Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) lenders face a tougher reality.

By Wolf Richter for WOLF STREET.

Credit card balances jumped $46 billion to $887 billion in the second quarter, which was still down 4.3% from the peak in the fourth quarter of 2019 and was just a hair above what it was in 2008, despite 14 years of population growth and inflation. Runaway inflation responsible for much of Q2 upside, says New York Fed Household debt and credit report.

Credit card balances also include balances that are paid off on the due date the following month, each month, so no interest accrues. Many Americans use credit cards only as a method of payment (and to get the 1.5% cash back or whatever), not as a method of borrowing.

A report by Fitch estimated that the total amount paid with credit cards for goods and services – in the United States reached $4.6 trillion in 2021, which would represent an average of $1.15 trillion in credit card purchases per quarter.

Yet total outstanding credit card balances in the second quarter only increased by $46 billion, showing just how heavily credit cards are used as a method of payment and the extent to which they are used as method of borrowing, which makes sense given the usurious interest. rates.

Credit card balances of $887 billion in the second quarter include transactions made roughly in June but paid in July that do not earn interest. And that’s been spurred by the surge in travel, much of which is paid for with credit cards.

Other consumer loans, such as personal loans, payday loans and Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) loans, all combined, reached $470 billion in the second quarter, below what they were 20 years ago, despite 20 years of inflation and population growth.

Trying to dodge the usurious interest rate scam: shrinking credit card debt.

People are borrowing a lot of money to finance home purchases and auto purchases where loan balances have increased from 2008; and they take out many student loans, the balances of which have been growing steadily since 2008.

But in order to avoid getting ripped off by usurious interest rates, people are pretty much restricted when it comes to credit cards – especially the huge sums that are paid in full every month and never generate cash. interests.

Credit card balances and other loans combined accounted for more than 16% of total consumer debt (including mortgages, auto loans and student loans). During the pandemic, this fell into the 8% range and reached 8.4% of total debt in the second quarter:

A Word About Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL)

New York Fed data does not detail BNPL loans. But Fitch estimates that in 2021, $43 billion (with a B) of purchases were made using BNPL loans – compared to $4.6 trillion (with a T) of credit card purchases in the United States – United. BNPL loans are therefore tiny, but growing rapidly.

BNPL loans, often aimed at subprime clients, are short-term installment loans, such as one down payment, three more to pay, usually spread over six to eight weeks. These loans are often issued at the point of sale. They typically carry 0% interest and are subsidized by the retailer to encourage higher average tickets and fewer cart abandonments. Retailers can partner with a BNPL lender.

If it sounds like installment plans from decades ago, that’s because it is, but now imbued with the unerring aura of FinTech and AI.

One of the hottest BNPL specialty lenders in the US is Affirm Holdings [AFRM], a startup with less than $1 billion in revenue in 2021. It went public in January 2021 amid immense hype. In October, its shares reached $176.65, after which they plunged through the IPO price of $49 per share, and closed today at $31.55 per share, down 82 % from top.

The company lost tons of money every quarter, including $55 million in the first quarter and $430 million last year.

According to Fitch, BNPL lenders “have seen delinquency rates more than double in recent quarters,” while credit card delinquency rates have barely increased as subprime-rated customers take on BNPL loans are the most affected by runaway inflation.

And like so many times with FinTech and AI foolproofs, credit checks are only as good as the people who wrote the code, and apparently the code was designed to maximize revenue, not control risk. Fortunately, this is only a tiny part of the consumer credit scenario.

Credit card chargebacks rise from record highs, remain low.

There is still a lot of money circulating, but some people are running out. In 2020 and 2021, people used their stimulus checks and PPP loans, along with extra unemployment benefits and some of the money left over from having to pay rent or mortgages, to keep up to date. on their credit cards. And crime rates across the board have dropped to record lows.

For credit card delinquencies, this record was reached in the third quarter of 2021, when balances past due for 30 days or more fell to 4.1% of total credit card balances. Then they start to get up. In the second quarter, they rose to 4.8%, which was still below any pre-pandemic low.

For “other loans”, the record low for the over-30-day delinquency rate was reached in the fourth quarter of 2021, at 4.3%. In the second quarter, it rose to 5.2%.

In both categories, delinquency rates are increasing but remain below the Good-Times normal. Credit card delinquencies are growing faster and may soon reach good times normal and then bad times normal. A major jobs crisis, such as during the Great Recession, will lead to a sharp increase.

