  5. I operate a vape store submission site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that also sells CBD items. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop submission site. We do not sell CBD product lines such as CBD oil. We simply provide marketing and advertising solutions to CBD firms. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health Retailer and if you take a good look, you will see that they offer a somewhat extensive range of CBD products, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It seems that PayPal is employing twos sets of rules to many different companies. Due to this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has limited my payment possibilities and currently, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is completely illegal and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform benchmark to all firms. I am still to consult with another legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be extremely appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
