What we offer
Nifty offers three types of personal loans which can be used to cover a wide range of expenses. Whether you need help with medical expenses, car repairs, vet bills or the like, we might be able to provide the funding you need! Here’s the basic breakdown of our three loan products:
|Small||$300 – $2,000||3 – 6 months||Unsecured|
|Medium||$2,001 – $4,600||13 – 24 months||Secured|
|Large||$5,000||13 – 24 months||Secured|
It’s free to apply for a loan with Nifty, but standard fees and rates will apply should you be approved for your loan. For more details on the costs associated with our personal loans, see our costs page or get in touch!
Cash in 60 seconds!
When you borrow with Nifty Loans, we want to make your life simpler. Cut down the hassle and get straight to the point. So, when you complete an application with us, our team could have an outcome for you in as little as 60 minutes. Better yet, if you’re approved for a loan with us then we could deliver the money straight to your account in just 60 seconds*. Yes, you read that correctly! For most customers, we can have the cash in their bank in only 60 seconds once the loan contract has been signed.
Should I apply for a secured loan?
Ultimately, it depends on how much you wish to borrow. A secured personal loan requires an asset as collateral for the loan and typically allows you to borrow more money as a result. On the other hand, an unsecured loan doesn’t require security it can offer you less risk and more flexible terms. Inevitably, it just comes down to what you think will work best for you. Nifty will be upfront with all our loan costs regardless of what you choose and our friendly team are prepared to answer any questions you may have. So, just ask!
What if I’m applying for a loan on benefits?
If you are receiving regular Centrelink payments or a pension then you can still apply for a loan with Nifty! While it can be difficult for many people receiving benefits to access finance from traditional lenders – we think differently. In certain situations, we may consider your Centrelink payments as a valid form of income. The key is that they are consistent and you’ve been receiving them for at least 3 months. Even if you’re unsure whether or not your payment will be enough to meet our requirements, we encourage you to apply anyway. After all, it’s free to do so and we’re happy to take a look at your application and see if we can help in any way.
What if I’m applying for a loan with no credit?
Want to apply for a loan with no credit? No problem! Nifty takes a fresh approach to credit. Whether your credit history is good, bad, or non-existent – we can look beyond your score when assessing applications. We’re more interested in understanding your current relationship with money because we understand circumstances change. A negative report on your credit history can last as long as 7 years. In that time, your financial situation could have dramatically changed. So, we’ll look at other factors such as income and employment status when determining your approval for a loan. If you’re unsure, we encourage you to apply and we’ll do our best to help!
Will you contact my employer?
Potentially, yes. In some cases, we will need to contact your employer when investigating your employment status. No need to worry though! Nifty would never disclose your personal information or reasons for applying for a loan. Our loan specialists are highly trained and will be very discrete should they need to speak with your employer. So, you can relax safe in the knowledge that you’re in good hands!
When is the best time to apply for a loan?
Ultimately, there is no ‘best time to apply for a loan’ it all just depends on your personal situation. If you have a big financial obligation to meet then applying for personal finance might help you get on track. However, it’s important to consider your options and what will work best for you. Before applying for a loan with Nifty you may wish to weigh up your monthly outgoings and current financial commitments. By taking the time to look at your situation you’ll be able to see the impact a loan could have. If you apply for a loan online to cover urgent expenses, will you still be able to pay off your other costs?
Nifty can only offer information as a guide. We aren’t financial advisors so these may be factors you have to consider for yourself. That said, if you do have any questions regarding our loan products you can always speak to our friendly team. We will do our best to help you in whatever way we can!
