PayPal Credit

For UK customers, PayPal Credit lets you buy all the latest looks now, but spread the cost over monthly instalments. It’s a quick and easy process that lets you shop now and pay later, on orders over £99.

• Have a good credit history

• Have not recently been declared bankrupt

• Are employed and have an income greater than £7,500 per year

What Is PayPal Credit?

Letting you spread the cost of online orders, PayPal Credit is a simple and flexible credit limit that’s attached to your usual PayPal account.

Alongside your PayPal account, PayPal Credit lets you view your balance, manage payments and check monthly statements online. You don’t have to fill out a long application, just answer some quick questions, review and accept the terms, then get a decision in seconds.

How does PayPal Credit work for future purchases?

If you’re approved for a credit limit with PayPal Credit, you can use it to pay for your Footpatrol order, as well as future purchases from Footpatrol and other retailers, until the limit is reached.

Footpatrol orders currently qualify for a special interest rate of 0.0% when you spend £99 or more and repay within a 4 month period. The typical cost if you buy from somewhere else is 21.9% APR variable. PayPal Credit sometimes makes special offers or promotions when the interest rate might be lower.

Representative Example

Purchase Rate p.a. Representative APR Assumed Credit Limit
21.9% (variable) 21.9% APR (variable) £1200
