Online money lending apps are made to offer a convenient way to apply for loans quickly. About a few years ago, getting a loan from a traditional bank was a cumbersome task. Putting together an exhaustive list of documents was not only burdensome but also a complex process, involving a lot of paperwork. In today's times, if you need a loan, you have plenty of good online lending apps to choose from and they definitely have changed the way you borrow.

How is an online lender app any different from the bank you've been dealing with for years? The newest generation of online money lenders/lending platforms is focused on making it easy for you to borrow.

Benefits of Taking a Loan From Online Lending Apps

1. 24/7 availability

The online lending app is available on Google play store and apple app store 24/7. You can download it anytime and access it anytime you want.

2. Convenience

3. Quick approval

Online lending apps let you know the status of your loan application more or less instantly. You also get to know how much you can borrow and what your monthly payments would look like.

Traditional banks are different. They may allow you to apply online, but it may take a while for them to respond to your loan application as it may go through a person who has to review your application for which you may even have to go to the branch.

4. Minimal documentation

Since the entire application process is done online, you just need to upload the minimum documents required to process the loan. It saves your time and paper as well.

5. Easier approval

Traditional banks are very strict with their eligibility criteria. If you've a great credit, it's easy to get a loan from them. But if you are still building your credit or are going through a rough patch with your finances, your loan application is more likely to get rejected. Online money lenders have easy to meet eligibility criteria, and do not base their decision solely on credit scores; they look at "alternative" information to evaluate your creditworthiness.

6. Easy to compare loan offers to get the best deal

The online lending marketplace is flooded with online lending apps. In order to find the best loan offer, you have the privilege of comparing different loan offers from different online lenders/lending platforms and choose the one that's best suited to your requirements.

7. Better interest rates

Online money lending apps often charge competitive interest rates and much lower service fees. That could be because they do not have the same overhead costs as most of the traditional banks do. The benefit of which is translated into lower interest rate for consumers.

8. Faster EMI calculation

When you apply for a loan from a traditional bank, the bank officer will carry out some calculation to determine your EMIs. Now, if you are a person who is 'not-so-good' at math, you wouldn't understand how the officer derived that figure.

However, when you apply for a loan online, you get access to an online EMI calculator that does the math for you in a jiffy to derive at the EMI amount that's comfortable for you. The results are transparent, accurate and error-free.

9. Easy repayment options

Fintech companies feature a customized payment system through which you can choose the EMI amount and the loan tenure according to your financial capability.
