If you’re searching for QuickQuid and you’ve landed on our page, you’re probably looking at how they compare to other lenders like Satsuma. Here’s our quick guide.

Satsuma versus QuickQuid?

QuickQuid only offer very short term loans. You can borrow up to £1,000 and choose to repay it over one, two or three months.

Satsuma loans are very different. As a new customer you can still borrow up to £1,000 (subject to affordability), but you can choose to repay your loan over any period from three to twelve months.

This could mean spreading the cost of your loan into smaller instalments. And, should you ever miss a payment, we won’t add extra charges. Unlike QuickQuid, Satsuma never add on late payment fees or any other charges whatsoever, what you see upfront is what you pay.

Check before you apply with Satsuma

QuickQuid and Satsuma both do credit checks when you apply for a loan. The result of this credit check will play a part in the approval process of your loan. But we understand you may be worried about a credit check, especially if you've had credit issues in the past.

Satsuma has a free way to find out if you could be accepted for a loan without affecting your credit rating. QuickQuid don’t offer this service.

As a responsible lender we want to ensure you only borrow money you can afford to repay. We don't want you taking on unnecessary debt.

But it isn't all about your credit rating. Even if you have had credit issues in the past.

When considering your application we don't just look at your credit history. We will consider your personal circumstances even if you have a current CCJ.
