- Why do you ask for my internet-banking details?
By inputting your details we are able to view your bank account history via Credit Sense. This helps us make our lending decisions quickly, and assess what types of loans are affordable and sustainable for you. As a responsible broker, it is important for us to verify your incomings and outgoings. Ultimately, this will help us ensure that the loan is not unsuitable for you and you can make the repayments due under the loan. We may use future transaction information to quickly assess your future loan applications.

Your data is encrypted in transit via Credit Sense.

However, you understand that allowing CreditSense.com.au to access your Transaction History is at your sole risk. As a result of you providing your internet banking details to a third party account aggregation service, you may become liable under your bank’s rules for any subsequent unauthorised transaction that occurs to your bank account.
- Do I have a choice to not provide my internet banking details?
For Small Cash Loans you'll need to use this option or you can apply for Personal Loan instead which also provides a larger loan amount, however applying for a Personal Loan will take longer to apply for and to recieve the money you need, this is due to more manual work processes involved.
