Recently I sold a reloading press on Ebay and accepted PayPal for payment.
PayPal is an Ebay company btw.
Well, I have been banned from using PyPal because that violates their "Acceptable Use Policy"

My account has been frozen and funds in my account cannot be accessed for 180days.
Luckily, I only had about $5 in my account!!

Scary and I know it is there policy. I've bought some accessories through eBay and haven't been suspended. What does it mean you can't use your CC or bank account tied to the PP account?

As a retired banker, I have seen this happen numerous times. It almost takes an act of congress to get paypal to release funds until they are good and ready.

I’m sure.
Also, I’m very happy that I pulled a couple grand out of my PayPal account about three weeks ago.
I just find it stupid that EBay steers you toward using PayPal, and why wouldn’t they as they actually own PayPal, eventhough they know well what you are selling and what categories you are selling in!
Just fine to utilize their platform to sell firearm accessories (and pay for the privilege) but you better not use their transaction service to do so!!

Very odd since ebay has a plethora of reloading equipment for sale that show payment with paypal?

Are you sure you didn't include any powder or loaded ammo?
This is all that is prohibited in the firearms and other firearms related items.

Prohibited Activities
You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:..............

(j) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories, or (k) certain weapons or knives regulated under applicable law.

"Managed Payments", ebay calls this. Maybe they wanted PayPal's 3 percent.
I was happy enough with PayPal, reluctant to approve direct access to my checking account for ebay.
I'm still on the fence with this.

I have been banned from PayPal for years for selling a wood chipper when I lived in California where the buyer lived in Nevada and used a VISA card linked to an account in Mongolia. PayPal held the funds for 30 days before releasing them to me, then banned me for risky business. Maybe they had been watching the movie Fargo!

I've sold tons of gun related equipment on ebay for years and never had any trouble. The paypal deal is weird since ebay owns them but they are going to direct deposit.
It's hard finding a company that is not anti-gun.

They locked my account 1 time because I sold someone 1,000 pcs of .223 brass and the Idiot put it in the description. So they gave me the same ban you received. I'd sold tens of 1,000's of pieces of brass before this and almost everyone knew not to put anything firearm related in the Comments.
Anyway, after I explained to them that it was NOT loaded ammunition and basically nothing more than pieces of metal. Also, the brass would require so many steps plus other materials that the average person couldn't just turn the brass into ammo, Also your average Criminal wouldn't waste his time to reload it. I also told them that over on Ebay, there were 100's of ads selling the very same thing, all able to accept PayPal.
3 Days after they had issued the ban and lock, They rescinded the Ban and unlocked my Account.

PayPal was spun off from eBay in 2015.

Spun off as a business entity but still wholly owned by EBay

That’s where I’m at. I’ve lost a few purchases cause the seller wanted me to us PP. Why would any gun owner, 2A proponent use PP.

I would be most concerned that one can not remove bank information from the site

For small items i often send cash or receive cash. Gun guys can usually be trusted.

Check or money order works great. No big deal to cash them

PayPal is a publicly traded company. Symbol PYPL. Trades on NASDAQ. Anti gun for sure, but no longer owned by eBay.

Right now I'm happy with PayPal. A couple months ago I bought a rifle sling and cover from AnyaHunt, paying with PayPal. Finally received the items a month after ordering. Neither item was as expected or advertised. For more than three weeks I tried to get an authorization for return from AnyaHunt. The continually gave me the runaround saying how busy Customer Service was. Last Friday I went on PayPal and filed for a refund. The very next day AnyaHunt offered me a full refund. I am sure that never would have gotten around to refunding me my money if I had not gone through PayPal. And no, PayPal has not frozen my account for using them to purchase gun related items.

P.S. Stay away from AnyaHunt!

I've used Paypal for years, never had a problem. The one caveat is I NEVER state the money is for a firearm related item. I try to go the friends and family route, unless its on GB or Evilbay, I figure PP collects plenty of fees as is.


Good luck and good shooting.

df06, exactly! to make a difference hit them in the wallet. I told a friend who owns Spingco USA + has a LOT of business through the fed, Brownell's etc. that BOA had started an anti policy so he said from here on out we will not deal with Bank Of America money. That is what it takes. I hope they have changed their tune.

I have a seperate account I use for the reason you mentioned.
I keep a minimum amount to keep it open and transfer funds when needed.
