  2. I manage a vape store directory site and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that also markets CBD goods. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape store web directory. We do not offer CBD product lines such as CBD oil. We merely provide internet marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Health Merchant and if you take a close look, you will see that they sell a pretty extensive stable of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to many different firms. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restrained my payment options and currently, I am intensely reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have consulted a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they said that what PayPal is doing is totally unlawful and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform criterion to all companies. I am still to check with a different lawyer from a US law practice in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
