Applying with Credit24

Can I apply for a Credit24 loan if I am unemployed?

How does personalised interest rate work?

The interest rate on your loan depends on your credit history and your financial situation and this can range from 24% to 48% per annum.

What are the Credit24 Line of Credit fees?

There are no fees for applying or using your Line of Credit. Having the account open doesn’t cost you anything. You can withdraw more money or pay back your balance at any time without any fees. You’ll only pay the interest (24% – 48% per annum) on the money you have withdrawn down from your Line of Credit.

 

Why should I choose Line of Credit?

The main benefits of a Line of Credit are accessibility and flexibility. The funds can be withdrawn very easily and can be used for whatever purpose you need it to serve. You can also make extra repayments on your account at any time, which can save you in interest. Also, there are no fees for having the account open.

What is a Line of Credit?

A Line of Credit is a flexible loan. When you apply, you will be given an account limit, which you can choose to use all in one go or as little as you need. You’ll only pay interest for the balance you’ve withdrawn. You can withdraw more money from your available balance at any time without having to fill in another application. Log in here to see your available balance or make a withdraw.

How can I make additional repayments?

Any additional payments are applied to your balance, your regular repayments continue to be debited as per normal.

How much do I need to pay back? What are the repayments?

Your minimum repayment amount is calculated based on the amount you have withdrawn from your available balance. This is automatically spread over 36 months. Sometimes the repayable amount over 36 months is less than $10, if this is the case for you, your repayment amount will be $10. This means you will pay off the balance quicker, saving you interest.

What is the repayment term?

By default, your repayments are spread over a maximum of 36 months. Each new draw will recalculate over a 36 month period and your repayment amount will change to reflect this. 

How much can I withdraw?

The minimum withdraw amount is $50, and the maximum amount is your available credit limit.