Note how pandemic stimulus payments of all kinds and the ability to skip rent and mortgage payments drove delinquency rates down through mid-2021. But that game is now over and there is a return to reality. This is a very similar trajectory to auto loan delinquency rates:

And the first increase in third-party collections.

The percentage of consumers with third-party collections rose to 6.3% in the second quarter, less than half of what it was in 2013 (14.6%). So far, so good:

The average amount collected per person has remained roughly stable at around $1,230 over the past three quarters, after declining during the stimulus period:

Bankruptcies

The number of consumers with new bankruptcy filings in the second quarter climbed a hair’s breadth to 95,200, but remains at a historic low, after the long downward trend that began in 2010 when bankruptcies peaked during the Great Recession. Also note that the number of people who filed for bankruptcy in the second quarter was less than half the number of filings in 2006, the low point just before the Great Recession.

When times are tough, credit card debt can be unavoidable if you learn how to manage credit or are forced to make risky financial decisions due to hardship.

For Lydia Senn and her husband, who are residents of Alabama, this was their reality during the Great Recession in 2008 after she lost her job and he took a pay cut. They relied on credit cards to get by and racked up about $14,000 in debt.

“We paid off our debt in 2014 and decided to live without a credit card until 2019,” says Senn, who documents his financial journey on his YouTube channel. “We don’t want to rack up high-interest debt, so we’re very strategic and intentional in how we use our credit card.”

Having a plan can help avoid debt or keep it manageable when money is tight. If your situation allows it, consider alternatives before you make credit card mistakes that make it hard to bounce back.

1. Don’t keep spending as usual

Modify your budget if inflation or other circumstances compromise it. With today’s inflation, Senn has adjusted his budget to include rising gas, internet and cellphone charges on his credit card.

“Look at the budget and carefully consider those needs versus wants,” says Katie Bossler, quality assurance specialist at GreenPath, a nonprofit credit counseling agency.

Senn’s grocery bill has gone from $125 a week for a family of six to $225. Lowering that bill is not an option since her husband has lupus and requires an autoimmune protocol diet. “It’s the difference between him thriving and being in pain everyday,” Senn says.

To balance rising costs, it cut spending in other areas and opted for alternatives. Weekly family get-togethers at the local cafe have moved to its terrace. The family now dines out and travels less, and the kids attend a less expensive arts camp.

When reviewing your credit card statement, consider deleting unnecessary purchases or unused subscriptions. Prioritize essentials like rent, utilities, food, and expenses that help generate income. If you’re still financially strained after making changes, consider other options like full-time or part-time work, or finding roommates, Bossler says.

2. Avoid relying on your credit limit

Shrinking your budget can provide savings opportunities that keep you from relying on credit cards. Save what you can, even just $5 a week. An emergency fund is foolproof, but a credit limit may eventually reach its maximum or be reduced at the issuer’s discretion.

Before that happens, request a higher credit limit from issuers when accounts are in good standing. This way, you have credit available as a last resort that supplements an emergency fund. Note that a transmitter can execute a “difficult investigationon your credit after making this request, an action that can temporarily lower credit scores.

3. Don’t carry a balance on a high-interest credit card

Having a large balance on a high-interest credit card makes purchases more expensive. For credit card accounts rated for interest in 2021, the average rate was 16.45%, according to Federal Reserve data. Some credit card interest rates are even higher at 29.99%.

While a card’s interest rate depends on economic factors and your credit, some cards or institutions offer lower rates that can save you money on outstanding balances. For example, the national average rate on credit cards at credit unions was 11.21% in March 2022, according to data from the National Credit Union Administration.

If you need a debt repayment strategy, a good credit score (a FICO score of 690 or higher) may qualify you for a credit card balance transfer which allows you to transfer a high-interest balance to a new card at a lower rate. Weigh the cost of balance transfer fees and ongoing interest charges to identify the best option. The ideal balance transfer card has no annual fee, a low balance transfer fee of 3% or less, and a long enough introductory APR period of 0% to progress on debt.

4. Stop accumulating late fees

If you anticipate a late payment, promptly contact your credit card issuer. Late fees can cost up to $30 the first time and up to $41 after, according to a 2022 press release from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Some issuers may be able to change your due date, offer financial hardship programs, or refer you to a nonprofit credit counseling agency that provides a debt management plan, according to Bossler. These programs may waive fees or reduce interest rates for a certain period of time.

