I have a question about minimum payments for financing. Been trying to pay atleast double the minimum payment a month. But thinking of just paying the minimum and use the other double as a savings to buy a 600 straight out cash. Would paying minimum still build credit or would it make it worse? I financed through kawa credit card. Love riding a 600 but still love my 300 so I want both lol



Thanks!

if youre starting your credit from scratch or its just really low, even minimum payments will raise it. but if your credit score is almost perfect, sticking with the minimum will either keep it the same or lower it a small amount. just dont be late and youre all good.

Credit lenders like to see open lines of credit and loans open for a minimum of one year. This is where you'll need to start if you're new to credit. Lenders don't see double payments, all they see is payment history. But, it's really up to you in what way to spend your money. Get at least a min. of one year credit history, being a credit card or loan, and lenders will start giving better rates. Also, like what was mentioned earlier, do not be late on your payment history. This will have a severe effect on your credit score. By late I mean, 30 days after the due date, this is when it will show up on your credit report.
