What information do you look at to decide if a customer qualifies for a Best Egg loan?
We consider the information they provide on their loan application and credit profile reported by credit bureaus—which includes credit score, and how much money they owe compared to how much money they earn (debt-to-income ratio).
What fees are associated with a loan?
Each Best Egg loan offer has a fixed Annual Percentage Rate (APR) which is the interest rate plus an origination fee. Rates are based on the information in their application, credit profile, and the terms of the loan. The origination fee is a one-time fee that is deducted from the loan proceeds deposited in your customer’s bank account.
