FAQs

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

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.
