When can I apply?

It is an online service and can receive loan applications 24/7.

Am I eligible for a loan?

If you’re 18, an Australian resident and can afford to repay it, then you’re eligible for a loan with us.

What if I'm on government benefits?

You need to be employed and demonstrate a regular income stream to be eligible for a loan. It’s OK if you receive some form of Government benefits however it can’t be your primary source of income.

Are there any credit checks?

In most cases, we will carry out a credit check during the Application process but that doesn’t mean that if you have had problems in the past we’ll automatically reject your Application. We’re more interested in your recent history and your current capacity to repay the loan.

What’s the minimum information I need to provide?

We need to do a few things: we need to verify you are who you say you are; we need to do some basic credit enquiries; and we need to check you can afford the loan you’re asking for. In the past, this would take days to complete, however recent advances in technology have allowed us to carry out these enquiries totally online, in a secure manner. During the Application process we will ask to enter the following information:

-Your Driver’s Licence Number or your Medicare Card number.
-A valid mobile phone number that is capable of receiving an SMS.
-Your Banking details.

Why do you ask me to enter my internet banking details?

Ultimately, this will help us ensure that you do not fall into difficulties in making the repayments due under a loan or incurring further costs and charges.

Who sees my internet banking log-in details?

No person can access your internet banking details. When you enter your banking credentials on our website they are immediately encrypted. The encrypted details are then passed by Perfect Data Solutions Limited to Yodlee. They are stored in a highly secure data centre which has a single use, to generate a read-only data-feed which we will use to assess the affordability of the loan.

What happens to my internet banking details after I enter them on your website?

As an organisation, security of data and prevention of fraud are fundamental to us. We are committed to using practices to ensure that our services are provided within a secure environment. Your internet banking details are encrypted and held securely by our professional service providers. Our partner, Perfect Data Solutions Limited, Yodlee and us, are permitted read- only access to your current account, so will only ever be able to view your account. We do not have the ability to change any of your banking details or set up standing orders/direct debits. All data is securely handled in accordance with data protection laws and our privacy policy.

What happens to the bank statements we obtain?

They will be used by us to make lending decisions about you and stored by us as long as necessary to assist us in managing your account. It will be also stored by Perfect Data Solutions Limited and Yodlee.

What will my bank say about me entering my log-in details into your website?

We would recommend that you review the Terms and Conditions of your internet banking provider. Before you decide to submit your banking credentials, we stress that security is of paramount importance, we would especially mention that:

-Your data is encrypted in transit.
-We do not have any functionality over your bank account
-We only have access to a read-only service.
