Compare 3 Month Payday Loans

3 month payday loans are becoming increasingly popular that shifts away from the traditional monthly setup. Rather than pay a hefty lump sum in one go, these extended terms will stretch out the repayments that should help customers to keep on top of their finances. The usual route has always been to rollover a loan that would commonly attract a further interest charge. Per £100 this would commonly be £30 for each new month. These newer 3 month payday loans work out much cheaper than taking extensions. Wizz Cash and Zebit for example provide around a 15% monthly rate that is essentially chopping the 30% rollover in half. Oakam even cuts down the charge to 12.5%. In comparison, the 6 month lenders tend to charge 20% each month.
