There is a American knife retailer who has done the double flip. They have banned Ebay, it makes for interesting reading. If you're interested- GPKNIVES.
I just went to the site cudgee, and I read about them banning PayPal, but don't know what you mean about them banning Ebay. They sell their own stuff, where would Ebay fit in to their sales? Thanks! 8)
Sorry my friend, had a serious Seniors Moment ::dang:: ::dang:: ::dang:: and you are most correct, i meant to say Pay Pal. I have stated in a previous post my problems with them. Mea Culpa Mea Culpa Mea Maxima Cupla. ::handshake::

No problem buddy, ::handshake:: I have those moments more times than I care to admit! ::facepalm:: Could you please provide a link to your previous post regarding the trouble, or even just the name of the thread, I'd like to read about it? Thanks! 8)

I'll just tell you now mate. ::tu:: I have been buying knives from overseas for a while now, it is my only option for variety we just don't have the retail outlets for Traditionals over here, and they only have a small selection and are expensive, sometimes a lot more than buying them in myself. Never had a problem with postage, delivery, customs or anything else. That has all changed, Pay Pal won't except my payment now if a separate invoice has to be issued, they just say cannot except payment from your region unless you are a member, i always previously payed as a guest. So i was forced to sign up as a member, not something that i wanted to do, but was forced into it if i wanted to buy a knife that i wanted. But after signing up and giving a lot of personal details still had the same issue. I contacted them, not by phone because you can't, not by email because you can't, but by their chat over the computer method. A nightmare, after 3 days, no answer to my problem and nothing was resolved, i contacted 3 of the sellers that i deal with and informed them of the problem. One of them had 4 knives packaged ready to be posted on completion of my payment, they all contacted Pay Pal, and they all got the same result-NOTHING, no satisfactory answer to their enquiries and no answer to why Pay Pal all of a sudden were costing them business. But the stupid irony of the issue is, if i buy from a website that has the cost of the item and postage or extra charges on the one invoice on the website, no problem, it only occurs when a separate invoice has to be issued, usually after working out postage, or in one case the retailer gives me a discount because i have been a loyal customer. It is just so ridiculous it is not funny, but it has stopped me from buying a few knives that i really wanted, especially in the 4 that were packaged ready to be sent. So can you see my frustration, i have my own views to why it is happening, but i don't want to express them on an open forum, might cause to much angst. You have a good weekend mate, and take care over there, you are all going through difficult times. :D ::handshake::

Thanks cudgee! ::handshake:: I never, ever wanted to use Paypal, and didn't until I was forced to for an ebay purchase, but I make purchases from a seller here, and P/P was the method that is the best for these purchases, but as soon as I'm finished with my upcoming purchases, P/P will be in my rear-view mirror! I know exactly your frustration with their "Contact Us" system, it's totally ridiculous and useless to boot. I have a question for you! Being where you are, did you ever order autos from Roadsideimports, and if so, do you know what happened to them? ::shrug:: All 4 of his sites are shut-down, and no explanation was posted. ::shrug:: You have a great weekend as well, and stay safe! 8)
