Payment options that we currently offer will be available at checkout.
If a payment method that you previously used is no longer at checkout, this is not an error – it means that we do not have it as an option now.
Always read the payment instruction emails we send each time you make a new order as sometimes this information, like bank details or a postal address, can change and we’ve experienced customers sending payments to old details they have on record for us and going through a hassle to claim it back – Please take the time to read!
We often get asked why we don’t accept PayPal and other options…
The short answer: We would if we could.
We are limited to the payment options we have because of the hostility businesses like ours face from financial institutions. Forget the fact that all of our products are legal and sold for an entirely legitimate purpose, there is still a stigma surrounding some of the products we sell (most likely microscopy spores).
But in saying that, we have even had PayPal hold all of our money for 12months for a website that sold gourmet mushroom kits and didn’t stock microscopy spores at all… Maybe they just don’t like mushrooms, who knows?
We decide what we sell and don’t though, not some clueless representative of Paypal, Stripe or any other payment provider who is adamant that our spore syringes are used to inject into an arm – not even kidding.
We face a constant battle to provide payment options on our website and due to the almost weekly emails from customers suggesting that we offer PayPal or card payments.. we thought it made sense to shed some light on the situation here!
