How does Pugster Bill Me Later work with PayPal?
When you check out with PayPal in Pugster, select Bill Me Later as your payment method.
A window will appear on your screen asking for your birth date and the last 4 digits of your Social Security number. Once you accept the terms, approval takes just seconds; Bill Me Later will then be added to your PayPal account automatically. And if you have an existing Bill Me Later account, It'll be added to your PayPal account as soon as you complete your purchase.

It's a smart idea to link your PayPal and Bill Me Later accounts—you'll be able to speed through checkout, manage your accounts in one place at PayPal.com, and even pay your Bill Me Later bill with your PayPal balance. You can also keep track of all your purchases.
