Qualifying for credit with iCASH
A lot of people get tripped up on credit score requirements or other hurdles when applying for a loan. At iCASH, we keep our credit requirements fairly basic, so that we can help as many Canadians as possible. The main consideration is someone's ability and means to repay the loan. The basic eligibility requirements are straightforward and pretty easy to meet.
- Be at least 19 years old.
- Be a Canadian citizen, and a resident of one of the provinces we serve Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick or Ontario.
- Need to have been at the same employer for at least the last 3 months.
- Have at least $800/month in net income, via direct deposit into a valid Canadian bank account.
- This can include wages along with social assistance benefits, pensions, and other income sources.
- Have a Canadian bank account with access to online banking and has been open for at least 3 months.
- Have a valid mobile phone number, e-mail address, and home address.
It’s that easy! Most people can easily meet those requirements.
iCASH provides flexible credit options
Canadians can borrow as little as $150 or as much as $1,500.
iCASH also has a loan calculator tool that can help.
Flexible repayment options
Canadians can choose one of two flexible repayment options:
- A Flexpay loan from iCASH gives everyone that qualifies for credit the option for 2 or 3 installment repayments over the same schedule with no additional cost.
- This is only available to customers who are paid weekly, bi-weekly or twice a month. It is also available to anyone who receives two different government social benefits, example child tax benefits and provincial support income.
No matter which option is choosen, the interest rate and fees charged are absolutely the same!

Customers need to ensure that they have sufficient funds in their bank account on the repayment date(s) to avoid any insufficient funds fees or other issues with the loan.
Applying for a re-loan with iCASH is a lot easier when customers need to borrow money. The Reloan process can take as little as 2 minutes as customers only need to confirm the information provided in the original iCASH application.
What’s more, iCASH customers will be able to earn Cashback rewards with every loan they take and repay it back on time. Repeat borrowers can also gain access to higher levels of Cashback (up to 20%), and additional membership perks over time.
