Paypal and tobacco products.

If you are involved in a trade or sale of cigars where Paypal is involved, do not mention the words, tobacco, cigarettes or cigar or your account will be summarily cancelled!

This blows serious ass

I always used PayPal when dealing with my favorite vendor...and now their account got deleted because PayPal found out they dealt in cigars

Ebay suspended my account for listing "The Cyclopedia of Cigars". After one e-mail, they re-activated my account

All due respect to your dealer, but shouldn't he move up to the adult's table and get a real credit account? PayPal is a good option for cottage industry, but not for a serious vendor.

WTF! I can't believe what I'm reading here
You should sue PayPal.
Finaly when I found a way to buy my cigars at decent price, they wobble with my credit card

As for moi...I like PayPal because it can be a bit more discreet...and whenever I try to buy cigars from across the pond, my credit card company usually tends to throw a hissy fit

However, in the Brother to Brother transactions, its quite handy. Check/MO are a pain in the ass. By the way, I'm convinced PoopyPal uses security firms to do bot searches on their name to locate potential violations of their acceptable use policy. I strongly recommend you not mention them by name or even close subs any more than you'd tag a source.

Dan, you need a new credit card. I've never had any squawking from my CC company regarding overseas purchases...in fact that's the only kind I've made with one of my cards.

PudPal gets no business of any kind from me as long as they take this anti-tobacco stand.
