Fee Disclosures

Our Cash Advance Loans incur a 20% Establishment Fee and a 4% monthly fee, based on the amount borrowed. For example, a small loan of $100 over 4 weeks has fees and charges totalling $24 (1 x $20 + 1 x $4), resulting in a total repayment of $124. Cash Advance Loans are only available in-store with a minimum loan term of 4 weeks. The maximum term is generally 6 weeks, however is flexible at the discretion of the store.

Our Small Personal Loans incur a 20% Establishment Fee and a 4% monthly fee, based on the amount borrowed. For example, a small loan of $1,000 over 9 months has fees and charges totalling $560 (1 x $200 + 9 x $40), resulting in a total repayment of $1,560. The minimum loan term is 2 months and a maximum of 12 months.

Our Medium Personal Loans incur a $400 establishment fee and interest at 48% per annum. For example, a medium loan of $3,000 borrowed over 1 year would equate to a total amount payable on average of $4,258 (including a $400 establishment fee). The minimum loan term is 4 months and a maximum of 24 months.

Our loans are repayable in weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments. Loans can be settled early with no penalty and fees will only be charged whilst there is an outstanding balance on the loan, hence early settlement will reduce the amount payable on the loan. Loans are subject to assessment criteria and suitability. An APR (Annual Percentage Rate) does not apply to our Cash Advance Loans or Small Personal Loans. The maximum APR on our Medium Personal Loan is 144.02%.
