Fixed Payment Options are features of your account which allow you to request part of or all of your available credit limit, to be converted into an instalment loan.
Your instalment loan interest is lower than the Standard Annual Percentage Rate, you choose your repayment terms and you can set up an instalment loan online, without the need to talk to us. You're in control.
There are two types of Fixed Payment Options
- Click for Cash
- Buy. Convert. Save.
This feature allows you to sign into your account and request cash, up to your available credit limit, at a reduced interest rate. Minimum request amount is $5001.
This feature is available when you have eligible purchases you would like to convert into an instalment loan and pay less interest. Minimum request amount is $3001.
A Fixed Payment Option takes part of or all of your existing available credit and converts it into an instalment loan, at a promotional interest rate.
Once set up you will be sent a letter within 7 - 10 working days to confirm the details of your Fixed Payment Option.
