Top 6 uses for small loans through Nifty

If you’re looking for finance but don’t know where to start, why not try Nifty? We can offer small loans to cover almost any expense. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the 6 most common uses for small loans with Nifty: 

  • Larger than normal bills: Been hit with roaming charges while overseas, or just gone over your plan in general? Want to just get it paid? We get it! That’s why many people do choose to take a loan for larger than normal bills.
  • Urgent Car repairs: We all dread it. That moment when we turn the key only for nothing to happen. When you need to get your car back on the road ASAP, people turn to Nifty. 
  • Unexpected medical expenses: While we are fortunate to live in a country where many of our health care expenses are either paid for or subsidised by the government, we do sometimes find ourselves in need of unexpected medical expenses.  
  • Impromptu Holidays: One of your friends decided to go to Fiji and elope? It happens! And when it does you won’t want to miss out, so a fast loan may be what you need!
  • White goods: Picture this. It’s the middle of a hot summer. You have all the family over. You open the fridge and notice the light isn’t turning on. Not only that, but your food also isn’t cold anymore. Sometimes, the food in your fridge might cost more than a new fridge itself! In these cases, a white goods loan is something people turn to.
  • Furniture: Had to move at short notice, but need some furniture? No one likes living in an empty house. So if it’s a furniture loan you need, Nifty is there to help!

These are just some common uses, so the list goes on. If you have any queries regarding what we can and can’t accept as a loan purpose, feel free to contact our friendly customer service team.

We’re different – we’re the experts

At Nifty Loans, we want to reach all Australians that are having financial difficulties. We want to make your experience borrowing from us as seamless as possible. Therefore, we use the latest technology to efficiently assess your application and give you the fastest outcome we possibly can. 

We can help give you a boost to improve your cash-flow and sort out some of those pesky bills and unexpected expenses. When it comes to small cash loans, Nifty Loans is your one-stop-shop! We offer a quick application, fast approval and easy repayments. It’s borrowing made simple.

Can I get loans with bad credit?

If you have bad credit or worried about your credit score, you may find yourself Googling ‘small loans no credit check’ – we get it. That’s why we look at more than just your credit score when assessing your application. If you need a service that is hassle-free and has zero paperwork, then we’ll do our best to help you. We understand that things can happen that affect your credit score. Therefore, we take a deeper look into your finances and assess your application based on your current relationship with money. 

When we assess your loan application, we look at your past and present finances, including your income and expenses. So, if you have bad credit – no worries! We do perform credit checks but don’t let that deter you from applying for small fast loans. 

Moreover, we are not like traditional lenders. We won’t determine your eligibility solely on your credit score or credit history. You can always apply for loans with Nifty! We encourage you to apply for the loan you need, and we’ll do our best to help. 

What loans for people on Centrelink are there?

At Nifty Loans, we understand that life sometimes doesn’t always work out as planned and you may need a helping hand to get you back on track.

When you apply with Nifty, we take a realistic look at your finances. If you’re receiving Centrelink payments, we can definitely assess your application. Our team will conduct a thorough and fair assessment to determine whether or not a personal loan is the right option for you. In fact, we could look at your Centrelink benefits as a form of income if you receive it regularly and into a personal bank account. 

Unfortunately, without conducting an assessment we can not give a direct ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer as to approval. That being said, you can be guaranteed that Nifty will do their very best to match you with a loan product that is right for your individual circumstances. 

With us, you can always apply for bad credit loans and Centrelink loans

Do you do credit checks on your loan applications?

Yes, we do credit checks on loan applications! However, here at Nifty, we understand that life doesn’t always go to plan and sometimes unfortunate situations happen. We know that those situations shouldn’t define the rest of your financial life. So, if you meet our minimum requirements we can look beyond bad credit, and take a look at your current relationship with money.

What about loans for the unemployed?

