You can apply for with Nifty from $2,100 up to $5,000 and repay it over 13 to 24 months. Sounds perfect, right? It’s just what some people need to get a head-start on their latest venture, whether it be for business or pleasure! But before we launch into secured loans, we’d better introduce ourselves.
Introducing Nifty Loans
We are a neo-lender that is dedicated to providing easy finance for all Australians. We think finance should be accessible, not privileged. That’s why we offer easy finance to anyone who is looking to boost their funds. Whether you’re looking for a small investment into a side hustle or maybe an upgrade to your bathroom; we can provide the finance. Our loan process is 100% online and has zero paperwork! And more good news, our loan application only takes minutes to complete. That’s it! Easy, right?
What is a secured personal loan?
A secured personal loan is merely a personal loan that is backed by equity such as a motorbike, car (new or used), caravan or boat. Our medium and large loans range from $2,100 up to $5,000 and you repay secured loans over 13 to 24 months. All personal loans above $2,001 are considered secured and must be backed by security. We are upfront about all loan costs because we don’t want you to apply for a secured loan if you cannot risk the security. So, if you’re looking for a smaller loan, we offer those too!
What is an unsecured personal loan?
An unsecured personal loan is a personal loan that doesn’t have to be backed up security. Nifty unsecured loans start from $300 and go up to $2,000, and must be repaid over a 3 to 6 month period. Are you a bit of a commitment-phobe? Then, unsecured loans might just be your perfect match. Without a need for security, our unsecured loans are easy to repay with flexible loan terms. When it comes to the unexpected, Nifty Loans is prepared to help get you back on track.
Who is eligible?
As it happens, those who qualify are also eligible for an unsecured loan! We’d love to provide easy finance for all Australians; however, we also adhere to responsible lending practices, so we have a few little requirements to meet before applying for a secured loan:
- Must be over 18 years old
- Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
- Be receiving a regular income into a personal account for the last 3 months
- Have an active mobile number and email address
And that’s it. Just those four little requirements and you qualify. It’s that easy. So, if you’re looking for a helping hand, scroll up and apply for our secured loans!
What to have handy when you apply
We want to give our clients every tool so they can succeed. That’s why we provide flexible loan terms, accessible customer service, and all the right info to have handy to fast track our application process. If you have these details handy, your secured loan application will fly by:
- Personal contact details, e.g. mobile number and email address
- Reason for your loan
- Bank account details
- MyGov details (for Centrelink customers)
- Employment info
If you have these details handy before you begin your application, you will be able to fly through the application! Scroll up to find out.

That’s it. Just three parts to our loan process. And we do most of the legwork. Want to get started now? That’s easy, just scroll up!
No hidden costs
We believe that honesty is the best policy. You can find our costs on our website, however, you can find them again at the bottom of this page for the following loans:
- Small personal loans: unsecured personal loans $300 to $2,000
- Medium personal loans: $2,100 to $4,600

Some loan types may have other payable fees and charges. If you do miss a repayment on your loan, there may be additional fees that apply. To find out more about fees and charges for loans, feel free to give our customer service team a call or pop an email in. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
Easy peasy repayments
After some simplicity in life? Well, you’re in luck as our secured loan repayments are easy and hassle-free. We use the latest in safe banking technology to set up automatic repayments via direct debit. Yes, you read that correctly. Our repayments are 100% automatic! No need to set hundreds of reminders only to forget to make your repayments. Just make sure you have enough moolah in your nominated bank account. Otherwise, you may be charged a dishonour fee.
Why do we ask for your bank account details?
Do we offer secured bad credit personal loans?
Yes! We sure do. We don’t believe that bad credit is the only indicator of suitability. That’s why we look at your current income and expenses to assess whether you are suitable to apply with Nifty Loans. We can look past previous financial mistakes and give you the ability to apply for the finance you need. At Nifty Loans, we know that sometimes the unexpected strikes and quick finance is your contingency plan. So, we want to help! If you have bad credit don’t be bashful, apply today, and we’ll see if we can help.
Do we perform credit checks?
On the subject of bad credit, you may be wondering, “do we perform credit checks?” Well, the short answer is yes, we do perform credit checks. However, a credit check is not all we look at. As mentioned before, we mainly look at your current income to determine your ability to repay your loan. We also conduct credit checks because we adhere to responsible lending practices. Nifty Loans aims to provide all Australians with easy and simple finance; however, we won’t approve anyone that cannot afford their repayments.
What about Centrelink and apply with Nifty Loans?
Another great question! If you receive Centrelink, you may find it difficult to find finance at the doorstep of traditional lenders. Lucky for you, we think differently. We consider most Centrelink payments as regular income if you’ve been receiving them for at least 3 months! So, you’re after easy finance, and you receive Centrelink – then you may have met your perfect match. Hint hint – it’s us. Scroll up to apply for loans for people on Centrelink!
What happens if I cannot make my repayments?
Sometimes life hits with you the unexpected and our team of loan specialists understands that. So, if something happens that hinders your ability to make your upcoming repayment, give our team a call. Remember, they are humans too. And understand that life doesn’t always go to plan. Just make sure you give us 24 business hours notice before your repayment is due.
