The PayPal Credit icon is a special icon that can be found in the lower left hand corner of your PayPal page. This icon is meant to let you know that your payment has been made, but what does it say and why should you take action?
The icon basically tells you how long the payment was actually made. It also lets you know when the payment was processed, how much money was withdrawn, how many payments were made and when, as well as how long the payment was made for.
If you pay with PayPal everyday you will see this icon appear on your screen every day. This icon is useful because it shows you exactly how much you have paid. If you do not pay back promptly this icon will turn red, which means the payment was made but the money has been withdrawn before the repayment has been completed.
You do not need to worry about withdrawing your funds from your bank or card provider directly. Instead you can just log into PayPal and pay off the payment using your card. This means the money is already withdrawn before the payment is actually made.
There are a few ways to get your PayPal credit icon to show. For example if you are paying someone who charges high fees, you may find that the charge will not show up when you use PayPal. In this case you will need to contact your payment provider to ask that they show the icon. The easiest way to do this is to click on the 'View History' tab and then click on the icon that shows you the fees being charged.
If you choose not to go through this route then you could check with your bank that the payment you have received is a legitimate one. You will have to do a bit of digging though, because many payment providers will refuse to show the icon for certain fees. A simple search online should yield plenty of results of providers who may be able to show the icon.
You can also make changes to your PayPal account settings to enable the icon. You can change these settings at any time either by following the link available or by going through the PayPal support website. You will need to follow the instructions carefully to ensure that your payment settings are right for you. After setting the icon, you may have to wait a while until the icons show up but at least you will be able to check on the status of your payment.
The icon should change from blue to green when the payment has been made. If it does not show after a couple of days then you may have to try again or ask your payment provider. Another . . . . . . option is to log into PayPal and then to confirm the payment.
When it comes to checking on the status of a payment, the payment icon is one of the easiest and most reliable ways to keep track of how much you are paying each month. It can also let you know how much you owe. If you keep track of the payment you will always know where you stand financially.
