Must read: 247moneybox went into administration in December 2019
247moneybox was a direct lender providing small, fast online payday loans. Their loans may were only ever suitable if you were looking for a small amount to help see you over for a few days or weeks, but were not a medium to long term financial solution.
247Moneybox says that If your application is approved before 5pm it typically sends payment instructions to its payment provider on the same day. If your application is approved after 5pm it typically sends payment instructions the next working day.
Firstly, you’ll need to complete an online application form. If approved by 5pm, 247moneybox will send payment instructions to the bank that day. If your application isn’t accepted until after 5pm, the bank will be notified the following day. Once the bank has been instructed payments can take up to 3 working days to go through.
247moneybox may run some checks, including a potential call to your employer. All this call will consist of is asking to speak to yourself, with the caller identifying as ‘247’.
Once you have received your loan, repayments will be taken out through Continuous Payment Authority. You also have the option to repay part or all of your loan early by logging into your online account. This could save you money in interest.
What is a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA)?
A CPA is a recurring payment in which you give a company permission to withdraw money from your account on a reoccurring basis. CPA’s differ from direct debits because they give the company being paid the ability to withdraw money from your account whenever they wish, and to take payments of different amounts without consulting you.Most payday loan companies will use CPA’s to collect your repayments, however you can cancel this by either consulting with your lender or your bank.

Changing you loan: Additional borrowing options and early repayment
Short-term or “payday” loans from companies such as 247moneybox are a very expensive method of borrowing. Therefore, you should only consider this option as a last resort. They may not solve your money problems, and are not a good idea for borrowing over longer periods, or for sustained borrowing.
Before you apply for a payday or short-term loan, make sure you’ve considered other options. Is the expenditure that you’re planning absolutely essential? If you can defer a purchase then you could save yourself money in the long run. If you’re struggling to pay a bill, then why not talk to your electricity, gas, phone or water provider to see if you can work out a payment plan?
