Heard something the other day about Paypal will begin prohibiting firearm or firearm related items from being purchased using their platform. I sent them a message requesting clarification. The sent me to the “prohibited activities” section of the legal agreements snd i saw this. Note section (j) and (k). Does this actually mean what I think it does?

Prohibited Activities

violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.

Don’t think I would either, but sometimes ordering online, some places use PayPal as the only option.

PayPal is notoriously antigun and anti- LE. I hate using them but our FOP lodge only uses paypal for our dues. I don't get why the don't change.

Yeah, Paypal has, for years, been notoriously freezing people's accounts who it believes have made firearms purchases using its services. It freezes both the buyer and seller, according to numerous people on various forums, and various vendors on their sites. As David said though, get a Paypal debit card and they legally cannot stop you from using it to buy as many guns, gun parts, and ammunition as you please. grin

I never keep a balance in my account and when I’m doing business I’m very direct with the person I’m dealing with about can and cannot be in the description. Don’t want an account freeze.
