FairMoney and the CMA Final Report into Payday Lending

Fair price comparison sites are a force for good, says CMA

Payday borrowers will get a fairer deal from price comparison websites, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said today.

In a landmark report, the authority called for at least one price comparison website to show customers the true cost of borrowing from the payday industry.

The CMA has recommended to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) that accredited Price Comparison Websites (PCWs) should make the consumer loans market better for the customer. In addition to this, the CMA has also recommended that all online payday lenders register with at least one accredited PCW, so that customers are able to get a clear and informed choice

FairMoney™ offers a payday loan comparison service to customers of all credit ratings 

Earlier this month, FairMoney launched with the aim of doing exactly that, and already has a specific section that shows payday loans, so that customers with a poor credit history can find the best payday loans for their circumstances. 

FairMoney is the industry answer to the problem of a lack of clear information on consumer loan products and sales practices that damage customers credit history. The FairMoney™ loan comparison website is run on the principle of fairness to the consumer and has an approved lenders panel that includes payday lenders.

  • FairMoney requires members of its lending panel to be completely transparent about costs
  • FairMoney offers a footprint free credit check
  • FairMoney updates information in real time
  • FairMoney does not work with lead generators
  • FairMoney does not allow advertising from any unapproved lenders, affiliates or lead generators onsite 

When discussing the FCA's recommendations, Dr Roger Gewolb, founder of FairMoney™, said: 

“FairMoney has been waiting for this moment. when it becomes a regulation, we will truly have the ability to protect our customers and eject unfair lenders
