Understanding Representative APRs is very important before you get any form of credit.
We cover what these terms both mean, and what the figures are for all our lenders; let’s dive in:.
The representative APR of a loan is the effective rate of interest that is paid by at least 51% of a company’s customers considering all charges and fees associated with that product.
The idea is that it gives you a fair indication of the actual total cost of a product.
This was introduced as a result of companies advertising low-interest rates (to appear cheap) but then adding lots of other fees and charges making the overall cost higher.
So, the representative APRs listed below are for that lender; for example, our representative APR is 49.9%, therefore over 51% of our customers paid an effective rate of 49.9% for their loan with the lender they chose.
A representative example is a calculation of all the costs associated with an example loan using the representative APR for that product, thus giving you a fair indication of the monthly payment and total amount payable for the loan amount and term used in the example.
