How does humm work?

Like other "buy now, pay later" programs, humm has partnered with an ever-growing range of retailers from whom you can purchase products without paying anything upfront. To buy online, simply look for retailers using the humm icon, and use humm at the checkout in order to pay. To buy in-store, you can download the humm app (where you will find select stores using humm) and create a barcode that you can show the cashier to pay for your items.

Fees incurred using humm vary depending on how much borrowing power you wish to access and on whether you make late payments. Quick online approval is available for purchases under $2,000, and you can get pre-approval online for up to $10,000. You can apply in-store for purchasing power up to $30,000. You can also pay off your balance early, should you wish.

Features of humm

  • Quick and easy application. You can apply online quickly and easily for purchases of $2,000 and apply for pre-approval online for up to $10,000.

  • Expanding store variety. There are many sellers already partnered with humm, and it claims the list is always growing.
  • Flexible repayment options. Choose to pay back smaller purchases in 5 or 10 weekly or fortnightly instalments. For bigger purchases (over $2,000), opt to pay back over 6, 12 or 24 months or up to 60 months in some circumstances.

Hi there,


Here’s a few options for getting a loan on a low income, assuming you are unemployed but receive some benefits.


Depending on your situation, if you’re unemployed and meet the eligibility requirements, you may also be eligible for a no-interest loan worth up to $3,000 from Good Shepherd: https://goodshep.org.au/services/loans/


Hope this helps!

l purchased hearing aids via Humm , was given approval for $3500. l paid a deposit and have a copy of the transation that states that l owe $2850. Yet when l go into my Humm account it says that l have $500.00 and no transactions have been recorded and also l have not had any direct debits taken out yet. l got the hearing aids in july last year but as yet have not been happy with them so they are being fixed. Do l still have that amount to pay off the hearing aids or not? Thanks

can you use a NSW photo card for proof of ID?

Hi Cindy, A NSW Photo Card may be used as photo identification if you don’t have a NSW Driver Licence. It has the same application process as the driver licence, and some of the same security features.
