Angry So WTF, PayPal supports pornography, but bans us all?

Just had to say it.

Yes, I think porn is bad, just as bad as drugs. I've used both. I'm not innocent.

They allow the sale of prostitution, but you guys can't sell your steam and xbox codes.

This is the state of the world I suppose. Grim reality

I would presume its down to risk factor, and issues they have had in the past with the sale of codes as oppose to anything else for that matter.

If they notice certain products cause a lot of cases and charge backs to be filed, they take the risk averse route by steering clear of those items/categories. It's just how they operate. I don't think they favour pornography over xbox codes.

Paypal does not process transactions for porn or prostitution. Either would require a high risk merch account.

Closest thing they do is allow porn networks to pay performers with Paypal. I don't necessarily support porn, but those girls/boys have to eat...

For PayPal it doesn't matter if it's porn, tobacco, vape supplies, or anything else. It's all about risk of the transaction/goods.
