    Hey guys,

    I was selling angry bird hats on my site. Basically, dropshipping from a chinese company. One fine day, I receive an email ( this was few months back ) from Paypal saying that its a violation and I stopped selling it since then. They removed the temporary block with a warning since I was not aware that it was a violation to sell angry bird products.

    Now, I can see other people selling them. I realized that maybe many of them are selling licensed angry bird products. I was wondering if I will land in any kind of trouble if I dropship licensed angry bird products because I am wondering if paypal emails me again, what do I tell them. I don't want to lose my paypal account at any cost. Apart from mentioning on the item description that this is a licnesed products of commonwealth toys what other proof can I provide to paypal since this is a dropshipping thing for me. Also, whats the difference between lincensed vs non licensed. I mean, how to spot the difference in case I choose to order one before choosing a supplier to see if he is really selling licensed product or not.


    Anyone?

    Contact PayPal and ask them if it is ok. Just to be on the safe side. If they say it is ok then go ahead. Also, PayPal wont just ban you somtimes you can appeal and get the hold lifted. PayPal can be fags at times so proceed with caution.

    If you're serious about ecommerce you'll bin PayPal and get a proper merchant account.

    Where are you from broski?

    2checkout and PayPal are raping you. Take card payments on yoursite using SSL and a proper business merchant account with a bank.

    Then again, you should factor in how seriously you take business, and if it's worth the hassle.
