    Paypal Changes its Policies on E-cigarettes (and Snus)

    Amendment to the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy

    Effective Date: Jul 1, 2015

    We encourage you to carefully review this Policy Update to familiarise yourself with all of the changes that are being made to the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy.

    Tobacco Products, E-cigarettes and Prescription Drugs and Devices
    The Acceptable Use Policy currently prohibits use of PayPal for activities that violate applicable law or industry regulations regarding the sale of tobacco products or prescription drugs and devices. We're replacing that prohibition with new policy language covering these types of items, as well as e-cigarettes. Under the new language, use of PayPal for cigarette transactions will be prohibited. In addition, merchants will be permitted to use PayPal for sales of non-cigarette tobacco products, e-cigarettes, and prescription drugs and devices only with PayPal’s pre-approval.

    The changes will be as follows:

    Section 5 under Prohibited Activities, which contains the current provisions related to tobacco products and prescription drugs and devices, will be removed.
    A new Section 2(c) under Prohibited Activities will read as follows:
    “You may not use the PayPal service for activities that: … 2. relate to transactions involving … (c) cigarettes …”
    The relevant parts of the chart under Activities Requiring Approval will be revised to read as follows:
    “PayPal requires pre-approval to accept payments for certain services as detailed in the chart below.

    spoke too soon, it may only apply to non-US countries.

    Still, its a start.

    getting on the Vape gravy train at the last carriage would be my guess.

    "'holy crap, we're losing a metric shit ton by not allowing vaping sales"

    or

    the paypal CEO has taken up vaping, and wants to buy himself a cigalike....

    I'll believe it when I can use PooPal on Avid &/or Kidney Puncher.

    (note both have a good stock list of accessories & parts for RDA & RTA's)

    Please read the Forum rules

    Yeah, what's "only with PayPal’s pre-approval" mean? Sounds like a sword of Damocles to me.
