What is a Direct Lender?

A direct lender is a lender who provides money to an individual customer directly, without there being any intermediaries involved. Direct loans allow the person taking out the loan to deal with the direct loan issuer who will be lending them the money. This creates a much smoother process and a clearer and more personal relationship between the loan issuer and borrower.

As payday loans direct lenders, we are able to offer you a fast, secure and easy process which ensures money is in your account as quickly as possible. Unlike traditional payday loans, you don’t have to pay your full loan amount back on your payday; you can spread the payments out over 6 months to suit your own requirements.

Why choose Payday Loans Direct Lenders?

  • Timeframes – Getting a short-term loan from a direct lender can be much quicker as you don’t have to wait for any sort of third party approvals and application processing. Therefore, once your direct loan has been approved by the direct lender, they can pay you the money straight away to, for example, keep you going until your next payday.
  • Privacy – With a direct lender, your information is shared with less people, therefore increasing your level of privacy. Brokers and other indirect lenders can share your information with multiple companies to have your direct loan application approved as they don’t generally provide the loan themselves, meaning your details will be made available to a potentially large number of unknown companies at once.
  • Fewer Fees – With a direct lender loan, you will potentially find that there are fewer fees involved as you don’t have to pay for the help of any third parties or intermediaries to introduce you to your direct loan provider.
  • Simpler Process – Dealing directly with your lender makes the process much simpler, especially when applying for your loan online. You get smoother and clearer communication as you can contact the lender directly if you want any part of the process explained in more detail, and there is less waiting around for the approval of your loan application. This also means that once you have taken out your loan you can be sure who you need to contact should you have any questions or concerns about your loan in the future.

Direct Lender Vs. Broker

The difference between a direct lender and a broker is that with a direct lender, you apply for your loan and receive money directly from that lender, whereas with a broker you provide them your details and they then input those details into their system and await a response from various lenders.
