You can avail the EMI Snooze feature to defer your EMI payment for one month. Once opted, your current month EMI will be pushed to next month & regular EMI payment will continue from next month onwards. Once you choose EMI Snooze, you would have to pay accrued interest (for the month you have snoozed the EMI) along with monthly EMI payment of the following month. Customers can choose the EMI Snooze option a maximum of 3 times in a year.
You need to access your account by logging into the StashFin App. You need to first click on ‘Pay Bill & EMI’. Once you are on the ‘Pay Bill & EMI’ page, kindly click on 3 dots on the right top hand side, you will get ‘Snooze my EMI’ option and avail it as per your eligibility.
Yes, there would be a fee charged as per Annexure A which is mandatory if you avail of EMI Snooze.
StashFin is a lending platform which works with multiple lenders to provide access to a seamless loan procuring process. This fee is used to defray the costs incurred by some of our lending partners for the purpose of altering the loan amortization, temporarily stopping NACH payments and extending loan tenures. Lending partners also need to bear charges in altering NACH instruction and changing the reporting format for credit bureaus.
No, once you avail the EMI Snooze feature for the given month; no bounce, late payment or any fee would be charged.
Once you avail the EMI Snooze feature, the bureau reporting will be suspended for the opted month.
The Customer needs to apply at least 5 days before each EMI due date to avail this feature. If the timeline has passed, your EMI mandate would be presented to your bank for clearing.
You can only avail the option once the loan is converted to EMI, otherwise, the amount will remain due & payable.
No, the fee associated with EMI Snooze feature is non-refundable and will not be adjusted on any future EMI payment.
The Customer can choose this option 3 times in a year & 5 times during the entire loan tenure. The moment customer opts for EMI Snooze feature, the loan tenure will get extended by 1 month.
The EMI Snooze option is only available for customers whose account is in good standing (i.e. they have no overdue payments). For customers who have overdue charges, they are requested to avail the EMI Snooze option customers after clearing their overdue payments.
StashFin is a lending platform that works with multiple banks & NBFC’s. At this point, we have reached out to our lending partners to seek their approval along with an understanding of the process in order to offer loan moratoriums. We will inform you once we have heard from our lending partners. In the meantime, please keep adequate funds in your account so that your EMIs are cleared and your credit bureau are not adversely impacted.
Update - March 28, 2020, 12:00 PM:
We have notified all our lending partners out of which some have responded and asked for more time as any change in loan repayment terms needs to be coded in their systems. This entire process has become more time consuming due to the availability of only limited staff. We know this is important for StashFin’s customers and we are constantly striving to find a solution. We will inform you as soon as we are notified by our lending partners. In the meantime, please keep adequate funds in your account so that your EMIs are cleared and your credit score remains intact.
Update – April 2, 2020 10:00 AM:
The ongoing COVID-19 situation is a moment affecting our families, businesses and communities. At StashFin we are with you, in this together. In light of the later COVID-19 flare-up, we have been working hard with our lending partners to offer flexibility in deferring their EMI payments. In consultation with our lending partners, we are extending a moratorium for all customers who wish to defer their EMI payments provided their account was current (not overdue) as of March 31, 2020.
To avail the EMI moratorium, customers are requested to opt for EMI Snooze feature which can be accessed through our ‘StashFin’ App. Through the EMI Snooze option, customers can extend their EMI payment by one month. Each customer can avail the EMI Snooze option a maximum of 3 times during the year. Customers need to choose the EMI Snooze option 5 days before the due date of their next EMI payment. If the timeline has passed, Customer’s NACH EMI mandate would be presented to their respective bank for clearing. Any EMI which is due in less than 5 days, will need to be paid or cleared successfully to avoid any late payment charges or penalties. We are here to assist our customers to maintain their financial well-being, hence, once they opt for EMI Snooze, no bounce charges, late payment charges or penal interest would be charged from the Customer for that particular month’s EMI.
The EMI Snooze option is only available for customers whose account is in good standing (i.e. they have no overdue payments). For customers who have overdue charges, they are requested to avail the EMI Snooze option after clearing their overdue payments.
In conformity with the guidelines issued by the RBI, the interest amount will accrue throughout the moratorium as per the applicable interest rates. The term of the loan gets extended by a month each time the customer chooses EMI Snooze. Therefore customers are advised to make an informed decision and pay regular EMIs to avoid any additional accrued interest charges.
StashFin is a venture backed digital lending platform that provides quick and easy personal loans. StashFin was started by a team of former financial services professionals dedicated to disrupting traditional lending in India.
StashFin ensures an efficient end to end service delivery process including application, documentation and quick approval in as little as 4 hours from the time of application.
Any Indian citizen residing in India, above the age of 18, with a proof of current employment, earning a monthly salary of ₹15,000 and above, a bank account and a valid identity and address proof can apply. In case of self-employed individuals, we require submission of last 2 years’ IT returns.
You can get instant loans starting from ₹500 to ₹5 Lacs for a tenure of 3-36 months.
Our convenient web and mobile platforms allow you to apply for loan at any time and on any day.
Our business hours are 10AM to 7PM IST, Monday to Saturday with the exception of Bank holidays.
We do not require a Guarantor for you to apply for a loan with StashFin but we may request one at our discretion in order to process your application if we feel that your personal profile does not currently meet our lending criteria.
StashFin loans start from 11.99% annually on reducing balance and a low processing fee. We do not charge service fees, prepayment fees, or any other hidden fees. Interest rates may vary from a case to case basis and the rates offered will depend on our assessment of your credit profile.
