Thank you for your response. Most of the folks here are struggling to easily use the promotion offered by PayPal - no interest, 6/12-months. So, how can I setup to pay for the 6-month promotional period in 6-months, using autopay which is linked to my bank account?
Yes, you can make automatic payments. Here’s how:
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Click PayPal Credit.
- Click Make a payment.
- Click Automatic payments.
- Select the amount to pay each month.
- Select the payment method.
- Click Continue.
- Review your payment details and click Agree and Schedule Payments.
Note: your payment will process on your payment due date each month.
If you haven’t linked your accounts yet, you won’t be able to schedule automatic payments. To link your accounts, visit www.paypalcredit.com.
I hope that helps. 🙂

Thank you for your reply. It does not, however, address the limitation on autopay to pay ONLY the minimum OR the full amount. There is no way to pay MORE than the minimum on autopay.
Why isn't there an option under Automatic Payments to pay more than the minimum? AutoPay only allows the minimum payment or the full balance.
As others have mentioned, there is no way to setup to pay MORE than the minimum automatically.
The option to pay more than minimum is available under the One-Time payment. WHY isn't this available under automatic payments? Can we request this to be added? If it is in progress to be added in the future, can you tell us when?
I would like to setup my bank account to use their electronic bill pay to pay my paypal credit account on a biweekly basis as this allows me to "set it and forget". And in order to do so, I need an account number. My bank already has bill me later in their system, all I need is an account number. Or if that is not an option, does paypal allow you to set payments on a biweekly basis that does not end?
Thanks in advance
I have the same problem and I am shocked to see the response above from Paypal!
It looks like Paypal customer support have no clue how their system works.
So the bottom line is...we can't make recurring payments to paypal using our bank bill pay?
@RTBoss It appears that we can set up recurring minimum payments or we can setup recurring payments of the full balance, but there is no way to pay MORE than minimum to pay off the balance in time.
I am interested in a class action on this. Seems like leaving this option OUT of autopay insures that without a lot of hassle on our side, we will end up paying the interest anyway.
Just pay for an attorney if you want to start a class action lawsuit. It starts as a private issue between you and your attorney.
Just do it.
I still can't find the automatic payment options as described previously. This is a basic feature of all credit cards in this day and age. The only reason not to have this feature (or have it easily accessible) is to increase the chances of a customer missing a payment and thus incurring interest and late fee charges. Underhanded practices that should be the subject of legal action.
