    PayPal won't transfer funds if guns are involved.

    Sure, you just have to ask them...But it is called "discreet paypal.";)

    As long as you don't say in the comment section, "hey thanks for the guns/ammo" then you will be fine.

    I like to mess around and say stuff like "hey thanks for the sweet porno!" :p

    I accept PayPal on my site, but I don't sell guns or ammo. Just laser grips, Eotech sights, rangefinders, pistol safes, stuff like that.

    I know that PayPal is anti-gun, but there's a lot of potential customers out there who don't know that.

    I'm not looking to buy a gun with it. Just an accessory or maybe ammo.

    Get the funds transfered to your bank account, then use your debit card for the purchase.

    Well you can spend it on a gun too, accessories are just as bad as guns in paypal's eyes...You know you can transfer that money to your bank account, right?:)

    When I can't use my debit card, I use paypal on everything up until that 3% charge is substantial enough for me to mail a money order.

    Bidpay closed shop. They went out of business.

    They will suspend your account for porno as well as guns, ammo, or accessories.

    You can try discreet Pay-pal but they are getting smart to this also. Eventually some one will say thanks for the 1911 or Q3130 and your account and money will be froze for months before they allow you to with draw it.

    Never really understood why people claim Paypal/Ebay is anti-gun when they allow all sorts of gun related products except for actual firearms and some gun parts.

    I can accept people claiming they are anti-gun if they ban ALL gun related products. But they don't ban all gun related products, I've recently sold stocks, gunsmithing tools, gun related videos, etc.

    Their position on firearms sales is out of ignorance and fear, not anti-gun proclivities. Do I think their firearms sales policy is silly? Yes, gunbroker allows firearms sales auctions and they seem to be doing fine. But it's Ebay/Paypal's fear of lawsuits from rabid anti-gun groups that make them create these silly company policies. Blame Bloomberg and his lawsuits and threats of lawsuits.

    Ebay/Paypal prohibits sales of body parts, porn and humans. Why don't you anti-ebay/anti-paypal guys protest their anti-porn, anti-body part, anti-human stances?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not supporting their lame policies...I had an Ebay auction revoked because I was selling a Wilson Combat Tactical sling made for an AR-15. They revoked the auction on a sling! HAHAHAHA

    Yes, their policies are lame. But it is out of sheer ignorance, not anti-gun conspiracies. They are a publicly traded, profit-seeking company. Its their lawyers doing the cost-benefit analysis that make them come up with these lame rules.

    PayPal is not your friend. It's your money, but you get to spend it only the way they allow you. That's a brand new concept enabled by the electronic era and the femi-liberal proclivities of the controlling class.

    Soooo, we are all agreed that paypal sucks.... what alternatives are there? Can anyone recommend a service comparable to paypal that allows you to spend your money anyway you see fit? I'm seriously interested because I would like to buy/sell guns on the internet, and I know from personal experience that driving thirty miles to town to send a MO can be a pain.


    Any recommendations?

    Or you could just leave the flag up on your mailbox and have the postal carrier mail it out.

    I'm was in a similar situation, but now live in the village with mail delivery.

    Go to gunbroker and see what payment service options they have.

    I think Gearpay is pro gun, but I've never used them so I can't be sure.

    Bazooka, yes I know, but I will never again link a bank account to my Paypal after what they did a few years ago. I only have $ in there now b/c an ebay auction I did required me to accept it.

    Paypal has this new feature where it will generate a Mastercard debit account number that you can use to buy things from any merchant who takes VISA/Mastercard; works like a credit card but the funds come from your Paypal account. I've used it a couple of times to buy gun-related stuff from merchants who didn't use Paypal.

    LiquidTension - Thanks! GearPay is identical to Paypal, with the exception that they are pro-gun. What does this mean? All of my business/shopping will now be done with gearpay.

    Thanks again for the reference!
