Paying for SLR/CzechVR/etc with PayPal

Currently thinking about subscribing to a website for the first time but I wanted to confirm something. Although most sites claim they accept PayPal, PayPal itself says it does not allow users to buy…
Sexually oriented digital goods or content delivered through a digital medium. Examples of digital goods include downloadable pictures or videos and website subscriptions. What is PayPal’s policy on transactions that involve sexually oriented goods and services?

I know that these hosting services are subtle in regards to what shows up in billing, but I just wanted to make sure no one had any issues with using PayPal to purchase a subscription from one of these websites.

Hey,

this shouldn’t be an issue. All payments go though a payment processor. In the case of SLR and CzechVR it’s Epoch. Is assmue that there is no way for PayPal to tell that the payment is going to an adult website.

Maybe @doublevr can elaborate on this :smile:

I was buying porn subscriptions through PayPal for some time now and they never blocked my account or anything like that. As already mentioned in 99% cases you will have Epoch on your billing statement on PayPal.

Paypal doesn’t process payments directly, but through their authorized agents like Epoch and SegPay. You won’t have any problems with PP if the sub is payed and managed via these agents.

You should not address it directly with PP though, but the agent processing it

Hello All,

Thank you all for the feedback, seems like it is safe to move forward with this. Best regards.
