When we think of a cash advance, most of us think it to be an advance taken out on the basis of your credit card or some via other form of credit instrument. There are severe credit card service providers that offer cash advances to its customers via an ATM where the credit card can be used to get immediate cash advance.

One of the problems associated with credit card cash advances is that the costs of such a borrowing can rapidly add up to a big amount. Also, customers may not even know what all the associated costs of such a cash advance are. Additionally, there may be other charges such as transaction fee levied by the company running the ATM; a fee for using the credit card to take out a cash advance; and penalty charges which may become applicable in case you are unable to repay the cash advance on the credit card bill due date the following month.

All the above shortcomings associated with a credit card advance can be avoided by opting for a payday cash advance.
