OK I was just wondering if folks here have seen the PAYPAL policy they have on using there service to buy guns and gun related items, as according to PAY+PAL< its prohibited to use to buy many things and can fine its users o $2500 per transaction
I was told they consider things like scopes, mounts, magazines, reloading supplies and such as prohibited items
NOT sure if there enforcing things or not, but thought I would post some info for anyone that cares to look ?
and or maybe think about using PayPal for like purchases!
from what I have seen they started this in 2019, prior to that they were fine with things,! a

from the official PAYPAL site!
