    I have a question for all of you selling on shopify (or any ecommerance for that matter), does not having paypal as an option really impact your sales?

    I currently have a paypal business account which is about 8 or 9 years old and despite being permanently banned from paypal for basically no reason, this account has stood the test of time (almost 8-9 years I've been using this account). I use all my real information when creating this account, address, phone number, EVERYTHING! and I don't know if I just got lucky but I've never ran into any problems thus far.

    The thing is I haven't really sold anything with this account, maybe a few house hold items but that's about it. My online store should be doing no less than 5-6 figures and I don't really want to take a risk with this account since it's the only one I have plus I don't want my customers money being tied up.

    So I know some of you have been banned from paypal (these guy's are a bit trigger happy), what do you guy's do? Do you deal directly with shopify's credit card payment processor or do you use somthing like 2checkout with your shopify store?

    Just keep using PayPal. Just make sure you give customers tracking numbers.

    And once or twice a day, transfer money out of your PayPal

    Use shopify's credit card payment gateway

    Paypal is definitely more convenient but they have been very sensitive lately
