  1. Does anyone know what happened to Dimepiece Los Angeles celebrity streetwear brand? I seem to be unable to proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in Vogue that the brand was acquired by a UK-based hedge fund for $50 million. I’ve just bought the Meditate HeavyBlend Crewneck Sweatshirt from Amazon and totally love it xox

  2. I run a vape store website directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that also markets CBD products. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop web directory. We do not sell CBD product lines like CBD oil. We solely provide marketing and advertising services to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health Store and if you take a close look, you will witness that they supply a comparatively extensive series of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to different firms. Due to this constraint, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restricted my payment possibilities and currently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in London and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is completely against the law and discriminatory as it should be applying an uniform criterion to all companies. I am yet to get in touch with an additional attorney from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
