READ THIS: Paying with Paypal
Reposting this because this needs to be spread around.

SO, apparently Furaffinity has garnered attention from paypal in the worst way. Transactions with information in the Subject or Description that pertains to Furaffinity will result in the user being blocked from paypal!

This, as only I've heard and I've not yet seen it happen, is due to the fact FurAffinity has been flagged by paypal as a pornography website, which is against Paypal's main Terms of Service.

This most definately affects almost EVERY commissioner, so please when sending transactions Do not mention your FA username, the words FA or FurAffinity, or likely derivatives on paypal

I'm sure you've heard by now, but this is not true.

FA is not "flagged" per-se, but they're not stupid. This drama started because some idiot put "gay bondage" in the description. Others have had similar problems as well. They have basically a "no porn" policy. So if you say it's for anything adult related, they'll "limit" your account. So if your username contains adult content, don't use it. XD

The only reason FA is in question is because they sited another transaction that had reference to FA with the user name, at which point the people doing the investigation would've went to the site and cross-referenced it to see it was a porn image. But just to say "I'm <username> at FA" doesn't raise any keywords on its own, that was done by a manual investigation after some idiot already raised the flag on that person's account.

Furaffinity's response on the story is a little different than the rumor tells it.
