What is Daily Simple Interest?
Interest on a daily simple interest loan is calculated by using the daily simple interest method. This means that interest accrues on a daily basis on the amount of the loan (current outstanding principal balance) from the date the interest charges begin until you repay the loan. The daily simple interest method counts the number of days between the date your last payment is received and the date your current payment is received. To avoid paying additional interest, you should regularly and consistently make your standard monthly payment amount on or before your payment due date.
