How do myKredit lines of credit work?

A myKredit line of credit works the same as any other line of credit. Once myKredit approves your application, you can access your approved credit limit as and when you want. You can apply for a limit from $100 to $1,000.

Applying requires that you meet some basic eligibility criteria. Once you submit your application, myKredit reviews it and informs you of its decision via email. Upon the approval of your application, you have to accept the contract. After this, you can request an advance at any time by logging into the myKredit platform or by sending a text message. myKredit makes the funds available to you immediately.

The time it takes before you can get access to the funds depends on your bank, but it usually takes one to three business days. You have to repay the advanced money within 20 days to avoid paying late fees or collection charges.

Features of a line of credit from myKredit

Here’s why you can consider applying for a line of credit through this online lender:

  • Easy to apply. You can complete a myKredit line of credit application in five to 10 minutes, provided you have all the required information close at hand.
  • Receive your funds quickly. Once you submit your application, myKredit reviews it quickly. If it approves your line of credit you receive a notification via email almost immediately. After you accept the terms and conditions, you can request an advance up to your credit limit at any time. When you do, myKredit transfers the money into your bank account immediately.
  • Save on fees. You only pay fees on the funds myKredit advances, and not the entire credit limit. For example, if myKredit approves a $1,000 credit limit and you request a $300 advance, you pay fees towards $300.
  • Use funds for different reasons. What you do with the money you get through myKredit is basically up to you, as long as you use it for legitimate reasons. You can use it to pay bills, buy groceries, repair your car or simply get by after a temporary setback.

How much will the loan cost?

You don’t have to pay any interest towards your myKredit line of credit. However, you have to pay a 10% establishment fee on the Credit line amount each time you take an advance. For example, if you have a credit limit of $1,000 and take a $200 advance, you’ll have to pay a $20 establishment fee.

myKredit charges a direct debit processing fee of $1.50 per transaction. If you request a change in your direct debit arrangement, you may have to pay a direct debit rescheduling fee of $10.

If you default on your loan, the maximum you might have to pay is limited to twice the amount advanced.

    I applied for an $800 mycredit advance and was approved. I repaid it but now when I log in it says I have $0 credit available. I have tried ringing and emailing but have had no response.

      Hi Anne,

      Unfortunately you’ll need to continue to contact myKredit to enquire about your account. If you aren’t able to get in contact with them you can consider submitting a complaint to the credit ombudsmen.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hello – exact same thing has happened to me just now. Payment has cleared, received an email and text saying so but have gone into my account and it says I have no funds available. Whenever I call I can’t get thru and no responses to my emails either. Maybe they aren’t operating anymore?

      Hi Carly,

      Their website still seems to be in operation and you shouldn’t have been approved by their automated system if the lender wasn’t operating. You’ll need to try contacting them to enquire about the status of your account, but if you’re unable to get in contact and want to submit a complaint, you can do so with the Credit Ombudsmen.

      I hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      I have called for days and emailed – no response to emails and the phone call just says “you will connected shortly” and nothing happens.

      Hi Carly,

      You might want to order a free copy of your credit file to check if myKredit has listed the enquiry on there. If they have you have cause to complain to the Credit Ombudsmen as any credit enquiries affect your credit score and your ability to be approved for future credit. The Credit Ombudsmen may also be able to assist if it isn’t listed on there.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Adam,

      As you’ve already been approved for credit you should just be able to login to your account and request another advance.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Stewary,

      You’ve come through to finder.com.au, an Australian financial comparison service. You’ll need to contact myKredit to follow up on your loan. You need to head to its website and fill out the online form.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth
