Your Spot Me Now eligibility depends on the score we receive from the soft credit score look-up done on your profile. The better your credit score, the more money we can offer you.
Another good-to-know is that the amount we offer is personalized to each customer. This means we may increase your Spot Me Now offers over time as we get to know you better.
Using Spot Me Now won’t affect your credit score if you repay your instalments on time. If you default on your instalment repayments, this might not affect your credit score, however, it will affect your eligibility to access future Spot Me Now offers.
Paying your Spot Me Now instalments on time generates increased trust on your Spot Profile. This in turn, allows us the opportunity to offer you optimized and personalised services based on the good standing of your profile.

If you were to take R1000 credit, when you activate the Spot Me Now you’ll be charged a R280 upfront. The R30 is non-refundable and the R250 is your first instalment. If you do not use any of the funds, the R250 will be refunded back to your Spot Money Primary wallet; and the remaining available amount will fall away. You only need to pay back what you spend, not the full amount that you accepted when activating Spot Me Now. After 10 days, we’ll recalculate your remaining instalments based on how much you spent.
