Change Paypal Credit as default payment setting for Paypal

Here are the instructions for changing to or from BillMeLater as your primary source. It would not let me be any more specific in my preferences than to either have Bill Me Later as my preferred method, or “other sources” as my preferred method.

  1. Hover over Profile and then click Money. (Not one of the options under Money. The actual word Money).
  2. On the My Money screen, to the far right of your Bill Me Later listing, click Update.
  3. On the upper right, there is a box called Manage Bill Me Later Account.
    –If Bill Me Later is currently your preferred method, click Change.
    –If Bill Me Later is not currently your preferred method, click “Make Bill Me Later My Preferred Payment Method.”
  4. Save your new settings.
