Representative APR Range

ASAP Finance is not a lender and does not provide short-term loans but refers consumers to the lenders who may provide such loans. ASAP Finance is unable to supply you with an exact APR (Annual Percentage Rate) that you will be charged if you are approved for a loan. The APRs vary according to the information supplied by you in your loan request and your lender. You will be given the APR, loan fees, and other terms by your lender when you are redirected to your loan agreement in the loan request process. Payday loans are relatively expensive when compared with other loan products. Payday loans are not recommended as a long-term financial solution and they should only be taken for emergency financial needs.

The APR on a short-term loan can range from 212% to 1,890% depending on how the APR is calculated (nominal vs. effective), the duration of the loan, loan fees incurred, late payment fees, non-payment fees, loan renewal actions, and other factors. Here are Payday Loans Rates and Fees by State to see short-term loans’ interest rates in different states. Keep in mind that the APR range is not your finance charge and your finance charge will be disclosed later on.

Payday Loans APR Calculation Representative Example

Borrow a $200 no credit check loan for 14 days with a $30 to $60 lender fee. Your estimated APR is 391% to 782%
Calculation: (lender fee / loan amount) x (amount of days in a year / duration of the loan) x 100
Low End of Range: ($30 / $200) * (365 days / 14 days) x 100 = 391.07%
High End of Range: ($60 / $200) * (365 days / 14 days) x 100 = 782.14%

Single Payment Payday Loan

A Payday loans term may range from 5 to 30 days. The loan amount varies from $50 to $1,000 in $25 increments. Lenders charge $10 to $40 per each $100 amount borrowed. Borrowers may get lower fees by meeting the following requirements:

How to calculate payday loans APR?

To understand the outcome, let’s see a $300 same day loan example. The Payday Loan has the following features:

  • Loan amount: $300
  • Total financial charges: $75
  • Repayment period: 14 days

Follow these steps to calculate Payday Loans APR.

  1. Divide the total financial charge by the loan principal: $75 / $300 = 0.25. It shows how much the borrower overpays for each dollar borrowed. 0.25 converts to a rate of 25%, which means 25 cents for every dollar.
  2. Multiply that result by 365 days in a year: 0.25 x 365 = 91.25
  3. Divide that result by the loan term: 91.25 / 14 days = 6.517
  4. Move the decimal point 2 spaces to the right to transform it into APR and add the percentage sign: 651.7%

Financial Implication and Penalties

Implications of Late Payment

You are encouraged to contact your lender as soon as possible if you are unable to repay your loan on the scheduled repayment date. Your lender will set its own late payment fees in accordance with state regulations. Your lender may have several courses of action available if your payment is late. For more information about your lender’s specific procedures as they apply to late payments, please, review your loan agreement or contact your lender directly.

Implications of Non-Payment

The costs associated with loans of up to $500 can range from 15% to 40% of the entire loan amount, and the charges associated with loans of more than $500 can be even more. Your lender may also charge late fees as well as fees for non-sufficient funds. As an example, your lender may charge you a $20 insufficient funds fee as well as 15% of the loan balance as a late fee. Please review your loan agreement carefully for information about the financial implications of non-payment before you provide your electronic signature.

Collection Practices

The majority of the lenders in our network will not sell your debt to outside collection agencies. Instead, they may attempt to collect the debt in-house via telephone, email, postal mail or even text message. Similarly, they will not threaten criminal charges or sue borrowers; they will generally offer debt settlements over time instead. Every lender in our network is required to adhere to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act which protects consumers from being abused or harassed by debt collectors.

Impact on Credit Score

Lenders have the right to report your failure to repay a loan to one or all of the major credit reporting agencies — Experian, Equifax, and Transunion. This negative report will be reflected on your credit history indefinitely until the loan is repaid in full. After the lender has received the payment in full, they can report this to the credit reporting agencies and the report may be removed from your record.

Renewal policy

Some of the lenders in our network may automatically renew your loan if it becomes past the due date. You should check your loan agreement for your lender’s policy on automatic loan renewal prior to e-signing your loan agreement. If your loan is renewed, there will be additional charges as determined by your lender, and the minimum term can be set up. Your lender may offer you other options in addition to renewal, including the ability to repay your loan in full at a later date or repay your loan over time in a series of installments.
