    PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy


    Recently I sold some Clomid (not a lot; I think it was two bottles and maybe 10 grams of powder in total) and accepted PayPal as payment.

    When I tried transfer the money to my bank account though, it said that I was in violation of their acceptable use policy because I was selling prescription drugs in a manner which does not comply with FDA regulations.

    I stated directly to each buyer that these products were for research purposes only and are not for human consumption, so how can they be deemed prescription drugs? Also, how does PayPal even have any idea how its members receive their money?

    Here's what the E-mail I got says:
    You will need to provide detailed information describing the nature of
    your business (website) for which you are accepting PayPal, as well as any
    available invoices or receipts proving the nature of your transactions.
    Please note that PayPal's User Agreement states an account may be limited
    for "refusal to cooperate in an investigation" (see "Closing Accounts and
    Limiting Account Access").

    This is not intended to be an all-inclusive review or list of your Internet
    sites in violation. Furthermore, the violations of the Policy described
    above are not intended to be an all-inclusive list. It is the
    responsibility of the user to ensure that all transactions comply with the
    Acceptable Use Policy
    Does anyone have any experience with this? What should I say was the nature of my business? Just be honest and tell them I was providing research chemicals?

    I would greatly appreciate any help or advice you can offer, thanks.

    Paypal was bought by Ebay and if you sold this on Ebay then
    yeah this is one of the ways they deal with it... I hope you
    didn't sell on Ebay, because if your Paypal verified, meaning
    bank account info and all they have all your info if they want
    to turn it over to LE even though for that I doubt they will...

    To start with why did you register as a business. You should of registered a personal account -and used it that way as you can accept payments, donations etc.

    You've started a business account so lie, jesus dont actually put that its for steroids , education use, sample or whatever.

    use your head, if ebay arent going to allow you to sell them on their site, do you really believe they will give you the means to set up and accept payments from your own site?

    When you make payment please ONLY reference your NAME, CITY, STATE and ORDER NUMBER. Any Paypal transactions that indicate anything about the products themselves will be refused and your payment refunded, minus a 5% processing fee.

    Hope this helps,

    I didn't sell anything on eBay and I didn't register as a business. The reason they found out, I just discovered, is because someone put the word Clomid in the subject field of his payment.

    Anyway I just found out that the money I requested did actually go through. So I'm closing my now empty account and they can blow me with their investigation.
