At Sunny we believe that, regardless of why you need a loan, you should always shop around to look for a provider who best suits your needs.

It pays to be savvy when applying to borrow money and so if you’re weighing up Quick Quid or Sunny for your short-term loan, we’ve put together a handy comparison guide.

Eligibility for a loan with Sunny or Quick Quid

Eligibility requirements for a short-term or payday loan are often very similar across the industry. To apply for a loan with either Sunny or Quick Quid you must be at least 18 years old, a UK resident and have an active bank account. You must also be employed, with regular income.

Both lenders will also ask you to provide personal information such as your name and home address, a breakdown of your income and outgoings, as well as your bank details, when you apply – this allows lenders to perform a credit check on you.

Both lenders also perform an affordability check based on your current income and outgoings. You can find out more about eligibility for a loan with Sunny via the link below.

Sunny and Quick Quid information hub

You may have some questions around which lender is best for you and what they offer. We’ve tried to answer some of these below, to help when making your decision about where to apply for an emergency loan. If you have any further questions then you can find more information in our full FAQ section.

If you choose Sunny for a short-term loan, you won’t pay a penny in fees. We don’t even charge you a fee if you are late making repayments, whereas Quick Quid will charge a late fee of up to £15. This means more money will be added to your balance and you may end up paying back a higher amount overall.

There is, however, the option to request an extension on your loan repayment date with Quick Quid. You can do this a maximum of two times per loan, and you will be charged the same rate of daily interest for the additional time you have a balance.

Fees such as late repayment charges and additional interest for extending your loan can have a big impact. Though they seem small at first, they can add up over time and make it more difficult for you to repay what you owe.

It is for this reason that we at Sunny have no fees and don’t allow extensions or rollovers. This means that you’ll know exactly what you’re going to pay back in total upfront, and there will be no surprises further down the line.

With both Sunny and Quickquid, you will fill in an online application form which is then assessed by your chosen lender. They will then confirm on whether you’ve been accepted or not. What information they ask for, and how they do it, may be different, though. But, you can rest assured that online loans are designed to be simple, whatever lender you choose.

If you take on a short-term loan with Sunny, we will set up a repayment schedule for you – that’s based on the amount you borrow. All of your payments will be for around the same amount, give or take a few pennies, making them easier to budget for.

If you find that it doesn’t work for you, and you want to repay more quickly, you can choose a different schedule, or make additional one-off payments through your online account, and save money on interest.

If you find that you need longer to repay, we encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as you can - we’ll try to amend your schedule to suit and if you fall behind on a payment we’ll strive to help you get back on track with no fees.

Quick Quid uses a set repayment structure that all their customers follow. You can choose to pay over 1, 2 or 3 repayment periods. Typically, if you select a longer window to pay over, you’ll pay much more in your final instalment which can be difficult to budget for.

Like Sunny, Quick Quid also charge daily interest, so if you’re able to repay your loan early, it will cost you less in interest. However, you must contact their customer support team if you wish to repay early, whereas with Sunny you can manage this for yourself.

This structure, unlike what’s on offer at Sunny, means the loan may not always fit your circumstances and if another unexpected payment occurs further down the line, you might fall behind on your repayments.
