    I run a vape shop directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that also markets CBD products. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store directory. We do not retail CBD product lines such as CBD oil. We only provide promotion and marketing services to CBD companies. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Health and wellness Store and if you take a good look, you will see that they promote a fairly wide-ranging range of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It emerges that PayPal is employing contradictory standards to different companies. Due to this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restrained my payment choices and presently, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is altogether against the law and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent criterion to all companies. I am still to check with one more lawyer 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 different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
