Who can get a loan? What matters affect the granting of a loan?
You can apply for Special Consumer Credit if:

- you have regular income from pay or a pension
- you have sufficient repayment capacity
- you have managed your personal finances well, and
- you have a permanent residence in Finland.
The maximum loan depends on several factors. The loan offer you receive from us is based on your circumstances and how you manage to cover your expenses with your income. We always want to make sure that the size of a loan is suitable for your situation and that you won’t have any problems in repaying it.
Can I pay off Special Consumer Credit with a shorter payment plan?
Yes. Special Consumer Credit is flexible. You can repay a larger amount than the agreed monthly repayment at any time or pay off the loan in full without any extra charges.
When applying for the loan, you agree on the size and schedule of repayments for paying back your loan. However, you can easily change your repayment plan at op.fi without any extra charges. You can change the amount of each repayment and the due date and set a grace month.
Can I get a grace month on Special Consumer Credit repayments?
Yes. You are annually entitled to one grace month on your Special Consumer Credit. During the grace month, you don’t need to repay your credit and related interest. The grace month is the same calendar month every year.
The change takes effect in the next month's billing. The already-created bill may not be changed.
Costs of Special Consumer Credit
The costs of Special Consumer Credit consist of interest and the loan servicing fee, as well as the loan amount.
The size of monthly repayments depends on the loan amount and the loan term. You can choose the 1st, 8th, 16th or 24th day of the month as the due date. The loan terminates when the last instalment has been paid.
Costs of Special Consumer Credit:
- Credit interest rate, 3-month Euribor + 7.95% (7.4% in January 2021)
- A monthly loan servicing fee of 6 euros (covers the credit establishment fee and invoicing fee).
Special Consumer Credit is a one-off loan: the effective annual interest rate for a 10,000 euro loan with a 5-year payback period would be 9.01% if the credit interest rate were the 3-month Euribor + 7.95% percentage points (7.4% in January 2021) and the loan servicing fee 6 euros per month.
The estimated total amount payable would be 12,341.01 euros. This calculation is based on the assumption that the loan is drawn down in a lump sum and the loan interest and charges and fees remain unchanged throughout the loan term. It also assumes that the loan is repaid in monthly instalments of 206.9 euros up to and including the final instalment.
The loan is granted by OP Retail Customers Plc

Because Special Consumer Credit is an unsecured credit, you do not need any collateral or guarantor.
You are annually entitled to a one-month grace period for your credit when you do not need to repay your credit and related interest. The grace period is the same month every year. The change takes effect in the next month's billing. The already-created bill may not be changed.
You can amortise your loan in addition to your normal monthly instalment. This extra repayment does not defer the next instalment or payment date. The extra repayment is not subject to a charge.
To make an extra repayment, you need the number of your loan which you can find in the Loans section. After that, go to "New payment" under the Daily banking services section and enter your loan's number in the "Payee's account or IBAN" field. Then proceed as instructed. The amount of your extra repayment is debited to your account on the same day.
