Does signing up affect my credit rating?

We commit to being an ethical credit provider which means we take a few things into consideration when assessing your application, including performing a credit check. The credit check we perform will be recorded on your credit file as a credit enquiry in accordance with our terms and conditions.

Like with any form of credit, failing to meet your repayment obligations may result in a credit default being registered against you which may impact your future eligibility for credit.

Why was my application refused?

It could be for a number of reasons;
  • We were not able to verify your identity
  • You do not live in Australia
  • You are not over 18 years old
  • You do not have a valid and verifiable email address and mobile phone number
  • You do not have a verifiable and valid ID
  • You do not have an Australian debit or credit card
  • You did not pass our credit check. We perform a credit check on all etika customers. If your application is refused, it means the information held about you by our credit reporting agency does not meet our lending criteria. Or, it could mean that you do not have a substantial enough credit file yet. You would have received an email from us with contact information of the credit reporting agency if you have any further questions.
