Paypal keeps banning me for selling pretty much anything to do with a gun. I have tried reasoning with them and they dont hear it. Any firearm part or even a knife can be grounds for banning. Anyway, does anyone know of a similiar payment type that is gun friendly?

They have been doing it for a few years now. They wont change their ways for anything.

Only other similar one I know of is Bidpay, are they gun friendly?

I got locked today too. First time. I filled out their questionaire and submitted it.
Have some money to withdraw but it won't let me. In the past, how long has it
taken you to be able to withdraw funds when this has happened??

They're part of eBay, and eBay is anti-gun.

Just don't list it as gun related shit...
List it as Sporting Goods...

I have funds locked up with them too. I even got banned for selling stuff on here. Riddle me this, who was the genius that put paypal as a payment type on the new EE ?

I just shipped that airsoft gun I was selling on Ebay. PayPal better not freeze my account. That shipment was $78.

You mentioned in your origional post that you had been banned several times. Did you money
get locked up the? If so, how long before it was released??

BidPay is gun-friendly, I've used them several times. Not as quick as PayPal nor as user-friendly, but a good alternative to PayPal.

I refuse to use Paypal

I use Paypal, but always stress use no gun words of anykind if selling something on the EE. First I have heard of any problems with knives though, other than switchblades or auto knives.

I always send the customer an invoice and click the box than just says "goods".
Then the customer has no opportunity to say anything about the product.
I'm thinking someone ratted me out....

Never had a problem, but I always inform people buying from me not to indicate anything gun related.

Paypal did that to me. Locked my money for several months. Luckily I only had a couple of bucks left in the account.
When I tried to clear it up, they asked for my ARF user name to search all my posts. I said no. They then refused to close my account, but wouldn't let me use it either.
I filed a complaint with the BBB out of CA and their final answer was maybe it is just best to close/end our account.
I advised that was all I wanted all along but they accused me of trying to avoid an investigation. I replied that they wanted me to prove a sale from 3 months earlier violated their terms. I told the BBB that I am not a company and don't keep records like that. They took my fees and had no complaints at the time so what was the problem??
Anyways, Paypal Sucks! and for those who say use "discreet" terms, I always did.....
Be careful....

What I do is when someone buys something from me on the EE, I ask for their paypal email and I send them a billing statement with a description like "dark earth fluffy kittens"

Paypal would never ban the sale of fluffy kittens!

ive used PP for a few transactions. i dont see how people fuck things up and mention gun related stuff. when it shows the box and what you are buying, i click "goods" and thats that. i dont see how people mention gun things.
i also dont get fees taken out or added. not sure whats up with that.

PayPal is a ring of internet thieves. I refuse to do business with them.

Generally, they'll mail you a check in a few days.

I think they don't know that I bought a lot of ammo, parts, and a deer rifle with them
