What our customers say

5.0 Online loans through harmoney are the best new zealand
5.0 It is second time I have applied loan through harmoney and have same overwhelmingly great experience. new zealand
5.0 Great to be able to consolidate debt so easily (due to my high credit score rating), all of it done online. This is the 3rd time I have done this and it seems to get easier each time as I get more experienced at filling out all the information required.

Repayment schedule is more than reasonable and I'll have plenty of opportunity to pay back the full loan with my house due to be sold at the end of 2023. This debt consolidation will give me more opportunities for home improvements before I sell so I am really likely to make back all my money (including interest repayments) long term. It's certainly one of the safest financial decisions I have made in my 40 years of banking etc.. (i.e. I am 60 years old)

Additional Comments (post-loan completion)
Thanks hugely for funding my most recent loan consolidation. There are lots of reasons why I did this through Harmoney:

Firstly, I was able to borrow money from Harmoney that I could not get from my bank even though my credit rating was 1000. I can understand their cautious approach as an owner/occupier but their approach didn't benefit me. The reality is that I'll be selling my home in 2.5 years anyway and I needed to take some calculated risks financially to do that anyway. The term of my loan with Harmoney is 5 years so it's going to be pretty satisfying to pay all the money back - $40 000 at the beginning of 2024.

Secondly,the ease with which all of this can be done online. True, I am a digital technology teacher and therefore familiar with dealing with most of the questions but what I was not prepared for was the speed of the whole process.It's quite sobering how fast credit checks and bank accounts can be completed when done with digital technologies

Thirdly, I quite liked the fact that I didn't have to front up to a bank mortgage broker face-to-face as it's a lot of avoidable emotional energy that I don't want to spend there (and it's never pleasant getting a 'no' to both parties).

Fourthly, if my application failed here with Harmoney, few would know - my bank would be none the wiser anyway - but the same learning would still have taken place for me which in turn would have helped me set new goals anyway, financial and otherwise.

I'm still not close to my financial goals for my lifetime but I'm still a lot further ahead than most my age in planning and providing for my retirement. Investing in my ChCh house will certainly help bring it up to a better standard when I'll be selling it in 2.5 years (Christmas 2023)

Thanks again for financing this and I am quite sincere in this. The reality is that no bank would have advanced this money for me and you are the best of all the NZ lenders that I have dealt with in my time as an almost 60 year old.

Besides that I cannot default the service that harmoney provide awesome work proud to be a customer of Harmoney!!!! Auckland, New Zealand

5.0 Thank you guys excellent job when I need a loan well done thanks Harmony. New Zealand
5.0 Completely amazed to be honest (at the speed and ease of the loan process here). Stunned actually. Speechless.

Granted that my credit rating is 1000 and that I have a guaranteed permanent secondary teaching position but I have NEVER experienced or expected anything as smooth as this Harmony process (FYI: I am 57 years old and a property owner of one rental and have gone through many mortgage and loan applications in the last 20 years. I also have an extensive 30-year secondary teaching career alongside this).

Despite my strong credit history, no hire purchases, an $82 000 salary (guaranteed), and a $610 weekly rental income, my regular bank would not loan me the extra $10 000 needed to complete a new sleepout because, in their view, I was reaching beyond a financial ceiling that they would not finance.

It left me in a pretty pickle as I wanted to complete the sleepout in Christchurch before the 2021 academic year so that I could take advantage of the influx of NZ students into the city post-New Year. The conceting and foundation is down already so, really, it is not going to take too much to complete the actual structure.

My regular bank simply did not want to know despite an extremely positive valuation from a registered and accredited valuer.

Getting this loan is actually a kind of miracle for me. The property has been in my family's hands for 45 years but now I am really adding value and getting some good returns on it (I am also not over-leveraged compared to Auckland properties).

All I can say is, THANK YOU Harmony as I don't have to go back to my bank anymore to beg for the funds required.

Can I also add that I am greatly heartened that I can pay the loan back at anytime without any financial penalty. It really is a great deal tbh and I would recommend this lender to anyone out there who is stuck for funds

Common personal loan questions

Who is Harmoney?

Harmoney launched in 2014 as NZ’s first licensed peer-to-peer personal loan provider. Since then, we’ve loaned more than $1.7 billion to over 50,000 borrowers in both Australia and New Zealand (March 2020).

Today, we fund loans more traditionally, but our focus remains the same: to make the borrowing experience fairer, faster and more accessible and to remove the inconvenience, awkwardness and uncertainty associated with traditional borrowing.

Our purpose is to help and inspire people to achieve their goals through financial products that are friendly, fair and simple to use. We know that access to money at the right time can make a huge difference and we believe responsible lending is crucial for helping people embrace the opportunities that life presents.

Is a personal loan good for paying off credit card debt?

An online loan in the form of a debt consolidation loan can be an effective way to pay off credit card debt and other debts, but it’s not suitable for everyone.

Why use a personal loan instead of extending my mortgage?

These days, low interest rates for mortgages can make it tempting to increase a mortgage with extra debt to save you interest fees. It’s an option that’s worth considering if you have equity, but it can sometimes end up being more costly in the long run.

