Please note: High-cost short-term credit is unsuitable for sustained borrowing over long periods and would be expensive as a means of longer-term borrowing.
Uploan is a new direct lender (not a broker) offering relatively small loans for one-off purposes, such as a new car, dream holiday, wedding, home improvement, etc.

What is a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA)?
With a CPA you give a company permission to withdraw money from your account on a regular basis.
CPAs differ from a direct debit 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/short-term lenders will use a CPA to collect your repayments. You can cancel this at any point by either consulting with your loan provider or your bank.
