    PayPal Credit - Balance Transfer

    PayPal Credit - Balance Transfer 16th Mar 17 at 10:01 AM
    Hey all,

    Has anyone had any success in transferring their PayPal Credit account balance to a balance transfer credit card?

    I've found a few hints of success on the t'internet however most of these are US based and according to the lovely lady on the phone this morning, UK/EU based are not required and nor do they provide the option.

    Before I go and sign up for a balance transfer card, I wanted to be sure I had all of the information ready, so rang for my account number (they purposely obscure parts of it online and on statements.)

    Cheers

    You'll need a money transfer option, I believe.

    Am I right in assuming that they just drop the agreed amount into my account and then I pay directly to PayPal?

    Thanks again

    Curious to know how was the process of transferring your paypal credit balance to a new balance credit card. Cheers

    I'm guessing the OP didn't officially transfer the Paypal credit to another credit card. They got a 0% money transfer credit card. Transferred that money to his Paypal balance and then paid Paypal Credit off with that balance.
