Payday Loans

What is a payday loan?

A payday loan is a short-term, small-principal loan that is usually repaid upon your next payday. Visit our Rates & Terms page to see rules specific to your state.

How much money can I receive?

The amount you receive on your first CashNetUSA loan is based upon the information you provide in your original application and the laws of your state. Visit our Rates & Terms page to see rules specific to your state.

What is the loan fee?

The loan fee is the fee we charge you for borrowing funds and is specific to your state of residence. Visit our Rates & Terms page to see rules specific to your state. If you have a promo code, please enter it when requesting your loan to receive the fee discount.

When will my loan be due?

Your due date will typically fall on your next pay date, unless otherwise specified when you sign your loan contract. Visit our Rates & Terms page to see rules specific to your state.

What if I want to repay my loan early?

Log in to your CashNetUSA account or contact us if you want to repay your loan early. There is no penalty for repaying your loan before your due date.

What if I can't repay my loan on the due date?

If you cannot make your loan payment, you must contact us at least two business days prior to your due date to see if you are eligible for a payment arrangement. If your debit is returned unpaid from the bank for any reason, we will initiate collection procedures immediately.

Can I revoke my ACH payment?

Your ACH authorization can be revoked if you are able to provide an alternative repayment method (such as a debit card). To set up another payment method, contact us via phone or email.

If you are unable to repay your loan on your due date, we may be able to set up a payment arrangement.

Can I take out more than one payday loan at a time?

We only issue one payday loan per customer at a time. If you are interested in applying for a larger loan amount, visit our Rates & Terms page to see if you reside in a state where our installment loan or line of credit product is available.

How do I receive a promotional offer?

We offer special discounts and promotions via email and phone. To opt in to these communications, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Select "Profile" in the navigation tab.
  3. On the left of the page, select "Contact Preferences".


Can I apply if I have less-than-perfect credit?

Yes. Less-than-perfect credit will not necessarily prevent you from qualifying for a CashNetUSA product.* Even if you have been turned down by other lenders in the past, we may be able to help you obtain a convenient credit option that fits your needs.

What is a FICO® score?

FICO® Scores, created by Fair, Isaac and Company, are credit scores lenders use to help them make credit-related decisions. FICO® scores are based solely on the information in consumer credit reports maintained by the three major credit bureaus — Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. By comparing your credit information to the patterns in hundreds of thousands of past credit reports, FICO® Scores estimate your level of future credit risk.

Credit report inquiries to Experian, Equifax and TransUnion can negatively affect your FICO® score, especially if there are many in a short amount of time. With CashNetUSA, you don’t need to worry about your application affecting your FICO® score — we use information from alternative credit sources.

How do I know that I have been approved?

You will receive an email notification if your application has been approved.

Do I need to send any documents?

There are some instances where proof of income is required before your application can be approved, such as if you receive benefits or are self-employed.

If we do need some additional documents, you can send them to us by:

  1. Uploading them online in your account
  2. Emailing
  3. Faxing

We strongly recommend uploading the documents to your account. We can process them and get you a loan decision much faster than if you email or fax them.

When will I receive my funds?

Your exact deposit time depends on the time when your application is approved and a successful confirmation of your email address.

Monday through Friday: If your application is approved by 1:00 p.m. CT, you will generally receive your funds by the end of that day. If your application is approved after 1:00 p.m. CT, you will generally receive your funds by the next business day. For example, if your application is approved at 10 a.m. CT on a Tuesday, you will generally receive funds in your designated bank account by Tuesday afternoon.

Friday 1:00 p.m. CT to Monday 1:00 p.m. CT: If your application is approved between 1:00 p.m. CT Friday and 1:00 p.m. CT Monday, you will receive your funds on Monday, unless it is a bank holiday.

The exact time of funding depends on when your bank will post ACH (Automated Clearing House) credits to your bank account. If you expect to receive funds on a certain day, but do not see the funds in your bank account, you should contact your bank's ACH department.

The document must include your name, routing number and account number. Please do not submit a voided starter check, as we do not accept this as valid proof of bank information.

We understand that sometimes life happens. We’re here to help. Contact us via phone or email at least two business days before your upcoming payment to see if you’re eligible for a payment arrangement.

When I make a repayment, how soon can I receive another loan?

The exact time you will be able to reapply and receive funds after you have paid off your loan depends on your state of residence. You will be able to reapply through your CashNetUSA account.

If you reapply and are approved, you will generally receive your funds once your previous loan payment has been successfully processed. You may be required to wait a few additional days if you reside in a state that mandates a cooling off period between your loans.

Please refer to the Rates & Terms page of your state for more information.

What is an ACH payment and how does it work?

ACH (Automated Clearing House) is a form of electronic debit. When we present an ACH request to your bank, the bank will send us the specified amount of loan fees and/or principal that were outlined in your loan agreement. If the payment is returned because of insufficient funds, we may re-present the debit to your bank.

Where do I send my check payments?

Visit this page to review our requirements for paying by check and to find the mailing address for our Payment Processing Center.

I am a military servicemember and was called to active duty, am I entitled to any relief?

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) provides certain protections and relief to eligible active duty servicemembers, their spouses and dependents. For example, if a debt was incurred by the servicemember, or jointly with the servicemember’s spouse, before the servicemember’s active duty military service, the servicemember is entitled to have the interest rate on the debt reduced to 6% during the period of active duty service.

You can read additional information on the SCRA here. If you are an active duty servicemember, or if you have questions regarding whether the SCRA applies to you or your loan, please contact our compliance department at
