If I pay late, will there be a fee?
PayPal Credit will charge a late lee for each month that a minimum payment is not paid in full by the payment due date on your statement. The amount of the late fee will be the amount of the missed payment; up to $25 the first time you are late. If you're late again, the late fee will be up to $35.
Does PayPal Credit protect me from liability for unauthorized charges?
Yes, PayPal Credit provides "zero fraud liability" protection; the same protection provided by most major credit cards. This means you are not responsible for unauthorized charges.
PayPal Credit has been designed with other features to help protect against unauthorized use of your account. Your identity is validated with top-of-mind information such as date of birth and the last four digits of your Social Security number. This means there is no account number that can be lost or stolen.
Do I have a credit line? If so, how much is it?
Yes. Once you open a PayPal Credit account you will have a credit line, which we call your "buying power."
When you have completed your first purchase using PayPal Credit, Comenity Capital Bank will open a PayPal Credit account with buying power equal to the amount of your purchase or $500, whichever is greater. You can now use PayPal Credit to make additional purchases. If those purchases would cause your outstanding balance to go above your buying power, then we will evaluate if you are eligible for more buying power and increase your buying power if you are. This happens seamlessly during the checkout process — you don't need to do anything and it won't slow down your checkout.
On an ongoing basis, your buying power will be either the highest total of balances you have had outstanding on your account at any time or a lower amount of which you have received notice, but will not be less than $500. Here's an example of how this works:
- If your first purchase using PayPal Credit is $350 dollars, your initial buying power will be $500.
- If before you pay your first bill you make another purchase for $300, we will adjust your buying power to $650 (if you are eligible for higher buying power).
- If you then pay off $350 of your first bill, you will have $300 of buying power remaining. If you want to make another purchase using PayPal Credit for more than $300, we will increase your buying power again (if you are eligible for higher buying power).
You can always continue to make additional purchases up to your buying power limit, and we will consider increasing your buying power when your purchase goes above it.
What does Subject to Credit Approval mean?
PayPal Credit is a credit account that you can use to make purchases. Comenity Capital Bank will review and consider your credit report and other credit related information prior to opening your account and establishing your buying power. Creditworthiness is determined by Comenity Capital Bank. This process happens in a matter of seconds as part of the PayPal Credit checkout process. Once you are a PayPal Credit customer, you can rely on your buying power to make purchases. If you make a purchases that would cause your outstanding balance to go above your buying power, we will review your credit history and history with PayPal Credit to instantly determine whether to increase your buying power.
Do you check my credit report every time I make a purchase?
No, we pull a credit report on your first purchase and occasionally when you ask us to increase your buying power. We do periodically get updates to this report but these updates have no impact on your credit score. We review your account quarterly. If for any reason we reduce your buying power, we will notify you in writing of the reason.
How do I increase my buying power with PayPal Credit?
You increase your buying power by attempting a purchase that is above your buying power, we will treat that as a request to increase your buying power. We will take into account your credit history and history with PayPal Credit to instantly increase your buying power if you are eligible. This happens seamlessly during the checkout process — you don't need to do anything and it won't slow down your checkout.
