Why haven't I received a confirmation email?

In the majority of cases the reason for this is that the email service provider has not recognised our email address and mistaken our communication for junk or spam mail.

To avoid missing important communications regarding your account we advise all customers to add info@myjar.com to their approved contacts.

What information do I need to provide?

It is important that the information you provide to us is complete and accurate as we use this information to assess your application. Please make sure you have any documentation you might need before starting the application.

Do you need any supporting documentation?

In some circumstances, it may be necessary for us to request documents to support your application, such as bank statements or proof of address. We will tell you if we need these from you during the application process.

 

You can watch the video below to find out more on how to send us your documents.

If there is any information missing from an application, it won’t be possible to complete the process electronically. If you are confident that you haven’t missed any of the fields required then please contact our customer support team via email or phone. Full details on how to make contact can be found here.

How do I send my supporting documents?

We want to offer the best possible service and, as such, it’s important to us to process your documents quickly and efficiently. Please ensure that you follow our instructions to help you submit your documents correctly first time around.

 

Please ensure that:

  • Images are not cropped
  • All corners are visible
  • Images are high resolution
  • Images are not blurry and are easy to read

 

You don’t need any special equipment in order to send this information to us, but we recommend that you check that you’re using a high-quality photo setting on your camera or phone.

 

You can submit your documents via your account area by using the ‘upload documents’ tool. Or alternatively, you can email them to reviewteam@myjar.com.

 

You can watch the video below to find out more on how to send us your documents.

 

Why have I been asked to send supporting documents?

In order to lend responsibly, sometimes we ask some of our customers to provide extra documents to support their application, such as bank statements, a copy of your debit card, ID or a proof of your address. We do this to check things such as identity or income information before lending. We ask these customers to send documents including 30 days’ worth of bank statements and/or the front view of their bank card.

 

You can watch the video below to find out more on how to send us your bank statement.

 

How do I get hold of my bank statements?

Most high street banks offer online banking, with downloadable .XPS or .PDF bank statements generally accessible at the touch of a button. Your bank should be able to help you if you are unsure of how to download the information.

 

Should you not have online banking or internet access, however, your bank should be able to give you a paper copy of your bank statements, and this is free of charge at most high street banks. You can then scan or photograph your paper bank statements and send them to us at reviewteam@myjar.com.

 

Please ensure that the bank statements you send us include the most up to date 30 days’ worth of transactions.

What is the pin code used for?

The PIN code provides additional security to your account and is inputted as the final step of the application process. Once your application has been approved the PIN code is used to log in to your account and to help us confirm your identity if you contact us by phone.

Financial Advice

Is a MYJAR loan the right choice for me?

This is entirely dependent on your individual situation. It is important you choose the right loan for you. Our loans are short-term loans, and therefore should not be used as a long-term financial situation.

 

If you are experiencing financial difficulty, any type of credit is likely to be unsuitable. However, if you are confident that you will be able to comfortably repay when payments are due then one of our loans may suit your needs.

Will a poor credit score be a problem?

A credit score is calculated by analysing many details about an individual like their income, their financial history and how much credit they have. This gives lenders an indication of how much of a risk it will be to approve a loan. The information used to calculate the score comes from many sources including details from the customer, banks and credit companies.

 

The credit scoring system allocates points for each piece of relevant information and uses these to produce a score. This score then helps lenders to decide whether to lend and if so, how much. Each lender uses these scores differently, which means that being declined for a loan from one organisation does not mean you will automatically be refused by another company. We take other factors into account before making a decision as we are aware that a poor credit history does not provide the full picture.

 

Our loans are short-term and because of this we are able to accept applications from anyone who has a regular income regardless of their credit score, although this does not ensure that we will approve you for a loan. It is important that we are confident you are able to pay back on time and you can afford the repayments.

What happens if my application is declined?

If we are unable to approve your loan application, we will notify you by email to tell you. The email will contain additional instructions if you want to request to have your application reconsidered. You can do this if you believe our decision-making process had not taken all the information into account, or if your circumstances have changed and you think it may make a difference. If your loan has been declined and you wish to ask us to reconsider our decision, then please write to us at the following address with as much information regarding the grounds for your appeal as you can:

 

MYJAR, PO Box 6040, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS1 9TE

 

You can also call to discuss this with one of our customer support advisors before you write to us to confirm that you are sending the right information.

Will late repayments affect my credit score with you?

Yes. Late repayment of any loan will damage your credit score. The impact will depend on the frequency and length of delayed payments. If your loan remains unpaid, we may register a default against you at a credit reference agency but if we do so, we will give you notice that this is what we plan to do. A default registered on your credit file is likely to have a significant impact on your ability to get future credit.

Is credit scoring fair?

The way in which credit scores are calculated is impartial and consistently applied to each customer in the same way. We have an obligation to engage in responsible lending and, therefore, using credit scoring as one of our tools is essential for the good of both our customers and our company.

