Wizzcash acts as both a direct lender and a broker. As direct lender they communicate directly with you, there’s no middle man to deal with and no additional commission fees. If they are not able to help you, they will act as a broker to try to find someone else that can offer a similar or alternative product. Wizzcash states that it aims to be completely transparent, outlining what you will pay each month, what your interest amounts to and what your repayment total will be.
Making sure a loan is right for you is important. Wizzcash will conduct affordability checks and credit checks before approving a loan (Interest is fixed at rate of 292% per year, 0.8% interest per day, representative 1265% APR). Wizzcash are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and members of the Consumer Credit Trade Association (CCTA).
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.
Before you apply for a payday or short-term loan, it is important to make sure you’ve considered all options available to you. Is the expenditure that you’re planning absolutely essential? 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?

Is high-cost, short term borrowing a good idea?
Payday loans, and high-cost, short-term credit are a very expensive method of borrowing and should only be considered 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.

Like most other payday lenders, Wizzcash uses Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) to take your payment automatically on the repayment date you choose during your application.
What is Continuous Payment Authority (CPA)?
With CPA you give a company permission to withdraw money from your account. Wizzcash uses CPA to collect payments due from the debit card provided on the agreed payment date. If the first payment attempt fails, a second attempt will be made on the same day to collect the total outstanding balance. When Wizzcash have made two consecutive failed attempts to collect payment by CPA, no further collections will be attempted using CPA unless you have given your express consent to do so.
