Paypal and vaporizer

Hello,

I'm currently buying a vaporizer through FC, but when I've sent the payment I wrote on the description that the purchasing is related to a vaporizer.

Sound pretty dumb, but I wasn't aware of Paypal policy with vaporizer :/

What do you think is better:
1) ask for a refund and loose the 20$ Paypal fees
2) or keep going with the actual payment (with vaporizer word on the description) ?

Apparently they can block the account and keep the fees...

Any feedback or advices ?

Edit: it's an international transaction
Thank you very much .

I don't understand, why can't you buy it without calling it a vaporizer?? Why is the only choice to cancel the order...? It doesn't matter what you put in the description of PayPal normally so why would you or they have to put vaporizer, say aromatherapy

From what I gather from the op, I think they could have put something other than 'vaporizer' but didn't realise this would cause them any issue at the time - so they sent the payment & now they are worried as they probably can't edit the description since it's been sent.

Personally, I would take my chances & continue with the transaction - vaporizer suppliers use PayPal here in the UK so I have bought many vapes this way. Idk for sure in your situation though, & of course it's your call, but that has been my experience.

Best of luck!
:peace:

If that was the case, it could be canceled, or refunded, and then resent? But I also think it's not really such a problem with a person to person personal transaction anyway

From a quick google search Apparently PayPal can suspend your account (most likely the seller's) for 180 days if you use the word "vaporizer" in a transaction. I am unsure if this is a fact or not, or is completely random about per PayPal's terms. But OP accidentally put "vaporizer" in the description instead of saying something else. I think UK doesn't have same mail vape ban issues going on as the US currently? I can't speak on that for sure though. I'm actually the seller, and I'm the one concerned because I can't afford to have my Paypal account suspended. On the other hand if I were to issue a refund now to try again using different language in description , it could take weeks to 30 days to post back to the buyers account. This is an international transaction as well, if that might factor in in any way to Paypal caring.

Descriptions totally matter,. I make knives, sheaths and holsters and I 've had PayPal block transactions with the words knife sharpening and Damascus in the the description not to mention holster.

Sorry I meant, why would it matter to the buyer or seller, put aromatherapy instead of vaporizer if you have to put something. But I didn't realize it was already done

It's likely that PayPal will only take action if one of you complain about the transaction and demand a refund. Just keep going at this point. If you are concerned you should pull any balance out asap.
