This example is based on your using PayPal Credit in future purchases either from us or other retailers.


    Am I eligible for finance?

    The short answer is, you probably are! Our credit provider carries out credit checks and has a few requirements for offering finance but please make sure you meet these simple requirements

    • Your order is £99 or more
    • You are 18 years or older
    • You are a UK resident, and have been for more than 3 years
    • You can make regular direct debit payments
    • You are in regular employment, or permanently live with a spouse who is in regular employment
    • Have a credit/debit card in your name that is registered to your current address
    • You have a good credit history, and have received no CCJs

    How long does it take to apply?

    That depends how fast you can type! There are no lengthy applications to complete, you're just asked a few short questions and you can get an instant decision.

    What details should I have to hand?

    You don't need much - if you already have a PayPal account then usually you'll just have a few questions to answer, if you don't have a PayPal account you just need to register with them.

    What if I am declined for finance?

    When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined. This can often be caused by one of a number of reasons, but usually it will be caused by a negative credit score or a default on an existing loan. We've done our best to make it as easy as possible for our customers that aren't successful in applying to continue their order and pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal Wallet or Bank Transfer - it really is as simple as clicking "complete my order using a different method". And as always, if you have any concerns please do get in touch.
