Testimonials

Not bad for a financial product right?

Q1: Will checking my score hurt my credit score?

This is the biggest credit myth out there! We make a ‘soft enquiryʼ with participating credit reporting bureaus. That means it is technically recorded, but it does not impact your credit score in the slightest. Credit providers are not able to see soft enquiries, so no dramas.

Q2: When are credit scores used?

In Australia, credit scores are used by lenders to understand how reliable someone will be in paying back credit.

It usually plays a role in these situations:

Q3: Who is keeping score?

Credit scores are generated by credit bureaus. Basically, they collect data relating to your history of borrowing and how good you are at paying your bills to paint a picture of your creditworthiness. 

Q4: How are credit scores calculated?

The exact way credit scores are calculated is kept under wraps by the bureaus. A true magician never reveals their secrets! 

However, we do know the main information used to calculate your credit score.
