There's no extra charge for this as long as its paid off within six months. After six month PayPal will start charging you for every day you're late. So pay it off in time to avoid this.

The good thing about this is the company or person you're purchasing from gets all their money right away. This means it'll be shipped to you right away even though you haven't paid for it yet.

So I thought I'd make this guide to show you how to set it all up. The set up is a one time process. After that you just chose "Bill Me Later" when ever you want to use it when you check out.

Use any shopping cart that offers you to use PayPal as a payment method.

That's really all there is to it. You'll receive a bill (email and on PayPal account). As long as its paid off in less than 6 months it won't cost you any more than a regular PayPal purchase.

But be warned. The late fees aren't cheap. I don't recommend cutting it close. If I'm making a $400 purchase. I'd pay it off $100 a month so I'll have two months to spare.

Well I hope this is helpful to someone. I find it helpful in balancing out my budget for my hobbies. :)
