GetBucks - Loans to suit your financial needs

GetBucks is a registered credit provider with the National Credit Regulator and the MFSA.

Having an established for approximately 7 years, we have maintained the trust of our clients, regardless of the fact that we are still “young” in the credit industry.

Having said that, clients can be rest assured that they will not only be getting the best service, they can also trust our authenticity and rely on our prompt loan application feedback.

Adhering to your financial obligations

We understand that life gets rather difficult sometimes and you might be in a bit of a financial strain.

We also understand that some things are beyond your control and there might be reasons that may hinder you in ensuring that you fulfil your financial end of the bargain.

Having said that, clients have to understand that we have a business to run and if you don’t read the terms and conditions and fully adhered to them, should you fail to repay your quick loan on time, it might be difficult for GetBucks to help you whenever you are in financial need.

Doing every little bit to help

It is better for the sake of maintaining a good financial record and upholding a good relationship with the credit provider to not take a loan if you know you might not be in a position to repay us. 

Convenient loans at your fingertips

The loan application has been designed to give the client convenience and a sense of understanding the process, this also gives the lender a better idea of the type of client we are dealing with.

Client profile

This part is where the client usually fills in the nitty-gritty. GetBucks wants to know a little more about the client.

The reason we want to know is so that we can get a little bit more insight into the client’s life, likes and dislikes. We are building a relationship after all, not a periodic financial transaction. Therefore, we need to know our people.

Salary and expenses

Knowing how much you earn and how much you spend on a monthly basis is purely on the basis of affordability. Even though you might be in need of an online loan, you might not have sufficient funds to repay us after you have settled all your monthly bills.

Verification and accuracy

After you have filled in all your details, we then need to verify if every detail is indeed correct, factual and a true reflection of the client.

Unless you are absolutely sure that you will do right by the credit provider, don’t put yourself in a difficult position that will compromise your financial standing in the future.

GetBucks - Affordable short-term loans

With all the excessive documentation, you are then led to your ultimate fate: loan approval or disapproval.

Should you qualify for the loan, you will then have the option of choosing a payout method that is suitable for you and if you don’t, you will then be given the reasons as to why you were not granted the short-term credit and what you need to do to be approved the next time you decide to apply.


Should you fail to repay the loan for a period both agreed upon by the client and credit service provider, external creditor's collections will have to intervene and take over your account. In the event of the external collections company failing to get the repayment back from the client, you will have to be handed over to a legal action.

The unfortunate part about failing to pay off your personal loan is that the credit bureaus will have to document the unresolved debt and your financial file will be tarnished for quite a number of years.
