On the Billing page you can choose between a Credit Card and PayPal (you have two tabs under the Payment methods section).

Once you choose PayPal, you need to select how much you want to pay and then click on blue PayPal button. You’ll be redirect to the PayPal Checkout page where you need to complete the transaction. After transaction is completed, it’ll redirect you back to the Billing page and your balance will be updated.

Hello, ater click on blue PayPal button the only option on the screen is to pay with credit card

yes, ‘how do we pay with balance?’, this paypal option is baseless without it, it is going to take the money from my card anyway, why do you give such option then?

Hello, I’m not able to pay with my PayPal balance too, It’s showing: “PayPal Balance: Unavailable for this payment”.

Hi there, you should be able to use your PayPal balance if you select to sign in when you are presented with “Pay with PayPal” screen. This option is available to users even if their PayPal balance is in a different currency than USD with PayPal offering a conversion to USD.

Also, selecting “Stay logged in for faster purchases” avoids having to sign in every time you opt to pay using PayPal. I hope this helps.
