Paypal - bill me later

(8 Posts)

Does anyone else have this? The last 3 payments I have made on ebay all come up as "bill me later" and the money doesn't come out of my account for a couple of weeks. Not sure that I like this and would like to turn it off! Can't seem to find much information about it. Can anyone help?

this suggests a scam?

It's a bit weird - all 'seems' to be in order, as in, I have received the items I've paid for this way so the sellers must be getting paid. The first time it happened I was paying for 'collectplus' postage and then the next 2 items went through the same way.

I would contact paypal direct and ask if I were you - it seems very strange.

I was offered this on a recent purchase and I just clicked no thanks.

I was offered a pay later option when paying for a normal shopping item from a UK site. I don't think it is a scam, but I like to know how much money I have got without any nasty surprises.

Yes me too! I could blow the budget quite easily this way!

I didn't notice the 'no thanks button' unfortunately.

Feeling slightly reassured now though. Thanks

ahhh, it may well be 'pay later' rather than 'bill me later, sorry

Still highly unusual though...funny there's not much info out there.
