Reducing your balance
If you're able to do so, we recommend paying off more than your minimum payment every month, as this can positively impact the overall interest you'll pay.
If you're concerned about the amount of interest you're currently paying, please contact us.
Top tip: if you're using your credit facility to purchase an expensive item, such as a sofa, making a payment upfront can help reduce your monthly payments and the amount of interest you'll pay.
