What is PayPal Credit?

PayPal Credit is a simple and flexible credit line that sits alongside your PayPal account. It is a paperless, cardless revolving credit limit.

If approved PayPal Credit is accessible from your PayPal account, allowing you to manage your payments, view your balance and check your monthly statements online.

How do I apply?

As long as you are a UK customer and have £99 worth of goods in your basket you will be eligible to apply for PayPal Credit.

There's no lengthy application to fill out, just answer some quick questions, review and accept the terms and get a decision in seconds.

We offer options to pay over 6 and 12 months with 0% interest - completely interest free! Or the option to pay over 18 and 24 months and pay just 14.9% APR interest.

How do I know which products are eligible?

As long as you have a basket total of over £99 you will be eligible to apply for PayPal credit. All of our products are included in this offer so you don’t need to worry about if the products you are looking to purchase are eligible!

What do I do if I am unsuccessful in applying for PayPal Credit?

Unfortunately, we have no control over the success or failure of an application - this is entirely PayPal's decision. If you have been declined, PayPal will email you with information about why your application was unsuccessful.

Don't worry, although you weren't approved for PayPal Credit, you can still use PayPal to check out securely with your bank account, debit or credit card.

Finance - Frequently Asked Questions

Am I eligible for finance?

The short answer is, you probably are! Our credit provider carries out credit checks and has a few requirements for offering finance but please make sure you meet these simple requirements

  • Your order is £99 or more
  • You are 18 years or older
  • You are a UK resident, and have been for more than 3 years

How long does it take to apply?

That depends how fast you can type! There are no lengthy applications to complete, you're just asked a few short questions and you can get an instant decision.

What details should I have to hand?

You don't need much - if you already have a PayPal account then usually you'll just have a few questions to answer, if you don't have a PayPal account you just need to register with them.

What if I am declined for finance?

When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined. This can often be caused by one of a number of reasons, but usually it will be caused by a negative credit score or a default on an existing loan. We've done our best to make it as easy as possible for our customers that aren't successful in applying to continue their order and pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal Wallet or Bank Transfer - it really is as simple as clicking "complete my order using a different method". And as always, if you have any concerns please do get in touch.