5. Think twice about cash advances

A credit card cash advance conveniently provides a short-term cash loan at a bank or ATM, but it’s expensive. Interest on the amount of money borrowed begins to accrue immediately and fees may apply.

Instead, consider a personal loan or targeted offers from issuers that turn available credit on a credit card into a less expensive installment loan that puts money in your bank account. For this last option, no loan application or credit check is required.

Running out of money can be difficult. When your bank account is nearly empty, you might find yourself scrambling for quick cash. It is possible to use a credit card to transfer money to a bank account using a cash advance or balance transfer check, but we cannot recommend this.

Cash advances are risky due to high interest rates and expensive one-time fees. Balance transfers can lead to increased debt if not handled properly. Before rushing to request a cash advance or balance transfer check from a card issuer, consider other methods such as using savings or taking out a small personal loan.

How do cash advances and balance transfer checks work?

Cash advances allow cardholders to access cash in their revolving credit account. Typically, cash advances are made using a credit card much like a debit card at an ATM. Cash advances typically use an assigned PIN, like with a debit card. The amount withdrawn cannot exceed the current available balance on the credit card. Cash advance limits are often well below a card’s total credit limit, so be aware of your cash advance limit if you choose to go this route.

Balance transfers are sometimes used to transfer the balance from a high interest credit card to a new credit card with low or no interest. Promotional introductory periods of 0% APR are common with new credit cards, allowing cardholders a brief respite from the interest that accrues on a balance. But cardholders can also request a balance transfer check from a card issuer and cash it to get cash fast. Some banks, like Chase and Citi, allow cardholders to transfer a balance online to an eligible checking account.

Cash advances and balance transfer checks can be expensive. Card issuers typically charge a fee for each cash advance or balance transfer. The fee can be a small percentage of the transaction or a dollar amount, usually between 3% and 5% of the transferred amount.

The interest you will pay on this cash advance will vary depending on the issuer. Cash advance APRs are often higher than standard purchase or balance transfer APRs. Unlike purchases with a grace period, interest generally begins to accrue the same day as the cash advance.

Cash advances and balance transfers are generally not eligible for credit card rewards such as cash back or travel points. They can be useful in a financial emergency, but consider other options first due to the risk of quickly running into quickly accumulating debt.

How to transfer money from a credit card to a bank account

Use a cash advance

Some card issuers allow cardholders to transfer money from a cash advance directly to a checking account. If permitted, cardholders can usually initiate or request this transaction through the card’s online account.

Cardholders can deposit cash advance money into a bank account in several ways:

  • Use an ATM. Cardholders can withdraw cash from an ATM using a credit card. Contact the number on the back of the card if you are unsure of the PIN code. Cardholders can then deposit the money into an account at a local bank branch or using an ATM that accepts deposits.
  • Go to a bank branch. If you have a bank-issued credit card, visit a local bank branch to withdraw funds. Ask the cashier to deposit the money into your checking or savings account.
  • Order a check. Some card issuers will mail a check for the desired withdrawal amount. Check holders can either deposit the check in a bank account or use it as a personal check to pay something in person.

Use a balance transfer check

First contact your card issuer online or by calling the number on the back of the card to see if the company offers balance transfer checks. There may be transfer limits or eligibility requirements that each cardholder must meet before receiving approval for a balance transfer.

Balance transfer checks can be used to pay for things at a store or cashed at a local bank branch for deposit or withdrawal. If your card issuer is a bank, ask the representative if the balance transfer can be deposited directly into a checking account. This would help eliminate extra steps like waiting for the check to be delivered and physically cashing it at a local branch or sending it back to your bank.

Is it a good idea to use a cash advance or a balance transfer?

Cash advances should only be used in an emergency, after all other reasonable options have been exhausted. Cardholders should first consider asking for an income advance, dipping into savings accounts, taking out small personal loans at reasonable rates, or asking friends or family to borrow the money.

Cash advances may seem like a quick and easy way to get cash quickly, but transactions usually have negative long-term consequences. Cash advance interest rates are sometimes higher than credit card purchase APRs. Interest begins to accrue on the day the cash advance is made. This can lead to massive and rapidly accumulating credit card debt if the cardholder is unable to repay the cash advance as quickly as possible. Cash advance fees also apply to major additional costs.

