    If you think the PP thing is problem, better keep an eye out for what's happening with MasterCard right now. It seems that they will be voting on the issue of having a "human rights" panel decide who and who should not be allowed to use their services. As I understand it, the board over at MasterCard is letting shareholders know this would be a bad idea, but I can tell you this, if they pass that shit, dump them immediately.
    Post here about it if you learn of MasterCard doing Gun Free Master Race decisions.

    Zelle keeps looking like one of the better options. For now.

    It's supposed to be part of "social media," and I suppose that's why they emphasize sharing your phone and email contacts with the app.

    I guess the biggest worry about Zelle is that there is no recourse if you pay for goods and the seller cheats you. You can't appeal to Zelle for reimbursement. One bank to another, done deal.

    On the other hand, you can't get reimbursed with PP "gifts" either, and that's become the common method for our gun related stuff.

    I didn't either, until I started getting nervous about the payment I was supposed to receive that just hung there all night. That's when I started reading the terms of service.

    Wasn't very much money, but you know how it is.

    I heard about a PayPal alternative based in South Korea that a few of the *ahem* "more controversial" internet e-celebs I watch are starting to use but I can't remember the name at the moment.

    Any time you hear the term "human rights" like this it's just a code word for "unlimited persecution of anyone who dares oppose the commie libshit agenda". It's a weasel term for weasel people.

    This is their new thing now. If you have a political opinion that the SPLC takes note of, they not only try to silence your ability to speak your mind on the internet - they want you jobless with no bank account, isolated from your friends and family, strung out on opioids, and watching porn in your mother's basement contemplating what the cold, blue steel of a 12 gauge tastes like.

    These "people" are demonic.

    Crypto currency is another avenue but there is no recourse for refunds if the other party is a miscreant. I would have no problem trading cryptos to seasoned form members.
    Getting your wallet and crypto markets set up is no walk in the park tho.

    Brendyn I hope you will be able to keep your paypal account but if you don’t I doubt any of us will stop using your services. One way or the other you will get my money. ��

    Setting up for credit cards is probably the best thing to do for a small business man.
    Iv considered doing it for mine but most people have pp accounts and it’s gone well but I think I’d look more professional if I took card payments.
    If paypal discriminated on my services I’d for sure not use it .... cant do business at the mercy of haters.

    As you may know by now they banned Mike the other day.

    PP froze my account because a buyer transferred funds via F&F and used a gun word. I was unable to move any money for months! I vowed never to use PP again.

    I've gone back to good ol' USPS money orders. I'll have to look into Zelle.

    I once looked into setting up Bitcoin and I finally had to throw my hands up and surrender. Couldn't figure it out and I'm kind of skeptical about it anyway. That's probably just my ignorance.

    I think there would be very few guys on the gun boards who could trade it with me anyway.

    I will, but lets hope that post is never made. The people behind this latest travesty are pushing for things to happen they will regret should it ever come to pass. Get woke, go broke.

    I have not had any issues with PP yet...
    I'd switch if a decent alternative was available.

    I used to use my wife's girly named business's PP to deceptively fly under their antigun radar. You would be (or not) surprised how many people lack reading comprehension. Numbnuts seemed dead set to get the account locked so I started another PP.

    With both accounts I used to add " please, no gun words" when contacting the buyer via PM or email. Now due to morons who fail at reading I also add "gun words will void this sale and no money will be excepted". Not a problem yet, but I know "that guy" is out there, lol.
