Payday Loans in Brisbane

Coming up short well before the end of the month? Find out your short term loan options in Brisbane.

Thanks to tourism and a boom in the white-collar and blue-collar industries, Brisbane currently boasts one of the highest average incomes per household in Australia. Even so, out of the three million people in Australia's most populous city, thousands still struggle to make ends meet between paydays.

Payday loans can be easy to secure: applying for one requires practically no paperwork. People can almost always apply online and funds are made available hours after approval. Between the rising cost of living, unforeseen costs and household expenses, payday loans could provide relief when a salary falls short of bridging the gap.

Information about how to compare payday loans

How to compare Brisbane Payday Loans

How to compare short term loan lenders

In general, payday-loan providers have minimal requirements for approval and in a vas majority of occasions, every applicant is approved. The price for the guarantee of quick cash is high interest and repayment required within a short period of time. The applicant has to consider these terms seriously when deciding how much to borrow.

For example, one of the criteria for a payday loan from Loan Ranger Cash Loans is that applicants must receive their salaries electronically. Based on the application, the client accepts the offered amount via electronic signature and the 'Little Loan' is transferred.

What areas in Brisbane are Payday Loans available?

Payday loan providers generally have a strong online presence, but people can find provider offices almost anywhere in the greater Brisbane area.

  • Inner-city precincts South Bank and Fortitude Valley are considered the fashion, entertainment and social hubs.
  • Brisbane's suburbs Include the chic Ascot and Hamilton, West End with its classic and vintage overtones, Roma Street Parkland with its iconic park and Bayside with its foreshores of Shorncliff, Wynnum and Manly.

What are the benefits and drawbacks to weigh up?

  • Approved within hours.
    A payday loan is approved within hours following the application and money is made available almost immediately after approval.
  • Relieves financial pressure.
    When in a tough spot financially and all options have been exhausted, a cash injection via a payday loan provides a welcome boost until the next payday.
  • Minimal paperwork.
    Most applications are submitted online, which means zero paperwork. Applicants are not required to provide reasons for the loan and providers don't conduct credit-history checks.
  • Short term.
    Most providers require that the payday loan be repaid by the following payday or within a maximum of 50 to 60 days.
  • High rates and fees.
    Since there are fewer criteria and no credit checks required for loan approval, the fees and rates for payday loans are quite high.

Questions to ask before you borrow

Just because providers are willing to lend the maximum for which an applicant is eligible, doesn't mean that the maximum amount should be borrowed. Work out what your ongoing repayments will be before you borrow and make sure they are affordable.

While most lenders can get you your approved loan on the day you apply, others may take longer or even shorter. Ask when you should expect your loan.

If borrowers can't make repayments, providers propose certain solutions like extending the term of the contract with reduced payments or delaying payment for a certain time. However, the provider can take action if the borrower is found to be in breach of the credit contract.

All payday-loan providers urge potential clients to do their research before applying for a loan, so in the spirit of financial responsibility, shop around and compare rates before committing to a contract.