Most banks/ credit card companies/ NBFCs charge a variety of fees which may include prepayment fees and other hidden charges. You may end up paying a much higher amount than you do when you have a loan with us.
A higher credit score indicates that you have a good track record with respect to loans that you have borrowed in the past. Therefore, if your credit score is high (more than 750 in case of CIBIL TransUnion), your chances of being granted a loan are much higher than if you have a lower score. Additionally, you may be able to negotiate benefits such as a lower interest rate, higher loan amount, etc. by leveraging your high credit score.

To use a simple analogy, think of your approved credit line as a big water tank from which you can draw-down funds just like you draw water from a tap as and when you need. Think of the StashFin App and web based platform as a tap in this case from which you can draw-down only the funds you immediately need, thereby saving on interest costs you would otherwise have to pay on the entire credit line. Obviously, funds once drawn-down would be reduced from your overall approved credit line.
No. Only the funds you draw-down at one time are converted to an EMI, the amount and tenure are of your choosing. You may draw as little as ₹500 at one time and convert it to an EMI with a tenure ranging from 3 months to 36 months. These drawn-down funds constitute the balance on your card that you may use to make transactions.
For example, let us say you have an approved credit limit of ₹50,000 on your card and you make a draw-down request for ₹5000 on the App. Now, ₹5,000 will be instantly loaded on your card which you utilise in the following way:
Now, you need to make an electricity bill payment for ₹1,500, but since you’ve already used ₹4,000 (₹2000 + ₹500 + ₹1500) out of the ₹5,000 drawn-down and have only ₹1,000 left, you will need to make an additional draw-down request subject to a minimum amount of ₹500 and a maximum amount of ₹45,000 (the remaining limit on your credit line) in order to make the electricity bill payment using your card.
The entire amount that you load onto the Card gets converted into EMIs. In this case Rs. 20,000 that you loaded on to the card will get converted into EMIs.
If you are getting an “Error 024” message, it means that your loan obligations have increased or your credit profile has undergone a material change since the time your credit limit was approved. You can try to load more money on the card after 3 months.
As part of our Corporate Partnership Program, if your company is empaneled with us, we may offer 10,000 PAYBACK Points to new customers. To become eligible for the offer, you will have to draw down/ load atleast Rs. 30,000 on your StashFin Card within 3 months of Card registration.
The points will become available within 45 days of the 3rd EMI provided all the EMIs have been paid on or before the EMI due date. The account should be in good standing with us. It should not be overdue and there should be no delayed payments.
The amount that is loaded on the card gets converted into EMIs. We cannot access the funds on your card. Hence once you draw down money on your Card, you start paying interest on it.
StashFin Elev8 is a mobile application based online platform which makes it easier for anyone to borrow cash in a fast and convenient manner. StashFin Elev8 offers a series of small ticket size loans. As the customer pays the loans on time, the customer can improve his/ her Credit/ Bureau profile and can become eligible for larger loans from StashFin. StashFin Elev8 customers will also be offered a premium StashFin Credit Line Card once they climb up the Elev8 ladder.
Getting cash from StashFin Elev8 is a very simple process. Here is all you need to do:
Your eligibility and loan limit are decided on the basis of “StashFin Elev8 Score”. StashFin Elev8 Score is an internal measure of a borrower’s credibility and his/ her likelihood of paying back the loan on time. The score takes into account various information about the borrower such as financial profile, social networks and behaviour data.
The score is dynamic and keeps evolving as we obtain greater data on the user. Therefore, good behaviour and timely loan repayments will help a user increase his score and get better loan terms over time.
The loan limits are generated automatically based on your StashFin Elev8 Score. With regular use of Elev8 and by making timely repayments of your loans, you can increase your StashFin Elev8 Score which will help to unlock larger loans with lower rates and fees over time.
The loan limits are generated automatically based on your StashFin Elev8 Score, which might not be sufficient for a higher limit at this point. However if you pay your existing loan on time, you could become eligible for a higher amount after the Due Date of your existing loan.
The documents required for registration are:
Once your loan is disbursed, the money will reach your Bank Account within 1 working day.
For a first time borrower, we want to make sure that we transfer the money to the right account. This also helps to confirm that the customer will not face any unnecessary issues while repaying loans. Therefore, we ask the customer to transfer Re. 1 using debit card. This amount is instantly refunded back to the customer.
The fees charged from the borrowers is the sum total of processing fees and interest charges. We charge a flat processing fee of Rs. 25 to Elev8 customers for loan amounts over Rs. 2000. The interest rate varies according to the loan amount. As a customer repays his loans on time, he may be offered repeat loans at lower interest rates. The borrowers are notified of the exact charges at the time of loan application.
You can repay your loan on the StashFin App by following these simple steps:
Alternatively, you can pay on the StashFin website by visiting https://www.stashfin.com/login and logging into your account. Click on “Pay Now” button on left hand panel. You can make the payment before the Due Date without any prepayment penalties.
You could make a prepayment without any penalties. An early loan payment would not reduce the fees as notified at the time of application. However, early payment is regarded as good behaviour, and could help improve your StashFin Elev8 Score and get a higher limits and better loan terms over time.
Any delays in the payments will incur penalties and could also deteriorate your StashFin Elev8 Score. The penalty starts as low as Rs. 15 per day and increases upto Rs. 25 per day, depending on your loan amount and time period since the amount is overdue.
In the unfortunate event that you default, StashFin could report the defaulter data to credit bureaus. This could make it difficult to get loans from banks/ NBFCs at good terms in the future.
The users who have at least 1 loan disbursed from StashFin are eligible to share their referral code to invite their friends/family.
