i dont think there is an issue with using the e-credit cards, could be wrong though, but i never had an issue with it, but i did only use it once or twice (i know i used 2 of the cards but i cannot remember what i used the 2nd one on)

i should rephrase ... ebay owns paypal...ebay has this tendency to buy up a lot of companies....like "Bill Me Later" and with the exception of paypal they all suck.

Not quite the same policies.. Ebay will allow people to sell hookahs and herbal shisha, paypal does not.

I have heard many stories from other hookah vendors who have lost their paypal accounts just because they are hookah vendors or are employed by hookah vendors. They lost their accounts even though they never used them to accept money for hookah related items.

Ebay is MUCH more hookah friendly than paypal.

Yeah you can get prepaid cards. Walmart has some with no fees or something crazy so you pay $20 you get $20. When Ebay bought Paypal they put that ridiculous crap in there. You used to be able to use Paypal on the gun websites and alcohol sites and all kinds of stuff. Now I don't think you can.

They have different policies for different countries because the laws are different. In other non-us countries, paypal will allow tobacco sales, but NOT in the US.

Well as long as those hoses, coals, and charcoal tray don't have tobacco in them you should be good to go.