We’ve written about the pros and cons of extending your mortgage, to help you make an informed decision about managing debt:

What can I use a personal loan for?

Harmoney online loans are very flexible and can be used to finance almost anything you want to.

Debt consolidation, home improvements and renovations and car finance are popular reasons why people apply for a personal loan. We also offer wedding loans, education loans and personal loans for medical expenses, household items, travel and holidays and more.

If money and finances are holding you back from achieving the things you want in life, talk to us about how a personal loan could help.

Will I qualify for a Harmoney loan?

In New Zealand - to apply for a personal loan you need to:

  • Be 18 years or older

  • Be a Permanent Resident or New Zealand citizen

  • Be earning a stable income

In Australia: to apply for a personal loan you need to:

  • Be 18 years or older

  • Be an Australian citizen, Permanent Resident or New Zealand citizen

  • Be full-time or permanent part-time employed

  • Have your photo ID documents handy, such as your Australian driver’s licence or passport

  • Have a clear credit file with no defaults, judgements or bankruptcies

  • Require a minimum $2,000 loan

When you apply or request a quote for an online loan, we need to know a little about your needs and your finances. We’ll also make some enquiries to help us verify your information. Using this information, we’ll assess your eligibility to receive credit and your capacity to service a loan.

If you qualify for a loan, we’ll provide you with your personal interest rate and the maximum amount you can borrow. There are times when we may not be able to offer a loan, such as if your recent credit history is unsuitable or there is insufficient capacity to service a loan.

What happens if a borrower’s circumstances change?

We know that things don’t always go as intended, despite careful planning. If changes in your circumstances are making you concerned about your financial situation, our customer service team is here to help as best we can.

About personal loans

Accessing money to help you achieve your goals sooner.

Personal loans allow you to borrow money for a specific purpose, whether it’s to buy a car, renovate your house or pay for your education. A personal loan can pave the way for you to achieve your goals while cutting down on your waiting time.

Costs associated with personal loans include interest and fees, which the loan provider uses to make money. Interest varies based on a number of factors including the borrower’s personal history, market rates and interest type – either fixed or variable. Fees, meanwhile, are charged to cover administration costs.

At Harmoney, our goal is to help borrowers take advantage of life’s opportunities by funding their endeavours in a friendly, fair and accessible way. Since 2014, we have sought to provide an excellent customer experience that helps you every step of the way.

Loan purposes

There are many different reasons to take out a personal loan, and we will have a specialised option to suit your purpose. Some of our popular loan types include debt consolidation, car loans, home renovation loans and business loans. We also offer loans for travel and holidays, weddings, medical expenses and more.

If you’re ready to make your dreams come to, talk to us about your loan needs.

Comparing a personal loan to other loan products

There are other money borrowing options beyond personal loans including credit cards, hire purchase (HP), store cards and buy-now-pay-later options like Afterpay, Zippay and LayBuy.

When deciding which loan product is right for you it’s important to consider the following factors.

Loan amount

The amount you need to borrow will help determine the type of loan product best suited to you.

For smaller purchases, store cards and buy-now-pay-later services are most suitable.

For larger purchases personal loans, credit cards and HP borrowing limits are more appropriate. Harmoney personal loans range from $2,000 to $70,000making them a flexible option and suited to various sized purchases or projects.

Interest rates and fees

Loan providers charge different interest rates and fees, but it’s important to know what you’ll have to pay back before you accept any loan offer.

To make things easier for, Harmoney displays all its interest rates and fees clearly on our website. This helps you make an informed decision about whether you want a loan and how much you can afford in repayments.

Our fees are also easy to understand. So long as you make all your repayments on time, you’ll only ever have one start-up fee. You can even pay back your loan without any extra charge.

This isn’t the same for every loan provider though, so be sure to check all the fine print before you sign on the dotted line...

Loan term

The ‘loan term’ refers to how long you’ll be making repayments on your loan. With Harmoney, you have the option for a three-year or a five-year loan. Whichever option you take, so long as you make all your repayments on time, you know exactly when you’ll be debt free.

If you want, you can off your loan early and there are no fees for doing so. You may be able to do this by paying a little bit extra with every repayment or by making a lump sum when you have spare cash.

In most cases, a shorter-term loan will have higher monthly repayments but you’ll pay less overall in interest.

Why people use personal loans

Personal loans can be used to cover just about any expense you have. The benefit of a personal loan compared to other consumer credit products such as credit cards is that there is no mystery. With a Harmoney personal loan the interest, repayments and loan term are laid out for you to approve before signing up for the loan.

Harmoney personal loans also allow for fee-free early repayments which can save you money on interest. Your loan term may be 3 or 5 years, but you can pay the loan off in 1 or 2 years if you want to, allowing flexibility and control of your loan.

Downsides of traditional personal loans

Traditional loans can be difficult to arrange, with face-to-face meetings required at times that may not suit. On top of that, you may have to take time off work to attend the appointment, which not everyone can afford to do.

At Harmoney, we’ve made the process simpler. All of our loans – whether that’s for a new car, a new business or something else – can be applied for at any time of the day, on any day of the week, from wherever you are. Our online applications make loans easier.
