You’ll be applying for your monthly plan directly through Square Installments. You’ll also repay your plan through the Installments dashboard.
Can I make early payments?
Absolutely. We do not charge any fees for early payments. You can make a partial or full prepayment at any time, at no additional cost.
Will this affect my credit score?
When you apply for Square Installments, we perform a soft credit check to verify your identity and determine if you are eligible. This soft credit check will not affect your credit score. If you meet this criteria and continue with the application process, then your Experian credit report will include an inquiry from Square Capital, which could affect your credit score.
We will let you know about these different steps as you go through the Square Installments experience.
Are there late fees?
You will never be charged a fee for a late payment. However, we do calculate interest based on your principal balance (how much of the original loan is left to pay off). So, if your payment is late and there is past due principal, interest will be charged against that larger amount.
Your interest rate will never change throughout the loan. And, unlike a credit card, we will never charge compound interest (i.e. interest charged on interest). Interest is only charged on the amount that you originally financed.

Does using SweetPay affect my credit score?

If and when SweetPay lending affiliates make a financing offer to you and should you accept such offer, that lending affiliate will then pull your credit report to process a loan.
What type of credit score do I need to be approved?
SweetPay has multiple lender affiliates that approve a fairly wide range of credit scores, from prime to subprime. While your credit score is an important factor for SweetPay lender affiliates when evaluating your credit application, they look at more than just your score to render a credit decision.
How will I know if I'm approved or declined?
When you submit an application through SweetPay, SweetPay submits your data to our lending affiliates real-time. Within seconds you will know whether one of our lending affiliates approved financing offer(s) for you or not. You will also receive an email notification with the result of our lender affiliates.d.
If I received a financing offer, do I have to accept it?
No. You do not have to accept the offer and can simply cancel the loan process.
Does SweetPay store my personal information?
If I'm approved, how and when do I get my money?
Should you accept the offer, the lending affiliate who approved you will work directly with you to finalize the loan document and then deposit the funds via ACH directly into your designated account. This is usually done within 24 hours, so you can make arrangements to use your financing at one of SweetPay’s member stores.
