80. Paypal has since moved the details, apparently...
Edited on Sun Feb-21-10 10:44 AM by benEzra
That was the link to the full policy from a couple of years ago.

Paypal has since moved the details, apparently, perhaps to try to avoid the (justly deserved) criticism over the "assault weapon" crap. I can't find the full policy on Paypal's site anymore, just quotes or captures from before it was moved. Paypal does still have this on an open page:

https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&cmd=_render-content...

You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:

...

2. relate to sales of
(a) narcotics, steroids, certain controlled substances or other products that present a risk to consumer safety,
(b) drug paraphernalia,
(c) items that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity,
(d) items that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime,
(e) items that are considered obscene,
(f) items that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity or privacy or any other proprietary right under the laws of any jurisdiction,
(g) certain sexually oriented materials or services, or
(h) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories, or
(i) certain weapons or knives regulated under applicable law

Those "certain firearm parts and accessories" are, of course, as specified above.
