Prepaid credit cards in a free online comparison

If you are interested in a prepaid credit card, we would be happy to inform you about the features, services and offers. Find out what you can (and should) expect from this payment method and compare current top providers and offers on the market. See comv6.com for details

You can use all the usual functions with a prepaid credit card:

  • Online shopping,
  • Cashless payment in the shop
  • Withdraw cash at ATMs (also abroad)
  • Store the card as security (for example at car rental companies in other European countries)

As with the EC card, a PIN is also supplied here, which is only required for cash withdrawals from ATMs. Payment in the shop is only made with a signature and on the Internet only the number, check digit and validity are requested. The security against fraud is therefore relatively low. Even a carelessly thrown receipt can be fatal if the credit card number has not been printed in encrypted form. Unfortunately, this is the case with many companies. Online shopping is even more dangerous. This is where data thieves can easily view your data and use it for fraudulent acts.

The card for everyone

The card for everyone

The difference to a normal credit card is that, like with a cell phone, you do not pay on account, but can only dispose of the amount that you previously transferred to the card. Almost all banks now have a prepaid credit card on offer. The advantage:

  • The card is available without a Credit bureau exam
  • There is no minimum income
  • A purchase on pump is excluded (you can not spend more than is actually there)

Such a card is particularly interesting for minors who spend some time abroad or people who have problems with negative Credit bureau entries.

Direct debit return on the checking account

Direct debit return on the checking account

Most companies only accept advance bank transfers or credit cards online. It is particularly important here to prevent fraudsters, because it is uncertain whether the ordered goods will come after the transfer has been made. With the credit card, the customer has the option to object to an unassignable debit. For this purpose, the document is usually first requested to check whether a signature or approval is available. As with the direct debit return on the checking account, the amount can be retrieved from your own bank.

Unfortunately, prepaid credit cards are relatively expensive compared to the classic variant. Up to 119 USD per year are due for this, which are already debited when you apply. However, many companies link the fees to the turnover made, so that the annual fee is reimbursed when the purchase turnover is reached.

In some cases, the banks even charge fees for toping up the card. These can be based on the deposit amount, i.e. stated as a percentage or calculated as a fixed amount. There are also banks that set a top-up limit. This is particularly annoying when vacationing abroad, as a new transfer from a German current account to the prepaid credit card is necessary.
Interest on the credit is usually not provided. So you should think carefully whether you prefer to use a standard credit card.

Income loans: what are they and where to look for them?

The basic option and option that should be considered first when it comes to loans with no income will be the services of loan institutions as well as Good Credit loans.

Consumers very often come out with the most common sense that a necessary condition for obtaining any form of credit or loan outside Good Finance is having sufficient income, which is also documentable. This conviction is most applicable in relation to the offer of banks that actually have a rather rigid and schematic policy when it comes to the models used to assess the creditworthiness of a potential customer.

It is worth being aware of the fact

bank

That at the moment the operating model of loan institutions will in many cases be quite different from the schemes typical for the sector.

Modern loan institutions very often show a flexible and highly individualized approach to a particular client. In practice, this will simply mean a more flexible model for assessing our creditworthiness by a loan company. Therefore, it may result in a positive assessment of our loan application, even if, for example, we do not have stable and documentable income.

Another option available in the offer of some loan companies will be so-called loans for debt relief. In this case, the customer has the opportunity to obtain financing even in a difficult financial situation, and thus, for example, having debt and/or bailiff seizure.

At the same time, it is worth adding that banks, Loan institutions from a practical point of view are by no means the only categories of entities in which you can apply for a loan. In addition, loan services are also provided by so-called private lenders and even pawnshops.

However, it is obvious that in the last two cases the client will be dealing with entities with a specific mechanism of action, which in addition may involve quite a high risk. However, it remains true to say that the lack of documentable income is by no means a circumstance which, in a way, “automatically” rules out the customer’s chances of obtaining loan financing.

Let’s take a closer look at this undoubtedly interesting issue and try to describe the options available to customers when it comes to broadly understood loans without income.

Income loans for customers: what are their characteristics and where to look for them?

The basic option and option that should be considered first when it comes to loans without income will be the services of loan institutions. It should be recalled here that the loan institution is by no means the same as the so-called para bank. A company with the status of a loan institution must, first of all, appear on the Register of Loan Institutions kept by the Polish Financial Supervision Authority. In addition, the loan sector is properly controlled by the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection.

Lending institutions are also required to conduct their activities in accordance with the provisions of the Consumer Credit Act. This Act specifies, among others, aspects such as the maximum allowable costs for loans/credits, the rights of the borrower or the obligations of the lender, in this case, the loan institution.

It is under the provisions of the Consumer Credit Act that loan institutions are, inter alia, required to provide information on the amount of the Real Annual Interest Rate for their loans even in advertising materials.

As a rule, loans for people with no income under the loan institutions offer will be available in two basic variants, namely:

1. Loans for debt relief or loans for those in debt

2. Loans with negotiable terms

In the first case, as the name suggests, the customer is dealing with a solution dedicated to borrowers who find themselves in financial difficulties. Obtaining a debt relief loan may also be available if the borrower has no documentable income. On the other hand, apart from Good Finance, a loan for debt relief will almost always require the borrower to provide additional collateral for the loan.

