Fee examples and loan program information prior to and after July 9, 2019 below.

After July 9, 2019

Loans issued by Celtic Bank, a Utah-Chartered Industrial Bank, Member FDIC, located in Salt Lake City, UT. Borrowers can choose to pay over 3, 6, or 12 months with fixed interest rates from 0-30%.* The interest rate and annual percentage rate (APR) are the same. The interest rate may vary based on credit history and other factors. Our 0% rate is available for qualifying applicants who select autopay and choose a 3-month term. Select Square businesses may offer 0% APR for longer terms based on individual credit.

A reduced APR is available when automatic payments are selected during the application process. APR is the only cost associated with Square Installments—no prepayment fees, deferred interest, or service fees. The interest rate never changes throughout the loan term. The product does not charge compound interest (interest charged on interest). Interest is only charged on the amount originally financed.
