Q: How is the APR Calculated?
A: The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is the ‘all-in’ yearly fee that our customers pay to borrow money from Lendful Financial Inc. It is there to help you work out what your total yearly out-of-pocket cost is. The APR includes our Origination Fee and the Interest Rate.
Q: What is the insufficient funds fee?
A: In the event we debit your account for your monthly principal and interest repayments and there are insufficient funds there, we will charge a $50 for NSF (Non-Sufficient Funds).
