    I just had PayPal request detailed information on a recent transaction because the buyer detailed that he was buying a glass rig in the notes. This apparently breaks the TOS of paypal and I may now lose my account.

    This as been a public service announcement.

    Is there anyway you can make up something that sounds believable?

    It just seems like common sense to me NOT to ever detail any information like that in a Paypal transaction. :shrug:

    I'd say he forgot to put the "n" in ring.

    That's shitty bruh.

    Get the other dude to retract and or deny his comments.

    Hope it works out.

    He didn't put "rig" in the description however Google shows exactly what it is if you bother searching for what he wrote. Regardless, I'll try to deny but this can be avoided in the future

    When I get dhgate glass from China it usually says 'glass art'. I thought that was pretty clever.

    Maybe you need to have him add tobaco or explain it as such!!!. I guess I have never read the fine print, even though we checked that box.

    I don't get it. ebay owns paypal, this is a paypal only auction, this says tobaco?? there are tons of these?? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hookah-Set-...948?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item25a35d6d24

    Mod, please delete the link if not ok. (i have not read the rules here either) ;)

    I've sent a lot of invoices through PayPal to buyers stating that I am selling "Glass Sculptures", I even have a business account through PayPal that does NOT sell glass sculptures regularly and haven't had any transactions questioned thus far . If they do inquire I'll tell them it was this kind of sculpture... used but cleaned thoroughly with ISO. That should make them mind their business :evil:

    So I hAbe a dispute with someone and paypal is asking me to provide the url of the item (glass tube).
    Would I be breaking the TO if I gave them the url that clearly has glass on it could I still say it's art ?

    The DH piece I bought was labeled as a "candle holder".
