  • I run a vape shop web directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that additionally markets CBD product lines. A Month later, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop submission site. We do not offer CBD goods such as CBD oil. We simply provide web marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a good look, you will see that they offer for sale a somewhat considerable range of CBD product lines, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to different firms. Because of this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has constricted my payment choices and now, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is absolutely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a systematic benchmark to all companies. I am still to get in touch with yet another lawyer from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
