Must read: Be cautious of high fees

Although there is a cap on the financing fee a lender is permitted to charge, it won’t save you much. 20% of a loan of $100 is $20 — which means that if you borrow $500 from a lender, you’ll be paying back $600. And while a payday loan can last as long as 60 days, in many cases, a lender will likely set your due date within a couple weeks after you borrow.

This means you may have trouble repaying your loan, especially if you decide to take out more than one at a time. It may be worthwhile to look into some short-term loan alternatives before you commit to a loan.

Bottom line

North Dakota regulates payday loans to keep residents of Bismarck — as well as other cities throughout the state — safe from extremely high APRs. However, you’ll still have to pay up to 20% of your loan amount in the form of financing fees. Still, there are a number of licensed lenders out there that may be able to offer you a competitive rate.

If you’re looking for a lender, it pays to compare all your payday loan options and to familiarize yourself with North Dakota laws before committing to a loan.
