PayPal Credit

PayPal Credit offers your customers quick access to financing, so they can buy now and pay later, at no additional cost to you. You are not charged when customers choose PayPal Credit, and pay only your normal PayPal transaction fee.

On July 2, 2018, Synchrony Bank becomes the issuing bank for PayPal Credit — a change that brings a significant expansion of available offerings. To learn more, see: PayPal Credit: The shortest distance between you and higher sales.

According to a recent study, nearly 40% of PayPal Credit users say they spent more online because financing was available. Plus, their transactions are up to 68% larger than credit/debit purchases.1As reported in Neilsen’s PayPal Credit Average Order Value Study for activity occurring from April 2015 to March 2016 (small merchants) and October 2015 to March 2016 (midsize merchants), which compared PayPal Credit transactions to credit and debit card transactions on websites that offer PayPal Credit as a payment option or within the PayPal Wallet. Nielsen measured 284890 transactions across 27 mid and small merchants. Copyright Nielsen 2016. To learn more, see PayPal Credit on the PayPal website.

Give your sales a boost when you advertise financing. PayPal helps turn browsers into buyers with financing with PayPal Credit®. Your customers can pay over time, while you get paid up front – at no additional cost to you. Use PayPal’s free banner ads that let you advertise PayPal Credit® financing as a payment option when your customers check out with PayPal. The PayPal Advertising Program has been shown to generate additional purchases as well as increase consumer's average purchase sizes by 15% or more.

You can easily add free, ready-made banner ads to pages of your stie, and the PayPal Credit button to your shopping cart during checkout to remind your customers that financing is readily available.
