Weird but there we are

Over the weekend PayPal informed us that they would no longer be willing to process payments for us due to “inappropriate content”. What this actually means is “we dont believe in your political opinion” both yours, and my own.

With this is mind we will no longer be able to accept PayPal for donations or for the purchase of literature.

We’d fight it, but we’re small fry and its easier to move on, plenty of more payment processors in the world.

No, I don’t know why, not really, either.

  1. From the horror stories I hear from friends who have fallen foul of PayPal’s whim based regulations, you’re better off without them.

  2. “We’d fight it, but we’re small fry and its easier to move on, plenty of more payment processors in the world.”

    Until they all say the same thing…….anyway who is the ‘we’ in all this?

  3. Of course ignore my comment because it seems you have solved it and even with a stripe powered solution. Now for some coffee before I try to think too hard

  4. MC, I think there may well be a certain pretend Professor who is not averse to shopping people to their employers. It would not surprise me if said Professor has also shopped those with whom he disagrees to their ISP or payment provider, odious little git that he is.

  5. My suspicion is it’s the transgender thingy. More people with time and a thirst for for persecution in that demographic than in any other.

  6. It’s a weird world that has gone from where customers would boycott banks they didn’t like to banks now boycotting customers they don’t like.

  7. Thanx for the nudge. I’ll be closing my PayPal account. If they don’t like my opinions, I don’t like theirs. Never much liked them as a money transfer service anyway. Customer service is non-existent. Like you say, plenty of other service providers. And I’ll be passing the word amongst my contact list. Most of who have similar opinions to mine. Suggest everyone here does the same.
    I presume the closure of account procedure will have the question, why?. I intend telling the why in detail.

  8. I used to use Paypal when buying vaping products. Paypal doesn’t want the business anymore. I don’t want Paypal anymore.
