Top Tips to get approved with Home Credit

Top Tips to get approved with Home Credit

Home Credit has been quite a help in making one’s appliance and gadget purchases more affordable with monthly installments without the need for a credit card, but one can also attest the stringent process it takes to get approved despite the seemingly easy requirements. We provide some tips on how to get more chances of approval.

It’s a known fact that Home Credit is gaining popularity for a mass-market approach in helping people purchase their devices in more affordable ways. In fact, we have already featured several instances where they were partnering with smartphone brands in offering 0% interest installments. These tips are collated from several users off Facebook groups who ask about this process, as well from my own experience in conversing with Home Credit Sales Agents across stores in the metro when I tried to purchase phones myself.

You should not have overdue loans/payments elsewhere

As with other companies that offer loans, we highly recommend keeping your other loan accounts updated and in good standing condition. Home Credit also uses information stored at the SEC’s Credit Information Corporation. This enables Home Credit to weed out delinquent applicants and ensure that you have the capability to purchase a new appliance or gadget. Thus, it is with our utmost recommendation that you disclose with them any outstanding loans you have to prevent declines.

Pay for a higher cashout

Home Credit has always advised its customers to “pay the highest down payment you can provide,” and it does bear truth. A higher initial cashout does get you more chances of approval, not to mention the lighter monthly installments as you’ve already paid for most of the device’s cost upfront.


Present more requirements

Home Credit applicants may be required just two IDs to process the loan application, but you need to consider that they’re asking for two primary ones. In most cases, one primary ID is okay as long as it is supported by secondary requirements, which is stated in their website:

Home Credit Application
Primary ID-SSS
-Driver’s License
-Valid Passport
-Voter’s ID
Secondary ID-Bank account statement
-Brgy. Certificate/Clearance
-Certificate of Employment
-Credit/Saving Card
-Company ID
-Electric bill
-Mobile phone bill
-Water bill
-PhilHealth Card
-Phone bill
-Postal ID
-Remittance Slip
-Salary Slip
-NBI Clearance

Declare your assets

Some people we’ve talked to these past few days also mentioned that declaring assets could help in getting you approved for a gadget loan. One told us that he declared he has a car, to which he was automatically approved without all the phone calls.

Pay your bills earlier, not on time

You may be wondering why we placed this, but if you plan to apply for a Home Credit loan again after your existing contract, you may want to pay your bills earlier than the due date to keep your good standing and have a hassle-free reapplication. There were several instances of people not being able to get a Home Credit installment loan again primarily because they have failed to pay their dues on time.

One case could be that third-party payment channels post the payments later than when you have paid, so keep in mind to pay early to avoid such hassle.

There we have it, folks. We hope these tips help you get approved with Home Credit in no time. Do help and share your own experiences and tips on the comments section below.

    any feedback about cash loan malaki poba ang int?

    • Some brands offer 0% interest at specific monthly terms across all dealers with Home Credit.. Some retailers (MemoXpress, Automatic Centre) offer a lot of their products with Home Credit 0% interest installment all year round. If you do a bigger cashout (say, 50%), you’d get less interest since you’d have a lesser balance to pay.

    • Chivoy says:

      yup medyo malaki yung interest sa cash loan 4%

    • franco says:

      yes po mas malaki pa sa inutang mo ang magiging interest mo in 3 years .kaya kung ako sayo maam wag na .

    • Xeno says:

    matatapos na loan payments ko sa cp ko and nag offer sila saken ng cash loan, up to 26K. approved sana ako nung pumunta ako sa memoexpress tapos kukunin ko na lang sa metrobank yung pera after 3 business days, kaso nga lang nung nagcompute na si kuya, P1,968 babayaran ko every month for 24 months so papatak sa P47,232 yung total na babayaran kong total for 2 years. nanlumo ako when i did the math kaya di ako pumirma kasi di ko naman sobrang kailangan ng pera that time. halos doble yung tubo nila sa 26K na uutangin ko, ang lakas makaloko haha.

  19. Shirley says:

    Hi, I would like to share my home credit experience since 2017. Nung una, I had this cellphone loan then natapos ko siya, after 2 months of fully paying it nag cellphone loan ulit ako then approved naman. The third time na kukuha ulit ako ng phone, biglang na denied ako. I had never had any delays paying the second phone loan. I admit I had one late payment in my first loan. Pero nakakapagtaka lang po kasi na approve ako nung second time eh. Then with my 3rd loan sana, the phone I was about to get costed around 27k, tapos ang down payment ko pa naman sana ay 18k but I got denied. I want to ask po sana kung bakit ako na deny? I was pretty hopeful I would get the phone without any hassle since I was their avid customer. ( And also I’m planning to try one more time soon but I feel discouraged after the rejection. Another question I wanna ask po if I can still apply after being rejected?
    Your answers are very helpful. Thank you po ^^

    • Verneth says:

Balik ko nlang yung gadget bili nlang bago kasi ang bayaran ko di na worthit price ng items doble na

  22. marlon says:

    I was applying at Home credit for a gadget for my child worth 7k ONLY, but according to the agent that assisted me, our application will be decline due to the fact that our Municipality was already block listed… the Home credit generalized our place to be block listed… in fact, we can afford to pay for spot cash but tried to avail of home credit which is getting popular with there vision for “helping out people purchase and avail there dreamed appliances or gadgets thru financing”. I was so very disappointed but did not react violently but tried to reach out your company to review your policy of approving and declining customers.
