The Community Financial Services Association of America (CFSA) today launched a new video series about its Best Practices for responsible lending in the payday advance industry.
On a rolling basis over the next several weeks, CFSA will highlight one of its 13 Best Practices as part of an education campaign that explains how CFSA is ensuring responsible conduct among its members and protecting borrowers’ rights.

“For over a decade, CFSA has enforced a mandatory set of Best Practices that guide how our member companies operate and set the standard for the payday advance industry," said D. Lynn DeVault, CFSA's Board Chair. "We want payday advance customers to know that when they go to our members’ stores and see the CFSA Best Practices and the CFSA Membership Seal, they will receive important consumer protections that may not be available elsewhere. We are proud to offer these CFSA Best Practices, and we are proud of our member companies for abiding by them.”
As the largest trade association representing storefront payday lenders, CFSA works to ensure member companies hold themselves to a higher standard of responsible service and to help customers make informed financial decisions. In fact, CFSA’s strict set of Best Practices are guidelines that we believe the entire payday advance industry should follow.
