  • How much will I get paid for each lead that I refer?

    Genfin offers a competitive referral fee structure with same day settlement of the payment of the loan to your successfully referred customer (i.e. lead resulted in an approved loan).


    For each successfully referred customer you will received the following referral fee:


    Where loans are structured with an upfront fee:

    10% of the interest levied on the first loan granted

    5% of the interest levied on the second loan granted to the same client

    Where loans are structured without an upfront fee (such as a bridging agreement), we do not know our final revenue until settlement of the loan and as such we offer:

    0.5% of the capital advanced to the client

    With both structures, referral fees are paid upfront simultaneously with the advance of the capital to the client.  We do not claw back any referral fees in the unfortunate event of default on the loan. We do place a cap on the referral fee of R60,000 per approved loan. As such, you can earn as much as R120,000 per client.


    For example:

  • When do I get paid?

    The payment of your referral fee is a function of the success of each loan application. You only qualify for a referral fee if the lead that you referred resulted in a loan approval.


    You will receive your payment on the same day the loan is paid out to your client.
