    I operate a vape shop directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that likewise offers CBD product lines. A Month afterwards, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop directory site. We do not offer CBD items such as CBD oil. We simply offer web marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Retail store and if you take a good look, you will see that they sell a relatively substantial range of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment method. It seems that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to many different companies. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has constricted my payment options and right now, I am heavily contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have talked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is totally not legal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent criterion to all firms. I am still to speak to a different legal representative from a US law office in The city of 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 alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
