How can I apply for a payday loan with Easy Payday?

How are the loan funds sent to me?

The amount of credit that you can borrow will be wholly based upon your personal circumstances, you can apply for our maximum loan $1000 but your chances of being accepted are higher if you choose an amount $500 or less. Please see our charges page for more information.

 

Who can get a loan?

Each payday loan lender will have their own qualifying criteria, but some elements stay the same across the board. For example, you must be aged 18 years of over to apply for a payday loan, you must be able to provide proof of your identification and you must have an active bank account, which can accept direct debits

 

What information do I need to provide?

We need to take your standard personal information during the loan application to verify who you are, help match you to a loan lender who is appropriate for your circumstances. 

 

Will a poor credit history affect my application?

Yes! No matter what your credit score you can still apply for a payday loan through us. Many lenders do not check your credit file and this is due to the short term nature of the loan. Because you will be expected to re-pay your loan after a maximum period of 45 days, many lenders are only interested in your current circumstances, rather than how well you have re-paid credit in the past.

 

How are the loans repaid?

The payday loan needs to be repaid on your before the agreed payment date in your contract. The amount will be debited from your account on that agreed payment date. 

 

I am having problems repaying my loan - what should I do?

If you are aware that you will be unable to re-pay all or some of your loan then you must contact your lender as soon as possible. Lenders are aware that people’s circumstances change, sometimes without prior warning and they will therefore work hard to help you. The worst thing that you can do is not let the creditor know and bury your head in the sand. Taking out a loan is a serious endeavour and you must not do so if you know that you will not be able to pay the money back.

 

Is Easy Payday a direct lender?

EasyPayday.com.au is not a direct lender. We are a leading loan broker website and use the latest technology to help our customer secure payday loans. Our panel of lenders is always increasing meaning your chances to secure a loan may increase.
