Sometimes, you can have your money in an hour or at least by the next working day.
This type of loan is a same-day loan. They’re used for several different kinds of financial emergencies. Maybe your car breaks down or your boiler stops working or there’s a roof leak.

This temporary funding can help get you to the next paycheck.

Funding Zest’s Online Loan Application is Simple and Quick
All you have to do is:
- Tell us the amount you want to borrow
- Input how many months you want to have that money for
- Supply your full accurate name
- Give your date of birth
- Supply your job status
- Type in how much you make each month
- Add your contact details so the lenders we pair you with can reach you (i.e. phone number and email address)
These are pretty basic bits of information but so important. You may be asked to give other information. This depends on the lender and what type of loan you’re going for. If you want to keep the loan process moving along, stay by your phone.
Things NOT to Do
Never ask for a loan for someone else Especially do not use any of your details. This will get flagged as well. Don’t use someone else’s name and then give your cell number and email address. That usually will be flagged and kicked out.
Apply During Regular Working Hours
When you’re going for your loan, do it during regular office hours Monday to Friday – 9-5. Applying outside office hours can slow you down. Sometimes lenders need follow-up information. When you’re not available to answer their questions, your loan can be in a holding pattern until the next day. Avoid applying on weekends and holidays for that very same reason.
Some lenders only give funding during working hours. And if something needs to be signed off by someone who is senior they most likely won’t be around out of hours.
How Much Do You Really Need to Borrow?
Really think about the money you actually need. It’s not a good idea to borrow more than you need. If you do then you’re accruing more interest and greater debt that may be harder to pay back.
You also want to make sure that you can afford what you’re borrowing so keeping the amount down makes a lot of sense. If you only need to repair your roof and you’ve gotten a quote, and it’s ‘X’ amount of money, borrow only that much. It will make it easier to get back on top of your financial situation with your next paycheck.
Here’s another way to look at it. If you borrow more than you can afford to pay back, you can end up with worse financial problems pretty quickly. Interest will keep piling up if you miss repayments. And, if you miss repayments, you may get extra fees. All of this can negatively impact your credit score.
Lenders know their business. Plus, they have your financial details. That means they will only lend the amount that they feel you can afford to pay back. That’s another reason it’s important to ask for the amount that you only truly need. This will keep the process moving along more quickly as well.
Credit Scores Do Matter
It helps a lot to have a good or fair credit score. Those will improve your chances of approval. It shows lenders that you are a good risk for a loan. It shows that you have a good financial history. You’ve borrowed before and paid back on time. Lenders love that.
A poor credit score gets a lender concerned. They worry that you won’t be able to pay back the loan. Bad credit scores can be a big roadblock for some loans. Plus it’s less desirable than a good one. Having said that, there are still options to borrow with bad credit.
Secured Loans for Bad Credit
Our lenders know that it can be challenging to have a good credit score with current situations and emergencies popping up. So, our lenders will look at all types of scores and histories and suggest alternate loans for bad credit.
The options for borrowing with bad credit include:
- secured loans
- working with a credit union
- taking out a Title Loan
An unsecured loan, if approved, is quicker. Secured loans take time. With a secured loan you are putting up collateral – like your car or your home. These need to be verified that you own them, that they’re worth what you think they are, and that’s enough to cover the loan amount you’re applying for.
When you’re going for an unsecured loan, other factors come into play. These are how much you make, how old you are, whether you rent or own your home, and your credit score. Those are the eligibility requirements that help you get an unsecured loan quickly and often the same day.
Use an Online Lending Platform like Funding Zest
Instead of applying at a store, apply online. When you work with an online platform like Funding Zest it’s quick and simple. In five minutes, you can have an answer.
Funding Zest automatically sends out your application to multiple lenders at once so it all happens quite fast.
If you went to a payday loan store (and some states have lots and lots of them) you stand in line and you wait to get your answer back. You could be turned down. Then you’d have to go to another store.
But when you apply on our online platform, the process is streamlined and approval can come through instantly with money in your bank on the same day.
Does it Cost to Apply?
No, Funding Zest does not charge a fee when you apply for a same day loan.
Stay By The Phone After Applying For Your Same-Day Loan
Once you’ve sent in your request using our online application platform, make yourself available. You want to be available for any questions that may come up after your application and you’ve electronically signed your agreement. Often, a lender might need to clarify something. Or even if you did your best to input all information without errors, if something is typed in wrong, lenders need to make sure they have the details right.
If you’re not available or miss their request for further information your same-day application process can be pushed back till the next day or worse.
Ask for a Smaller Loan
Applying for a smaller amount or an unsecured loan can help speed up the process. If the amount that you’re looking to borrow is as small as say $200 to $300 the application process is more likely to be automated by any given lender. If you meet their criteria, your loan can be funded almost immediately.
If the amount you’re looking to borrow is more like $1000 up to $5000, the lender is taking more risk upfront. In this case, they might request more information (i.e. proof of income, copies of your bank statements, etc.). This takes more time to send in further information. It can all be done on the same day if you stay available for further requests.
It’s important to have this information available as you apply. So when it’s necessary, if someone requests a document, you can send it off right away.
