  • Someone trying to get your personal data (name, address, KTP ID, etc.) to impersonate you on registering for PayLater 

How to prevent fraud to my Paylater account?

Fraudster is tricky and will try to find new way to get access to your PayLater account for misuse though there're several things you can do to reduce potential fraud :

- Make sure you never share your username, password and OTP to someone else

- Try to minimize login into Traveloka from computer or smartphone which do not belong to you. Login into someone else's phone or using someone else's computer will increase the probability of your username/password get stolen

- Safeguard you PII (Personal Identifiable Information) so that it is not getting misused by fraudster. PII covers all the information which can be used to impersonate you in taking loan or credit card from Banks / Financial Institution. Example of PII :

  • full name
  • date of birth
  • KTP ID (all information in KTP)
  • mother's maiden name
  • phone number (including home)
  • email address.

Never give these information to someone else offering you a service to registering paylater on your behalf  

Is there any indication which I can use to see if I'm being targeted by fraudster ?

There're several things you can use to indicate that you're being targeted by fraudster :

  1. Someone calling you to ask an information that belongs to PII category
  2. You receive an SMS contaning OTP or confirmation that you're applying to certain loan while you never applied yourself
  3. You receive an SMS/email indicating a password reset attempt or receiving an information that someone has logged in to your account in Traveloka from an unknown location while you never logged in yourself
  4. You receive an SMS/email/instructions to open an unknown website and to put your Traveloka username/password/OTP into the website
  5. Other indications which you think is out of place (e.g.: receiving an email saying that you've made a hotel/flight purchase using PayLater while you did not remember making such purchase)

What should I do if I saw indication of fraud ?

Please contact our CS immediately so we can investigate it.

You can contact us here: https://www.traveloka.com/contactus

Is Gestun prohibited ?

Gestun practice in general is prohibited by Bank Indonesia and OJK.

Who is the gestuner actors ?

Gestuner is the person whom offer the gestun service. Usually these people come to you offering to cash out the loan taking from Paylater, or even offering you to make new PayLater account and ensuring you can cash out. They'll ask you to give your PII data which might compromise you later on.

What should I do if I'm being offered Gestun service or service for creating new Paylater account?

You should decline the service and you should never give any PII information requested by the gestuner. You might also call CS so we can investigate further.

What can I do to ensure I use my PayLater credit wisely ?

Best practice of using credit is to ensure you're not borrowing more that what you can pay.

How do I calculate my payment capacity in using PayLater product ?

Common guideline of taking credit is to ensure not taking more than 25-30% of your take home pay (eg : net salary) or not taking more than your monthly discretionary income

Discretionary income = net salary - monthly expense (i.e. mortgage payment, insurance, food and transport expense) - savings target

My limit in PayLater is bigger compared to my payment capacity. What should I do ?

You're the best person who knows your financial condition. Please exercise and use your credit wisely to not exceed your payment capacity. PayLater is committed to deliver product that matches your needs. Please ensure you're submitting the accurate data (including your salary) so we can deliver the best experience for you.

Which tenor should I choose when taking PayLater?

The tenor choosen will be dependent on your needs. Longer tenor will give you lower monthly payment with the longer period, whereas shorter tenor will give you faster time to pay off the loan and with higher monthly payment. Common guideline used in choosing the tenor is to calculate whether the monthly payment required still within your discretionary income.

Is there any negative impact from late payment?

As much as possible, please avoid late payment. Payment on time will build a good discipline on payment habit and enable you to better manage your monthly expense by avoiding paying late fee. Moreover, payment on time will result in good credit history and enable you to enjoy the full benefit of using PayLater product.

How to build a good discipline to make payment on time?

Each person will have their own style on building up good discipline to make payment on time. For starter you can do the following :

  1. The due date of payment might come on later day. Spare and put aside the money which you got at hand to pay the loan
  2. Set a reminder on when to make payment (e.g. : use calendar reminder in your phone)
  3. Paylater has the ability to send push notification as reminder on your due payment. You need to make sure your push notification setting is enabled via your Traveloka account settings and allow your smartphone settings too.
  4. Paylater also sends you email reminder before you are due as reminders and a monthly billing email as well.
  5. Do what you deemed fit to be used as reminder (e.g.: have your spouse helping you to keep track of the payment)

I'm currently in financial trouble. Can I still take loan from PayLater ?

If you're currently in financial difficulty, the rule of thumb is to avoid piling up more credit. Taking additional loan will increase your credit burden and missing payment might incur late fee.

If I'm late on making my payment, will I get contacted by debt collector?

If you're late in making payment, you'll get reminders. The reminders can be in the form of SMS, email, notification, and phone calls.

The purpose of reminders is not to pressurized you, but more as a checkpoint to prioritize the payment to avoid additional late fee and bad credit history.

What happens if I do not pay at all?

If you're not paying at all, your payment will be considered late, your PayLater credit facility will be suspended, and you'll have bad credit history. On top of those, you'll also incur late fee. Taking a loan with the intention of not paying at all is generally not a good practice in terms of both moral and financial obligation. We would suggest you to plan ahead and calculate your payment capability before applying for the loan (see the FAQ point on how to calculate your payment capacity)
