensed lender is important. Here are a few of the questions you should ask during your search:

  • Is the company reputable? This makes all the difference. Make sure you only apply with licensed lenders, so you’re protected by state and US federal laws. Unlicensed lenders may try to skirt laws designed to protect you.

  • Are the borrowing terms clear? Good lenders make it easy for their customers to understand how the lending process works. This includes fine print, like fees, due dates and repayment terms. From the moment you visit LendUp’s site, the terms and fees are clearly stated, so you’ll never get hit with surprise fees.

  • Is the application process easy? At LendUp, we have an online application process that can take less than 5 minutes. And the decision is instant.
