Do I have a credit line and how much is it?
Yes you do. Here's how it works: after you've been approved, Comenity Capital Bank will open a PayPal Credit account with a credit line equal to the amount of your purchase or $250, whichever is greater.
You can continue using PayPal Credit to make purchases. If those purchases cause your outstanding balance to exceed your credit line, then you will be evaluated for a credit line increase. This evaluation happens seamlessly during the checkout process. You don't need to do a thing. Best of all, your checkout won't be slowed down. Here's an example of how this works:
If your first purchase using PayPal Credit is $150, your initial credit line will be $250.
If you make another purchase for $300 before your bill is paid, PayPal Credit will determine during checkout if your credit line can be adjusted to $450.
If you then pay $350 toward your first bill, you will have $350 remaining on your credit line. If you want to make another purchase using PayPal Credit for more than $350, PayPal Credit will determine during checkout if your credit line can be adjusted again.
You can always continue to make additional purchases up to your outstanding credit line, and we will consider increasing your credit line when your purchase goes above it.
