Using Paypal Credit
How do I use PayPal Credit?
You can use PayPal Credit just about anywhere PayPal is accepted. To use PayPal Credit, simply checkout using PayPal and select PayPal Credit as your payment method.
How does the "No Interest if paid in full in 6 months on purchases of $99 or more" offer work?
You'll have the option to pay No Interest for 6 months, on qualifying purchases of $99 or more. As long as you pay in full by the promotion expiration date, you will not be billed interest for that purchase. Minimum payments are required. If you do not pay in full, interest will be charged from the purchase date and will be billed to your account. You must pay in full to avoid accrued interest from the purchase date and you must make your minimum payment requirements to avoid late charges.
How do I select PayPal Credit as my preferred way to pay?
At checkout, you’ll have the option to select PayPal Credit as your payment method. You can also set PayPal Credit as your preferred way to pay. That way, as long as you have available credit in your PayPal Credit account, every purchase you make with PayPal uses your PayPal Credit account as the preferred way to pay. Additionally, some merchants have a PayPal Credit option at checkout. If they do, you can simply choose that option.
How are my minimum monthly payments calculated?
Minimum monthly payments are required in accordance with the standard account terms. It is very important to note that the required minimum monthly payments may or may not pay off your purchase by the end of the promotional period. If you want to ensure that your purchase is paid before the end of the promotional period (to avoid interest), you should schedule additional or larger payments accordingly.

Is there a fee for late payments?
Yes, you will be charged a late fee for each month that the minimum payment is not paid by the payment due date. The first time you’re late, the amount of the late fee will be the same amount as the missed payment, up to $27. If you’re late again, the late fee will be up to $38. However, the late fee will not exceed $5 if the minimum payment due is less than $27
