7. How can I repay my loan?

We make the entire loan process convenient, which means you can repay the loan at the click of a button - just as you would take out a loan with AvantCredit.

You may repay by debit card through the Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) to collect the repayment due, including any applicable charges, on the monthly payment date agreed by deducting the sum from the account you have nominated and for which you provided debit card details.

If the payment transaction fails, we may make two further attempts on the payment date and on additional days pursuant to our CPA Policy. Each payment will be for the instalment amount due, together with any applicable charges imposed in accordance with the loan agreement.

If you wish to cancel your CPA, please contact us via the number, postal or email address contained in the footer. Alternatively you may contact your bank directly to cancel it. Please note, however that if you do cancel your CPA you must make alternative arrangements to repay your loan in accordance with the agreed terms.
