Using Peachy to apply for a loan was very quick and easy. There are a few details you have to fill out but it was very simple. I received an approval within 15 minutes and received the money later that day. No problems! I would definitely use them again.

My experience with Peachy was always a good one, anytime I needed to borrow they were always very helpful and the process to which you apply is straight forward and easy to complete. I never had a problem with the service at any time, and the friendly staff were always on hand to help me find a solution which was affordable for me due to my circumstances at the time.

Peachy Loans offer their loans at a representative APR of 1255.66% which is mid-table on Choose Wisely. Something that does set them apart is that the lowest loan term is 15 days which is rare as most other lenders have a minimum payment term of at least one month. Also instead of having set monthly repayment dates, Peachy Loans allow their customers to log into their online account area and pay off the loan bit by bit if and when they have extra funds. There is no charge to do this and by doing so it will reduce the amount of overall  interest you’ll pay - worth doing if you can afford it.

Across the website there is a strong sense that Peachy Loans want to position themselves as a responsible lender, they have a page on the steps they take to protect their customers and there is a number of educational articles on their blog that discuss financial issues such as saving tips, increasing income streams and how to get the best deals on things such as holidays. They also pay close attention to the creditworthiness of their customers and state that only 2% to 5% of Peachy Loan applicants are actually granted the loan. This is refreshing to see and it does come across that they actually mean it, rather than using responsible lending as a marketing tool.

Their online reviews support the idea that they genuinely care about their customers and they have received a score of 8.9 out of 10 on TrustPilot. Customers claim to appreciate Peachy Loan’s honesty, great service and reliability. There are a couple of customers who have left reviews stating that they were less than satisfied, but Peachy Loans has replied to all of these trying to resolve their issues.

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 repayments, you will not only harm your credit file but could be subject to a number of fees, which can soon make things very expensive.

Overall verdict: A refreshingly responsible and transparent lender in the market. Their rates aren’t the cheapest, but with their proven customer service and repayment flexibility they could be a lender worth exploring if you are looking for a high-cost short-term loan.