Balance transfers are also quite expensive, especially if the transfer amount is large. Regardless of the amount transferred, it should always be repaid by the cardholder as soon as possible. Interest may accrue on the date the balance transfer is made, which carries the same risk as a cash advance. Even though the upfront fee is lower, don’t be fooled by other fine print that applies to balance transfers.

As interest accrues and debt increases, there is a risk that overall credit utilization will increase at a rate that could lower credit ratings. Experts recommend keeping your credit utilization rate below 30%.

Conclusion

Cash advances and balance transfer checks are two ways to transfer money from a credit card to a bank account, but should only be used as a last resort. Of the two, a balance transfer check, especially if it has a promotional 0% APR rate, is a much better option. Cardholders in financial difficulty should first weigh other options, such as taking out a small personal loan or asking friends or family to borrow money.

Many traditional short-term loans offer quick cash in exchange for extremely high interest rates and fees. As an alternative, some people turn to a personal loan.

Personal loans are generally repayable in equal monthly installments over a long period. You also have the option of prepaying the loan to free up income in your spending plan and potentially save on interest. However, it could be a costly decision if the lender charges a prepayment penalty.

What to do when you want a short term loan

Many consumers are turning to personal loans over other forms of financing because they come with more competitive interest rates and loan terms of between one and seven years. The longer the loan term, the more affordable the monthly payment, keeping you on track and preserving your credit rating.

However, the short-term cost savings also mean you’ll spend more on interest over time. For example, if you get a $5,000 loan for 3 years with an interest rate of 9%, you will pay $159 per month and $5,723.95 over the life of the loan. But if you accept a 2-year term, your monthly payment will increase to $228, but you will only pay $5,482.17 for the term of the loan.

If you prefer to save on interest, you can opt for a shorter term personal loan. Or you can take out a longer-term loan to get a lower monthly payment that doesn’t drain your budget too much and pay it off sooner. However, it is essential that you choose a lender who allows you to repay the loan before the expiry of the term without incurring any penalty.

Online personal lenders with no prepayment penalties

If you’re looking for a short-term loan, it’s best to only consider lenders who don’t penalize borrowers for wanting to repay before the end of the loan term. Otherwise, you will have to pay a fee to close the loan within the time frame you prefer. Fortunately, many lenders do not charge a fee for prepaying your loan.

Lender Amount of the loan Terms APR range
happy money $5,000 – $40,000 2 to 5 years 5.99% – 24.99%
LightStream $5,000 – $100,000 2 to 7 years old 3.99% – 19.99% (with automatic payment)
SoFi $5,000 – $100,000 2 to 7 years old 6.99% – 22.23% (with automatic payment)
Reached $1,000 – $50,000 3 to 5 years 5.40% – 35.99%

happy money

Happy Money puts customers first with its innovative approach to lending. Its personal loans are ideal for consumers looking to consolidate high-interest debt to save money, and borrowers also get exclusive access to a variety of tools to help them manage their finances more efficiently.

While their funding times are a bit slower than you’ll find with other online lenders, the minimum credit score requirement is lower. And if you have impeccable credit, you could qualify for a loan with an attractive interest rate.

There are no prepayment penalties or late payment fees, but an origination fee of up to 5% may apply.

LightStream

LightStream offers some of the lowest interest rates on personal loans. Although you need a good or excellent credit score and a long credit history to qualify, you may qualify for a flexible loan that doesn’t come with spending restrictions.

If you can find a comparable loan product elsewhere with a better rate, LightStream will offer you a 0.1 percentage point lower rate. Also, keep in mind that shorter loan terms usually come with lower interest rates, which means it’s in your best financial interest to opt for a shorter repayment period.

Same day financing is available and there are no prepayment penalties or other fees.

SoFi

If you have a credit score of at least 680, you may qualify for a personal loan with SoFi even with minimal credit history. Another important benefit of doing business with the online lender is the free access you will receive to financial advisors, career coaches, and other virtual experiences and events designed to help you improve your finances.

This online lender offers a seamless application experience, and you won’t pay any application, set-up, late payment, or prepayment fees. SoFi also allows joint applications if you are unable to qualify for a personal loan on your own.

Reached

Upstart is worth considering as it also offers competitive interest rates and quick financing options. Additionally, the lender looks beyond your credit score and examines your education and work history to determine if you are a good candidate for a personal loan.

