The fee for a loan is $17.65 per $100 borrowed. If your payday was 14 days away and you borrowed $100, the APR would be 460.16%*, and you owe $117.65 on the date of your next payday.
*The Annual Percentage Rate ("APR") is the cost of your loan expressed as a yearly rate. The actual APR for your loan may be higher or lower, depending on the actual amount you borrow and your actual repayment schedule.

Customer Notice: A single payday advance is typically for two to four weeks. However, borrowers often use these loans over a period of months, which can be expensive. Payday advances are not recommended as long-term financial solutions.
