What are the costs of using LoanStreet?

We want to be able to help as many entrepreneurs, accountants and administration offices as possible. That is why LoanStreet always works on a no cure no pay basis. That means that we only get paid if we manage to realize a deal for you. Sometimes you do not have to pay anything, even in case of success, because we have arranged with the financier that he pays us a fee in case of success.

Regardless of who pays, the best choice is at the top of the comparison you receive, regardless of the reimbursement we receive. You can also sort the comparison yourself for, for example, the chance of success or costs.
