How do I borrow from Club Money?

If you apply during business hours you should receive a response within 30 minutes. Your credit history will be checked as part of your application but it's unlikely you'll be rejected due to a few small bad marks on your credit file.
If you're approved and you accept the loan contract, Club Money will determine how much you can afford and organise a repayment schedule to suit your budget. Your nominated bank account will be direct debited the repayment amount on the scheduled date as outlined in your contract. You just need to ensure you have sufficient funds available.
