Buying Marijuana Seeds with PayPal in 2022
In 2022, internet commerce is king. People go online to buy everything from furniture to clothing, e-books and electronics. They also go online to buy cannabis seeds.
When shopping online, most stores give you a variety of payment methods, from credit cards to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Another popular payment method is PayPal. This leads many cannabis connoisseurs to ask: “Can I use PayPal for marijuana seeds?”
The answer is yes and no. Read on and we’ll explain in more detail.
The Pros of Using PayPal
Why do people love PayPal for online shopping? For one, it’s incredibly convenient. With a single username and password, PayPal gives you the ability to pay through an account that can be linked to your bank account or any credit card. You can also make payments, send, and receive money to and from your PayPal account itself.
The latter option is particularly wonderful for making purchases that you’d prefer not show up on your bank or credit card statements. All you have to do is transfer money from your bank account to your PayPal account. All you’ll see on your bank statement is a PayPal transfer. After that, the purchases you make with the transferred money are confined to PayPal and won’t register on your bank statement at all. Although it’s legal to purchase cannabis seeds in most places, there are various reasons why people may want to maintain their privacy in terms of these sorts of purchases showing up on their bank and credit card accounts – particularly if statements for those accounts are mailed to their homes.
PayPal is also a wonderfully secure way to shop. They act as gatekeepers for your financial information. In other words, if you use a credit card to make a purchase through PayPal, your account information stays with PayPal – they never share it with the merchant. PayPal simply sends them the payment and charges your credit card. Like a credit card company, PayPal constantly monitors your account for any suspicious activity that looks like it may be fraudulent so they can alert you if someone makes unauthorized purchases on your account.
Making purchases this way also affords you dispute resolution if there are any problems with a transaction, as well as purchase protection on anything you buy through PayPal. When it comes to PayPal and marijuana seeds in 2022, many buyers feel that this is a good insurance policy, especially if they’re purchasing from a little-known shop. (We’ll talk more about why that’s a bad idea, however, later in this article.)

The Down Side of Using Paypal for Cannabis Seeds
Unfortunately, as wonderful, private and convenient as it may sound to buy cannabis seeds with PayPal, in 2022, things have become so complex that it’s not usually possible.
Why? Most of the larger, more reputable seedbanks won’t take PayPal anymore. One reason for this is that PayPal has an acceptable use policy that every user must agree to when they create an account. The policy states that PayPal may not be used to send or receive payments for narcotics, steroids, controlled substances, or drug paraphernalia.
While cannabis seeds aren’t technically considered a “controlled substance” in most places, unfortunately, PayPal gets the discretion to decide what transactions constitute a violation of their rules. This is covered in PayPal’s User Agreement. This means that while a seedbank may operate for years accepting PayPal for seeds, it only takes one transaction to be flagged to potentially derail everything. Shops risk having their payments frozen and their accounts shut down.
For seedbanks that are willing to run the risk of allowing their customers to buy cannabis seeds with PayPal, commissions are very high. In 2022, PayPal charges 2.9% + $0.30 USD per transaction. This sends some online cannabis seed retailers looking for other more affordable ways to sell their product.
Which Shops Accept Paypal for Cannabis Seeds?
Unfortunately, worry about policy enforcement and high commissions has caused many of the larger, better-known seedbanks to move away from accepting PayPal seed payments. Crop King Seeds, one of our trusted and most-recommended seedbanks, was one of the latest to stop accepting PayPal. (They do, however, accept credit cards and Bitcoin, so it’s still easy to make convenient and even anonymous payments for your cannabis seeds.)
Many other smaller shops still do accept PayPal, although they try to be discrete in the way they handle the payments so as to avoid having their accounts flagged. This is a risky game, however, both for the shop and for any buyers who take the gamble of getting their PayPal accounts suspended if a cannabis seed purchase attracts notice.
For customers using PayPal to buy cannabis seeds because of the Purchase Protection promise, buyer beware! On the PayPal website, the company lists specific items that are not covered by PayPal Purchase Protection. One of the things listed is “Items that violate our policies.”
If you buy weed seeds through PayPal and receive a batch of bad seeds from a little-known seedbank, it’s unlikely that PayPal is going to have any sympathy when you call them up or email them to tell them what you’ve purchased. You could even risk having your own account frozen or suspended due to purchasing items that violate PayPal’s policies.
Your Best Bet? Buy from Reputable Seedbanks
Problems with low-quality products and seedbanks with poor customer service sparked us to create reviews of the best and most-recommended online shops to buy cannabis seeds in 2022. We hope to guide our readers to the places with the best selection of strains, the most high-quality seeds, and the most excellent customer service should a problem arise with an order.
That last bit is incredibly important. When you shop at a reputable seedbank, you shouldn’t have to worry about security or the need to buy cannabis seeds with PayPal. Larger, well-known seedbanks will keep your credit card information secure, as well as provide stealth shipping to help you maintain your privacy. If you’re worried about a cannabis seed purchase showing up on your credit card or bank statement, many online seedbanks (such as ILGM Seed Bank) now take Bitcoin. If you’re hoping to make a 100% anonymous purchase without leaving any financial footprint, buying cannabis seeds with Bitcoin is the way to go.
The point is, even with the snags cannabis fans have hit with buying marijuana seeds through Paypal, in 2022, there are still many different ways to purchase your seeds in a secure, safe manner. Check out our reviews to learn which seedbanks we love best…and happy shopping!
