What is the purpose of the sliders on HOME page, HOW IT WORKS page and ABOUT US page?
The sliders on the HOME page, HOW IT WORKS page and ABOUT US page are for your information regarding how the Interest & Fees varies as the borrowing amount and the repayment date varies.

How does QuickCredit.in justify the higher Interest & Fees compared to the market?
People need small, short-term money instantly for temporary situations in their daily life. And there is an unfilled gap in the market catering to borrowers seeking instant cash loans. QuickCredit.in is here to help you with instant money when you need it the most! The borrowers are willing to pay premium for simple, quick and flexible service. We do agree that our annual Interest & Fees is high but you need to acknowledge the fact that our instant cash loan is only for short-term (1-30 days). Comparing our short-term instant cash loans with other loans in the market is not fair. It is a bit like trying to plan a short vacation at a luxury hotel, using the theoretical cost if you were planning to stay all year.
What does QuickCredit.in have to say to the borrowers about short-term instant money?
We are here to help you with instant money when you need it the most! But, do remember that Interest & Fees is calculated on a daily basis, the maximum repayment period is 30 days, there is no part repayment and there is no loan extension. The good thing is you can pay anytime you want to. You only pay for "what you use". The faster you repay, the lesser is the Interest & Fees. For ex: A. 20000 for 10 days = You repay 22000; Clear the loan early and apply for loan again. For 30 days (10 days * 3 times) = You repay 20000+(2000*3) = 26000. This way the Interest & Fees is less. B. 20000 for 30 days = You repay 28000; Clearly the Interest & Fees is high. So remember all these before you apply as we expect you to adhere to the repayment date. If you are not sure/comfortable with our terms and service, please do not apply in the first place.
What happens if the borrower doesn’t repay the loan within the maximum repayment period of 30 days?
We would make all possible efforts from our side to recover the loan. First, we would try reaching you via mobile, mail, etc.… post which we would make further attempts to contact you and discuss the situation. We would leverage your social profile by reaching out to all possible contacts and we would initiate all legal procedures to recover the money from the defaulter. Having said that, we will do our best to reach a solution and come to an arrangement. Also, the recovery costs and arrears will add up to all your upfront costs. Finally, your QuickCredit.in trust rating will take a knock and you probably won't be able to borrow from us again. None of these things are worth the risk. So, if you are not sure/comfortable with our terms and service, please do not apply in the first place.
