Payday loans with bad credit
One of the most popular types of short term loan is payday loans for bad credit. Designed to help people with less than perfect credit histories, these loans feature much more accessible criteria; meaning they are often significantly easier to be approved for. Payday loans for bad credit work exactly the same way as traditional payday loans. Frequently for sums less than £1,000, these loans often also feature a short repayment period. Depending on the direct lender, the repayment terms can range from 1 month, up to 12 months, depending on the amount that you wish to borrow.
As with all such loans, bad credit payday loans are available completely online. From your initial application to having the money sent to your bank account, it is likely that you won’t need to speak to anyone or fill in any paperwork.

In the UK, all lenders and credit brokers are regulated by The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It is a requirement of the FCA that lenders and brokers when assessing an application, use all relevant information available to them to ascertain whether a customer should be approved for credit. This means completing a credit check, as well as full affordability and income checks. Lenders offering payday loan for bad credit have more flexible criteria when it comes to the types of customers that they will accept. So even if you have very bad credit, we are best placed to help you find a short term loan.
All of our lender partners use ‘Soft Search’ technology, which means when you apply for a bad credit payday loan through Upwards, your credit rating will not be impacted in any way. Once you decide to accept the loan offer from a lender, they will then perform a full credit check, with your permission. Remember, there is no such thing as a no credit check payday loan.
If you are struggling to keep u with your repayments, it is important not to ignore the situation. The direct lenders that you have credit with will try to help you if you make them aware of your situation. The worst thing you could do is struggle and do nothing as missing, or being late with payments can impact your credit score and you will be charged late fees and extra interest.
There are various charitable organisations who can assist people who are struggling with their debts. We have provided links to three such organisations below
