Can I use Paypal to purchase kratom without jeopardizing my account?

Can I use Paypal to purchase kratom without jeopardizing my account? A friend had her account terminated without notice for purchasing kratom. I depend on this leaf for pain relief for my spinal injury.

Your friend already got the answer.  It's up to you if you want the same consequences.

When you select PayPal as a payment processor you explicitly agree to PayPal policies.  If you don't like the service and policies are free to select a different service.

I'd also like an answer to this question as I believe it is wrong for a company like paypal to have any say in our day to day finances especially when we are buying a LEGAL product. thanks in advance.

Agree entirely. A legal item shouldn't cause you to lose your ability to make secure payments. I love PayPal service but blocking pain patients from getting a legal non-controlled supplements seems cold to say the least, PayPal. Where's the humanity? I realize there are some states that have banned it, shipping to those states should be prohibited but I'm sure a big company can make that happen. After all, thousands of kratom websites do and many of them are run by 1 person.

Thank you for your response. Your policies convey a disregard for people's need to make the best possible choices to manage their health. You can be confident I and many of my friends WILL GLADLY select a different service.

It's not my policies; it's PayPal's policies--the policies you accepted when you started using PayPal.

I'm just another user here.

Paypal is a payment processor,not doctor or pharmacy dispensing medicine,there are other options of making payments-cash,credit card direct,western union,moneygram,postal order,money order,cashier check and even personal check.

how do we pay for medicine and doctor visit before PAYPAL,before credit card or even insurance?

PayPal have to follow the law too and to make it simple for them legally/jurisdiction-wise, they would simply ban or restrict a certain product/service.  And it would be so problematic and costly if you threw disputes, chargebacks, and risk of fraud into the mix.  It's a smart business move for PayPal to avoid it.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂

True... at least until people stop using paypal entirely to protest their unwillingness to help their customers acquire needed medicines! At some point, it will cost Paypal more to ignore this issue than to make the necessary effort to support laws on a state-by-state basis.
