        Hi Phil,

        Thanks for your comment. Payday lenders fees in Australia are capped at 20% of the principle amount and 4% monthly account fees(this doesn’t include fees if you don’t pay back your loan on time.)If your loan goes over 1 month you will be charged a further 4%.To calculate your amount, please click the more button through to CashTrain to use their repayment calculator.

        I hope this has helped!

        Hi Colleen,

        Thanks for your question.

        On the CashTrain website it states that “Once you’ve been approved for your payday loan, we will electronically transfer the money to your bank account on the same day. If you bank with one of the big four, the loan will normally be available on the same day – often within hours. Otherwise, the funds normally hit your account the following morning.”

        Hi Ali,

        Thanks for your question.

        Cash Train doesn’t approve or send money for loans on the weekends, and is only able to process loans Monday to Friday.

        I hope this has helped.