If financing is approved, you will not pay a prepayment penalty if you repay the loan early. Yet, Upstart charges setup fees of up to 8%, as well as late payment and return payment fees. You will also pay a fee if you choose to receive paper statements by mail.

Personal loan alternatives for a short term loan

A short-term personal loan isn’t the only option to get the funds you need. Here are some alternatives:

  • Credit card: If you have a credit card with available credit, you can use it to meet your short-term financial needs. Be sure to repay what you spend before the due date to avoid accruing interest on those purchases. Or you can apply for a credit card that offers zero percent APR on purchases for a limited time and pay it off before the promotional period ends.
  • Car title loan: You can borrow up to 50% of the market value of your car (if you own it) with a car title loan. Perfect credit isn’t necessary, but here’s the catch: you can expect to pay high interest and your car is used as collateral. So this loan product can stretch your budget too much and you could lose your vehicle if you fall behind on your payments.
  • Payday loan: These loan products are aimed at consumers with poor credit and should only be used as a last resort as they come with a high APRS, sometimes as high as 600%. When you apply, the lender will ask for your pay stub and banking information to ensure that you are employed and know where to withdraw the funds from at the time of collection. Most loans are no more than $500 and are due the day of your next payday.

At the end of the line

A personal loan can help you overcome a short-term financial difficulty or cover a major expense. When researching your options, confirm that the lender does not charge prepayment penalties. Even if you get a long repayment period with a higher interest rate, your payment will be more affordable and you’ll have the option to pay off the balance in full sooner to save on interest.

If a personal loan isn’t right for you, other options are available. Be sure to consider the pros and cons of each to make an informed and smart financial decision.

Skyrocketing inflation is forcing more and more Russians to take out expensive short-term loans to last until the end of the month when they get their paycheck.

Russians took out more consumer loans just to cover daily expenses in May this year than during the coronavirus crisis. Short-term loans for “emergency purposes” to cover a monthly shortfall accounted for 10% of all personal loans taken out in May, compared to 6% in the same month a year earlier, reports the Central Bank of Russia (CBR). . The number of applications for these loans also increased by 1 pp from April to May and by 2.5% year on year, Kommersant reports.

In addition, the average loan size has also increased. Experts believe it’s because banks have clamped down on the number of loans they issue and are imposing stricter rating criteria in a bid to contain the growth of non-performing loans (NPLs) as Russia heads towards recession, due to the extreme sanctions imposed. by the West after Russia invaded Ukraine in February.

“In May 2022, 2.38 million payday loans of up to RUB 30,000 ($563) for up to 30 days were issued for a total of RUB 21.59 billion. This is the highest volume since December of last year, and is 16% higher than the previous year. According to the Central Bank, in January-March throughout Russia microloans were issued [worth] 175 billion rubles,” the National Bureau of Credit History said.

Soaring inflation is at the root of the problem, which is eating away at incomes faster than companies can raise wages. Inflation is at multi-year highs even after falling from 17.8% in April to 17.1% in May.

And the pressure is unlikely to let up any time soon, even after the CBR’s emergency interest rate hike to 20% just after Russian forces crossed the Ukrainian border, which appears to have effectively contained inflation. As price growth pressures ease, CBR cut rates to pre-war level of 9.5%, but inflation remains in double digits, disproportionately hurting the poorest .

CBR currently forecasts average inflation this year in the range of 14%-17% and 5%-7% next year, while the prime interest rate is expected to fall back towards 4% in 2024, says CBR , but that doesn’t mean helping low-income families in the meantime, because high inflation reduces real incomes.

Less than a quarter (23%) of Russian borrowers are confident they will be able to repay loans they have already taken out, according to a newly released survey by Kept (formerly KPMG) conducted in April-May, while three-quarters of Russians anticipate problems in meeting debt payment obligations. The survey covered not only individual bank customers, but also small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This uncertainty is caused by the fear of losing jobs. Unemployment has not risen from the current figure near post-Soviet lows of just over 4%, despite an expected economic contraction of 8% to 15% this year, but regional authorities are already signaling early signs growing tension in labor markets. At the height of the coronavirus (COVID-19), pandemic unemployment exceeded 8% and is expected to rise to those levels in the coming year. In anticipation, the vast majority (93%) of Kept respondents plan to cut costs in anticipation of tougher times ahead.

