A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store web directory. We do not offer CBD goods such as CBD oil. We simply offer internet marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Retail store and if you take a close look, you will see that they sell a comparatively substantial series of CBD items, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It seems that PayPal is administering double standards to different firms. Because of this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has restricted my payment options and presently, I am intensely reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is absolutely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a systematic criterion to all firms. I am still to talk with a different lawyer from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
