Oregon Payday Loans

Like 23 other states, Oregon has specific regulations in place to address payday lending. In 2006, these regulations tightened in an effort to better protect consumers. A cap was placed on origination fees and interest rates. Borrowers are no longer allowed to take out more than one loan at a time. Consumers must also wait one business day to take out a new cash advance loan if they have renewed three times prior. There are no provisions in Oregon law that state whether payday lenders have a right to criminal or private proceedings against defaulted borrowers.  Two cities in Oregon where you can find payday lenders include Portland and Salem.

Maximum Principal

The amount of principal cannot exceed 25 percent of the consumer's gross income for the month.

Length of Loan

Loan terms can vary between 31 and 60 days.


Borrowers can extend or rollover payday loans up to three times.


Issuing and renewing cash advance loans cannot exceed 36 percent in interest. Lenders can, however, charge an origination fee of $10 per $100 borrowed, and are able to charge a non-sufficient fund fee of up to $25.


The annual interest rate cannot be above 36 percent, but $10 per $100 can also be tacked on as an origination fee.
