How does Cash Lion get me a loan?

Before you apply for a loan with any website you probably have a few questions you would like answered. It is worth knowing that there is a very good chance we have at least one lender that will consider your application. We work with a huge panel of UK loan lenders - and by completing just one application form you gain access to all of these lenders.

If you work (employed or self employed) and earn over £500 per month or more, you are aged 18 years old or older and you live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland then it is worthwhile apply for a short term loan with us at Cash Lion.

When you have completed the application form, and have clicked apply, we then start to search and compare our payday loan lenders to find a loan for you. It is important to be patient and wait for the screen to change to either a lender or broker that has provisionally approved your application OR we will tell you that unfortunately we have not been able to match a loan for you but may have some other options for you to consider.

What should I do if I receive a text or e-mail?

You may be applying with us on a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone - and we all know technology is often not perfect! If for any reason you are not sent to a lender or broker website OR another message from us then you may have experienced a loss of signal on your mobile device or another technical glitch could have occured. Fear not - if you have been provisonally approved then the lender / broker may have sent you a text loan message and / or sent you an e-mail. So, ensure you check your phone and inbox and follow instructions.

What next?

Follow on screen instructions from the lender or broker we direct you to - if you have any questions then contact them direct.
