Sportsmans Guide has thousands of products. It could be as simple as an items was incorrectly tagged as being a Paypal restricted item. Plus, based on an experience I had with Ebay (which owns Paypal) I could see that they could be a little aggressive in making such determinations. I once tried selling an AR15 gas block on Paypal. They took my post down and disabled my account for a day or two because they have a ban on "assault weapon parts". I did list it as an AR15 part. I read all of their policies which basically ban parts associated with what would be considered an "assault weapon" in California. I also saw that there were dozens of gas blocks listed by others sellers, but they did not mention AR15. Since the part can be used to build rifles that do not meet their definition of an "assault weapon" I relisted the part using similar language as I saw other sellers using. They took my listing down and banned me for about 10 days. I called a representative and explained how their policies allow parts for non "assault weapons" except the listing cannot mention if they can also be used on an assault weapon (see below) - which my new listing did not. The representative could not provide a logical reason on why my listing was banned, but stood firm that it was. Oh well, their business their (made up) rules.PayPal is what my website is setup for and I talked to them about building gun holsters and they have always said I'm considered as a leather goods supplier.
I'm really confused about being turned down for trying to buy a holster.
Never had problems with PayPal or PayPal processing credit cards.
"Listings that mention capability with an assault weapon, even if the part or accessory fits non-assault weapons, are also prohibited. "
