Spread the Cost of Your Pre-Owned iPhone at Fonestore.co.uk with PayPal Credit

At Fonestore, we provide a fantastic way to get the best and newest tech at the most affordable prices on the market and we do that by tapping into the power of pre-owned. By buying a fully tested pre-owned smartphone, as opposed to one that’s factory new, you get to enjoy all of the benefits without the extremely high cost (anyone who’s bought a new iPhone X Sim Free will know what we’re talking about).

Now, we know that our prices are better than you’ll find anywhere else, but even at the ridiculously low cost that we offer them at, they can still set you back a few hundred quid and we understand that not everyone has that kind of cash just lying around to spend on a pre-owned smartphone. The good news is that there is an alternative way to pay that divides the cost up into much more manageable chunks.

From 6 to 24 Months

When you opt for the PayPal Credit option for your pre-owned iPhone, you can spread the cost over a period of your choosing between 6-24 months. In fact, if you can manage to pay back the full balance for your pre-owned smartphone within 4 months, you won’t pay out any interest at all. That’s right, 0% for 4 whole months!

This means that you can enjoy all the features of your pre-owned iPhone, pre-owned iPad, pre-owned iPod or even pre-owned Apple Watch safe in the knowledge that it won’t leave you with a big hole in your bank account and that you’ll be able to pay it off in a nice, comfortable and controlled way.

Protected Customer Rights

We have backed up our flexible payment options with the same level of consumer protection you’d get when buying a new iPhone, iPad, iPod or Apple watch as we offer both a 12-month warranty and a 2-week change of mind period. This means that if your device were to develop a manufacturer’s fault (and every smartphone has that potential to do so, whether new or pre-owned), you can get it fixed for free. It also means that if at any point in the first two weeks, you change your mind about your purchase, you can get your money back, no questions asked.

We don’t think we can say fairer than that!

Enjoy low monthly payments with PayPal Credit

What is PayPal Credit?

PayPal Credit is like a credit card, without the plastic. It’s a credit limit that’s attached to your PayPal account which you can use for your online purchases.

What credit offers are available?

If your basket is eligible, a selection of instalment offers will be displayed enabling you to spread the cost of your purchase across a number of monthly payments. Fone Store instalment purchases qualify for 16.9% p.a. for the length of the selected instalment plan.

With instalment offers from PayPal Credit you get:

  • Regular monthly payments – you pay the same amount each month to help you plan better
  • A credit limit linked with your PayPal account that makes it easier to buy everything you need

How do I apply?

Applying for PayPal Credit is easy. Just click on the PayPal Credit button on our checkout page. A selection of instalment offers will be displayed, enabling you to spread the cost of your purchase across a number of payments.

The application form takes minutes to complete. PayPal will then run a credit check and, if approved, you’ll have a credit limit linked to your PayPal account as soon as you accept your Credit Agreement.

You can use the credit limit granted to pay for today’s purchase and future purchases at thousands of online stores where PayPal is accepted, up to your credit limit.

Before you apply, please make sure you:

  • Are a UK resident aged 18 years or older
  • Have a good credit history
  • Have not recently been declared bankrupt
  • Be employed and have an income greater than £7,500 per year

Do I need to reapply if I already have PayPal Credit?

If you already have PayPal Credit, you can take advantage of these offers without having to reapply as long as you have enough available credit limit. Just select one of available instalment offers and check out with PayPal Credit.

Do I need to have a PayPal account?

Yes, however if you don’t have a PayPal account, you can create one as part of the PayPal Credit application.

Signing up for a PayPal account is free and easy; all you need to do is provide your email address, create a password and accept PayPal’s User Agreement.

I do not see PayPal Credit as a payment option?

For PayPal Credit to show as a payment option, you will need to ensure that the items in your basket are eligible for PayPal Credit and that you have a minimum spend of £99 within your basket.

What do I do if I am unsuccessful in applying for PayPal Credit?

If you have been declined for PayPal Credit, PayPal will send you more information about why your application was unsuccessful. You can still use PayPal to complete your purchase.

What happens if I want to return the item I bought using my PayPal Credit?

Just return your purchase as normal and the money will be refunded to your PayPal Credit account.
