General Questions


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 assist you in obtaining a convenient credit option that fits your needs.

What is a FICO® score?

FICO® Scores, created by Fair, Isaac and Company, are credit scores used by 90% of top lenders to help them make billions of credit-related decisions every year.1 FICO® Scores are calculated based solely on the information in consumer credit reports maintained by the 3 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 need not worry about your application affecting your FICO® score, as we do not make an inquiry that would affect your FICO® Scores. Instead, we use information from alternative credit sources and scores.


How do I know that I have been approved?

You will receive an email notification once your application has been approved. CashNetUSA and the lender reserve the right to make adjustments to your approval until the time you receive the funds in your bank account based on new information regarding your application.

Do I need to fax or email any documents?

There are some instances where proof-of-income is required prior to your application being approved, including:

  1. If you receive alimony
  2. If you receive disability benefits
  3. If you receive social security benefits
  4. If you are self-employed
  5. If you reside in IL, NM, NV, RI or WA

Proof-of-income may include a government benefits award letter or a recent bank statement displaying regular deposits . Please review our Rates & Terms page for more information about regulations in your state.

Line of Credit

How does a line of credit work?

  1. Apply only once online. It only takes a few minutes to apply and less-than-perfect credit will not necessarily keep you from qualifying for this convenient credit product.
  2. Request draws at any time. Once your application is approved and the Line of Credit Agreement is executed, you can just login to your online account and request as much as you need up to your available credit limit. You can request draws as many times as you want, as long as you have available credit.
  3. Funds will be deposited directly into your checking account typically by the next business day.*

What do I need to know about a line of credit?

  • Account Balance: Your account balance, or outstanding balance, is the total amount due to CashNetUSA. This includes your principal balance, interest and fees charged.
  • Billing Period: Your billing period is the length of time between when your billing statement opens and closes. Depending on how often you’re paid, these periods might be bi-weekly, bi-monthly or monthly.
  • Principal Balance: Your principal balance is the amount you have drawn minus any principal payments you have made.
  • APR: APR (annual percentage rate) is a measure of the cost of credit, expressed as a yearly rate.
  • Minimum Payment: The minimum payment is the amount you must pay on each due date. This amount will depend on whether your billing period is bi-weekly, bi-monthly or monthly.

What time will the funds be in my bank account?

If you request an advance and it’s approved by 6 p.m. CT Monday – Thursday, you will generally receive your funds by the next business day.* If your advance is approved after 6 p.m. CT on Thursday but before 6 p.m. CT on Sunday, you will receive funds on Monday (unless Monday 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.

This confirmation request will only be applied to your first advance requested — all future advances will not require an email address confirmation. 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. They should be able to tell you when the funds will become available.

What are my repayment options?

You may choose to make one or more of the following repayment options during any billing cycle:

  • Minimum Payment: Each billing cycle, you must pay all interest accrued at the end of the prior billing period, plus a percentage of the total of (i) the principal balance, (ii) the total balance of cash advance fees and (iii) any late fees.
  • Additional Payments: You may make payments in addition to your minimum, in any amount and at any time, by logging into your online account or calling 888.627.6463. Repaying your account balance early can reduce your interest.
  • Pay in Full: You may pay your account balance in full at any time without any prepayment penalties. Paying your balance in full will reduce your interest and reinstate your full available credit.

How do I know when my minimum payments will be due?

You minimum payments will typically be due according to the payment schedule you specify in your Line of Credit application.
