Payment Methods

Why can’t you accept Paypal?

This is a question we are often asked at amazingbags and we would like to clear up any misconceptions about the payment methods we accept and don’t accept, and the reason.

We used to be able to accept credit cards and PayPal but recently we were forced to stop using them due to the payment processors finding out we are dealing with replicas, which is against Visa and Mastercards’ and PayPal’s regulations.

Firstly, if PayPal would allow us to use them as a payment processor we would love to accept PayPal as it would make running our business much easier. We know it is easy for our clients to use and secure. But unfortunately Paypal does not work with replica sellers. This is because brand name companies (e.g. Louis Vuitton, Celine etc.) will sue them and fine them for processing payments for replica products. As a result we cannot accept payments from Paypal. To make it clear – it is not because we do not want you to have a secure transaction, but it is because we are replica sellers and we are not allowed to use them.

Secondly, a similar issue occurs with credit card processors. They will also be fined if they process payments for replica products. This is why our payment methods are currently limited to: Western Union, and Wire Transfer. We know that these are not ideal payment methods and are always looking for better payment methods (including ways to accept credit cards) to offer our clients. We hope to make it clear that your comfortability & security as a valued customer concern us and we are always trying to make it more easy to shop with us.
