Paypal Smart Connect Credit Limit Increase: What to Do When You Need Additional Credit

Look around the Internet and you will surely see people in forums asking how they can get a Paypal Smart Connect Credit Limit Increase. It seems like nearly as soon as these cards started to land in people's hands, they began to ask questions about how they could get additional funds on the card that they just received.

This is largely because so many people would like to have as high of a credit limit as they can possibly get. They know that a higher limit means a greater potential for them to spend more freely and even to build credit. It is not easy to get a all on your own though. Fortunately, DoNotPay can help.

How to Get A Paypal Smart Connect Increase on Your Own

To ask for a Paypal Smart Connect credit limit increase may seem like jumping through a lot of hoops. While it may be unfortunate, the purpose of the company may be to:

  1. Have a very firm control over who gets a credit limit increase
  2. Give out very few credit limit increases
  3. Have human eyes run over every application for a credit limit increase

Other credit issuers have moved towards offering users the opportunity to request a credit limit increase entirely online. Paypal mandates those who wish to get a credit limit increase to apply for one by calling a toll-free number and speaking with a representative of the company. This is often:

  • Frustrating
  • A deterrent to those who might not feel comfortable speaking on the phone
  • Not a guarantee that the limit increase will be approved

It seems that if you want to go about getting a credit limit increase all on your own, you will be hard-pressed to do so with the Paypal Smart Connect card. You are going to have to really work at it. Either that, or you could try to use DoNotPay to help ease the process a bit.

Things to Consider Before Requesting a Credit Limit Increase

Just because you can leverage the power of DoNotPay to make it potentially a little easier to get your credit limit increase does not mean that it is the right time to do so. Some people have found that they should have waited a little longer or considered forgoing the credit limit increase altogether for a variety of reasons. Those who are going through a career change for example would probably be in better shape if they waited.

Other considerations include:

  1. How much income do you expect to have going forward?
  2. How many open lines of credit do you already have and your ability to pay them off?
  3. What is your purpose for your increased credit limit in the first place?
  4. Are there better cards with lower interest rates potentially available to you?

You don't want to jump at the opportunity to get a credit limit increase just because it is available. If it makes sense in your particular situation, then that is one thing, but trying to get one just because you feel that you deserve it is not a wise move.
