PayPal offers short-term, installment payments and other special financing options that buyers can use to buy now and pay later, while merchants get paid up-front. Pay Later is included with the standard PayPal Checkout. However, specific Pay Later offers differ by country.

Pay Later in Germany includes the following:

  • PayPal Ratenzahlung - Eligible German buyers can pay in 3, 6, 12, or 24 monthly installments for purchases of 99€ to 5,000€.
  • Pay in 30 - Eligible German buyers can pay within 30 days for purchases of 1€ to 1,000€.

Pay Later messaging

Pay Later messaging lets your buyers know they can buy now and pay later, if they check out with PayPal. Adding messaging to your website can help improve conversion, attract new customers, and increase order values.

Pay Later messages are dynamic, enabling you to show your customers their specific Pay Later offer, based on the contents of their shopping cart.

Example message for PayPal Ratenzahlung at standard APR


Example message for Pay in 30


We recommend adding dynamic messaging throughout the shopping journey where customers see prices and subtotals, such as on product pages, the shopping cart, and checkout pages.

Pay Later button

Render the Später Bezahlen button in a one-time payment integration by passing enable-funding=paylater in the PayPal JavaScript SDK. For details, see enable funding.

You can render the payment buttons in a horizontal or vertical layout or as standalone payment buttons. When customers select the button, the Pay Later application starts in the PayPal Checkout.
