Who is eligible to apply?

At Nifty Loans, we want to help all Aussies looking for weekend cash loans, but we do have a few requirements to meet before you apply.

To apply, you must:

  1. Be at least 18 years old
  2. Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
  3. Have a regular income for at least 3 months in a personal bank account
  4. Have an active number and email address

So, before you apply, just make sure to tick off all these requirements. To get started, just scroll up and you’ll find our loan calculator.

What to have by your side when you apply?

When you apply with Nifty all you really need is a few minutes of your time and an internet connection. However, to make life that bit easier, also have these details handy:

  • Personal contact details e.g active mobile number and primary email address
  • The reason for your loan
  • Internet banking details (so we can pull your bank statements)
  • MyGov (if you receive Centrelink)
  • Employment info

That’s it. Just have these details handy when you apply and you’ll breeze through your application. If you have any questions about why we require some of these details, you can contact our friendly team at

What is the difference between unsecured and secured loans?

At Nifty Loans, we offer three types of personal loans: small unsecured loans, medium secured loans and large secured loans. Here’s a breakdown of what all that means.

Small unsecured loans are small loans from $300 to $2,000 that you can borrow for 3 to 6 months. Unsecured simply means they don’t require you to attach any security to your application. Small weekend loans are perfect for a little financial pick-me-up, without too much commitment.

Medium and large secured loans start from $2,001 and go up to $5,000 and the repayment period is between 13 to 24 months. Medium secured loans start at $2,001 and go up to $4,600 and we also offer large loans of $5,000. Secured simply means that we require security to apply for this amount, such as a car, motorbike, caravan or boat. Medium or large secured loans could be worth considering for a big bachelorette or bachelor weekend, especially if you’re a key member of the bridal party and want to make it one for the books.

So, that’s the difference between secured and unsecured loans. When you’re deciding how much to borrow keep in mind if you borrow over $2,000, you must provide security.
