How does it work?

Perfect Payday connects borrowers with its network of lenders. Perfect Payday works by assessing applications submitted by prospective lenders and finding them a suitable loan. You follow the loan terms and repayments set by the lender.

What are the types of Payday Loans?

The loans on offer from Perfect Payday are small, short-term loans. You can borrow between $100 and $2,000 depending on your financial situation. As listed on its website, these payday loans might be an option if any of the following situations apply:

  • Financial emergency. If unexpected expenses come up such as medical needs or a spur of the moment event that you need to pay for.
  • Needing money before you next get paid. If you have not budgeted properly and found yourself without enough money to cover you.
  • Car repairs. If you get into a car accident or your car breaks down and you need money to get it fixed.
  • Bills and payments. If you've forgotten to pay a bill or make a payment and won't have sufficient money to pay it until payday.

Fees

Perfect Payday doesn't charge applicants fees, these fees are charged by the individual lender. For your average payday loan, you can expect to pay $24 for every $100 you borrow. So, for example, if you borrow $400 you will repay $496 and if you borrow $750 you will pay back $930. The $24 is made up of:

  • Monthly fee - 4% of principal amount.

If you apply and are offered a loan, make sure to check if any establishment fees, monthly fees and default fees apply and if you can afford them before signing the contract.

How to apply

You can apply for a Perfect Payday Loan online. The form will be assessed and they will start to find lenders for you. You can then electronically sign the loan agreement and receive the funds.

The application process requires you to provide personal details and you also have to mention if you have experienced financial hardship in the last six months. Perfect Payday does not perform credit checks, although some lenders they work with do. You can still apply if you have a bad credit history as they work with lenders who lend those with adverse credit history.

Eligibility

The eligibility criteria for these loans vary because of the wide range of lenders they work with and the different loans they have on offer. Generally, you need to:

  • Be an Australian resident
  • Be aged over 18 years
  • Have an active bank account
  • Be able to provide proof of your identity
  • Have a regular source of income paid into your bank account (not in cash)

Financial hardship


If you're experiencing financial hardship and would like to speak to someone for free financial counselling, you can call the Financial Counsellors hotline on 1800 007 007. It is open from 9:30am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. When comparing short term loans, ensure you take into consideration any fees, charges and rates you may be charged. It's important to weigh up all your options before applying for any form of credit.

⚠️ Warning about Borrowing

      Hi Mervan,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Basically, lenders would require you to provide them with a proof of your identity when applying for a loan. You’d be best to contact the lender directly to discuss your eligibility and confirm what other IDs you can submit aside from DL and passport.

      Cheers,

      Hi Danel,

      You can find lenders that consider pensioners for loans on this page. Unfortunately I’m unable to offer you any personal advice but you can take a look at the lenders on that page and the products they are offering to find something you’re eligible for and want to apply for. Keep in mind a lender will only approve you for a loan amount it deems you can afford.

      I hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

    Hi, I need to get a loan of about $500.00 and I am getting so many offers for thousands of dollars from different lenders but I don’t trust how they want me to give them access to my checking account online username and password. Please let me know if I am right to not trust them and discard their contacts.

    Thank you.

      Hi Yas,

      This is standard practice for short-term lenders (you can read more about how it works on this page). Also, keep in mind that every time you apply for a loan it will be listed on your credit file, and multiple applications can damage your credit score.

      I hope this information will be of use,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Sonya,

      The time it takes differs depending on which lender you are approved with from Perfect Payday’s panel. Generally, payday lenders take one business day to transfer approved funds to your bank.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Ky,

      As long as he is over the age of 18 and has a regular income that is deposited into a bank account he is able to apply with perfect payday. His financial circumstances will be reviewed to determine whether he will be able to afford the repayments.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Ronnell,

      You’re able to apply for this loan no matter what your credit history, so long as you meet the other minimum criteria. If you do meet this criteria you can submit your application on the Perfect Payday website.

      Hope this has helped,

      Elizabeth
