Nobody likes an unexpected expense. When your car breaks down, your home needs a repair or medical bills pile up, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Having to deal with a lengthy loan application process at an in-store lender doesn’t help with the stress.

That’s why CashNetUSA offers a line of credit for South Carolina residents that can be applied for, used and repaid entirely online.

If approved for a line of credit, you receive a credit limit of $650 to $2,800. Most approved applicants get up to $1,600.* From that amount you can draw funds and have them deposited into your checking account as soon as the same day if you apply and are approved before 1:30 p.m. CT Monday - Friday.

As you repay what you’ve borrowed, your available credit is replenished. So you can continue to access funds from your line of credit as needed — without having to reapply.

How does a line of credit compare to a South Carolina payday loan?

Payday loans are a common financial solution for people in the state of South Carolina. Payday loans are short-term loans that are designed to be repaid quickly — generally on the borrower’s next payday.

In South Carolina, payday loans are defined as “deferred presentment services.” That means a business provides money to a person in exchange for a check. That check is for the amount of the loan, minus the fee. Because of how these loans work, you may also hear payday loans referred to as “cash loans” or “cash advances.”

There is no specified interest rate or annualized percentage rate used for payday loans in South Carolina, although there are finance charges that are called a fee. This fee translates to what would be an average annual percentage rate of about 393% for the loan. No rollovers or extensions are allowed due to state law. However, extended payment plans are required to be made available for a 12-month period if you’re unable to repay.

Given the more tightly structured repayment options for payday loans, many people find a line of credit to offer greater flexibility with repayment. With a line of credit, you only have to repay and pay interest and fees on the amount you borrow. And when each billing period comes due, you can repay a minimum amount or the full balance.

Learn more about online loans in South Carolina.

A variety of online funding options are available in South Carolina. They include:

Line of credit. A line of credit isn’t technically a loan — it’s a form of revolving credit (like a credit card). With a line of credit, you receive a credit limit from which you can draw funds that are deposited in your bank account. As you repay what you have borrowed from your credit limit, it becomes available for you to use again without having to reapply. An online line of credit is what CashNetUSA offers in Charleston, Columbia, and throughout all of South Carolina.

Payday loan. An online payday loan is a personal loan that people may use when they need fast cash for urgent financial needs. Payday loans in South Carolina are designed to be repaid quickly — within 14 to 31 days. Because of the short-term nature of these loans, they also have a relatively high cost of borrowing compared to longer-term loans.

Installment loans. Installment loans are personal loans that are also known as term loans. The primary difference between an installment loan and a payday loan is that installment loans are repaid in “installments” over a longer period of time. Because they have longer loan terms, they are also available for larger amounts. Online installment loans in South Carolina can be found with loan amounts of a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

Title loans. Online title loans in South Carolina are pretty similar to payday loans. The biggest difference is that title loans use the title of your vehicle as collateral for the loan. Because this is a form of secured loan, the cost of borrowing may be cheaper than a similar loan product such as a payday loan. However the borrower assumes the risk of losing possession of their vehicle if they can’t repay the loan.

With any type of personal funding option, it’s important that you read the loan agreement and all disclosures before signing the contract. Make sure you fully understand how to repay and how much it will cost before taking on any kind of financial commitment.

Most lenders will do some form of credit check or identity verification before being able to make a credit decision. They will need to do some underwriting to make sure you’re able to repay. But not all lenders will use a “hard” credit inquiry with the major credit bureaus to pull your traditional credit score.

Alternative online lenders (such as CashNetUSA) may use an alternative credit check to consider factors outside of your established credit history. This makes it possible for people who may think they have bad credit to receive funding when they need it most.
