Some unpleasant news from our capitalist friends over at PayPal. About a week ago we received an e-mail which read:
Subject: Your account access has been limited
We have recently reviewed your PayPal account, and due to the excessive risk involved, it has been permanently limited. Please remove all references to PayPal from your website/s and/or auction/s. This includes not only removing PayPal as a payment option, but also the PayPal logo and PayPal shopping cart.
Customers who are permanently limited for violating the Acceptable Use Policy are not permitted to use PayPal services and are not permitted to open new or additional PayPal accounts.
You can find the complete PayPal Acceptable Use Policy by clicking Legal at the bottom of any PayPal page.

After logging onto our PayPal-account we got yet another notification stating; ‘We need more information to resolve a problem with your account’. So after reviewing this notification we got prompted the following message:
You can’t use PayPal anymore
At PayPal, we value a safe community for our customers to do business. We noticed activity in your account that’s inconsistent with our User Agreement and we no longer offer you PayPal services.
Any bank or credit card information linked to your PayPal account cannot be removed nor can it be used to create a new account. You can still log in and see your account information but you can’t send or receive money. Any money in your balance will be held for 180 days, after which we’ll send you an email with instructions about transferring your money.
So according to this information our PayPal-account got blocked because we didn’t adhere to (((their))) guidelines. All recent payments to our account got blocked as well.
Our sincere apologies to any customer who has made a recent purchase in our webshop. Note that you’ll still receive your order, just with a slight delay.
Because of PayPal’s little joke the website had to be taken offline for maintenance. But as you all might have noticed, we’re back up! For the meantime payments can be made via Creditcard. We are also looking for other platform(s) and or services to offer the best check-out possibilities. We’ll keep you informed.