What happens if I experience financial difficulties?

We understand the stress that can be caused by financial difficulties. If you let us know that you are struggling, we will always try to help you by allowing you additional time to pay.

 

Although we are not authorised or regulated to provide debt advice, we support the work of the leading free debt advice agencies. They each have specially trained staff to help people with money problems and their success rate in finding good solutions is very high.

 

We work closely with Payplan, one of the leading providers of free debt help. You can also get free independent debt help from National Debtline, Christians Against Poverty and Stepchange Debt Charity. You can also find details of your nearest Citizens Advice office.

 

We will always work with these agencies to find the best outcome for you. National Debtline have produced an advice sheet that you might find useful and it can be found at Payday loans fact sheet.

 

You might also be eligible for benefits that you are not claiming. You can visit the Government’s benefits calculator page at which gives very helpful advice.

How do I put you in touch with the debt management company I'm working with?

If you are currently working with a debt management company, please ask them to contact us in writing with their authorisation to act on your behalf. They can contact us via email at dsa@myjar.com or fax the documents to 0203 004 0991. Once we receive the appropriate documentation, we will contact them directly.

What does it mean if you send my account for debt collecton?

If we send an account for debt collection, this means that we are asking a professional company to collect the loan on our behalf. Using debt collection agencies is always a last resort and only used if we have had no contact from a customer who has not repaid their loan. We only use agencies that are members of the Credit Services Association. This indicates that they set high professional standards that all of their members must meet.

 

These agents will aim to work with our customers to help them set up repayment arrangements that they can afford. However, if customers do not work with us or our agents to pay their loans, it may leave us with no choice other than to go to Court. This is never what we want to do and we will always avoid that if we can.

Where can I get help with my debts?

As responsible lenders we work with a number of impartial debt advisory services. If you want to be more confident with your money and have greater control, a budget plan can be invaluable. The Government’s Money Advice Service has all sorts of useful information about managing your money. You can find a budget planner here and there are links to all sorts of money saving tips and advice.

What is a default notice?

When a loan is not paid back on time, lenders have a responsibility to record this with a credit reference agency. Before we register a default against you, we will contact you to give you notice of our intention of doing so. This will give you time to make the missed payments or to agree a repayment plan with us. If you are in financial difficulty, we will always try to help you if you ask us to.

 

If a default is registered against you it will make it more difficult for you to obtain credit in the future.

Where can I get help to create a personal budget plan?

The Government’s Money Advice Service has useful information regarding all aspects of managing your money. You can find a budget planner here and there are many other money saving tools and advice. Having a clear budget plan will make you more confident with your money and will result in you having greater control. We would recommend taking some time to visit The Money Advice Service if you ever experience any difficulty.

General Queries

How can I apply for a loan?

New customers

 

New customers can apply at any time by completing the online application form which you can access by clicking 'Let's get started'. The form takes a few minutes to complete and once you have been approved for the loan we will keep you informed from within your online account area, and by both text and email. To complete your loan application, simply login to your online account, follow the simple steps and read and sign the credit agreement and other important loan documents which will be presented there. We usually send money to your account within just 20 minutes of final approval.

 

 

Returning customers

 

If you're a returning customer, simply log in to your account, update any information that is required and select the loan you want (amount & term). You will need to sign a credit agreement and accept our terms and conditions each time you borrow. These important documents will be presented to you, before you are finally approved.

Can I get a loan if I don't own my own home?

Yes, you can. All that matters is that we are confident that you will be able to repay the loan on time and without difficulty.

Am I eligible for a loan?

To be eligible for a loan, you will need to meet the following criteria:

 

  • Be over 18 years of age
  • Reside permanently in the UK
  • Hold a bank account in the UK with an active debit card
  • Have a verifiable mobile phone number and email address
  • Have a regular source of income
  • Able to afford the repayments over the term of the loan

 

Once we have confirmed these details we will make any necessary checks required to support our lending decision and to ensure the loan is affordable for you.

Do I need to have a bank account?

Yes, and you will need to have a debit card linked to the account. This is because we will send money directly to your bank account upon approval of your loan and we then collect the repayments using the linked debit card. We do work with customers who have a basic bank account and debit card, but we do not approve applications with a prepaid or credit card.

How do I know if my loan is approved?

As soon as a decision is made regarding your loan we will inform you by text and email.

How do your loans work?

We provide short-term loans of 3, 6, and 12 months with a credit limit of up to £3600.

 

Our short-term loans are not suitable for longer term borrowing needs.

 

Our loans are repaid by instalments and are available for new and returning customers, subject to eligibility. We will automatically collect each instalment from your debit card monthly on your pay date. If you are paid weekly or every two weeks we will schedule the instalments on a four-weekly cycle.

