Skip to main content – How to Apply

We have received many requests about what is involved when applying for a loan with Wonga. The process is very simple and straightforward, and only takes a few minutes! See more detail below:

Step 1: Visit the website

The first step is to go to the Wonga website at and select the amount you require by using the sliders. New customers can apply for a loan of up to R4000, and existing customers can apply for up to R8000.

The first slider controls how much you are applying to borrow, while the second slider controls your repayment period.

With Wonga, you can choose to repay your loan from only four days, or up to a maximum of 6 months.

Step 2: Click on Apply Now

The second step in the process is to click “Apply Now” and enter your personal details, which only takes a few minutes. Please ensure that you enter all your details correctly, as this could result in your application being declined. You’ll need to upload a recent proof of income document, either your payslip or bank statement.

Step 3: Get confirmation

When your loan is approved, Wonga will transfer the money to your bank account – how long it takes for the money to be in your account is dependent on your bank and when you applied for the loan. You can apply for a Wonga loan 24/7 from any device – so you can easily access a short-term loan whenever you need it.

We recommend Wonga as the best loan company in South Africa. Be sure to visit our website for regular updates on Wonga.
