Payday loans are short-term loans that give you a small amount of cash with the agreement that you’ll pay it back, along with additional fees, at your next paycheck. Although they may seem like an easy way to get fast money, they can quickly pull you into a cycle of debt.
Some of the biggest disadvantages to payday loans are the high interest rates and short repayment terms. If you aren’t able to pay back your debt in full on the due date, which is usually within 14 days or by your next paycheck, the lender will likely encourage you to roll the debt over into a new loan. More fees and excessive interest charges are tacked on with each rollover, which can quickly grow into a massive amount of debt.
Additionally, if you default on your payday loan, you risk your debt being sent to collections. This can negatively impact your credit and make it more difficult to obtain loans in the future.

Depending on your unique financial situation, consolidation could help you overcome your payday loan debt. However, consolidating isn’t the best for everyone. You may want to consider debt consolidation if any of the following are true:
You're paying too much interest or are stuck making only minimum payments

You miss payments or you can’t afford both your monthly payments and basic needs
