Program Costs

Credible doesn't charge clients directly for its services. Credible receives fees/comissions from lender and carrier partners.

Personal loans offered on the Credible marketplace range from 7.49% to 35.99% APR. Credible doesn't charge an origination fee on personal loans, but some lenders offered through the platform do. The origination fee varies, but averages between 1% and 8% of the full loan amount.

Mortgage refinancing closing costs and other fees vary by state and lender, but generally total 2% to 6% of the mortgage.

Because Credible's marketplace offers such a large variety of products, many have associated costs listed once you complete prequalification.

Industry Reputation
