Mobile Phone Finance FAQ's


Qualifying for credit

Deko can only consider your application if you have a good credit history. If you do not meet the finance criteria of the lender you may be offered an alternative finance product. The lender requires us to perform a credit search to assess your eligibility which may leave a record on your credit report. You need to pass a credit score when you apply. Meeting the criteria does not guarantee acceptance.

How are my monthly payments made?

All monthly payments are paid by direct debit from your personal bank account. Typically the first payment will be due around one month after the date of the finance agreement. Subsequent monthly payments will be due every month for the entire length of your repayment period, usually on the same date in the month.

What is a Credit Search?

A credit search occurs when a third party investigates your credit report. They’re looking to see how you manage your credit now, and how you’ve managed it in the past. This search may then be recorded on your credit report for other third parties to see. This is useful to lenders because if you’ve made multiple applications for credit recently, it could suggest to them that you have an urgent need for credit which you may struggle to pay back. In order to offer the best accept rate for customers the Deko platform may perform more than one search. We will always perform a search on behalf of the first lender, who offers the best representative APRs (annual percentage rate of interest). If this lender declines your application we may repeat the process with a second lender. These searches could be a combination of ‘soft’ quotation searches (which do not remain on your report) and ‘hard’ credit searches (which do remain on your report). The type of search we perform is dependent upon the lender in question and their instructions to us based upon their lending criteria.
