About Us

Cash Converters began as a single store in 1984, in Perth, Western Australia.

Brian Cumins and a group of partners founded the brand with a simple idea - professionally purchase second-hand goods from the public and display them in a modern, genuine retail outlet.

Fast forward to the present and that idea has grown into an international franchise system that is constantly innovating, while expanding its product offerings to include small loan lending, pawnbroking and a whole lot more.

Today there are more than 700 stores worldwide, operating in more than 16 countries including Australia, Belgium, France, Italy, Malaysia, Namibia, Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and USA.
