What else should I know?

zipMoney’s interest-free* plan is a loan and must be paid back and failure to do so could affect your future credit rating. zipMoney’s payment plans are interest-free for 6 months*, but please be aware that interest at the rate of 23.9% will start to accrue after the interest free period. You can see your balance, how long it is estimated to take to repay the loan and change your payment schedule any time you login to your account.

Terms and Conditions*: Available to approved applicants only. Minimum monthly repayments are required, please see your contract for details. Interest free period subject to course area. Paying only the minimum monthly repayment amount will not pay out the purchase within the interest free period. Any balance outstanding at the expiry of the interest-free period will be charged interest at the standard annual percentage rate, currently 23.9%. A Monthly Account Service Fee of $4.95 (when balance owing) applies. Terms & Conditions apply and are available on application.
