What you need to do to repay your loan early

When you're ready to repay your payday loan ahead of schedule, make sure you do the following:

Check your loan contract

Your loan contract will establish any fees or penalties you might have to pay as well as any stipulations regarding early repayment of your loan. It's best to be aware of these before you get in touch with your lender.

Contact your lender

The contact information for your lender will be listed on any correspondence, as well as on the lender's site. You can usually contact lenders by email or phone, and some also offer online chat.

Ask how you are able to repay your loan early, what fees apply and if any savings or discounts are available. You should also how quickly you can settle the loan, because the more quickly it can be settled the more you can save.

Pay out your loan

Follow the instructions given to you by the lender to ensure the loan is paid out correctly. After you pay the loan out, make sure you can see the account is closed to avoid mistaken charges.
