WHAT DOES APR MEAN?

All personal loans have APRs associated with them. APR, also known as Annual Percentage Rate, directly influences how much you are going to pay in costs for your loan. Understanding how APR is computed can be difficult. Below, we outline what APR is and how it effects any loan product.

APR is divided into two categories: nominal APR and effective APR. The fee plus compound interest rate calculated for a year is called effective APR, also known as EAR. The effective APR is the more practical of the two. How EAR is computed is also going to depend on the start-up costs or fees of the loans. If these costs are rolled into the loan, then the balance will clearly accumulate additional interest. Auto loans are the most common type of loans when lenders will roll all loan costs (i.e. tax and registration, title and registration) into the final loan total. Applicants that pay all of these loan origination fees upfront will save money, particularly those that can only achieve approval for loans with higher interest rates.

By law, lenders must disclose the APR prior to finalization of any loan. This also includes payday loan lenders. It is important to for you to calculate what the final cost of the loan is going to be...especially if you intend on utilizing a payday loan for any extended period of time. Payday loan interest rates are very high. However, payday loans are often the only loan type people with horrible credit can get approved for. If used correctly, payday loans are an excellent source of financing for times of emergency. Learn more about emergency loans.
