Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Pawn shop (I want to borrow)

We only lend to people over 18 years of age with a valid ID.

Up to 70% of the current market price depending on the type and condition of the goods.

The interest rate ranges from 0.9% to 4.8%. The amount of interest depends on the amount borrowed. The higher the amount, the lower the interest. The minimum interest charge is 130 CZK.

Our contract is clear and transparent, and in it you’ll find exactly how much you’ll be paying.

The contract is negotiated for 28 days; interest is calculated by weeks, and you won’t be charged for any unused weeks.

We'll deduct each unused week.

Paying off the loan is up to you. If you no longer want the collateral or can’t come to collect, then your obligation also ends on the same day your contract ends. The goods then become our property. We will resell the goods to cover our debt.

If you pay the interest on the day your contract ends, you can extend it again for another 28 days.

If you pay the amount borrowed plus interest on the loan by the end of the pawning period, your goods will be transferred back into your possession and the item will be returned to you.
