About PayPal Credit
What is PayPal Credit?
PayPal Credit is like a credit card, without the plastic. It’s a credit limit that’s attached to your PayPal account which you can use for your online purchases.
How much will my credit line be?
To determine the size of your credit line we use the information you provide in the application form along with internal PayPal data and an external credit check.
How does the ‘0% for 4 months’ offer work?
0% interest for 4 months is available on single transactions of £150 or more. It applies automatically to any purchase made using PayPal Credit in excess of this value, except those to which another Promotional Purchase Offer (such as an instalment offer) applies. You can use this offer as many times as you like as long as you have an available credit limit.
Any remaining balance due after the 4-month promotional period or any transactions under £150 will be charged at 17.9% p.a (variable).
If you fail to make minimum repayments on time or in certain other circumstances, PayPal may remove your offer. Please see the Credit Agreement for more details.
