Frequently Asked Questions

Will pre-qualifying affect my credit?

During the application, we do a soft pull on your credit that will not negatively affect your credit score.  Only when you choose an offer to submit for lender approval, does AUTOPAY run a hard pull against your credit which may affect your credit score.

 

How much will adding a co-applicant affect my rate?

Depending on the co-applicant’s credit score, income, and credit history, you could potentially get a better rate than applying on your own.

 

Will rate shopping negatively affect my credit score?

In order to have the lowest impact on your credit score, you should rate shop within a two-week period. Any inquiries for one type of financing done in a two-week period are reported by the credit bureaus as one, as opposed to multiple.

AUTOPAY partners with a network of trusted credit unions and financing institutions across the country. Each lending partner has a different set of criteria for approvals, enabling AUTOPAY to provide financing solutions to all levels of the credit spectrum.
