Learn: Where can I get a payday loan?
Be mindful, just like when you complete a loan application in-person, loan amounts, interest rates, and lengths can vary from lender to lender.
The best part of an online payday loan application is that it usually only takes a few minutes to get done. For most lenders, you'll need to upload and submit from your laptop or mobile phone:
- A valid government-issued ID (like a driver's license)
- Proof of income (pay stubs, bank statements, etc)
- Your social security number
- An account where you can receive your loan (such as a checking account)
Most online lenders will also ask for your email address, phone number, and home address so they have a way to contact you with updates on your application and loan.
If you qualify for a payday loan online, you'll be sent a loan offer with its terms and conditions — and usually after just a few minutes! You can sign this loan electronically, but make sure you know what you're getting into.
You should only sign a payday loan agreement if you're confident you can pay it off by your next payday. A lot of payday loans come with super-high fees, which can make them harder to pay off than you'd expect.

Once you sign the loan offer, your money will get sent to the account you provided as part of your application. Most people will get their loan 💵 within a few hours — and all without leaving the house.