The most common form of such collateral

The most common form of such collateral

Is the pledge of real estate, although some lending institutions also accept collateral for, for example, a car. The second option is to take out a loan from another person, i.e. simply a guarantor. In this way, loan institutions try to slightly reduce the risk associated with providing financing to a customer who does not have creditworthiness.

The second of the described options, i.e. loans with flexible conditions, presents a slightly different mechanism. In this case, we are not talking about loans for debt relief, but about the offer of loans outside Good Finance for those customers who do not have standard creditworthiness. In this case, the final shape of the offer presented to the client by the loan institution is always the result of negotiations between the borrower and the consultant of the loan company.

As part of these negotiations, it may be established that the loan company will take into account, for example, those revenues that the client actually obtains, but which, for various reasons, cannot be documented. The loan institution may also, by virtue of negotiations, agree to “turn a blind eye” to the negative history in the potential borrower’s databases, provided that the latter demonstrates its actual ability to pay back the loan.

As a rule, as an income source, loan institutions can also accept various types of benefits, such as 500 plus or a pension. For this category of loans, additional collateral in the form of, for example, a house or apartment lien is not usually required by the lender.

Other options for clients without income

Other options for clients without income

As you can see in the examples above, even the most flexible loan offers presented by loan institutions also assume some kind of verification of the customer’s creditworthiness. However, there are also entities on the market that provide loan financing without performing such verification at all.

A loan without income and without verification of creditworthiness can also be obtained, for example, at a pawnshop. However, it is worth realizing that this will be a highly specific form of credit. First of all, a Good Credit loan always and without exception requires material collateral, of course in the form of items that are attractive to the Good Credit.

Therefore, a loan can be obtained by, for example, consumer electronics, valuables, telephones and the like. Another important issue is the valuation of individual things by the pawnshop. The customer should not be prepared for the valuation to be equal to the market value of a laptop, for example. Most often, the pawn shop quote accounts for 60-70% of that value.

The Good Credit loan obviously involves costs in the form of a commission or interest rate. The entire loan amount, including its costs, must be 100% covered by pledged assets. It simply means that if you want to take out a loan of USD 4,000 plus USD 500 at a pawn shop, your client will have to pledge things worth USD 4,500, naturally given the pawn’s valuation, not the market value.

Advantages of Good Credit loans? As a rule, pawnshops do not verify the customer’s credit history at all, nor do they check their income.

The second option may be financing from private lenders

The second option may be financing from private lenders

Here, however, in some cases, we have to reckon with the fact that such a lender will check our history in the databases (of course, remember that we must always give written consent for such a check). Unfortunately, private loans usually have very high costs. In addition, the borrower’s risk is also great here. Before deciding to use a private loan, it is really worth checking to see if our potential lender is not on the Warning List of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (this list includes data not only of companies but also of private persons).

Of course, for both loans in pawnshops and especially private loans, it is necessary to read the loan agreement very carefully, paying special attention to the part devoted to costs. And if the document seems unclear or contains conflicting information, it is safest to simply look for another lender.

It should be remembered that any oral arrangements will have no de facto value. We will be required to repay a certain amount based on what was included in the loan agreement and any additional documentation we have signed.

How do I get a loan for my company?

There are certain precautions that the business owner needs to take to carry it out, such as, for example, the planning that should be the basis of this decision, because without it it is impossible to keep the accounts up to date and deal with the credit values.

The administrator, manager or director, of the enterprise also needs to think long-term when choosing this form to obtain credit, since from the moment a loan is made, the amounts of the installments plus interest must be added to the company’s costs, throughout the term of the contract.

In addition to worrying about returning the amount, don’t forget the installments, interest, etc. But, do not worry, currently, there are many fintechs that provide credit at affordable rates and facilitate the form of payment, installments, slips, etc.

Of course it is important, even so, you need to keep in mind that a loan is not a bonus, nor an anticipation of receivables, but a money to be borrowed, that is, the time to pay will come.

 

Don’t fall for scams!

loan scam

Do not make payments or deposits in advance, even with arguments such as, “incurring upfront costs” or “covering fees and taxes”. When that happens, pay attention! It could be fraud.

How to choose the cheapest mortgage loan? What to look for?

 

A mortgage is one of the largest financial commitments that you can incur. A loan for a house or flat is an investment for many years, so you should think carefully about what offer we will choose.

The modern banking market is full of mortgage loan offers. Almost every bank operating in the country offers this product, and the demand for this type of liabilities has been the highest for years.

Interest is not everything

Interest is not everything

The increase in interest in mortgage loans is due to the relatively low interest rates that have been on the banks’ offer for several months. All this thanks to the favorable level of current reference rates.

However, interest rate alone, in contrast to widely disseminated information, is not an indicator of the attractiveness of a loan. The total cost of our commitment will include many other fees.

