    I operate a vape shop directory site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that likewise advertises CBD goods. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape store directory. We do not retail CBD goods such as CBD oil. We simply provide promotion and marketing services to CBD firms. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health and wellness Retailer and if you take a close look, you will see that they supply a somewhat substantial stable of CBD products, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It appears that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to different companies. Due to this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has limited my payment possibilities and presently, I am greatly reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have talked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is entirely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform standard to all firms. I am still to get in touch with an additional legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. In the meantime, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
