Should I apply for a payday loan?

Applying for a cash loan should be a decision that you consider carefully. There are fees charged, and it’s a good idea to look at other options first before considering a payday loan.

Check your options before you borrow:

  • Get information about other options for managing your unexpected bills or debts by calling 1-800-007-007 from anywhere in Australia to talk to a free and independent financial counselor.
  • Speak directly to your service provider to see if you can work out a payment plan if you aren’t able to pay your bills on time.
  • If you are entitled to government benefits, it may be possible to request a cash advance from Centrelink.

The Government website MoneySmart is an invaluable resource explaining how small amount loans work and you can view other suggestions that may help you.

Do you offer no credit check payday loans?

We understand that you are more than just your credit rating. For those that either have a bad credit rating, or poor/no credit history we do offer no credit check payday loans for amounts up to $600. 

Instead of basing your application on your credit history, we will assess 90 days of bank statements and look for regular income into your bank account from your employer and/or Centrelink and consider this against outgoing expenses to make a decision on your application.

The loan amount offered may differ depending on your individual circumstances, but we love helping out Australians in a bind and are happy to accept applications without requesting your credit report. 

What is a payday loan and what is their use?

A payday loan is an online loan that you can complete quickly that offers short term cash for you to use for unexpected expenses or emergencies. These types of short term loads are ideally used only if other alternative options are not possible, as there are fees charged on the principle amount.

They are named payday loans because the idea is that you use a small loan amount to pay for expenses that arise before your next pay cheque, and then use your pay cheque cash to repay the loan amount. It is designed to offer a temporary solution for getting cash fast in order to avoid late fees, cancelled services, or missed opportunities.

 Frequently asked questions


Why would I need a short term loan?

Sometimes despite your very best budget planning, you get hit with an unforeseen bill, you need cash to take care of an emergency, or an opportunity comes up and you just can’t let it pass you by. You may need some extra cash within 24 hours and you don’t want the hassle and stress of long application times and piles of paperwork.

Unexpected expenses can arise even with the best budgeting and planning strategies. Perhaps it’s a loan for medical expenses like emergency dental work, or your electricity bill was higher than expected – plus the bill came for your car registration all in the same week! Maybe you’ve been tracking along well with your finances and then had an appliance break down. Replacing a white goods product like a fridge, dishwasher, or washing machine can be tricky to cover when you are on a budget.

It could be that your renovation budget has blown out and you need to cover the difference to get the home project complete. What about those opportunities that would save you money long term but you don’t have the funds on hand to take advantage on short notice, like a sale on flights or accommodation for that overseas holiday you had planned. How about moving expenses – paying bond, rent in advance, hiring a moving truck. There are so many reasons why being able to borrow with a small or medium loan could help you out when you need cash fast.

So what are your options? Cash advances on credit cards come with hefty fees, and you may feel uncomfortable borrowing from family or friends. If you have been searching for instant approval loans because you need cash today, a small online payday loan might be an option you are considering.


Will I get approved?

Wondering about our lending requirements for cash loans? To be approved for a loan you must be an Australian resident over the age of 18, employed (or receiving Centrelink benefits in some cases), and have your income paid regularly into your bank account.

Applications for cash loans in Australia will consider your credit history. Bad credit may prevent us from being able to approve payday advance loans in Australia. We do offer no credit check loans with more limited loan amounts if you have a bad credit rating or no credit rating. Centrelink loans are also an option depending on individual circumstances.

We love helping out Australians in a bind, but also we take our standards as a responsible lender seriously. If you aren’t sure that you can comfortably make repayments for your online payday loan, you can read our warning against borrowing here.

What documents do I have to provide?

We will need to verify your identity and income in order to process any cash loans online. 90 days worth of bank statements will be needed, and we will ask for a copy of your drivers license plus a utility bill that shows your current address.

Is a Cash Today loan right for me?

We help hundreds of people every year get access to fast cash when they need to because we understand that sometimes life is unpredictable!

Before applying for a loan with us, make sure you have explored all of your options. For example you could take another look at your budget, request free financial counselling, or there may be the option for a payment advance from Centrelink if you receive government benefits.

How much does it cost?

Our loans have the following simple fee structure:
20% of principal amount (establishment fee)
+ 4% of principal amount per month

What is your renewal policy?

Cash Today does not offer to renew or refinance loans.

We understand that despite your best intentions, circumstances can change and you might have problems making your repayments. In this case, it’s important that you speak with us and let us know what the problem is so that we can work with you to help you meet your obligations. If you do miss a payment or your direct debit fails, you may be charged additional fees or we may take further action. You can view our procedures for non-payment here.
