Vaping has been providing a safer alternative to millions of smokers worldwide for over a decade.

Numerous credible studies from around the world declare that vaping is at least 95% safer than traditional Tobacco products.

Unfortunately private companies tend to villainize vaping and compile their policies based on political pressure and false information.

Vaping and Nicotine Based E-Liquids are legal and regulated by the government in most first world nations. Millions of people are turning to e-cigarettes everyday through the means of local shops and online retailers.

PayPal's acceptable use policy is currently unclear and biased. As per the policy PayPal requires approval for online retailers selling vaping products (Devices, Pod Vapes, E-liquids).

As it stands today, PayPal has not approved any ecommerce retailers in US & Canada to use the payment platform for such products. However there are numerous vaping distributors and B2B companies around the world using PayPal's platform to process payments every day, which contradicts their acceptable use policy.

PayPal is the largest, most trusted and secure payment processor. So far in 2019 they have processed over $178 Billion US Dollars. We ask that you support us in asking PayPal to approve legitimate vaping business in US & Canada to accept the worlds most beloved way to pay, and not to alienate the end consumer of vaping products.

And PayPal we ask you to stand up to big to Big Tobacco, and remove the roadblock for millions of smokers trying to access safer and legitimate smoking alternatives.
