MyJar - shocking service

Myjar started off well, and then they wanted a copy of my debit card for my 2nd loan application - I duly complied. They then said the picture quality was very poor - rubbish nothing wrong with quality. I said I would take my business to Payday UK. I wrote a review on Trusted Reviews, and they reduced my limit from £2.5k down to zero - they cannot lend to me! The excuse is my credit report had changed in 24hrs - bull. They don't want my business because I wrote a very truthful review, and it did not fit in with their existing reviews. Avoid please, and use a company which appreciate your business.

Offer you a more credit to take out everyone you pay back a loan. You are able to pay short or long term so I have multiple options. I will definetly be back

Apply via their website - very easy to use. I was asked to provide additional information - namely a bank statement.Duly emailed bank statement off and have heard nothing since! No replies to my email enquires. Been 3 days now.I'm assuming I was unacceptable - which is fine, but they need to be professional and state that.I'm actually worrying that I've been ripped off, as they now have my card information AND my bank details!Con at best. Scam at worst!!

My jar have been amazing, I've been with them for a couple of years now and at times when I'm a bit under it they have always helped no questions asked. On two occasions I had problems paying my loan and on both occasions the company kindly deferred the loans for me, something they didn't have to do. I would defo recommend these guys. Great customer service and low rates to go with it. All in all the perfect cup of tea :)

I have used myjar a few times ive found their staff to be helpful when changing card details etc. Their website is easy to use, loans easy to apply and pay back. My only criticism would be that it would be good if less interest could be paid when paying back early. That being said they are honest and upfront about their fees. Definately the best out the lot

I absolutely adore MyJar ... I had been with them when they were originally TxtLoan and have never, ever had a problem with them!I got into a spot of financial difficulty due to do losing my debit card, and needing a new one to be issued - this occurred the day before my loan was due to be repaid.I called MyJar and explained my situation, they were brilliant and deferred my payment for 1 week and 2 days, no interest and no charges.:)

Founded in 2009, MYJAR are a high-cost short-term lender based in London. Dependent on your personal circumstances MYJAR offer high-cost short-term loans of up to £3600. Their representative APR is mid-table on Choose Wisely, but do note the rate you’ll be offered can change dependent on how much you borrow and again, your personal circumstances. To put their rates in perspective, daily interest is 0.75% for a 3 month loan, 0.65% for a 6 month loan and 0.35% for 12 month loan.

Their website is informative and simple to use which makes the whole process of applying less painful. Once you have registered with MYJAR and successfully paid off your first loan you won’t need to go through the application process again. Their handy online account system allows customers to log in, update any information necessary and then reapply. Through this management tool customers can also make early or partial repayments and view their balance. This allows the customer to stay in control and allows them an opportunity to save on interest.

MYJAR have received a very respectable 9.4 out of 10 on TrustPilot from over 3000 reviews (at the time of writing). Customers cite impressive customer service, a simple application process and a reasonable price point. MYJAR make a conscious effort to reply to any dissatisfied customers in order to try and resolve their issue. Even customers who have left positive reviews but flagged a slight concern, such as delayed payout, have received a personalised reply – MYJAR appear to have put a real focus into their customer service and it’s clearly paying off.

As with any high-cost short-term product the usual warning applies. If you have any doubt whether you can afford to repay your loan on time and in full, then don’t apply. By missing or being late with repayment you will incur a fee of £15 (if payment is not made after 3 days), you will continue to pay daily interest on any balance still remaining and you won't do your credit file any favours.

Overall verdict: MYJAR have clearly perfected their customer service and application process, which is reflected in their positive reviews, so if you are looking for a short term loan then MYJAR are worth considering. One thing to mention is that although they do have a competitive APR in comparison to others in the high-cost short-term market, there still may cheaper borrowing solutions available dependant on your circumstances.

About MYJAR

MYJAR offer short-term loans up to £3,600 that can be repaid over loan terms of three, six or 12 months. Their representative APR is 788% and the daily rate is charged at different levels depending on how much you’re looking to borrow and the length of the loan.

The application is completed online and takes only a few minutes to register. MYJAR will let you know if you’re accepted by text and email. Once accepted, you can request the funds which will then be in your account within 15 minutes. If you’re a returning customer then there’s no need to reapply, you can just log in to your online account and request further funds. When applying to MYJAR, even if your credit history isn’t squeaky clean MYJAR will consider your application. However, you will need to have a regular income and be able to prove you can afford the repayments.

MYJAR allow customers to make early repayments in full and the customer will only pay for the days they have borrowed the loan. You can also make partial payments if you have spare cash which means that the overall interest will be reduced – this can be done using the online management tool.
