Taking advantage of the desperate.
My Son was offered $50 for his expensive laptop computer at the Murray Bridge rip-off store.
He reluctantly accepted that. I inquired soon after as a potential purchaser of it.
I was told that it was $499. They would not negotiate a cheaper price and was told that it was worth more. Their tactics are shameful.

*** RUDE Customer Service from both STORE MANAGER and STATE MANAGER ***
In general, most staff members are friendly but I have to write this review particular to let public know that I feel disgusting with the service from this store. And urge people DO NOT interact with this store.
Basically, ordered an item online. Refunded by store saying "it was for another customer".
Ring store, got answer from store manager saying we won't do anything and you won't even get an apology for that.
Offered me $800 for a brand new iphone 12 pro max
offered me $800 for a brand new iphone 12 pro max, told me it was a competitive rate and they needed to make money too... LOL ended up selling it to a buy back service for $1300, dont be fooled by these jokers.
A total rip-off
I wouldn't recommend buying anything from them because they always rip people off and the staff are rude to their customers also the manager is rude and arrogant as well.
My druitt store nsw run by a fat guy who doesn’t know the law on mask excemptions who will be investigated on the right not to give proof
False Advertising on discounts if you pay back early in 7 Days
If you pawn an item to get a loan with them, and they advertised that you will get a biggest discount if you pay it back within 7 days, be aware that it means that you have to go back on the 8th day before you can get your item back. (Police regulation and Pawnshop Act).
But if you "beg enough", they will happily break the law.
They call it as doing you a favor (act of kindness). What a lot of nonsense.
Rude Staff and Extremely inaccurate valuations
I went into Cash Converters to sell something to them because I had heard of their buying and selling for money thing. I went into the shop and a rude employee came up to me and asked in an extremely rude way; "What do you want?!" I told her that I wanted to sell a monitor. She pointed me to the buying and selling area. When I got there, the guy who was buying the stuffs also extremely rude, and gave my reasonably new, almost no damaged monitor with all the cables and original accessories a value of just $5!!! On the website, it says that they ...have 'experts' look up the value of things, but this man just had one look at the monitor and said $5!!!! Absolute ripoff. I don't normally trust Product Review,(it gives Amazon.com 1.7 stars), but I was surprised at how accurate Product Review was his time.
Cash converters take from the poor and rip them off. They rob people who are down on there luck, You offer them expensive items & they give you next to nothing then sell it for triple what they gave you or for nearly retail value. It's a joke. disgusting behaviour.
they take you for a ride
Cash Converters take expensive items from people hard on their luck and in need of money, pay them a pittance for it, then sell it at retail price when the items are clearly used. I estimate they earn approx 200% to 300% on top of what they paid.
Don't sell to Cash Converters, sell online through your own means.
Don't purchase from Cash Converters cause they are not giving you any reasonable discount for the item being second hand.
Gave below market value on gold
Quote was not given market value
Did not weigh items in full view
Offered 10% of valuations
Disappointing experience not satisfied with the outcome
As reviewer angel a said DO NOT BUY ELECTRONICS FROM THEM. I have been burnt a bunch of times buying from cash converters. They electronics have a high chance of having something wrong with them. I.e. being faulty in some way. ive bought tech a few times that have reaked of cigarette smoke. Been modified in some way. Or just straight up faulty. They will lie and hide that there is something wrong with an item. They use Photoshop to make the photos blury in some parts to hide damage ect. Also some small items are pick up only which seems very su...spicious to me. Some items just listed are on sale? How is it on sale if its a newly listed item for the first time. They are very untrustworthy. They prey on people less fortunate pay $10 for an item ant then resell it for $100. Also will treat you like scum if your selling to them but if your buying from them your they best friend. I would say just avoid them all together and buy new at least you know what your getting
Osborne park walk in get loan against goods but little guy behind counter look fat people on Charlie and the chocolate factory move very very frightening towards me then went though a punch after told him leave me alone called head security that apparently in Melbourne ban me.
Usually many items to choose from
Good selection of second hand goods .
When comparing to new prices , ( for the same make or manufacturer , or brand ) the items in the store were grossly overpriced.
It`s unfortunate , but pricing really needs to be looked at , it`s not at all realistic.
Better buy new.
Lies don't help your business
You state that 100 points of ID are accepted online, after walking two suburbs, I was denied because my photo Id was expired. I have my Medicare, Birth certificate and more than 100 points, only to be told outright that I need Photo ID.
Don't lie to customers, this is deplorable. You legit screwed my entire day up by lying to customers.
Awful for selling gold
Where I am in Townsville they offer $10 a gram for 9ct gold .... that’s about a third of its scrap value with any major scrap buyer in larger cities. They charge a standard rate of $40 a gram for 9ct which is reasonable for purchasing - just never sell to them.
It also seems to be inconsistent with what cash converters will pay in larger cities which seems strange.
Questions & Answers
Looking for a Samsung TAB A phone it's about 7 or 8 inches

Can i pay a 2000 loan over 24 months
Very probably. You must be VERY desperate if you use rip-off Cash Converters. You will be paying thousands more in interest. BEWARE. This is from Cash Converters.
