Our review of QuidMarket

QuidMarket’s representative APR is relatively standard for the high-cost short-term market. In regards to the product QuidMarket offer; they do not charge any fees, they have an online account system to manage your loan repayments and they allow for early repayments. Their loan terms range from three to six months which gives customers the flexibility and forewarning to budget, rather than having to settle the loan all in one go. Nonetheless QuidMarket will still ensure that you can afford to pay back the loan, and part of the criteria is that you earn at least £1,000 per month.

Something that QuidMarket do, which some can find intrusive, is that they will contact your employer to confirm the details that you provided during the application. They can’t provide any information that you haven't given them, it will just be to verify your employment. Even so, this could put some applicants off if they don’t like discussing their business with colleagues.

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.

Overall verdict: If you’re considering a payday type product then QuidMarket are one of the more consumer-focused lenders out there. They are transparent and their price is on par with the rest of the market but as with any high-cost short-term product, approach with caution.
