    I just found out about an hour ago, that paypal can now be used on some websites that use the Epoch Billing System.

    https://epoch.com/paypal/

    Screenshot from an adult website(censored out) showing that paypal is now an option:

    I'm surpised it has taken paypal so long to decide to be okay with adult sites when they have had a very large industry for years.

    Nothing wrong with porn industry it brings in alot of money for many people, and one of the easiest industries to get into since many people are afraid to deal with it.

    Downside is you have to partner with Epoch and pay their fees for visa and mastercard processing on top of their fines. That brings your entry level to billing to around 1500 bucks.

    But being able to get more clients since many persons don't use debt or credit cards can benefit many sites.

    There are loads of free shows on mfc, one doesn't need to go premium on it unless they want to actually chat in most rooms.

    I did some research on paypal, and it seems that they are trying to stop other digital wallet companies from overtaking them as well as get more of the market share used by credit and debit cards.

    http://www.statista.com/chart/2534/mobile-payment-usage-in-the-us/

    33% of U.S. consumers prefer paypal instead of other payment methods when shopping online.

    http://lab42.com/infographics/keeping-tabs-on-digital-privacy

    I wouldn't be surpised that in 2016 or 2017 paypal decides to work directly with adult sites instead of using Epoch and other payment processors as a middle man. Just last year paypal was banning webcam models after finding out they were taking payments for cam shows with paypal.

    Update: I just bought a premium account on MFC using paypal and it went through, so it wasn't like some kind of display error.

    Watch this space. Its a market thats huge beyond words (and growing), and there are plenty of entrants coming out of the woodwork. Its ripe for a shakeup - and the net beneficiary will be the users :)
    God I love capitalism.

    Hopefully the next thing is a stoppage on how easy it is for an account to be frozen, then totally ending of all prohibited transactions besides illegal activity.

    X-Art is now openingly advertising that you can use paypal to order their subscription service. They've probably been doing it for a few weeks now, I just never came across their website recently until today.

    hi, **this is just my thought/option**

    I do not believe PayPal has changed there policy's and are now allowing adult content.

    Epoch has basicly found a loop hole in Paypal policy, when I read there policy it was bland just listed services that was against Paypal terms of service *Adult Content*

    So if you were to use PayPal to sell credits from your adult based website then that would be violation of paypal terms, HOWEVER....
    Epoch is a completely different website / media. Epoch is a payment processing service/site.
    So when adult sites that use Epoch the visitor is taken from the adult website to epoch website, then they would be redirected to paypal for payment. Epoch site didn't sell the customer adult content, what they sold that customer was digital download content (just a thank you email)

    So basicly if you setup another website on a different domain - that sold electronic Gift Cards (voucher numbers) after purchase the customer would get an email of there purchase along with a voucher number and link the customer clicks on the link it then passes that voucher number through the URL to a webpage on the adult site which then auto adds credits to the customers account


    * i have made this on my modenacam adult cam site.