 

Each instalment includes a combination of both interest and the loan capital.

How much can I borrow?

Up to £900 over a period of 3 months.
Up to £1800 over a period of 6 months.
Up to £3600 over a period of 12 months.

 

The amount you can borrow, and loan term is subject to our eligibility and affordability checks.

 

Our short-term loans are not suitable for longer term borrowing needs.

 

It is important to remember that you should never borrow if you are in any doubt that you will be able to make your repayments. Late payments will incur daily interest charges.

Do you charge for a transferring money into my account?

No. There are no hidden costs and the agreed interest payments will be the only thing we charge you. National Debtline have produced an advice sheet that you might find useful and it can be found by clicking here.

How much will a loan cost me?

It is absolutely free to apply for a loan from us. We only charge interest for the days that you borrow and you may be able to save money by making early repayments. Here at MYJAR we pride ourselves in keeping details of all costs clear, simple and transparent.

 

3-month loan: 0.75% per day (or 75p per day for each £100 borrowed).

6-month loan: 0.65% per day (or 65p per day for each £100 borrowed).

12-month loan: 0.35% per day (or 35p per day for each £100 borrowed).

 

We guarantee that you will not be required to repay more than twice the amount you originally borrowed on any of our loan products.

 

Our short-term loans are not suitable for longer term borrowing needs.

 

REPRESENTATIVE EXAMPLE: Borrow £300 for 3 months. Annual interest rate 274% (fixed). 3 equal instalments of £148.02. Total amount to repay £444.06. Representative 1081% APR.

How much does it cost to contact you?

Telephone

The 020 3006 2000 telephone number that we provide our customers is a standard geographic number for the London region and, therefore, just standard network charges will apply.

 

Text

We do not use a premium rate SMS number or charge you to send an SMS and, therefore, your standard network charges will apply. You can contact us via text message using this number 82777.

 

Online

Managing your account online is free and these services are available 24 hours a day.

What is APR?

Annual Percentage Rate (or APR) is a figure designed to illustrate the amount of interest you will pay annually on your loan if you kept the loan for a full year. For that reason, APR figures can appear relatively high on loans over shorter periods compared to loans over more than one year.

 

 

To help you get a better idea of what your loan will cost you over the time you will be borrowing, we suggest looking at the amount of interest charged per day. These daily charges are outlined below.

 

3-month loan: 0.75% per day (or 75p per day for each £100 borrowed);

6-month loan: 0.65% per day (or 65p per day for each £100 borrowed);

12-month loan: 0.35% per day (or 35p per day for each £100 borrowed).

Our short-term loans are not suitable for longer term borrowing needs.

 

Our Representative APR is 1081% APR. This figure is designed to illustrate the most common APR that our customers receive based on the average loan value and term.

The Loan

Will I be eligible to reborrow, if I have repaid my loan in full?

Once you have repaid your loan simply login to your online account and follow the simple steps to see if you are eligible to borrow. You will be subject to further checks, so that we can ensure you can afford the repayments.

 

The most important thing when you borrow from us is that you are confident of your ability to make your repayments on time. Late payments can damage your credit score.

How long do I have to cancel my loan?

You can cancel your loan at any time up to 14 days after the loan has been paid to you. To do this you need to call us on 020 3006 2000. If you want to withdraw you must notify us of your intention to do so, either in writing or over the phone. Speak with a Customer Service representative on 020 3006 2000. To cancel in writing you can write to MYJAR, PO Box 6040, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS1 9TE, fax your cancellation notice to 0203 004 0991 or email info@myjar.com.

 

If you cancel your loan you must repay the amount of credit and accrued interest (from the date the credit was provided until you repay the credit) without undue delay and no longer than 30 calendar days after giving notice of withdrawal. The amount of interest that will accrue per day is set out in the loan agreement that you have completed with us. If you ask us to, we will inform you without delay of the amount of interest payable per day.

 

You can repay the capital borrowed and interest by calling us on 020 3006 2000 and using the debit card that we have registered for you or by bank transfer. You can also request our bank details by emailing us at info@myjar.com.

Can I repay the loan before the repayment date?

Yes, and we encourage you to do so if you can and only if it is right financially for you. Paying early and borrowing again soon after repayment is not recommended, however, the sooner you repay your loan, the less it will cost you as you only pay for the days that you’ve had it.

 

You can make a payment outside of the scheduled arrangement via the following:

 

Website

 

Log in to your account using your registered mobile number and pin code and select the REPAY NOW option.

 

Text

 

To pay the full outstanding balance you can send a text from the mobile phone you have registered with us to 82777 with the words LOAN REPAY.

 

Telephone

How long do I have to wait before I can apply for a new loan?

If you have repaid your loan you will be able to apply for a new one subject to eligibility.

 

Short-term loans are not intended as a long-term financial solution, so if you find that you need to borrow frequently you should consider whether this is the best option for you.

