Online payment services?

Is Paypal still good or have you found other payments services more to your liking?

I discussed this with our banking agent today and his suggestion was Zelle.
Your thoughts?

I dropped PayPal recently. I did not mind the 3% charge for the sale of the knife, but recently they also charged me 3% for transferring the funds to my local bank for a total of 6%. I cater to big game hunters with my knives and some of them refuse to use Paypal due to feeling that PayPal is anti gun.

Glad you mentioned that, I had a PP account years ago but have ceased using them due to the changes made over the years. Went back to read the TOS and Paypal has this in the prohibited area: (j) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories, or (k) certain weapons or knives regulated under applicable law.

For supporters of Knife Rights and the 2A, I would not choose Paypal either.

They will seize funds if they are aware of the transaction. My banker relayed to me how much a PITA Paypal can be if there is a problem.

I think a little nuance is needed here.

For those knifemakers making kitchen cutlery, this shouldn't be a problem. One of the reasons I don't make bowies....

They have that so generic that whomever may audit a transaction the definition of weapon could be pretty broad. Care should be taken when describing payment for goods/services.
