Been with them for a while with no problems apart from having to go into an arrangement for last one. All fully paid back. Re applied but got declined even though salary had increased since last application. No explanation apart from template email saying low internal credit score


Our review of Response Funding

Response funding are a short-term lender based in Wimborne, Dorset. Formerly known as Fancy a Payday,  They offer their payday loans to be repaid over 3 months, however, these can be repaid at any time and you’ll only pay for the length of time that you borrowed the money.

When talking about price, Response Funding advertise a pretty average APR in the high-cost short-term market. For new customers, they charge an admin fee of £3.99 in order to assist with the costs of setting up the account and performing credit checks. Response Funding do not charge any fees for any late repayments. However, if you are struggling, they urge you to contact them as soon as possible as any late repayments will damage your credit file.

If you're considering taking out a Response Funding loan, the usual high-cost short-term loan health warning applies: make sure you keep up with your repayments. Although Response Funding do not charge for missed or late payments, they will show up on your credit file and make your financial life more difficult in the future. If you find yourself struggling to make your repayments, make sure you let Response Funding know as they have a reputation for being approachable and will work with you to limit the damage.

Overall verdict: If you’re thinking of going down the route of a short term loan then Response Funding are an option to consider. It’s worth bearing in mind that although we have mixed reviews on Choose Wisely, across the web they are on the whole positive. But remember, like any other high-cost short-term loan, compare your options and ensure you can meet the repayments before you apply.
