  1. I look after a vape shop directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that additionally markets CBD product lines. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store directory site. We do not retail CBD product lines such as CBD oil. We merely offer promotion and marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Wellness Store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they sell a reasonably extensive variety of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It seems that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to many different companies. As a result of this limitation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restrained my payment choices and now, I am seriously contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they explained that what PayPal is doing is completely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a consistent benchmark to all firms. I am still to check with one more lawyer from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
