Why Picking a Provider Displaying a CFSA Member Seal Is Important


To find a CFSA Member in your

We want to make it easy for you to choose a payday advance provider that demonstrates responsible lending practices and ensures strong consumer protections. Looking for the CFSA member seal is your guarantee that the company adheres to a set of industry-leading Best Practices, developed to ensure customers are treated ethically and responsibly. CFSA members are required to prominently display the CFSA Member Seal and industry Best Practices in all store locations and to provide the CFSA Best Practices Brochure to all new customers.
