Because the process is so fast and easy.
The days of getting to know your bank manager or even bank staff are gone. Things have become so impersonal. The banks’ head offices now move their local staff around so much that the teller that you used to know at your local branch has now moved on to another branch and just when you get to know the new one, he or she moves on too. Going into the bank usually means that you will need to deal with their very long queues and numerous complicated forms that will require completion, and that has to happen during their limited opening hours. If you want to borrow money from the big banks their fine print is often hard to understand for even the best of us, and they are so slow. Their lending processes takes days, if not weeks, to finalise and you don’t know where you stand throughout the process. You may wait until they have done all their checking and work just to find out that they won’t lend to you.
The solution to all this unnecessary effort is now available to us via the World Wide Web Online lenders are now very much improved. They are well regulated by ASIC in Australia and all need to be members of a recognized dispute resolution service such as the Credit Ombudsman Service Ltd just in case a borrower needs someone independent to help with sorting out any disagreements between the borrower and the online lender. But it is the convenience of their service that sets them apart from the traditional banks. Most of all they are fast and easy loans and you can usually fill out the application form online within minutes.
The best thing is that you know exactly where you stand. No waiting around and dealing with the uncertainties of the banks process. It really is a modern convenient service. Of course being online you can do all of this from the convenience of your home. Wow, no queuing! The internet really has changed the way we do things.
Practicaly all online lenders also support mobile devices so you can apply by using your iPad, iPhone or equivalent. This is all done in a very secure environment with most online lenders having very strict privacy policies which they publish on their websites for complete transparency.
It is great to see some companies are now prepared to step in and lend where the banks might otherwise have not. Such as a fast loan to pay a medical bill, or a emergency shortfall cash.
Convenience is here thanks the internet, and online lenders are providing a service that the banks would never be prepared to do.
