I want to apply for a loan – how does it work?

Find out if you meet the eligibility criteria and then submit your application online. Purple Payday will search through its panel of lenders to find a suitable option and one that can offer you a loan. This only takes a couple of minutes. You will then be redirected to the lender’s page where you can review the loan and the repayments. If you’re happy with the terms, you can agree to the loan.

What features does Purple Payday offer?

Applying for a payday loan with Purple Payday offers several benefits, including:

  • Easy application. Apply online and complete your application within minutes. If Purple Payday finds a lender to approve you, you’ll be directed to its site quickly to review the loan terms.
  • Access to various lenders. Applying with Purple Payday gives you access to a panel of lenders and hence more of a chance of being approved than if you’d applied with just one.
  • Bad credit accepted. If you have bad credit you’re still able to apply. Some lenders on the panel have flexible eligibility criteria regarding credit history and can still approve you.
  • No obligation application. You can submit your application to review the terms offered by the lender and be under no obligation to accept them.

How much will a loan cost?

This depends on the lender you are matched with. For loans under $2,000 with terms of 14 - 60 days, lenders cannot charge you more than the following:

  • An establishment fee that is 20% of your principal loan amount
  • A monthly fee that is 4% of your principal loan amount
  • A government fee or charge
  • Default fees and charges
  • Enforcement expenses

      Hi Anthony,

      We’re unable to assist with your actual application as it’s handled by Purple Payday directly. They don’t have a customer service number but you can email them on compliance@pingtree.com or try their social media channels.

    Hi Paul,

    You’ve come through to finder.com.au, a financial comparison site and not Purple Payday. As Purple Payday is not a direct lender you may be contacted by a lender on its panel if you’re approved for a loan. You can also head to its website or social pages to get in contact.

    Hope this helps,

      Hi Michelle,

      If you’ve been accepted by Purple Payday, the lender you have been matched with is responsible for funding your loan. You’ll need to get in contact with Purple Payday so you can find out the status of your application and when you can expect to receive your funds. However, it will usually only be within banking hours.

      Hope this has helped,

      Hi Nicole,

      This depends on how long your repayment terms are. You will be charged an establishment fee of 20% and a monthly fee of 4% – we’ve got a calculator you can use to get an idea of your repayments. You can use it here.

      I hope this will help.

      Hi Faasolo,

      Thanks for your question.

      The minimum requirements for a Purple Payday loan are that you are receiving a regular source of income. If you find that you aren’t eligible, you can find more unemployed loan options on this page.

      I hope this will help.
