    Paypal doesn't allow tobacco,firearms and many other items on regular online sites. But it seems that they allow it in places that do sell those items such as Dollar General and Academy Sports Store. I was able to buy some electronic ciggarettes a few minutes ago at Dollar General using paypal. I haven't tried with real cigs or not to see if it goes through since I'm a vaper and not a smoker. I also haven't yet bought a firearm at Academy with papyal, but may due when I get one soon for some fun at a range.

    Is it because the stores check ID's in order to buy tobacco products and firearms and that they are so large paypal gives them a free pass?

    not sure but they make all of this stuff up imo. I've been selling e cigs for months with paypal and has no issues. Think they just like to distance themselves from things like that and that if its ever a issue its. 'Oh were a huge company we try our best to keep track of this, its in our t&cs not to sell them'
