Can I settle my short term loan sooner than the scheduled date?

If you have more than enough money to settle your short term loan before the scheduled date, you are welcome to do so. When you pay your loan before the date, at least you will have one less loan to worry about.

This will also give you brownie points should you need a credit plan in future because we have seen the commitment you have shown on your previous loan. There is no reason to wait for the date of the scheduled payment if you already have the money right away.

What is the best method of payment?

When you choose a debit order system, it makes things easier for all parties involved. The customer has to ensure that there sufficient funds on the date agreed upon. Should there be no funds available, the client will be liable for extra charges and this will impair on your credit profile.

Should you encounter a problem that makes it difficult for you to pay your loan on time, please contact us as soon as possible. Don’t wait until the very last day or the day of the debit order to notify us.