What most accurately reflects the current cost of the mortgage is the APRC, ie the Actual Annual Interest Rate. This ratio expresses the percentage of the annual total cost of the loan to the originally borrowed money.

The total cost of the loan

The total cost of the loan

Looking for the cheapest and the best mortgage on the market, it is worth going to several banks and asking for the preparation of an initial loan proposal. Remember, however, that no bank will accept your application unless you have good credit standing and make no own contribution.

Mortgage loan offers calculated by individual banks will show the total cost of the loan. Its size consists not only of interest, but also commission, account maintenance costs, loan repayment insurance or compulsory cross-selling services.

In the case of loans denominated in foreign currencies, the additional fee included in the total cost of the loan will be the income tax on the loan.

Additional costs

Additional costs

In the case of mortgage loans, it is worth remembering a few additional fees that we will have to pay. This is, among others the cost of bridging insurance with which the bank will secure the loan in the period between the payment of the borrower’s funds and the entry of the mortgage in the land and mortgage register.

Low own contribution insurance can also be added – if you can’t invest enough cash or other goods for investment.

In the case of a mortgage, the banks will also add a fee for the estimation or full expert valuation of the property. You will also be required to pay a tax fee on civil law transactions.

Termination of loan »Check legal possibilities!

There are factors that make you want to terminate a long-term real estate loan. Unemployment, divorce or death sometimes leads to financial bottlenecks that make it impossible to repay the loan installments.

To escape a personal bankruptcy, there is sometimes only the possibility of termination of the real estate loan and the sale of the property. Unfortunately, high costs often arise in this way.

A few years are usually not enough

A few years are usually not enough

To achieve a significantly higher purchase price than was paid for the purchase. The costs for brokers, notary, etc. are added to the previous costs. In particular, the early termination of the real estate loan can be expensive.

As a lender, the bank is entitled to compensation because it has to forego interest payments for the next few years. These compensation payments are called prepayment penalties. Currently, interest rates are very low, driving this fee higher.

The crisis affects interest rates

  • A prepayment penalty will be payable in the event of early termination
  • There are only a few possibilities for a special termination
  • The revocation of a loan should be done together with a lawyer
      •  

Rescheduling installment credit – what matters is the timing

bank

  • In the case of a faulty cancellation policy: In recent years there was more often the case that banks have used wrong cancellation policy. If your contract was also flawed, you have the option to withdraw your loan. In this case, the bank may not pay you a prepayment penalty. Of course, you will still have to repay the missing installments (without additional interest). It is important that you consult a lawyer for this withdrawal.
  • After a term of ten years: Even if you have chosen a mortgage loan with a 15- or 20-year fixed interest, you have the legal right to terminate this loan after ten years without having to pay a prepayment penalty. The decisive factor is the date on which you received the loan. In addition, you still have to observe a notice period of half a year. The loan can, therefore, be terminated after two years and six months.

Terminate loan early?

To terminate your loan without additional fees. However, this must either be ten years since the loan has been passed or errors in the cancellation policy of the contract to be found.

To withdraw a loan, you should always seek professional help from a lawyer. It can help to significantly reduce the pending compensation due. Request a Good Credit loan offer now Now to the online loan calculator and find the cheapest loan! X

PPI Credit and Monthly Insurance

Credit insurance is a product specific to SMEs that offer credit sales. It concerns above all the commercial risk that arises during a sale. In this context, it should not be confused with monthly insurance which can be taken out when a loan is taken by an individual. Our explanations.

 

The risk of delusional

The risk of delusional

Credit insurance as such has no direct link with consumer credit . It mainly concerns the self-employed and SMEs which offer the sale of goods or services on credit , that is to say with the possibility offered for the company’s client to pay after receipt of the service . By offering this possibility of payment after delivery of the service, the company is exposed to the risk of non-payment by customers. We thus speak of the risk of delinquency which includes:

  • The risk of impossibility of payment of the customers: if for example the delivered goods cannot be paid by the customer following an insolvency or a bankruptcy.
  • The risk of customer refusal to pay: in the event, for example, of a dispute over the service provided.

For a company, the realization of this risk leads to a double financial loss: on the one hand the service was not paid, and on the other hand it is necessary to add to this first loss the time and the money necessary for the attempt collection of the unpaid debt.

 

Credit insurance: protection against the risk of delinquency

Credit insurance: protection against the risk of delinquency

Faced with this risk, credit insurance works like a traditional cover: in the event of the risk occurring, the insured company receives compensation from the insurer. This is called credit insurance because it specifically insures against the risks of selling on credit . This type of cover is therefore aimed at SMEs and the self-employed, and has no direct link with consumer credit. For more information, see for example the Business-factoring page dedicated to credit insurance.

 

Monthly insurance, or PPI

Monthly insurance, or PPI

Credit insurance, which concerns businesses, should therefore not be confused with monthly insurance . This coverage, called PPI (for Payment Protection Insurance), is an optional product for people who take out consumer credit and guarantees the repayment of the credit in the event of unemployment, illness or accident. For more information, Multicredit offers a detailed explanation on how this insurance works.
