  1. Nice post and real! Due to the fact that this is short term lending, these loans tend to carry higher interest rates compared to traditional loans. But as mentioned earlier, the internet can be a great place to find the best and most affordable deals. There is intense competition between online lenders and the best way for them to attract customers is to offer competitive rates.
