When you think about borrowing money in an emergency, online loans appear as one of the convenient and fast options. If you are new to getting a loan online, we know that you might be having plenty of doubts in your mind. A more comprehensive understanding and in-depth knowledge of online loans can help you make an informed decision.

We have deliberately divided all the frequently asked questions about our online loans into different categories below to help you quickly find the answer you're looking for.

Loan Basics

CASH 1 offers online loan services within select states. Our online loan offerings include loans commonly referred to as installment loans, cash advances, and lines of credit.

Online Installment loans are short-term personal loans that you pay back in installments over time. Once you receive your approval for an online loan with installment payments, you'll typically get the loan amount deposited in your bank account the next business day. The loan terms vary by state and typically range between 3 and 18 months.

A line of credit is an open-ended borrowing option. Unlike a traditional payday or installment loan, a line of credit remains active even after you have paid it down to a zero balance. You can draw the entire amount or smaller amounts over time, as long as you have available credit and your account is in good standing. Interest is only charged on the part of the money you use, not your entire credit limit.

Cash advances are small-dollar personal loans that come in a variety of terms. Payments will include the principal loan amount and a finance charge. These online loans are commonly used for unexpected expenses like emergency car repairs or non-recurring bills.

Online installment loans, online cash advances, or a line of credit are borrowing options that you can complete 100% online. The process begins with filling out a loan application online. Once you submit your application, the lender will provide you with a lending decision. If approved, you will select your loan amount and sign your loan documents electronically.

After your loan documents are signed, your money is sent directly to your bank account, typically the next business day. Your repayment of the loan, most commonly, is in the form of electronic payment from your bank account on your due date. Here's a tip: To make repayment easy, set up automatic payments.
