To warn our members and other cammodels about the potential problems of using Paypal EmelieSky decided to write an article about it. She also gives you good alternatives what you could use instead of Paypal...
Paypal has a zero tolerance towards adult content. If they find out that you use an account for that, you will lose both the account and the money on it. If you have a personal account too, it's possible that you will also lose that one. You can even be black listed and not be able to open up a new account in the future. Many customers know this. They can insist on paying you through Paypal, get their skypeshow (for example) and then contact Paypal and say something about their account been hacked or used by a friend. They can't say that THEY paid for adult material through the service, because then they will lose their account too. They just have to give PP a hint about what's going on. PP is like a blood hound on sniffing out accounts used for this. It's not a question about IF they find out; it's a question about WHEN they find out. Someone WILL eventually "sell you out" to them.
Another thing is that your personal information can become visible, often quite easily. Since Paypal is a good service to use online, it's not worth the risk of losing accounts and become black listed. Even if you transfer all the money directly after seeing them on the account, it's not worth the risk. There are other options out there.
If you work on a camsite, using that currency is often the best alternative. I think every payment service is taking a small fee, and some of them don't make the payment go through directly. Make sure to read what you sign up for regarding this and how they handle your personal information.
Regarding Amazon gifts, if you accept this, the customer can cancel the purchase if it's not shipped yet. Don't see a service as paid as a gift until you have it in your hands. Remember that Amazon can reveal your personal information if the product is from a third party seller. Gift cards are a more secure way to go. Remember that even if some of the services has confirmed that they are okay with adult content, they often have a stipulation about bestiality, child pornography (which can involve pretending to be under age) and obscenity.
