    I took out a loan on Barclays to purchase a Macbook Pro a couple years back and have finally settled recently. I had the choice between Barclays and Paypal Credit when I purchased my iMac 4K back in Dec-Jan however it is no longer an option on the UK Apple store?

    Also can someone please tell me is it possible to transfer a Paypal Credit loan balance to Barclays Partner Finance or any other bank? (I don't like how you can use the Paypal Credit that you pay in it's an endless cycle....)

    We recently chose to use PayPal credit when buying on the Apple Store, and opted for their 12 month 0% finance offer.

    I didn't like the Paypal credit option either - having a credit account meant you need to be cautious when using paypal as the credit account is the default option for payments. I paid it off early and closed the paypal credit account.

    As for your question, I doubt you could transfer it - but you could get a loan to pay it off.