 

If you find that you need to take loans out often, you should consider getting some impartial advice about your finances. You can get free advice from:

The Repayments

Where can I see my repayment schedule?

Logging in to your account will give you access to the details of your account including the repayment schedule. This is also where you can go to make early payments. Remember, we only ever charge you interest on the days that the loan remains outstanding, so we strongly encourage you to pay early whenever you can, that way you can save yourself money.

How can I check my balance or repayment date?

To check your outstanding balance or loan due date, please log in to your account.

How long will I have to make repayments?

Our short-term loans are repaid via monthly instalments. You can choose to repay in full at any time and you will only pay for the days that you have borrowed. If you want to make additional payments to reduce the interest you repay, you can log in to your account to make a repayment.

 

Our short-term loans are not suitable for longer term borrowing needs.

How are loan repayment arrangements agreed?

We always try to ensure that loans are affordable for our customers. We set your repayments to coincide with the date that you get paid. The full schedule of payments will be put in writing so that you will always know when the next payment is due. In addition to this we will also send you a reminder in advance of each scheduled payment through SMS and email.

 

If you miss a payment we will contact you to let you know what has happened and that we will be trying to take the payment again in a few days. We will also contact you the day before the second attempt is made via SMS. It is our aim to make this as easy as possible so that you can avoid damage to your credit score with Credit Reference Agencies. It’s not in our interest to have customers who are getting into financial difficulty so this is as important to us as every other stage of the process.

 

There is always the option to make additional payments or to repay the balance in full at any time during the agreed loan repayment period.

What methods of payment can I use?

Once we have agreed on the most convenient time of the month for you to make repayments we can then take payments using a Continuous Payment Authority using the details of your debit card. These automatic payments will be prearranged in a repayment schedule that you can view at any time.

 

If you wish to make a payment outside of the scheduled arrangement, then you can do so via the following:

What is a continous payment authority and how does it work?

When you sign up with us, you provide details of your debit card and agree that we can take payments from that card to repay your loan. This is called a Continuous Payment Authority. We will never take more money than we are owed by you and will always tell you at least a day before the payment is due, that we intend to take a payment. The amount we try to take will be the full instalment that is due, which may include unpaid interest and charges. However, if you specifically ask us to, we may take smaller amounts.

 

If there is not enough money in your account to pay your loan when it is due, we will contact you and let you know, and if appropriate, try to take the payment at a later time.

 

We will only ever try to take the payment, using the Continuous Payment Authority, a maximum of twice for any loan. If we are not able to obtain payment from your card after the second attempt, it will be your responsibility to arrange payment to us.

 

We will always send you a message to confirm that your payment has been received. Payments to us will appear on your bank account as “MYJAR”.

Why do you use a continuous payment authority arrangement?

We use a Continuous Payment Authority to make it convenient for you to make your loan repayments, without having to contact us every time a repayment is due. If there are insufficient funds available, we can only make one further attempt under the Continuous Payment Authority to collect the payment. We will contact you before making the second attempt so that you are aware of what is being taken from your account by us. If there are still insufficient funds available after the second attempt, we will not try again and it will then be your responsibility to contact us to make a payment.

Can I cancel a continuous payment authority?

Yes. You can cancel a Continuous Payment Authority at any time by contacting your bank. You can also cancel the arrangement by calling us on 020 3006 2000 or by emailing us at info@myjar.com and the arrangement will be cancelled with immediate effect. It will be important for you to make other arrangements to make your repayments on time as late payments can damage your credit score.

What are the charges for late payments?

Interest is charged at a daily rate of 0.35% - 0.75%, depending on the type of loan you have chosen. However, no matter how late your payments are, you will not pay more than twice the amount that you borrowed.

Why hasn't my repayment been taken from my bank?

Login to your account to check on the status of your account. You will be able to see here if there is a late payment. If a payment has been missed you should check that there were enough funds in your account on the day payment was requested or that the debit card we hold for payment is valid. You can do this by contacting your bank or our customer services team.

 

If your payment has been missed, you can make a payment by logging in to your account. Alternatively, follow the instructions below.

Can I change the dates of my repayments?

Payments will be scheduled on your pay date, however, don’t forget that you can pay in part to reduce interest payments or pay in full early and only pay for the days that you have borrowed.

 

If your loan has been issued, please contact our customer service team on 020 3006 2000. Your instalment repayment dates have been set to coincide with your monthly pay dates but if you need to change them, we will always try to help.

What if I lose my debit card or it expires?

Please contact a member of our customer support team to make a new arrangement before your next payment is due. If you don’t let us know the payment will be rejected even when you have sufficient funds in your account and this will appear as a missed payment on your credit report.

Sorry, we can't answer your question here.

Please feel free to contact us & we'll be happy to answer your question personally.
