About Payday Loans


Payday loans are short-term loans designed to help you cover utility bills, unexpected car repairs and other emergency expenses by your next payday. Unlike an installment loan, the balance of a payday loan is generally due in full by your next pay date.

Payday loans are available online and in-store in the states below. If approved, the amount you may borrow will depend upon your income and our standard underwriting criteria.1

Online

In-Store

Yes. Each customer is treated individually, and each spouse can apply separately for a loan.

ACE Cash Express may obtain information from a non-traditional consumer reporting agency and the inquiry may affect your overall credit profile with the applicable agency, but it will not impact your FICO® score.  

A FICO Score, created by Fair, Isaac and Company, is a type of credit score used by some lenders to help them make credit-related decisions. FICO Scores are based solely on the information in consumer credit reports maintained by the three major credit bureaus — Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. By comparing your credit information to the patterns in hundreds of thousands of past credit reports, a FICO Score estimates your level of future credit risk.

Hard credit report inquiries to Experian, Equifax and TransUnion can negatively affect your FICO Score, especially if there are many in a short amount of time. At ACE Cash Express, we may obtain information from a non-traditional consumer reporting agency and the inquiry may affect your overall credit profile with the applicable agency, but it will not impact your FICO score.

Payments and Cancellation Information


Your payday loan will generally be due on your next payday (loan duration is state-specific). You will be informed of the due date if your loan is approved.

Online

Automatic Payment

The amount you owe will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the day your loan is due (also called an ACH payment). If you prefer that your payment not be automatically withdrawn from your bank account, you may make a payment by one of the other options below.

Pay Online

You may also make a payment online by logging into your loan account at www.myacepayments.com.

Pay Over the Phone

You may also make a payment by phone using our 24/7 automated phone system by calling (866) 728-1808 or by calling Customer Service at (877)-ACE-CASH between 7:00 AM and 8:00 PM Central Time Monday  ̶  Friday, 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM Central Time Saturdays, or 10:30 AM and 7:00 PM Central Time Sundays. Fees may apply.

Pay In-Store

Depending on your state, you may also visit an ACE Cash Express location near you to make a payment. 

And, remember, there’s no penalty for repaying early.

In-Store

To pay off a loan originated in a store, go to the store where the loan was originated with cash on or before each due date. There’s no penalty for repaying early.

In some states, you also have the option to pay online or by phone.

There is no prepayment penalty in any state. If you repay your loan in full at any time, you will only be responsible for accrued interest and fees on the outstanding principal through the date of repayment. In Texas, paying off a payday loan early will not reduce your CSO fee.

Loans at ACE come with a 72-hour satisfaction guarantee. So if you change your mind about your loan, just return the principal within 72 hours and pay nothing more.

Online

To cancel your online loan, please send an email to internetops@acecashexpress.com with a request to cancel your contract or call us at (877)-ACE-CASH.

For loans originated in Texas, you can also mail or deliver a signed and dated copy of the cancellation notice provided with your Credit Services Agreement, or other written notice, to:

ACE Cash Express

Attn: General Counsel

300 E. John Carpenter Fwy, Ste. 900

Irving, Texas, 75062

Please include your name and loan number with the cancellation. Once we receive your notice, we will transfer the principal directly from your bank account. The written notice must be postmarked within three days of signing the contract.

In-Store

To cancel your loan, you must return the proceeds from your loan to the store where your loan was originated. Depending on your state, you may also be required to sign a cancellation notice that was provided to you at the time of approval.

Depending on your state, you also may be eligible to refinance your payday loan, whether originated online or in one of our stores. You also may be eligible for a payment plan! Call us at 866 355-6815 to discuss payment plan options.
