What is an Installment Loan?

Installment loans are payday loan or short-term loan in Canada that allows you to repay them back over a longer period of time. Depending on the amount borrowed and the lender with whom you are dealing, some of these loans can last anywhere from 90 days to several years. A general rule is: the smaller the dollar amount of the loan, the shorter the term, though this may not be true for all lenders.

Friendly Lender’s lenders provide installment loans that allow you to make payments over several pay periods, rather than having to repay the loan all at once when you get your next paycheque. Friendly Lender takes advantage of industry-accepted best practices for internet security, ensuring that your information is secure. Request a loan with one of our lending partners ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.

We realize that life’s unexpected events might have an influence on your finances in ways you hadn’t considered. One way to alleviate some of the tension of paying off bills or covering emergency expenditures is to take out an online installment loan, which lets you pay it back one installment at a time.

How Do Installment Loans Work?

The easiest way to explain it is that installment loans in Canada are comparable to a payday loan that is paid off through regular payments over a predefined length of time. Under this payment method, installment loans do not need to be repaid in a single sum on your next payday, making it easier to achieve your financial objectives.

Credit card debt consolidation loans are a type of unsecured personal loan that lets you consolidate your existing bills into a single payment. This kind of lending has some benefits, such as the ability to make payments over time and no early pay-off penalty. These loans can be more cost-effective than other types of payday loans in certain situations.

How it works?

What Are the Different Types of Installment Loans?

There are two types of installment loans in Canada that you can request. Secured and unsecured loans are the options. What these two types have in common is that they both allow the loan amount to be repaid over a set period of time.

The first sort of loan we’ll look at is an unsecured loan. These are frequently offered in smaller dollar amounts and do not have any form of collateral to back them. Because they are a greater risk for the lender, these loans have higher interest rates than secured loans. Small-dollar loans, such as payday advances, student loans, or even credit cards are examples of unsecured loans.

Secured loans have lower interest rates than unsecured ones. The reason for this is the collateral. The title to your home or a car or another vehicle are just a few of the examples of collateral that might be used to secure a loan. These things assist your lender in reclaiming them if you don’t pay back the loan on time, providing some protection for the lender and enabling them to recoup their losses.

Non-conversion loans are not the same as revolving credit, and they should not be used as such. One example of revolving credit is a credit card. The payment amount on a credit card payment varies based on the outstanding balance at the time it is calculated.

Can I Get An Installment Loans With No Credit Check?

Some lenders like to claim that they offer “no credit check loans” but that isn’t true. All lenders do at least some kind of credit check. Credit checks that are used for credit risk assessment will examine your entire credit history with a major credit reporting branch, such as Experian or Equifax.

At Friendly Lender, our lenders often do a non-traditional credit check or a “soft” credit check that may not impact your credit score. Some of the bureaus commonly used for soft credit checks are Transunion, Equifax. While we do not offer a “no credit check” installment loan, and no lender does, please keep in mind that we realize how difficult it may be for you to acquire a loan as a result of your bad credit history or the fact that you have no credit. Friendly Lender prides itself on helping people in a variety of situations to obtain installment loans.
