PayPal shuts me down for selling Weapons!


Recommended Posts

Hello:

 

I am sill waiting for some sort of reply from PayPal..they have 1 more day in their 3 day reply time..so they say.  I am still very upset over this simply due to the fact that they won't even tell me what I sell that is prohibited.  

 

To make things even more interesting I do not or ever had any PayPal logos, shopping carts or their "Buy It Now" features on my site. All I did was mention that I accept PayPal on my "Payment options"..  I am really working blind here....

 

If I hear anything I will let ya all know ASAP as to what transpired..

Well..it is official..I sell illegal and deadly weapons.. Yes all..I am 100% guilty of selling (gasp..) SWORDS!! Yes..that is  is what got me shut down.. Apparently swords are illegal to sell as far as PayPal is concerned and there is no appeal of this decision..So I am taking the next step once I figure out who I call first.  More as things progress...

Wish I could drop an anvil on them like in Roadrunner cartoons.....

 

Not having paypal was a problem for me on occasion, its just a difficult and expensive option in this country........sort of a relief to now know I can go ahead with my life like they never existed.

yeah, PayPal is a PITA at times but they did come in handy for my overseas suppliers when I ordered the horns from your part of the world..as well as rayskin and other exotic leathers..

 

UPDATE: (The hits keep on comin')..PayPal just shut down my wife's account (she had one for "house stuff" as well as getting paid for her sports column/articles  ...she is a writer for professional wrestling..[there are several pro wrestlers that want to storm PayPal on our behalf and  pile drive a few folks for real..] so she is in he same mess that I am..) and they shut down my son's  PayPal and he has noting to do with this at all...and he still lives out west..!!  

 

This is starting to get funny when you look at it but I am still going to fight this...It is just not right...

 

More as things progress..

That is what is really getting under my skin..They allow all these others to take paypal and they shut me down?? 140K Plus folks selling swords?? and they nuke me?/  I am still rather  upset about all of this and I am now gathering he information I need  to see where I go from here..  

 

In the mean time I did set up with google pay and after speaking with them they have no problem as long as what I sell is legal where I am located...My google pay for business will take a few more days though..

Apparently yes, he did.

And this is also what the free market system looks like. There are plenty of ways to sell your wares online and accept payment from customers, or send money to suppliers. I prefer the ones that don't stick their hand too far into my pocket......

Still gathering intel on he PayPal situation.. Update on  Google Pay..my personal account is now active so I can now receive my royalty payments now problem there..The business account I am still waiting on he  activation number to arrive USPS.. Costs are reasonable... 1.25%.. even if they were as high as my VISA/MC charges those fees come off my taxes as legit business expenses so..

If you need further proof that PayPal is evil, there's this...

Basically, she set up a direct deposit account with them, had over $7000 deposited for her to use with a debit card, and they froze the account with no warning or responses to questions.
