Hi folks. 

We've been monitoring your comments and have had it confirmed that Trade-in is not available with PayPal credit. 

You can use our trade in if you choose to pay with Klarna and Samsung Finance which both offer the opportunity to spread the cost of your purchase.

You can find out about all of our ways to shop on our website.

May have been a glitch @B82 

I noticed that the trade in box kept disappearing too.


Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²⁴ Ultra 512Gb ~ Titanium Black.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

Following... I'm not sure this is a glitch, it just appears to be a way of getting consumers to open Samsung's own finance package. The website for this promotion is terrible, even the call centre staff have no idea why its happening! Chat experts disconnect whilst you try numerous times to speak with them. Hopefully  a mod will be able to update?

It will be one or the other. You will not be able to trade in and get a heavy discount, then paypal credit the balance. I would buy new with PayPal credit, sell your old phone and use the money to pay off your paypal credit

As someone who works closely with the FCA and follows the Consumer Credit Directive daily I'm pretty sure there are rules against forcing people down a particular finance route. My guess is they earn more finance commission from the likes of Glow/Karna so they're pushing people with a smaller balance in that direction. Samsung advertise Paypal credit as being available on every page all the way through to the final page of checkout, therefore in my opinion it should be available regardless of if you have a trade in or not. Very poor.

I am having the same issue. No paypal option despite Samsung stating everywhere they accept Paypal. Nor can I add Paypal as a payment option to my Samsung Pay. Is the Samsung Pay using Paypal a US option only? Klarna and Samsung finance is all well and good, but both want a £70 upfront payment! Come on Samsung, sort it out. I have used Paypal for all my Samsung products! Now I am unable! Not great!

Am having the same issue in England. Called PayPal. told me that when you applied trade in to buy the phone, it can't work out the transaction because of it and will not be available when buying the phone. They said it is a Samsung problem. I talk to Samsung via their website, pointing out the weblink on their official website saying that you can apply trade I with PayPal credit. They refused to budge or to take down the webpage after I told them that it was false advertising .I couldn't save the transcript of the website page when I click on the options and accidentally disconnected. They didn't connect me back (since I asked her to talk to her manager).

Unfortunately their customer service is rubbish. Their products are very good but they don't see how bad it is to advertise these trade in offers with their latest products ( on their biggest reveal of the year), only to get to checkout and see no option for PayPal. Was told by PayPal to remove trade in to be able to buy the phone, but then I lose the value of the trade in which is over £400. Over a third of the price of the phone. I have bought their latest products which they should be able to see via Samsung Members but am forced indirect to pay more.

I think that in England it is illegal because of false advertising. Isn't there someone on these forums who is a lawyer and can look into this?
