Well I just received an email from PayPal stating that I am in violation of their policy. So I have disabled the PayPal Buttons on our website and those that were sent in the email earlier. And I requested a bank transfer sooner than I wanted to. I will let everyone know if PayPal has honored the transfer by 7/12/13

I have it now set up through our credit card processor. Please follow the link below:

Lisa I sent you a PM this early afternoon; I entered my credit card twice, and it wouldn't let me send payment. I sent it via Paypal and it went through.

PayPal claims they are going to honor those that went through yesterday
But I won't be absolutely sure on 7/12/13 I requested a transfer from my PayPal account.

Lisa, my Chase account has been debited for the $20 - if you don't receive it, PLEASE let me know, I will use the Credit Card option on your site and re-send it. I can always use a reason to argue with PayPal for anything really. That would be such crap if they don't allow you to receive it. It's going to a good cause, what does Paypal say exactly is the violation if I may ask?

I definitely will do jckilla

Below is the email they sent me and what gets me is I know other people who use PayPal for raffles all the time.

But " YoSamittySam " is making an absolute KILLING on GB thru PayPal selling your stuff. Over $15,000 so far. Looks like he has an endless supply of the best ammo EVER manufactured for the 5.7 ( my opinion! ) What a total Dou&%e - I would love to say something to PayPal regarding it, however other people have voiced that I shouldn't. Karma will catch up. I don't even think I've ever seen him in the forum - sorry to have gone off topic, but i just saw his listings again.

Does being Canadian exclude me from the raffle?

Unfortunately the raffle for the accurizing is a yes.
Canadian Customs frown on anything gun related. That we know from experience :(
