One more thing to tick me off.....



I recently sold a couple of shoulder holsters on Ebay and have a nice little sum in my Paypal balance because of that. So I'm searching the internet every day looking for brass, bullets, primers, etc just like everyone else. So I find a place that has some ammo I want to buy and check to see if they take Paypal. Guess what? Paypal will not let their service be used for ammo sales! Does anyone know of another service like Paypal that I could use? I don't like giving my business to any company that actively discriminates against law abiding gun owners! I'll bet not many people know about this. I plan to tell everyone I know.

You can send money to anyone through PayPal and it's free for both you and the seller. https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/send-money-online
I do it all the time on Gun Broker and there's never a mention of firearm related items.

You may be able to buy guns but according to info at www.luckygunner.com you cannot buy ammo through their website using Paypal.

looking at their site it appears your anger is miss directed . it appears that it is luckygunners choice not to accept payment from paypal not that paypal wont process because its ammo.

It's a long-standing and oft argued PayPal policy...

If you frequent GunBroker or other firearm specific site, you will find a many sellers will not accept PAYPAL. Their general consensus is paypal is anti-gun. I know it frustrates some of you, but that is their priviledge. USPS Money Orders are my prefered method.

Get the PayPal Debit card then use your PayPal funds anywhere Mastercard Debit cards are accepted.

Why leave the money in your paypal account?

As soon as I get money for selling something, I transfer it to my bank account. Doesn't cost anything to tranfer the money and then paypal has no control over my money or what I can spend it on...

I was hoping this would die off, as PayPal isn't a reloading topic.

Paypal's policies have been discussed numerous times, search the forum for information.
