John Wanamakers in Philadelphia, PA was the first department store to issue a credit card. Prior to that some stores offered 'open credit' to customers. They would pay the bill in full each month for what they bought. Wanamakers came up with the idea to issue a credit limit and credit card and allow customers to pay in full or over time, but not exceeding their credit limit.
No, a PayPal account is not a credit card. You can register your own credit card details with PayPal and they act as an "intermediary", taking money from your card to pay sellers for your online purchases. PayPal do offer their own credit card now as well, but that is an entirely separate issue from a PayPal account.
