How Does Buy Here, Pay Here Work?

In a typical car buying experience, an interested buyer will meet with a dealership's finance center who then reaches out to local lending agencies to secure an auto loan on the buyer's behalf.

This generally is advantageous for the buyer as the dealership usually has a well-established network of lenders to secure a wide range of options.

On the other hand, in a Buy Here, Pay Here program the dealership assumes the role of the lender, setting up a direct payment plan with the buyer. In many cases, the dealership won't even take a buyer's credit score into account, rather relying on things like proof of income and a down payment.

While at first this might appear to be an enticing alternative, buyers should remain fully aware of the BHPH program's guidelines and expectations, as they usually don't provide as much choice as a traditional auto loan. BHPH programs are also fully controlled by the dealership, meaning they control the payment schedule and interest rate.

In some situations, your monthly interest rate might be as high as 20% with payments expected to be made bi-weekly or even on a weekly basis. Keep in mind, as the program's name suggests, you'll also have to make each payment in-person at the dealership.
