What is a line of credit?
A line of credit is a fixed amount of money a bank or other financial provider gives approval for you to access on an ongoing basis.
Unlike personal loans, where funds are delivered upfront, and you repay the full amount plus interest over time, a line of credit Sydney allows you to access any available money, at any time, as many times as you like.
Provided you meet the predetermined line of credit payment conditions, you can avoid paying any interest fees - meaning a virtual credit card can be a good financial investment and a sensible way to save and manage your money.
When is line of credit useful?
Let’s face it: having access to cash is always useful!
MoneyMe offers fast, flexible credit for just about any situation. Whether the unexpected happens and you find yourself in sudden need of money fast to help cover bills or rent, or you’re exploring loans online and line of credit rates with a view to bigger things like wedding loans, property renovations or travel, a secured line of credit can be a great financial investment.
To be eligible for a line of credit Sydney like our Freestyle virtual credit card, you’ll need to be at least 18 years of age and an Australian citizen or resident for tax purposes.
You’ll also need to have a regular, demonstrable source of income. It’s important that you’re able to show what the amount you earn through regular deposits into the same bank account, so if you’re self-employed or get paid in cash, you might need to change how you process your finances before you apply.
As part of the credit card fast approval process, when you apply for a line of credit, we’ll check the past 24 months of your credit history.
Having a sound credit score is important to maximising your chances of approval, as it reflects the level of risk we take on when we lend to you. It also helps inform the conditions under which you can borrow, such as the amount of credit made available to you and at what line of credit interest rate.
But if you’re worried that your credit score has taken a few hits and might not paint you in the most favourable light, or you’re perhaps a young person, and this is the first time you’ve applied for a line of credit, don’t sweat it!
Things have changed around how your credit score is calculated. Previously, only negative credit behaviours were tracked on your credit report, such as where you may have missed a bill or line of credit payment such as on a personal loan or credit card. This is called ‘defaulting’.
Nowadays, things are much fairer, thanks to Comprehensive Credit Reports (CCR). Every time you meet your line of credit payment conditions, you’re demonstrating positive credit behaviours - and these are now being recorded on your credit history, along with any defaults and applications for lines of credit.
We think this is great, as it presents a much more comprehensive borrower profile and allows us to see where things are really at, so you’re not just being measured against a rough spot you may have gone through in the past or penalised for not having had other financial products.
