Paypal was not an option for the players from South Korea and many other countries 🙂

It is surprising that they opened it for german players until recently 😀

Aw man, that sucks. PayPal is a great service, and I wish we could use it here. What method will you use now?

Weirdly enough I've once have been paid through PayPal by Winaday although I used another payment method for deposit..Skrill if I remember right cause it was a few years back.

PP is not meant to service gambling operations generally at first place but I can't believe in 21 century in the internet (which suppose to be the highest tech net used literally by anyone on this planet ) the biggest problem for the punters(and not only) usually is that there's not a unified payment system..where you could handle all your transactions no matter if that's gambling, buying, selling, sending money to people...or whatever you need financially...that's just ridiculous!

Bitcoin didn't seems to be the solution either because of the fluctuation but my advice is to start using it vomvom if you didn't done that already, now the rate is at the at lowest point for years so at least you can't loose much because of that and there's always a chance of getting it up, and it's accepted in more and more casinos these days.

I used to earn some money through a Paid to Click sites using PP but they completely cut off that in the last years but for example you could buy drugs or weapons there so not exactly the perfect politic from them either.

You mean you're not allowed to open a PP account or you just can't use it for gambling?

I know PP is restricted in some areas like India and China if I'm not mistaken and that's probably because of the local laws.

But that should be because the casinos available for you don't offer PayPal as a payment option in your region not because PP decided that way.

Actually it is PayPal policy and it varies from country to country. I know they will shut down accounts of people in the USA if they suspect they are using it to fund gambling or receive winnings.

I have boycotted PayPal for a few years now, they took money out of my bank account without permission, and they admitted to doing so as well, by sending me an email explaining such. Just so my bank would reverse all the NSF fees I accumulated from PayPals attempts at withdrawing money.
My bank said they wont pay for something that paypal admitted to doing, paypal wasnt paying me anything either, so I was stuck with a few hundred bucks in NSF charges.
Let's just say I would love to step into a boxing ring with paypal, if of course paypal was just one guy lol

hi barbadosslim93
i always liked paypal and used it as payment option if it was available...
it's so easy to use and most of the time no fees even for cashing out to my bank account.

but it is no big deal for me that i can not use it anymore because there were not so many casinos offering paypal as a payment option...but still a pity.
most of the times i use ecopayz or online banking like klarna or sofort banking

I'm not trying to be a PayPal lawyer here (just the other way round) but probably it's because of the of local legislation and being situated in US they've probably watch even more closely the American citizens accounts of not using it for gambling, I've had received a few casino payments over the years without any issues.

That being said there's a countries and regions completely restricted of opening a PayPal accounts.

So that was my point at first place there's not good enough alternative to PayPal globally(not one that I'm aware of anyway) and they creating the rules themselves as a monopolist...so that's the real problem I think.

Otherwise the people who still could use PayPal for whatever they need say it's fine and the rest claim it's the Satan, well the truth is (at least for me) there's not good enough and easy to use alternative globally (as I said already) which force many of these people still using it for one reason or another reason despite most of them don't in fact like it.

Yes and this is why I hope Bitcoin will become easy enough for your grandma to use in the future. It is not there yet though. It is not under control of any government or company and allows people to spend their money on what they want without these kinds of restriction.

Yeah agree the Bitcoin is not there yet Ed, would it be nice though.

I would of just happy to see out there a E-wallet or something available all over the world allowing any kind of currencies (including cryptos) being used for all kind of transactions (nothing illegal of course) even if they charge a small fee for the currency conversions and that doesn't seem so impossible to me but..
