Tips To Remember Before Getting a Loan
Make sure that the minimal requirements are complied with.
Take note of the amount you borrowed as well as the deadline. Non-payment means your account will be blocked and you might not be able to borrow again until you are able to repay your loan.
Borrow only what you need. You don’t have to aim approval for the maximum amount if you will have a hard time paying for it.
What do you think of TendoPay? Sounds convenient, don’t you think?
Imagine this: your five-year old phone decided to give up on you and you badly need a new one. Or it’s your wedding anniversary in three days and you couldn’t leave your house because, well, responsibilities. What do you do?
Two words: online shopping.
Here’s the thing: shopping online doesn’t mean you are exempted from paying. In fact, you are required to pay before your order is processed – unless you opted for cash on delivery.
Thankfully, there’s a “buy now, pay later” scheme that allows you to shop online and pay in installment basis.
What is Buy Now, Pay Later scheme?
This payment scheme lets you delay payment from one to 24 months, depending on how much you spend, interest included.
You can borrow for as low as P2,000 up to a maximum of P50,000. Interest may be as low as 3.49 percent with approval as quick as one minute upon submission.
For instance, you can divide your P10,000 bill into three equal installments, thereby giving you more time to save and eventually pay for your bill. Still, take note that you will have to pay for the interest, which means your P10,000 worth of purchase will be increased by the end of the term.
Can You Avail Of This Scheme Online?
The good news is yes. In fact, many online installment companies partnered with Lazada (as of this writing) to allow you to pay for your purchases later. Plus, you don’t need to have a credit card or bank account to qualify for this scheme.
Having this financing option allows buyers to make purchases and be able to pay for it at the most convenient time. This will also allow you to stretch your money as you enjoy the items you bought.
Some of these companies that offer this scheme includes:
These companies will be discussed in detail in succeeding posts.
How Does It Work?
Availing of this scheme is easy. All you need to do are:
Apply first with your preferred Lazada loan provider. Details as to how will be discussed in detail in succeeding posts.
Once approved, you will receive your funds in your Lazada Wallet.
Start shopping in Lazada.
Use the funds as payment upon checkout. You might also have to pay for a certain amount depending on the approved loan.
Wait for your items to be delivered at your doorstep.
Tips To Remember Before You Use BNPL Scheme
Cash out as much as you can. This could reduce the amount to be paid, which means you get to pay lower interest, too.
Always pay the required amount on time. Otherwise, you might incur penalty fee, which you must avoid at all costs. Plus, this could affect your future application with installment companies.
Aim for a shorter installment term. In fact, the longer the term, the more you’ll pay.
Buy only what is necessary. In fact, having this scheme does not give you a license to buy whatever you like. Stick to what you need only so you won’t have a hard time paying for your purchases.
Having the BNPL scheme is a good payment alternative, especially for those who don’t have sufficient cash on hand but badly needs a specific item. Still, only use this option only when needed and not to fulfill capriciousness.
You might experience financial difficulty or short in cash at one point in your life. When that happens, who do you turn to for help when your family or friends have nothing to lend to you?
Your next solution: online cash loan.

Who comes to your mind when you hear about online cash loan? Surely, there are tons. After all, there are many cash loan providers available in the market, including Home Credit.
Despite the not-so-good Home Credit cash loan reviews, there are still many who turn to this lender in case of emergency or an upgrade. Apparently, every successful loan means you need to pay for it as well.
Here’s everything you need to know about paying your loan with Home Credit.
How And Where To Pay
This payment method is recommended because of its real-time posting. This means once you made a payment, it will be reflected in Home Credit system immediately. What you need to do is to fill out the Payment Transaction Form with the following details:
Biller Name: Home Credit
Date of Payment
Amount to be paid
Below are the establishments that have ECPay facility:
Marikina Shoe Exchange
Through Bayad Center
This is another alternative and recommended method because of real-time posting. All you need to do is to fill out the Payment Transaction Form with Home Credit as the biller.
You can find Bayad Center in the following areas:
Prime Asia Pawnshop
Aside from these payment channels, you can also pay your loan through:
MLhuillier, with additional P15.00 transaction fee
RCBC, either through bank deposit or online. If you opt for online payment, choose “HG Consumer Finance Philippines Inc.” as the biller. Unlike other authorized payment centers, RCBC does not charge transaction fee.
SM Malls with Home Credit as the Biller Company. Unfortunately, payment is not in real-time, which means it may take days before payment will reflect on Home Credit system. There is also a transaction fee amounting to P13.00
Now that you know how and where to pay, it’s time to familiarize yourself with Home Credit’s payment guidelines.
Take note of your Loan Account Number. You will use this when paying for your loan.
Only cash payment is allowed.
Make sure you pay at least three days before the due date. This way, there is enough time for your payment to reflect on the Home Credit system. Keep in mind that it takes 48 hours to process your payment, so the earlier you pay, the better.
Keep your payment receipt/s. This will serve as proof that payment was made in case someone from Home Credit will demand payment.
Always check My Payments in the Home Credit app. This will show any outstanding amount as well as payment schedule of your loan.
Auto-debit arrangement is allowed. This means instead of going and paying thru any of the authorized payment centers, Home Credit will simply deduct the amount due from your account. As of this writing, this arrangement is available to BPI, BDO, Metrobank, Security Bank, and RCBC.
A minimum of P200 penalty fee will be charged in case of late payment. Keep in mind that the fee will be added separately on top of your unpaid installment.
The bottom line is this: when you apply for a loan, regardless of the lender, always make it a habit to pay earlier than the due date. Keep your transaction receipts for proof to avoid being “harassed” by lender’s representatives.
Here’s a simple task for you: go to Google and type “online cash loan” on the search bar. What do you see? Tons of online cash providers, right?
