    This is an excerpt from an email that I received from PayPal pulling my ability to accept credit cards from customers.


    The PayPal User Agreement states that PayPal, at its sole discretion,
    reserves the right to limit an account for any violation of the User
    Agreement, including the Acceptable Use Policy. Under the Acceptable Use
    Policy, PayPal may not be used to send or receive payments for firearms,
    firearm parts or accessories, ammunition, weapons or knives.


    Looks pretty darned unfair to me.

    I hereby pledge to NEVER send or accept money through Paypal. And I'm writing them to let them know why. I knew they were anti-gun, but they aren't even letting vendors sell holsters -sometimes. Other vendors have for years, no problem. Either way, I'm done. Anyone I'm buying from here, hope you'll take a money order.

    My account has been limited. I really just don't know what to say. What a bunch of liberals.

    My account was limited for trying to purchase an Item when I had just arrived in Egypt. I keep forgetting to get it unlocked. Oh well.

    That's BS, ebay checkout uses paypal. And last time I checked there are all sorts of firearm parts, accessories, weapons, and knives.

    I agree,
    Feel the same way about Walgreens too, after that stunt they pulled on that employee who defended himself a couple of months ago. But then again! There's so many companies out there who support gun control. I think it was American Rifleman, that had a list over companies some years ago about their anti gun support.
    I remember on of them was Levis Strauss. Now who in the world would have thought that a cowboy/biker image company like that is actually anti gun.
    Things are never what they seems to be sometimes.

    The rules are always different for different people, groups, owners, etc .. It's a shame that gunpal went under, but they were probably doomed from the start. Somebody needs to start a competitive operation and NOT put "gun" in the name.. Name it something like "sendcash".. Ron

    I recall reading a thread about a year ago about a guy who had the same problem, only with Bank Of America.
    Another anti gun corp.

    That's your multi-billion dollar idea there, Ron. It would likely take over like Netflix did to Blockbuster.

    I know it won't help you for tomorrow but you should look at the merchant services that your bank has to offer. This way you could eliminate having to use PP. I hate Pay-Pal, I prefer to pay with money orders.

    I went with another online company. Got it handled tonight. Hopefully it will work out. If it doesn't, I will "bite the bullet" and go to my bank. I should have gotten that set up immediately. My own fault. I loved PayPal until tonight. They screwed me. Lesson learned.

    I didn't see your recommendations until it was too late. I won't tell you who I went with. You'll probably tell me all kinds of horror stories about how they're gonna rip me off.