Borrower anxiety has yet to show up in banking statistics, although the CBR stopped reporting some key variables like NPLs and industry earnings in April.

As of April 1, loans overdue by 90 days or more (the definition of NPL) exceeded 1 trillion rubles, but as a percentage this is only 4.1% of banks’ portfolio and less than last September ( 4.3%), reports Kommersant. Sberbank told the publication that the share of loans overdue by a day or more is only 1.5% and that “no problems” are visible with regard to corporate clients.

However, banks and the government are already taking action: banks can restructure problem loans and the CBR said in its last May banking update that the government has used money from the National Welfare Fund (NWF) to recapitalize important companies. The problems were mitigated by credit vacancies and restructurings, without which bad debts in April-May could have increased by 15%, Kommersant cites experts who estimate that one in seven borrowers have lost the ability to repay their debt. Independent expert Andrei Barkhota said Kommersant that bad debts could increase by 25 to 30% by the end of the year.

The state is already planning to step in to cushion the blow with a 4 trillion ruble ($67.8 billion) welfare package to cushion the economic blow of war in Ukraine. The Ministry of Finance announced a 10% increase in pensions in early June, the Bank of Finland’s Institute for Emerging Economies (BOFIT) said in its June 10 weekly update. As Russians still retire relatively young, families with a pensioner, who usually also have a part-time job, tend to be among the safest. Most Russians see a pension not as a retirement plan, but as a supplement that pays for a better standard of living in the second half of their life.

“The previous 8.6% increase in pensions was scheduled for the start of this year. The increases are intended to compensate retirees for rising consumer prices. As for the increase now made, it represents compensation for the sharp rise in prices that followed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” reports BOFIT.

The government’s spending plan aims to boost wages and social benefits for millions to mitigate the economic fallout from the country’s invasion of Ukraine. A bill signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin on June 21 will also increase Russia’s minimum wage and living wage, by around 10%, according daily business Vedomosti. Under the new measures, families with children under the age of three will also increase. There will also be more financial support for low-income families with children up to age 17. The proposal was presented by President Vladimir Putin last week at a televised meeting of the Russian Council of State, where he stressed that the main task of the Kremlin would be to ensure that the minimum wage remains above of the “minimum subsistence”.

Payday lenders offer small, short-term loans to borrowers who need cash fast. Usually, you won’t have to submit to a credit check to obtain funds, and your payment will be due in two to four weeks.

But many borrowers are unable to repay their payday loans in a single two to four week period. This can make already expensive debt even more expensive, especially if you have multiple payday loans. To get out of the payday loan cycle, consumers can consider a payday loan consolidation.

What is Payday Loan Consolidation?

When you consolidate payday loans, you combine multiple loans so that you can make one payment on your debt, instead of many.

“I would define a payday loan consolidation as any method that allows you to escape the payday loan cycle,” says Omari Hall, learning experience designer at GreenPath Financial Wellness. The payday loan cycle, says Hall, is the experience of being forced to repay the full amount you borrowed in a short period of time with high interest.

You can consolidate payday loans by taking out a consolidation loan or using a debt management or debt settlement program, says Anissa Schultz, director of debt management at the Credit Advisors Foundation.

What is the best way to pursue payday loan consolidation?

The appropriate choice depends on your situation, but you have options.

Debt consolidation loans

“This usually involves a credit check, which limits the availability of people with severely compromised credit, but it’s probably the best option,” says Martin Lynch, director of education at Cambridge Credit Counseling and chairman of the Financial Advisory Association of America. “I know replacing one loan with another doesn’t seem appealing at first glance, but if you can get a much better interest rate and only a moderately extended term, then you’re better off.”

Consolidation loans usually show up on your credit report, unlike payday loans. Paying off a consolidation loan on time and in full can improve your credit score in the long run, Lynch says.

However, there can be risks in taking out a new loan. For the rare payday loan borrower with a decent credit score, a consolidation loan is a good way to stop high interest rates, Schultz says. But borrowers who start to default on consolidation loans might find themselves returning to payday loan companies for funds to repay their consolidation loans. “Borrowing is not a good way to get out of debt,” Schultz says.

Debt management plans

Working with a credit counselor as part of a debt management program or getting a bank loan can be a good place to start, depending on your situation, Hall says, though he notes that payday loan borrowers may struggle to qualify for traditional loans.

