    How does work? is not a lender and does not make credit decisions. Green Dollar Loans is a loan connecting service. We connect consumers who are looking for financial assistance with independent, third party lenders who may be able to provide a loan.

    You begin by filling out the simple form. Your information is then shared with third party lenders who may make you a loan offer. You are under no obligation to accept the offer, but if you do, the lender will provide the instructions to do so. Every third party lender has their own terms and conditions. Please consult these before accepting the loan offer. In particular, check for information on the APR, fees, renewal terms and consequences of non-payment.

    If you have any questions about your loan, please contact your lender.

    Payday loans are usually between $100 and $1,000. Installment loans range between $100 and $5,000 and Personal loans are usually between $500 and $35,000. You will make a request for a loan amount. If you receive a loan offer, it may not match the amount you requested. Loan offers may vary for several reasons including the individual lender, employment, income and other factors.

    If approved for a payday loan by an independent third party lender, how quickly could I receive it?

    The transfer to your bank account could happen as early as today or next business day. Times will vary depending upon your lender and your financial institution. If you have additional questions regarding the transfer time, please contact your third party lender.

    What are the minimum requirements to register for a loan?

    Individual, third party lenders have different minimum requirements, but the following constitute typical minimum requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years of age or older
  • Have a checking or savings account with direct deposit
  • Have regular income of at least $1,000 per month
  • Have a fair credit rating (for personal loans only)
  • Must Not be a regular or reserve member of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, or Navy (or a dependent thereof), serving on active duty under a call or order that does not specify a period of 30 days or less
  • Is it possible to get a Payday Loan without a Job?

    We understand that not everyone who applies for a loan is someone that is currently employed. If you do not have a place of work, you will be assessed based on your affordability, as lenders would need to determine if you are able to pay back the applied borrowed money. You will need to provide some proof of income, such as self-employed income, government assistance, retirement funds, pensions, regular finances covered by a partner, etc. Payday lenders are all different, but if you frequently receive a source of income, you will still most likely get approved.

    What information do I have to share in order to register with

This information includes, but is not limited to your name, address, telephone number, place of employment and/or source of regular income, driver’s license number, bank account information and social security number.

    From the time you register with (and are made an offer by an independent, third party lender) the process can be as fast as one business day. A number of factors impact this, including the time of day you register, the accuracy of your registration, the lender and your financial institution.

    How long does it take to receive?

    Since Green Dollar Loans is accessible around the clock, decisions usually only take a couple of minutes and are then processed as soon as possible, taking no longer than a few hours. Our team promptly assesses your request using analytic tools to search for the best lender that we can negotiate the best deal with based on your current financial situation.

    After this, you will have to make a decision based on the loan agreement that has been written up after contacting you. This process will continue as follows until you find an appropriate option with terms and conditions that you agree with.

    The procedure for getting a payday loan usually has a quick turnaround time; transfers can be done within the same day during normal business hours. However, the actual time interval is reliant on you, the lender, and your bank, so, therefore, processing delays may occur.

    Can I still get a Loan even with Bad Credit?

    Customers may worry about not passing the verification process to acquire financial assistance through payday loans as they have a low credit rating or have a dubious reputation. Others might not even have a credit history at all. Green Dollar Loans recognizes that individuals may be borrowing this money because of a difficult circumstance.

    Therefore, there is no need to fret as part of our job is to negotiate with lenders to give everyone the opportunity to get the help that they need. The best part is since this is an unsecured loan, there is no need to prove you have any assets either just to get an approval.

    In any case, a FICO credit score is not something that lenders generally check. It is possible, though, that if it is something a particular lender looks into, the loan amount may be reduced, or fees will perhaps be increased if there have been spots in your credit history.

    Can I take multiple credits at the same time?

    This is contingent upon the information regarding the number of credit products you can attain at any one particular time based on your loan agreement. There will also be details about a cooling-off period for the interval in which you can take on another credit, so make sure to check out the terms carefully and discuss it with your lender before signing.

    Lenders procure the right to dictate and set the terms and limits in the loan agreement for every individual borrower. The number of credits you get can also be directly affected due to state laws, which may not allow you to take more than one at a time.

    Is there a limit to the amount I can borrow?

    Normally, most people in the USA borrow an average of $375, and a lot of our clients do apply for an amount around that range. We do our utmost to provide the best ceiling price that can be presented to our customers as long as we are assured of being paid back.

    The more successful transactions you have, the better your chances of getting a hold of a larger amount. We will also offer and consult installment plans with you if you need a higher amount on the get-go as to not risk the chances of not getting repaid in a timely manner.

    When must I repay my loan? is not a lender. Each independent, third party lender has their own terms and conditions, including those concerning repayment. You should contact your lender for information about the date and time for repayment as specified in your loan agreement.

    Will independent, third party lenders perform a credit check and what are the credit implications?

    Many will do so. They may check to verify the accuracy of the information you have provided and/or to review your information to see how it compares to the records of national databases. Lenders may verify your social security number, driver’s license number, banking information or any other information you provided.

    Multiple inquiries to the “Big 3” credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax and Transunion) may result in a lowering of your credit score. Therefore you may want to register for a loan, one at a time.

    Will my loan be automatically renewed?

    The answer to this question depends upon the state you live in and the lender. Each lender has its own renewal policies, as well as each state having their own laws regarding automatic renewal of payday loans. Be sure to ask your lender if your loan will automatically renew or if they have to receive your permission first.

    Loan renewal will likely result in the addition of fees and interest to your loan balance. Make yourself aware of these fees before agreeing to any loan renewal.

    Can my Payday Loan be renewed?

    Although this is not recommended, it is possible as every now and then we are put in a position where we cannot repay a loan and will have to renew it.

    Additional interest may be imposed in this scenario in order to extend the repayment period. It is always best to discuss renewal terms with your lender as this can incur expenses that may impact your financial status further. Verify the laws in your state as well as it may be forbidden.

    What are the implications of late payments and non-payment?

    This varies by lender, so check with your lender before agreeing to the loan offer. Many consumers get in trouble by not being aware of the penalties of late or non-payments. Be fully aware of the consequences of not paying the loan in full on the date it is due.
