Some of the lenders in our network participate in what is known as automatic loan renewal. Simply put, if your loan is beyond a specific amount of time past due, your lender will rollover your loan. This may be offered to you in addition to options like repaying your loan in full at a later date or repaying your debt in installments over time. The minimum term for an automatic renewal is 15 days and you will likely be required to pay renewal fees and additional interest charges.

You might be hesitant to submit your personal information online, but the reality is that even offline lenders may take your information and enter it into an online database. When using an online lender, choose one that has a reputable name. You can read reviews of the lender, look for complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau and look for news stories that mention the lender.
Some payday loan companies gather your personal information and then shop around for a lender. That means your information could go out to third parties as part of the lending process. Other companies will even sell contact information, leaving you dealing with sales calls and spam emails. LendUp protects customer information and will never sell it.