“In many cases, people who find themselves in these payday loan cycles often don’t have super great credit, so a traditional bank loan would be available to them,” Hall said. At the same time, banks may not offer loans for low balances, such as $1,000.

Instead, consumers can consider debt management. This process involves a financial advisor who will work to reach an agreement with your creditors, according to the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. Your credit report will include a note indicating your participation in a debt management plan, although the NFCC says this won’t hurt your credit score, and completing a DMP should help your credit score in the long run.

A DMP could prevent additional charges from piling up on your debt, among other benefits. You may pay a monthly maintenance fee to participate in the debt management program, but that amount will pay off, especially for consumers accustomed to paying high interest rates, Hall says.

Debt settlement

A debt settlement company may try to come to an agreement with your creditors that you pay less than you owe. But debt settlement is not right for everyone, and you need to be aware of the risks.

Settling a batch of payday loans signals to lenders that they’ll only get some of their money back if they lend to you, Lynch says. “That’s why the settlement is really a credit killer in that it alerts lenders to the thought that we may only get some of our money back. That’s a terrible signal to send.” Other negatives include “extraordinarily high” settlement fees and a chance of being sued, Lynch says.

What are the pros and cons of payday loan consolidation?

This section will focus on debt consolidation loans and DMPs. Keep in mind that the pros and cons may vary depending on your situation and how you go about consolidating your payday loans.

Advantages of consolidation loans:

  • Lower interest rates. Payday loans can have annual percentage rates of 400% or more, while traditional bank loans or online lenders can offer much lower rates.
  • Different loan structure. A consolidation loan is an installment loan, so borrowers don’t get “sucked into this vicious circle of, ‘Oh, I’m only paying part of the interest, and you’re going to apply my principle’, and then it just keeps going roll out of control and it looks like they’ll never be able to get out of it,” Schultz says.
  • Longer terms. A consolidation loan can give you more time to pay off your debt than the two to four weeks you have with a payday loan.

Disadvantages of debt consolidation loans:

  • You may not qualify. Consumers may not meet lenders’ requirements for income, credit score and other factors. You may also not be looking to borrow enough money to qualify, depending on a lender’s minimum loan amount.
  • Usually requires a credit check. When you apply for a consolidation loan, the creditor will usually do a thorough investigation of your credit report, which can lower your score. “Because they’re looking to expand their finances, they’re going to do a thorough investigation, and that’s going to lower their credit score,” Schultz said.

  • Can block accounts from going to collections. Using a debt management program can help borrowers avoid hearing from debt collectors.
  • Can offer borrowers better loan terms. Lenders may agree to reduce borrowers’ monthly payments and stop adding fees to the balance, for example.
  • Can help borrowers with other financial matters. Getting a DMP involves working with a nonprofit credit counselor, who can help you with other aspects of your financial life, not just your payday loans.

  • Lenders are not required to participate. Although most payday lenders participate, “payday loan companies are unfortunately not mandated to work with credit counseling organizations and their joint clients,” Schultz says.
  • Lenders are not required to make concessions. Credit counselors “can’t necessarily get benefits from payday lenders,” Lynch says, although payday lenders almost always receive payments.

What are the other options for getting out of payday loan debt?

Consolidation loans and DMPs aren’t the only ways to get out of payday loan debt. Borrowers might also consider options such as:

  • No Fee Extended Payment Plans. More than half of the states that allow payday loans also require lenders to offer extended payment plans at no cost, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. These plans vary by state, but they allow borrowers to extend the term of their loan without paying additional fees.
  • Credit card. The average APR for credit cards in the US News database is 15.56% to 22.87%, so paying off payday loan debt with a credit card will also provide a rate of lower interest. If you can get one, a 0% APR credit card lets you pay off your balance interest-free for an introductory period.

Consumers struggling with payday loan debt are not alone. “Falling into this cycle of debt isn’t something you should necessarily be ashamed of,” Hall says, noting that in some communities there aren’t many other options. “A lot of my work is focused on the black and brown community, the inner city inner city community, and it’s a fact that these payday loan companies are much more prevalent in those communities than they would be. in other more established or more supported communities.”

And there are options for getting out of debt. “This is not a situation where there are no options or no (means) to escape,” Hall said.

A credit check can sometimes be applied to some payday loans as well. A credit check is generally not required for many payday loans, but may be requested if the loan is over $10,000. Some lenders require applicants to have a driving record. However, others do not.
