  8. I oversee a vape store directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the USA that additionally offers for sale CBD goods. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store web directory. We do not retail CBD product lines like CBD oil. We merely provide internet marketing services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Health Store and if you take a close look, you will see that they offer a reasonably considerable range of CBD goods, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to many different companies. Because of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has restricted my payment choices and presently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is completely illegal and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a consistent criterion to all companies. I am yet to talk with another attorney from a US law practice in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. In the meantime, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
