    Hey guys!

    It's a sad day for Happy Vaper!

    PayPal contacted us yesterday and advised us that our products violate their acceptable use policy. They limited our account until www.happyvaper.com removed all references to PayPal and removed the PayPal payment option. We complied.

    You can still make payments using Visa, Mastercard, Amex or Interac Email Money Transfers.

    We apologize for any inconvenience!

    All the best and Happy Vaping!
    Jack

    Sorry to hear that Jack.....

    I guess it was only a matter of time...... however, I just can't see their validation with regards to your NON nicotine flavours and such.

    Are they gonna start banning baking supplies next ?? SHEEEESH !!

    VapeOn,

    Yeah. I hear ya. Unfortunately, as far as they are concerned, it is the hardware they have the issue with.

    Hasta la vista, PayPal!

    Sorry to those inconvenienced by this!

    Vape Happy!

    I know you're still taking CC, but what about an alternative e-commerce solution?

    What do you guys use if you're not using PayPal? I read something on this a while ago, maybe not here; maybe on a UK forum (?)...

    How hard is it to start something like PayPal and make it available to all vape dealers everywhere? If I had the skillz, I'd be looking into that.

    What about alternatives in the meantime? Anyone got any intel?

    Not here.
    I'm wondering if you can use the Amazon Payments in Canada. Apparently, it's much like Paypal. I know I'd rather pay through Amazon than Paypal!

    Good Luck!,

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for the input! Unfortunately, I don't believe either Google Checkout or Amazon Payments are available in Canada :(

    Now HapPay VaperPal! That could be nice!

    Some day, maybe we could even get our OWN currency??? Muwahaha :evil:

    How do you get a merchant account for taking credit cards?

    How much MOOLAH?

    Hey Bombenhagel!

    You get them from a payment processor or bank. Not much MOOLAH :)

    Vape Happy!

    I stopped supporting vendors who used paypal months ago, so I'm kind of happy I can start looking at your products.

    Hey Scott!

    Despite what we feel politically about PayPal, as long as they were willing to let us provide their services, we would continue supporting our customers with another payment option. Now that we no longer have that option, a number of our customers have communicated that they are no longer able to purchase from us.

    Glad you are now willing to start looking at our products but I feel sorry for those Canadians that no longer feel comfortable ordering from Happy Vaper.

    All the best and Happy Vaping!
    Jack

    Would people rather use paypal then even COD? That's crazy to me. With COD if for whatever reason your package doesn't show up your not out any money. I use it all the time for certain vendors..

    Thought HV had COD

    Apparently the "Cash" option refers to picking up in person.

    My mistake
