No Credit Check Loan

Getting a loan with no credit check online is actually easier than ever for some, due to the easing of creditors and technology.


Those who wish to obtain a loan in such a way which is both convenient and leads to faster approval times will see that there are plenty of options available.

Quebec OPC has already given at least 233 permits to both businesses that offer loans and the ability to do so online. A quick search online will help showcase which lenders are available for you. 

Do keep in mind that when obtaining a loan in such a way that you should still do your initial research and that not every lender in Quebec can offer them with no credit check in this way.

Hopefully, through this article, we’ll help you get on the right path to getting such a loan and answer any queries you may have. 

How do financial organizations do background checks in this instance? 

So how can these institutions confirm their credit risk or worthiness without actually looking into it? First, they still obtain certain information from those applying for a loan, such as their address, name and other initial details. In the past, they looked to third-party data collection companies such as TransUnion or Equifax. 

Yet those who are actually lending out the funds, the institutions themselves, are starting to feel that the data coming from these sources may not always be the best and have started to develop their own internal systems to verify the information and their scoring system. To help with these systems, lenders will also begin to look for additional information and then ask for consent for something that is being referred to as an instant bank verification or IBV directly on their site online.  

Key differences between credit bureaus and IBV. 

When it comes to using IBV, the lender will only use information related to their banking. After a potential borrower consents, the lender will look at their banking information and activity. They will look at cashflows as well. Then the lender will use their own scoring system to come up with the final decision of whether to extend credit to the applicant or deny it altogether. 

Lenders in Canada will use third-party services to assist with IBV, such as Flinks, who offer their services to any licensed lender who wants to go the IBV approach. The tech provided helps send lenders the information necessary to begin their analysis. 

Using credit bureau information doesn’t consider banking information but how borrowers handle their credit and consistent repayment. 

Risks associated with borrowing without the use of credit checks. 

To be fair, when it comes to anything related to financial products, there are always going to be inherent risks. This is simply a different approach to looking at someone’s ability to repay debts with current banking activities versus their past credit usage. It’s always a good idea to seek information from experts.

Considerations to have before signing the contract for the loan.

There are a few areas to verify when reviewing the loan contract before ultimately signing it. 

Confirming the OPC Permit

The first item to look for is to confirm that the lender you’re working with has the actual relevant permit directly from the OPC. Verification is one thing, but you should also ensure that the permit’s still valid and hasn’t reached its expiration date. Also, validate the registered business name on the permit with the lender’s name. 

Associated fees and interest rate

Another area to review is to see what the actual interest rate will be. It’s actually required by the law that there needs to be transparency about what the annual rate will be set as. So it needs to be in the contract clearly and if there are going to be fees on top of that the agreement needs to state those fees as well.

What about alternatives to these types of loans? 

The main reason people even consider this loan type is because the overall process is much faster, and that means funds are received faster as well. Yet if you need other alternatives, they are also possible. 

One alternative is to use the cash advance feature on your card to get necessary funds sooner, but do keep in mind that there could be additional costs or higher interest rates when going down this route. 

You can also consider traditional channels for credit, such as using your home to obtain a home loan or a personal loan as well. You can make use of the funds toward whatever you wish without the need to always disclose that information. You might get better interest rates but the process may not be as fast so go with the route that works best with your current situation. That means if it’s a financial emergency, work with getting funds faster, but know that you will have alternatives you may be able to use later on.
