We are a responsible lender
Cash Converters practices responsible lending to ensure our customers receive the financial help that they need for their financial circumstances.
We're here to help make sure your cash loan is right for you. We closely look at the information you have provided in your application as well as enquire about why you need the cash loan, how much you need to borrow and if you have any other existing debt. In addition, we'll need you to provide proof of ID, proof of address and proof of your income and expenses.
If approved, it's importatnt to know exactly where you stand with your loan repayments. We keep the loan and repayment structure nice and clear by explaining exactly what you have to pay and by when.
Unlike most lenders, Cash Converters bear the entire risk associated with our small loans. This means customers do not provide any form of security.
Our model works to make sure our customers have capacity to repay their loans.

NOTE: The cost of credit for a Cash Converters loan will never exceed the principal amount borrowed. This means if you borrow a principal amount of $500, the maximum you will pay back will never exceed $1,000 ($500 principal + $500 in interest/fees).
Annual Interest Rate (AIR)
The Annual Interest Rate makes short-term loans sound unmanageable and daunting but in reality, they are just like any other loan. To put your mind at ease, here is a breakdown of how the AIR is calculated and how interest is applied to a Cash Converters loan.
Personal Loan AIR of 144% ÷ 365 = 0.39% daily. This is the real interest rate you are charged.
- Interest rates are fixed for the term of the loan. The faster you can pay off your loan, the less interest you will have to pay.
- Interest charges are calculated daily and applied monthly to the oustanding loan balance.
- In the event of a default, no default interest is payable.
Our loans are simple to understand. To show you just how simple they are, you can view a sample of our standard form credit contracts.
