Frequently asked questions

What type of financing is offered?
Credova is partnered with a network of merchants to provide you financing through a Merchant-originated unsecured retail installment sales contract (RISCs) or closed-end consumer lease agreements. Your financing product will be determined by your state of residency, credit approval and your selection.
What is the difference between a RISC, an Installment Loan, and a Closed-End Consumer Lease Agreement?
With a RISC and Installment, you are purchasing the item and agreeing to make installment payments over a specific term plus any associated interest rate. RISCs are made by the merchant and an installment loan is made by a bank or other lender. A closed-end consumer lease agreement doesn’t have an interest rate, but rather charges monthly leasing fees. With a closed-end consumer lease, you are leasing the item(s) from a lessor and have the option to purchase the item during the course of the lease.
What are the leasing fees?
If you choose to accept a closed-end consumer lease offer, you will make a monthly lease payment. These fees represent the amount charged by the lessor for allowing you to lease an item(s) and will vary depending on customer approval information. Please review your offer(s) carefully prior to completing your agreement.
What is the interest rate?
The interest rate is the amount charged, as a percentage of principal, by a retailer to a customer for the ability to pay for an item over time. This is often expressed over an annual basis commonly referred to as the annual percentage rate (APR). The system considers more than just your credit score, and your interest rate will vary based on the information you provide. Please review your offer(s) carefully prior to completing your agreement.
Am I locked into financing for the full term?
Not at all. Whether you have a RISC or an installment loan, you can payoff your balance at anytime and there are never any prepayment penalties. If you have a closed-end consumer lease agreement, you can exercise your early buyout option at any time.
How easy is it to apply?
Very easy! Prequalifications only require basic information and you can receive a decision in seconds.
How much will I be approved for?
Depending on your application details, you can be approved for offers up to $5,000.
If I have bad credit, will I be declined?
Credova considers all credit types in the approval process. Keep in mind, there is no hard credit inquiry, so applying won’t affect your credit score.
How often are payments made?
Payments are required at minimum once a month on your scheduled due date. Your final payment scheduled will be included in your agreement.
When will my purchase be shipped to me?
For shipping timing, tracking, and terms, please review the retailer’s policies.
How much do I have to pay today?
Depending on the type of financing selected, you may be required to complete your first payment at the time of signature whereas other financing products will not require a payment for at least 30 days. You will be told of any such payment before you agree to financing. If required, you will be able to complete your first payment at checkout.
What if I need to return my purchase?
If you need to make a return, reach out to the merchant you purchased from to determine their return policy. Please see your agreement for more information about returns and your financing.
