What is the term of a payday loan?

The term of a payday loan is determined by the frequency of your paydays. If your next payday is within 9 days from the date you take out the loan, you can choose to repay your loan on the subsequent payday. The  maximum loan term per the California Deferred Deposit Transaction Law is 31 days.


How much does a payday loan cost?

A payday loan costs $17.65 per $100 borrowed. For example, if you borrowed $100 and your payday was 14 days away, the APR (Annual Percentage Rate) would be 460.16%*, and you would 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.

How do I repay my online loan?

Just as with receiving the loan proceeds, the process is automatic and convenient. An electronic withdrawal will be made from the account you provided to us on your loan application on the loan's due date via an ACH transaction. If you would prefer to pay from a different account, you may pay online. You can use a different checking account or debit card. Any change in payment method must be made prior to 1 pm Pacific Time on the date the loan is due in order for the change to be processed for the current payment.

If you aren’t sure about your loan due date or the amount you owe, please call the Customer Service Team at 877.613.6669. They are available to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If my check is returned unpaid by my bank, will I be charged a fee?

Yes. Returned item fees are determined by state law. The returned item fee in California is $15.

What happens if I can't repay Moneytree on my due date?

Occasionally circumstances may arise that change your ability to repay. If this occurs, you may choose to enter into the Community Financial Services Association of America (CFSA) Extended Payment Plan. You may request a payment plan to restructure the payment terms to at least four (4) substantially equal payments. You may choose this option once per 12-month period. There is no charge to enter into the CFSA Extended Payment Plan. You may choose this option prior to the deposit of your current loan. After repaying your payment plan, we may re-evaluate your credit limit. Additional details about this option are available at any Moneytree branch or by contacting our Customer Service Department at 800.745.1011.

When do I need to repay my loan?

Your loan will be due on your next payday unless it falls within 9 days or less, in which case you may choose the following payday. The maximum loan term per the Department of Business Oversight pursuant to the California Deferred Deposit Transaction Law is 31 days.

Can I extend my loan due date?

Please visit any Moneytree branch or contact our Customer Service Department at 800.745.1011 to discuss options for extending your loan date.

What if I change my mind about borrowing the money?

You may choose to rescind (cancel) your payday loan, at no cost, at any time until the close of the following Moneytree business day. To do so, simply call our Customer Service Department at 800.745.1011 or visit your nearest Moneytree branch.

How fast will I receive my money?
