    We no longer can offer Amazon pay as a checkout option. We have now been locked out of them and PayPal for having firearms related content.

    Featured listings and $1 a month subscriptions will be temporarily down while I find a replacement.

    To start or renew a regular subscription you can do so here and I will manually add it.

    https://www.theoutdoorstrader.com/help/classifiedsoptions/

    I'll update this page as I get new information.

    Cant you file some kind of suit on them ?? I dont know the law and dont pretend to. I am sure it would be too expensive anyway.
    It just seems like they go out of the way to do your business harm by not allowing you to do business.
    Just a comment from the deplorable sector.

    Wow. That’s a shame. Thanks for staying on top of it and keeping our addiction alive!

    Is it me or are the beats of the distant boogaloo drums seem to be getting closer?

    Why not just take credit card payments?

    That's probably what I'm going to have to do.

    It's interesting that I don't see anything in the prohibited items or activities that mentions "firearm related content", only sales of those items. We are not using Amazon pay to "buy" firearms at all. Either way, it's not like they are going to change their mind...

    This is the only firearm statement in the prohibited item or activities that I see...

    "Firearms and Weapons — includes ammunition, guns, rifles, shotguns, pistols, other firearms, knives (automatic, spring-loaded knives, throwing, etc.), brass knuckles, or other weapons."

    I'm waiting on a real lawyer that understands the constitution to sue Amazon and Paypal's ass. Enjoyment of a constitutionally protected right is not something a company doing business with the public can discriminate against...

    Sure they can...they cannot be forced to process our payments any more than a bakery in CO can be forced to make LGBTQ themed cakes.....

    The Bakery won that round.....they don't have to make the cake.
    Amazon would win, they would not have to take the money.
