Buyers in the United States can again finance their purchases with Barclays or PayPal Credit. Barclays is available for purchase from £ 399, with 12 mths of payments. PayPal credit, however, is available with minimum purchases of £ 99 and can be spread over 24 mths of payments.
Interestingly, the ly change here seems to be that the PayPal credit has been removed from Apple's dedicated financing page. Previously this page boasted both Barclays and PayPal financing, but the latter was completely removed from the page with Apple saying that you can "spread the cost with Barclays 0 percent funding."
To use PayPal credit, buyers should look for the "Down payments" secti under "Payments and Billing" during the checkout process.
It is still unclear why Apple removed funding optis in the first place, ly to bring them back less than a mth later. It seems that the company wanted to put a little more emphasis Barclays financing at 0%, as opposed to the 14.9% PayPal credit.
