As of today I have removed Paypal from my webstore here because I cannot, in good conscience, continue to support a credit card processing company that is causing the ban of some of my books through Smashwords and ARE. I would be hypocrite to cry foul and then continue to support them by using them to process transactions on my own websites.
I don’t know where I’m going with this yet. I need to find a comparable service to Paypal and sadly it appears Paypal dominates the market.
Alas, I won’t be closing my Paypal account completely because sadly in order to get paid by my distributors (ironically Smashwords and ARE, and Lulu) I need to keep that account open. So if it comes right down to it – if the ONLY way a consumer can pay me is through Paypal, then I will honor that method of payment. It simply won’t be my primary choice of accepting payments and those who want to order using Paypal will need to contact me via email. Please note the Paypal links will remain on the demonolatry.org website until I have time set up a new merchant account somewhere else and add new linkage.
Thank you for your understanding and I hope this doesn’t cause any inconvenience.
