Is there any service that's similar to paypal but not anti-gun? I feel bad using it, but its just sooooo convenient.

I don't know the politics of CitiBank, but they have a service called C2It. Somewhat the same as PayPal. They charge 2% as a transaction fee a bit cheaper than PayPal CC rates. Only bad thing is your limited to $500 per transaction. Oh yeah - standard disclaimer blurb - I don't work for citibank or have any interest blah, blah, blah.

when you use paypal, there's a select box on reason why you're paying. Select Goods-Services, that way you dont have to enter auction number. works for me. i don't think they even check.
some people just like to construe paypal's CYA policy as an antigun stance. i'm not going to stop using paypal, they're extremely convenient. :)

Yah,

It's just CYA, they don't check and don't care.

Their lawyers probably just showed up at a meeting with the PayPal brass and scared them silly with tales of 20/20 and Dateline NBC someday running a shock expose on "Teens buying guns with PayPal on the internet no questions asked" and shooting up their school..." yadda yadda yadda.

Spineless of them and eBay for sure :rolleyes: but no real impact on the gun purchaser.

I also got the PayPal debit card backed by Mastercard, and I have my account in the moneymarket fund too, makes it much harder for them to freeze your money for the hell of it like some peoples horror stories from earlier.