At Nifty, we take our commitment to responsible lending practices very seriously. Therefore, if you’re not receiving a regular income, we cannot approve your application. However, as stated above, if you are receiving accepted Centrelink payments for at least 3-months, then we may be able to help! So, if you’re in need of financial pick-me-up chances are we can help, even if you have bad credit or receive Centrelink.

Loans for pensioners

Reached that coveted golden age of life and now you can finally relax! However, finances may still prove to be a struggle, even after a lifetime of work. That’s where Nifty comes in.

So, whether you want to take a cruise around the Whitsundays or take a trip to see the grandkids, look no further than small personal loans to help boost your funds.

As long as you have a regular income we are more than happy to consider an application from a pensioner. 

Being a responsible lender, it is our duty to ensure that any approved applicant can reasonably pay off the loan without any undue financial stress. So, if we conclude you cannot repay the loan, then we cannot approve your application. The Nifty team will, however, do their very best to get you the best possible outcome.

So apply today for a hassle-free loan experience, and submit an application without attaching pesky zero paperwork. We pull all the info we need to assess your application, electrically!

Nifty’s responsible lending practice

Nifty is proud to be a responsible lender. What does that mean? We adhere to responsible lenders practices, which means we will conduct a thorough yet fair assessment of your loan application. At Nifty, we want to see how you are going to repay your loan and if you can afford the repayments. Further, we want to make sure you can comfortably pay back one of our loan products.

How do I get a small loan fast?

We are very proud of our fast applications. If you want to give your application an extra boost, we can help! Before you begin your application, have this information handy and we promise you’ll be done in a jiffy:

  • Name, address and date of birth;
  • Reason for your loan;
  • Bank account details;
  • My Gov details (if applicable).

Furthermore, before beginning your application, you’ll need to check off our minimum requirements list, make sure you;

  • Are over 18-years old;
  • Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident;
  • Are receiving a regular income into a personal bank account for at least the last 90-days;
  • Have an active mobile number and email address are required

How do I get a small personal loan?

Start your search for a fast personal loan by submitting our quick application. To apply for the loan you need, simply follow these 3 easy steps:

Step One: Submit An Online Application

To begin your application, find our loan calculator located at the top of each Nifty Loans webpage. Select how much you wish to borrow and for how long. Then, choose how often you would like to make repayments over; either weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Once you are happy with your loan terms, click the ‘Apply’ button to finish off the application.

Step Two: We Assess Your Application

During the application, we utilise the latest and safest banking technology to obtain read-only copies of your bank statements in seconds! With this information, our team conducts a thorough income and expenditure assessment to ensure you are able to afford the loan. Once this step has been completed, you will hear from us via SMS and email.

Step Three: Receive Your Funds!

If you are approved and you have reviewed and signed the contract, we’ll transfer your funds. The best part? If you have an NPP-enabled bank account you can receive your money within 60-seconds of signing your contract*! 

Additionally, fund processing times are subject to interbank transfer times. The latest you may receive your money is overnight

No hidden costs!

If your application is approved, all costs will be outlined in your contract. That’s why it’s important to have a good read through your contract before you sign it. To see some examples of our basic costs, head to the bottom of this page. Depending on what type of loan you apply for, other fees and charges may be payable. If you miss a repayment or default on your contract you may be charged additional fees. 

Further, if you are not clear on the fees and charges associated with your loan, please get in contact with our team of loan experts. They’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

How do repayments work?

Here at Nifty Loans, we like to make life as easy and simple as we can and it’s no different when it comes to repayments.

Your payments will be automatically deducted from your nominated bank account via either direct debit or manually transferred on agreed terms. If you wish, we can arrange these deductions so they are in line with your pay schedule. Once the loan is paid out the direct debits will automatically stop. It can’t get any simpler than that! The only thing you need to worry about is ensuring the funds are available in your account on your repayment day.

If you have trouble with your repayments or you can’t afford a repayment, make sure to get in touch with our friendly customer service team 24 hours in advance. We are more than happy to help you out. 

Committed To Quality Service
