Established in 2009, 247Moneybox is an innovative next-generation finance company based in central London.
Our goal is simple; we want to provide a more flexible and convenient way to solve short-term money needs. A 'one size fits all' model that some more traditional credit providers take can be frustrating. That’s why we take a different approach and make the entire process as clear and transparent as possible.
At 247Moneybox not only are we passionate about technology, it's what makes us tick; we’re also fully committed to responsible lending. 247Moneybox payday loans are not designed for long-term borrowing or keeping you in debt, but instead are to be repaid in the short-term. If you need to borrow over a longer period there are other, more suitable forms of credit available. Our service is designed to put you in control of your cash flow, for the times when an unexpected bill arrives.
Affordability - Our loans provide a solution for your occasional short-term money needs. They are not suitable for supporting sustained borrowing over longer periods, nor if you are in financial difficulties. The cost of our loans can be higher than other types of loans, such as those requiring you to provide a guarantor, which are typically payable over a longer period, so if you do require a longer term solution there are other more suitable forms of finance available elsewhere. We use the information you provide to help us make a responsible lending decision as to whether you can afford to repay your loan without causing you any financial difficulty. See our questions section below for more information.
Continuous payment authority - Please note that we use continuous payment authorities which are not covered by bank guarantees (unlike direct debits). You are able to cancel a continuous payment authority at any time by contacting us. If you do cancel, you will still owe any outstanding debt and will need to provide an alternative method of repayment on the due date. See our questions section below for more information.
Implications of non-payment - As we report loan information to credit reference agencies, missing payments could adversely affect your credit rating. This may make it more difficult or expensive to obtain credit in the future. We may also pass your account to a debt collection agency or commence legal proceedings to recover the amount you owe. Interest will continue to be added to the amount of credit at the contractual rate on a daily basis until such time as you have repaid what you owe subject to the limits set out in the loan agreement. See our questions section below for more information.
Warning: Late repayment can cause you serious money problems. For help, go to moneyadviceservice.org.uk.

247Moneybox is a principal lender. We use our money to fund our payday loans. Remember a payday loan provides a solution for your occasional short term cash needs. They are not suitable for supporting borrowing over longer periods. If longer term solutions are required, there are other more suitable forms of finance available elsewhere.

The aim of our payday loans is to provide you with a solution to your occasional short term money needs. They are to solve temporary cash flow problems, not for a long term fix and especially not if you already have money issues. Remember our loans will typically cost you more than other forms of credit such as a car loan or credit card. If you need finance for the longer term, please look elsewhere.
There are serious implications for missing or not making a payment. Consider in the first instance that we report loan information to credit reference agencies. Therefore, missing payments could adversely affect your credit rating. This may make it more difficult or expensive to be approved for finance in the future. Secondly, we may also send your debt to a debt collection agency or commence legal proceedings to recover the balance you owe. Thirdly, your bank may also charge you a fee if you pay us by Direct Debit and that Direct Debit does not clear. You should check if your bank charges for a failed Direct Debit under the terms of your account. Any such charge is unrelated to and not charged by us.
If we do not receive payment in full on your repayment day:
247Moneybox is committed to lending responsibly at all times. Our measures include:
We are committed to being a responsible lender. The maximum we would lend to a first-time customer would be £200. A typical first loan is £80, but it may be less than this amount. The final amount will be decided by us and presented to you during the application process before you sign your loan agreement. If you borrow responsibly we may allow you to apply for a larger amount in the future, should you need it, up to a maximum of £800.
Our interest is charged daily at a rate of 0.8% of the amount borrowed. Payday loans are available up to £800. For example, to borrow £100 for 28 days would cost £122.40.
|Interest rate||292% per annum (fixed)|
If your application is approved before 5pm we typically send payment instructions to our bank/payment provider on the same day. If your application is approved after 5pm we typically send payment instructions to our bank/payment provider on the next working day.
Important information: Payment instructions are only sent to our bank/payment provider once your application has been approved, the loan agreement has been signed by us, and on the date(s) stated in your loan agreement, NOT from the time you apply. As a responsible lender we have a number of checks to conduct before we can approve your application including, in some instances, a discreet call to your employer. Once we have instructed our bank/payment provider to make payment then the rest is down to the bank/payment provider network regarding the actual time it takes for the funds to show in your account. This can take up to 3 working days. As you can appreciate this is out of our control. We have every confidence in our systems and processes, however if you feel we have not met our time commitment then let us know.
Our website is available 24/7, subject to any unscheduled or scheduled system downtime. If you are a new customer you can apply for a loan over the same time period however, we are only able to process your application during business hours. If you are a returning customer, you can login to your online account and request a new loan 24/7. In some cases we may be able to process and approve your application for another loan 24/7, however, as a responsible lender we may need to carry out further checks, for example if we haven’t heard from you for a while. We carry out these further checks during business hours.
We do NOT allow you to extend or "rollover" your loan to your next paydate by paying the interest accrued to date. Our loans provide a solution for your occasional short-term needs. They are not suitable for supporting sustained borrowing over longer periods, nor if you have any financial stress. if you require a longer term solution there are other more suitable forms of credit available elsewhere. If money issues become a worry, there are independent organisations such as www.nationaldebtline.org or www.stepchange.org you can ask for advice.

If we need to investigate your complaint further to respond fully, we will tell you and keep you regularly updated.
We will send you our final response as soon as possible but within eight weeks of receiving your complaint. Our final response will explain that you will have ultimate recourse to the Financial Ombudsman Service if you remain dissatisfied. We will enclose a leaflet (or provide a link to information) from the Financial Ombudsman Service with our final response to assist you if you decide to pursue this further course of action. If looking to do so, you will need to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service within six months of receiving our final response.
If you do not refer your complaint in time, the Financial Ombudsman Service will not have our permission to consider your complaint and so will only be able to do so in very limited circumstances. For example, if the Financial Ombudsman Service believes that the delay was as a result of exceptional circumstances.
