Does Bill Me Later protect me from liability for unauthorized charges?
Yes, Bill Me Later provides “zero fraud liability” protection; the same protection provided by most major credit cards. This means you are not responsible for unauthorized charges.
And Bill Me Later has been designed with other features to help protect against unauthorized use of your account. Your identity is validated with top-of-mind information such as date of birth and the last four digits of your Social Security Number. This means there is no account number that can be lost or stolen.
Do I have a credit line and how much is it?
Yes. Once you open a Bill Me Later account you will have a credit line, which we call your “buying power”.
Once you have completed your first purchase using Bill Me Later, we at WebBank open a Bill Me Later account with buying power equal to the amount of your purchase or $500, which ever is greater. You can now use Bill Me Later to make additional purchases. If those purchases would cause your outstanding balance to go above your buying power, then we will evaluate if you are eligible for more buying power and increase your buying power if you are. This happens seamlessly during the checkout process – you don’t need to do anything and it won’t slow down your checkout.
On an ongoing basis, your buying power will be either the highest total of balances you have had outstanding on your account at any time or a lower amount of which you have received notice, but will not be less than $500. Here’s an example of how this works:
- If your first purchase using Bill Me Later is $350 dollars, your initial buying power will be $500.
- If before you pay your first bill you make another purchase for $300, we will adjust your buying power to $650. (if you are eligible for higher buying power)
- If you then pay off $350 of your first bill, you will have $350 of buying power remaining. If you want to make another purchase using Bill Me Later for more than $350, we will increase your buying power again (if you are eligible for higher buying power).
You can always continue to make additional purchases up to your outstanding buying power, and we will consider increasing your buying power when your purchase goes above it.
What does Subject to Credit Approval mean?
Bill Me Later is a credit account that you can use to make purchases. WebBank will review and consider your credit report and other credit related information prior to opening your account and establishing your buying power. Creditworthiness is determined by WebBank. This process happens in a matter of seconds as part of the Bill Me Later checkout process. Once you are a Bill Me Later customer, you can rely on your buying power to make purchases. If you make a purchases that would cause your outstanding balance to go above your buying power, we will review your credit history and history with Bill Me Later to instantly determine whether to increase your buying power.
Do you check my credit report every time I make a purchase?
No, we pull a credit report on your first purchase and occasionally when you ask us to increase your buying power. We do periodically get updates to this report but these updates have no impact on your credit score. We review your account quarterly. If for any reason we reduce your buying power, we will notify you in writing of the reason.
