Thought this might be useful as we have more expenses near Christmas time.

Spend £150 or more and you get 4 months interest free. Pay that off before you have to pay any interest. You can then spend £150+ on another item and you get 4 months interest free as well.

* Any remaining balance due after the 4-month promotional period or any transactions under £150 will be charged at 17.9% p.a (variable)

It's useful, but I signed up under the equivalent of Jo Doe rather than John Doe about a decade ago. I'm now having a terrible time getting paypal to process the name change of the account because they at some point assumed Jo was my legal name. Signing up to paypal credit makes them do a credit check against Jo Doe who doesn't really exist and I get denied.

Not strictly relevant but something that might affect others.

I would assume it's a credit check each time you add a fresh balance? So, yes again and again is feasible but it will hit your credit rating each time.

Successfully received £800 credit. Dunno what to do with this though

They give you a balance depending on your credit rating. You don't keep applying. I have £4000 available to myself on mine. When you buy something, it deducts from that amount and then adds back on as you make payments. It works just like a credit card without the physical card.

Oh and be careful when checking out as it will automatically choose paypal credit on every paypal order no matter the price. Just a heads up for those who don't want to end up putting something on credit they don't want to.

​Cousin went through this. Absolute nightmare to change to his real name. I think he just gave up in the end & lost whatever balance he had in his account

I signed up and got £2800 credit right away! Used it to pay for a holiday to Copenhagen at Christmas and I have until end of March to pay interest free. Fantastic.

This has been around for like a year now, how is this now a new deal?? X)
I use it all the time though, great if you want to buy something that's on offer a few days before payday.

Thank you op, heat added

I've found Paypal Credit useful for spreading the cost of Monarch flights as they don't have a surcharge on Paypal payments (whereas Monarch do charge extra for paying by Credit Card).

Negative. 4 months run out very fast. There are so many credit cards like virgin, Sainsburys and tesco which allow interest free purchases for 24 months so why take a risk for 4 months when you can have flexibility of 24 months.

Ahh that old chestnut. You do realise it's a two-sided relationship, right? People only post deals if they're good and then they need other users to add heat.

So even if they don't post deals they may will be contributing.

Just got offered £4000 of credit after a very basic application that took about 30 seconds. Where is the catch here?

​Yes this is not a deal. Has been there for long time. Most big traders like Argos give 6 months credit for purchases. I love to buy things from abroad but not keen on getting credit from them. In America they offer PayPal credit card with very easy terms and long interest free payments but this side of the pond charge so high interest rate and only 4 months free Interest on purchases.

​The catch is the high interest rate when your 4 months run out. Why get 4 months when you can get 24 months free Interest with other lenders on the high street and low interest after 24 months.

It's revolving credit, you get a credit limit and any balance is taken from it. There's no credit search everytime you use it. Much like a credit card.

Some retailers do offer longer on purchases. Box.co.uk offers 12 months interest free for example. This is £150 interest free for 4 months on all purchases, but you can find better offers depending on the retailer.

Why encourage others to get into debt for Christmas - really hate all these types of ads. When I want credit I will go to the internet and do a search for it. Its not a deal and not the cheapest credit card at all.

Surely people shouldn't be applying for credit if they can't be responsible with it?!

I'm not suggesting this as the only means of credit. Not sure why you think I am.

Imagine your partner loses his job or is sick, money is so tight. The kids are looking forward to Christmas you want to make them happy - then you see this - most of this country is now run on credit including the government so how to blame Joe Blogs when its in your face all the time. Many people are now going bankrupt just to wipe out debts they will never afford to repay - not because they have not tired but because the interest on credit is so high, latest ad on TV had over 1,000% interest - I checked it 3 times, of course its in the small print and aimed at those really hard up at there was a very small limit (think £500).

I get what you're saying, but people shouldn't be racking up loads of debt they cannot afford to pay back for things like iPhones and TVs. They have a responsibility for their own actions too. Nobody points a gun to their head and tells them to do it.

Sounds quite good, better than most credit cards tbh, considering its 4 months for every purchase rather than in a set time limit, still havent checked out the paypal credit thing yet

Can't believe Paypal is getting heat. You should really have a look at paypalsucks.com.

And seriously people applying for credit then asking what they can buy now?! It's. Not. Free. Money!

​It's worth pointing out that this can be used for second hand eBay bargains - not many shops selling such things on the 'high street'. I've been using mine for a year or so, brilliant if used sensibly.

This sounds like Very BNPL, which I think is great but others moan about like crazy! Either way, good idea if you intend to clear the balance!!

​What makes you think PayPal will give you credit without a good rating. That is why they do a credit check like everyone else. Their criteria is exactly the same. PayPal also charges £5 for printed statements while all credit card companies provide paper statements for free.

​Other credit cards can be used be same as well if linked to PayPal account. Ebay is very good for second hand items and PayPal very good for overseas purchases I agree but not for credit.

Nice deal shabbird. Heat added.
