You do not need to sign up for PayPal credits.
"The new name of PayPal's Bill Me Later" is exactly what it sings about: "PayPal Credit": This is a credit line that you can use through PayPal. If you are requesting PayPal credit, enter your date of birthday and the last four numbers of your Social Security number, and their Comenity Capital Bank affiliate will let you know if you will be accepted "in seconds" as specified in the Frequently Asked Questions.
Once you' re authorized, you can get a loan of at least $250, and in some cases you can get a small extra credit, such as $10 back. Wherever PayPal, "and tens of millions of other shops " are accepted, you can pay with PayPal credit for up to six month without interest.
- This is a line of credit. The institution as such will conduct a rigorous investigation of your credit reports, which may lower your creditworthiness by a few points over time. - Like any credit or debit cards, you will be charged PayPal credit for delayed payment. - Currently, a support representative on the telephone explains that PayPal does not notify your credit activities to the credit bureau after the first request to setup you, which means that your activities on this credit line will not impact your credit rating.
Failures do not harm him, but good behaviour does not make him better. - After your $10 starting (when you receive this offer), there are no larger bonus payments such as a redemption or milestone card. But the most important rewards for this credit line is that you get additional credit line payment and for many customers this is not very astonishing.
Briefly, PayPal credit is quite harmless, but also quite useless. One of the best things you get out of the line of credit is extra times to pay for bigger buys, but if you can't afford to buy discretionary items in the bar today, you probably shouldn't buy them. Registration can also result in more consumer purchases:
As TechCrunch reports, PayPal customers are spending 30% more after registering for a credit. Though you may choose to really buy this item now (or you may have computed it and determined that the cash you don't use to settle this personal bill will generate greater yields if it' reinvested over the relatively brief period of six months), the only good thing you would do with a line of credit that doesn't influence your creditworthiness if you try to camouflage poor credit behaviour, i.e. expect to be able to do so.
If you are not able to make the payment when the bill comes through, as with any credit cards, it will bill you a sum of money. The PayPal in its initial shape is already quite practical - so why not just stay with it?
