What Are Cash Advances?

A cash advance is a type of short-term loan which helps you ‘get an advance’ on your pay cheque from work. It provides quick and easy access to funds when unexpected emergencies or expenses arise.

For example, those in need of emergency repairs or unexpected payments, would be the perfect candidate for a cash advance. That way, you can borrow money instantly in order to provide immediate payment, and then pay this back in the future with a reliable payment plan.

An advance on your salary can give you the money you need within a few hours, whether it is just $100, $500 or $1,000. You can then repay the loan in full on your next payday from work or spread repayment over 3,6 or 12 months if you would prefer.

Can You Get a Cash Advance with Bad Credit?

You could be eligible for a cash advance even with a bad credit score. Dollar Hand works with a range of different lenders who can also consider factors such as your age, employment status, income and the amount you wish to borrow.

When you make an enquiry with Dollar Hand about a cash advance, we match you with the lender most suited to your borrowing needs. Some lenders may offer bad credit borrowers slightly different conditions. For instance a maximum loan amount or loan period, or a higher interest rate due to the larger level of risk involved.

At Dollar Hand, we make sure that a poor credit rating does not stop you from getting the cash that you need. We understand that it is not always possible to have a perfect credit score and so we connect our borrowers with reputable lenders who can help them.

Can You Get a Cash Advance with No Credit Checks?

Most of our lenders carry out a credit check to determine your eligibility. This gives lender an indication of how well you have paid other forms of loans and credit in the past and this helps them assess how much to offer you and whether to even grant your loan at all.

However, whilst you might search specifically for no credit check cash advances, you do not need to worry about being declined due to a low credit score as we work with a number of partners who offer loans for bad credit.

In some cases, we may offer loans that do not require credit checks and instead use collateral such as cars or property to help you borrow money (e.g secured loans or title loans). Or they could offer alternative products such as those from a credit union or a credit card with a certain limit, to help you manage your spending more efficiently.
