Payday loans are not reported to the big 3 credit bureaus. This is because there are no hard credit checks performed by payday lenders. Rather, lenders consider recent income history (and near term income) as the primary factor in approving a payday loan. It has proven to be the best indicator of a borrower’s ability to repay the loan. As a result, there is no immediate impact on a borrower's credit score.

CashOne is a referral source, so we do not report any information about payday loans on credit reports. Most lenders also do not report unless there is a default. It is usually a collection agency that would report the default if they could not work out a settlement with the borrower. Note: Many collection agencies do not bother seeking judgments but rather threaten to do so to try to get the borrower to settle the account. The reason is that getting a judgment costs time and money and often does not result in any payment for the debt.
