When should I use Custom Payments?
1. To change the date of your next regularly scheduled repayment
If you prefer to make your next repayment ahead of Wednesday, you can schedule a custom payment in an amount equal to your regular payment.
2. To make a lump sum payment towards your outstanding balance
You can make a custom payment towards your balance in any amount over the $10 minimum. If your Custom Payment amount is less than your next Regular Payment, your next Regular Payment will be reduced by the amount of your Custom Payment and you will pay the balance on the date of your upcoming Regular Payment.
To save on fees, you can make a Custom Payment in an amount greater than your regular payment. This will pay off your next regularly scheduled repayment and the difference (or remainder) will pay off early your last regularly scheduled repayment. If the difference from the Custom Payment is enough to pay off all of the principal on the last Regular Payment, the fees from that last Regular Payment will be waived and your schedule of Regular Payments will end one week earlier.
3. To pay off your entire balance
If you have multiple advances outstanding and want to pay off your entire balance, you can schedule a custom payment in the amount of your full balance. You'll be able to save on fees and refresh your available credit so you can fund again.
Can I Schedule a Custom Payment anytime?
You can schedule a Custom Payment to occur as early as the next business day and as late as your next regularly scheduled repayment. The Custom Payment you schedule cannot be reversed.
How are Custom Payments applied to my outstanding balance?
Custom Payments reduce the amount due on your next Regular Payment. The Custom Payment amount you choose will apply towards your next Regular Payment in the following order: principal, weekly fees, any additional fees (from skipping a repayment or a failed payment).
