During the loan application process, you will be asked for your personal information such as name, 3-year address history, date of birth, email and telephone contact details and employment/income information. If you are accepted you will also need a credit or debit card registered to you at your address on the credit application so that the lender can carry out an electronic identity check.
With most applications, we expect that you will be given an acceptance or decline decision within 10-20 seconds. In some cases, the lender may return the decision as ‘referred’. You will then receive an email with further instructions once the underwriters have made a decision. For in-store applications, you can usually wait in the shop whilst the underwriters review your application. Underwriting hours are between 8 am and 8 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Bank holidays), 9 am and 6 pm on Saturday, and 10 am and 5 pm on Sunday. If your application is referred outside of these hours then you may have to wait until the next working day for the decision.

RETURNS & CANCELLATION PROCEDURE
If you wish to return the order then please refer to our returns policy. If we accept your return we will contact the lender to cancel the credit agreement. We may not able to cancel the finance if the return falls outside of our returns period.
DECLINED CREDIT APPLICATIONS
You will be informed of the decision if the lender declines your application, the lender is unable to share the reason for decline with us. Applications are usually declined for reasons such as:
- you do not meet the eligibility criteria (see above);
- adverse credit reference agency information;
- your credit score;
- you are considered to be overcommitted; or
- your existing account performance with other lenders.
The lender will give you the contact details for the credit reference agency used. They will also give you information on how to appeal the decision if you wish to discuss the matter. Please note that the lender is unable to discuss this over the telephone due to Data Protection rules. You should also note that each lender applies its own credit score to applicants so if you have recently been accepted for credit elsewhere this does not necessarily mean that appealing the decision on this basis alone will result in a change of decision.
