 Nope.Thats why they advertise "no credit,bad credit OK"..However they will want to see your pay stub and/or bank statement.I don't know your situation,but I'd suggest trying other options because their interest rate is ridiculously high.

I would try a secured loan through my bank, exhaust all other options first.

The reason they do not pull credit is that their interest rate is so ridiculously high that those who do pay back on time are paying more than enoigh to subsidize the borrowers who do not pay.

 

In addition, they make it very difficult to be a borrower who does not pay.  You generally have to write them a post-dated check or give them an authorization to debit the funds from your bank account.  So unless you zero the balance on that account, they will get their money.

 

It is not uncommon for people who take out payday loans to get stuck in a vicious circle where the payday loan's debit causes an overdraft, which they then need another payday loan to cope with.

 

So please do, by all means, consider them a solution of absolute last resort.

 

This diagram from Pew Research is an excellent summayr of how these loans often play out, and also offers a variety of alternatives that could be explored.
