Does QuickQuid Offer Instant Payday Loans?
There is really no such thing as an "instant payday loan", but we can get close. Most loans require an application and approval process. At QuickQuid our application usually takes a few minutes to fill out. You will be presented with a full decision, there is no longer any need for someone to send additional verification details for extra checks after they submitted their application. Once you have submitted your application, lenders will run their standard checks which may take up to 30 minutes in most cases. While that doesn't qualify as an instant cash loan, we think that a few minutes from application to money in their bank is convenient for our customers.

What Do People Mean By "Instant Loan"?
Although "instant" means immediately, we believe most people understand that there is a short delay from the moment the applicant clicks submit an their application form, until the money is paid into their bank account. It is a length of that delay which defines whether a loan is instant are not. In 2016, we conducted a survey (256 replies) to find out what people expected when they applied for an instant loan. Here are the key points from the experiment:
Customers would not match the word instant to the loan, if the whole process lasted more than 30 minutes. They referred to the as fast or quick, but would not describe that as instant.
Applicants anticipated a continuous process, understanding that there would be no interruptions for human input. They understood their applications to be promptly assessed, and the decisions communicated to them while they were still on the web page. If approved, they also expected the process of transferring the money to the bank to commence immediately.
Seventy-eight percent of applicants expressed satisfaction with a delayed payout of up to 6 hours, as long as the decision was provided instantly. They considered the decision to be the most crucial aspect of the application. As long as they were assured of receiving the cash, applicants were content with the process.
All of the loans available through QuickQuid, match the criteria for what our respondents described as "instant".
"These types of loans are designed to cater to the needs of individuals seeking clarity. Lenders will provide a direct and swift decision online within 2 minutes of receiving the applicant's details. Although the applicant has the option to decline the offer, if approved, the lender commits to proceeding with the loan based on the information provided by the borrower.
Upon receiving the application, the lender will verify the details through third-party databases, including the major Credit Reference Agencies. If they determine that the borrower can afford the repayments, they may choose to make an offer that aligns with the borrower's request or closely approximates it.
All the checks conducted on our site are soft checks, not hard credit checks. Borrowers are initiating a search to determine the loan amount and interest rates they qualify for. Technically, this is not considered a credit application; it is referred to as a soft check. If you decide to proceed and accept the loan, a hard credit check will then be recorded on your credit record."

Sorry, we are no longer allowed to take applications over the phone. It is a service that the former owners of QuickQuid used to allow until 2016. Unfortunately for us, it is something that would cost too much for us to provide at the moment. If we are able to obtain our license to once again start lending directly, it is a feature that we would like to return.
Surprisingly, loans have always been instant. Doorstep lenders and loan sharks have always offered an instant service. If you mean, when did mainstream loans become instant, that was 2005. Around that time there was a fundamental change in the way banks would send money to each other, money could be sent instantly instead of having to wait 4 days. Lenders like QuickQuid and Wonga etc started to appear online in the UK and changed the way consumers borrowed money for ever. All of a sudden, the borrower didn’t need a prior relationship with their borrower. All borrowers had to do was start up the computer (or phone), apply and money would be in their bank account instantly.
The banks have to take the credit though, if they hadn't changed to the faster payments syustem in 2005, there would never have been any QuickQuid, SlowQuid maybe.
No, there isn’t. The main reason for this is that although the decision can be given instantly online, it would take time for the Credit Card to be sent through the post to the borrower.
Do we ever foresee a time when Credit Cards could become instant? That’s a good question, with the speed technology has moved over the last 16 years, we would never rule anything out.
