How will my Instacash be repaid?

Instacash repayments are automated, making it easy to pay on time and replenish your Instacash so it's ready when you need it next! You will owe the amount that you borrowed plus any fee for turbo delivery (only if selected!) and any optional tip you chose to leave (thank you). There's no interest charged.

Here's how automated Instacash repayments work:

  • If you have a RoarMoney account, we'll automatically deduct your repayment once your Instacash is due. If there is not enough balance in your account, we will deduct a partial repayment and try again the next day, until the Instacash is fully repaid.

  • If you do not have a RoarMoney account, or if your RoarMoney account doesn't have funds to cover what you owe, we will use the alternate debit card you designated for Instacash repayments. If there is not enough in your balance, we will try later when you have a balance or a deposit is expected.

  • If repayment from your debit cards is not successful for more than five days, we may then attempt a debit on your eligible account (typically, the linked checking account where we can detect paycheck deposits). Your bank or credit union will choose whether to reject or cover the transaction in case of an insufficient balance in your account. If they cover the transaction, you may be charged an overdraft fee. Yet another reason to use your RoarMoney account for payments and everyday expenses—we’ll never charge you overdraft fees!

We recommend you have a RoarMoney account funded when it comes time for repayment to ensure quick Instacash repayments and seamless Instacash access! You can transfer funds into the account anytime right in the app. Plus, every time you use your RoarMoney account, you're protecting your hard-earned cash from overdraft and other bank fees!
