Using PayPal Credit to book your event

PayPal Credit is currently in the testing phase. This means that the payment option will only be available to a portion of our users. 

When you book on GigSalad, full payment is due at the time of booking. Because this can become pricey, we're now testing a credit feature that allows you to pay in installments with PayPal Credit

How it works

Using PayPal Credit is similar to applying for and using a credit card. You'll be subject to credit approval and given a credit limit large enough to cover the booking total. PayPal Credit purchases are interest-free if they are repaid within 6 months. Be sure to read the terms provided by PayPal prior to booking to ensure you can meet their requirements for repayment.

Once approved, you'll confirm the booking and PayPal will provide GigSalad with the total booking amount to be passed on to the vendor. No further payments will be due to GigSalad or the vendor directly. Instead, you'll set up a repayment plan with PayPal, just as you would any credit card or bill.

Ready to book?

Once you have a quote you're happy with, proceed to the booking page. There you'll be presented with your payment options. If you've been opted in to our PayPal Credit test, it will be one of the Payment Methods shown. If you do not see this option, unfortunately, you will not be able to use PayPal Credit to check out at this time.

If you select PayPal Credit and proceed with booking, a new window from PayPal will open over the checkout page. You'll need to sign in to PayPal or create an account to proceed with the credit approval process. Once approved, you'll confirm your booking and you're all set!


Booking amount: PayPal Credit is only available for bookings over $99. We felt that PayPal's credit terms for bookings less than $99 weren't beneficial to our users, so we've limited this option for now.

Canadian users: Unfortunately, users in Canada will not be able to use PayPal Credit. The processor we use for these transactions is not supported in Canada.
