Default Paypal bans accounts who sell social media services?

I heard from some people from other forums that their PP got banned, because they were selling Social media services. Is it true?
Why should paypal ban them?

PayPal doesn’t like digital goods which they could class it as. They won’t always ban you for it though.

Digital Goods = High risk.

You also can expect to lose any disputes that involve digital goods 100% of the time. PayPal is setup for physical goods where a tracking # is posted. Without that, their system handles the transactions completely differenently, and you can expect problems.

I think for PayPal is it all comes down to Terms and Proof of Delivery.

You need two things:
1) Clear terms and conditions visible at the time of sale.
2) Some kind of proof (evidence) that you delivered the item.

Your biggest obstacle is going to be to deal with option 2.
