***IMPORTANT*** PayPal & Gems from Iran

Just got this message from one of the marketplaces I work with:

"GEMSTONES FROM IRAN - WARNING
Apparently paypal will not process any payments for products with the word Iran, Iranian etc in the title or description.Please be aware when listing items from Iran to not mention the origin.

One seller has had their paypal account blocked because of this. "

Don’t kill the messenger please! :slight_smile:

Wonder if that includes items marked ‘Persian’ as well.

No idea, but, I wouldn’t risk it.

If your customer insists, you can always put ‘Persian’ on the invoice that you send to them with the item.

Thanks for the heads up, I’ll give them a wide berth for now, I think.
Easier to play safe than sorry.

Thanks for the heads up. I have a few stones I was thinking about listing but I will hold off for now. Heaven knows I have plenty more that I can replace them with.
All the best,
