Today there are only a few seed banks worldwide that accept PayPal. There are speculations that some online seed banks are not accredited because these may not be trusted by the payment system. Always double-check the website if they accept PayPal before wasting your time choosing the perfect strain to purchase. Then if not, I am sure there are other ways to purchase your seed in a secure and safe manner.
As we all know, PayPal has become the safest way to pay for anything that you purchase online. PayPal took the eCommerce world by storm when it became Ebay’s partner and since then played a key role in the online world.
There is no risk for you as a buyer as the transaction will be discreet. No mentions of the name of the company or what you are buying online.
It states that “All receivable payments from PayPal that are used in buying steroids, controlled substances, narcotics or drug paraphernalia is strictly prohibited”. That is the reason why some become pessimistic when using PayPal.
Some may have second thoughts about ordering marijuana seeds online, one of the issues is choosing what payment channel to use. The buyer always wants to be secure when checking out the item. If you check on several seed banks’ websites, you may have noticed that some offer PayPal as a payment channel. Most of these seed banks accept all major credit cards, Bitcoin, Money Transfer and a lot more. You may still find smaller shops that accept PayPal as a method of payment. Although they try their best to handle payments discretely to avoid the flagging of their accounts.

The reason why some seed banks do not have Paypal is that they charge high commission rates. Many of the seed banks that offer online selling are not very big companies. A third party vendor will eat up part of the profit, which is not reasonable. PayPal has a policy that every user must agree to before signing up.
Because PayPal is very serious about protecting your privacy online it takes a long process to sign up. First, you need to sign up from their site but after you’re done, you can’t use your account yet. You must verify your account by adding a bank account or credit card.
Two top seed banks currently accept PayPal payments, Crop King Seeds and Sun West Genetics.
PayPal is easy to use and is accepted by a wide variety of shops and stores online. It is available in almost all countries plus, adding money to your account is easy to do. You can use your credit card to add money, just link your credit card or debit card to your PayPal account. You can also link your bank account if you don’t have a credit card.
PayPal Application is Tedious
A lot of seed bank sites still don’t accept PayPal as payment. This is why we only have two confirmed seed banks on our list. There is no information if other sites are considering PayPal this year.
PayPal is one of the most trusted online payments around but it’s not for everyone. Here are the pros and cons of using PayPal to buy cannabis seeds online.
Sun West Genetics is another seed bank that accepts PayPal payments. This seed bank is from Canada but will ship orders to anywhere around the world. Sun West is popular for their organic seeds and prides in offering only the freshest and easy to germinate seeds online.
Take note of the following disadvantages of using PayPal to buy cannabis seeds.
They have a large selection, tons of great deals, relatively fast shipping (they’re in Amsterdam). And, most importantly, they have a germination guarantee. If you get a seed that does not germinate, they will replace it.
And if you don’t care as much about anonymity, you can always use a credit card. Reputable seed banks keep your information secure and with a credit card, you are always able to file a dispute and get your money back.
This is the primary reason most seed banks do not take payments.
Reputable Seed Banks
The following are our favorite seed banks. All of them have been around for a long time and have a history of delivering quality marijuana seeds. Most are located in Europe, but they offer fast delivery to the US.
When it comes to seed banks, they generally let them do business. At first.
It’s true that you won’t be able to get your money back using most other payment methods (like cryptocurrency) either, but if you buy your seeds from a reputable seed bank, this won’t be an issue.
While the physical stores are all in Canada, Crop King ships worldwide from their online store. Shipping costs are a bit high, with a minimum charge of $20 in the US and Canada and $30 to most other countries (costs can go up to $40). This gets you express shipping with tracking, plus guaranteed delivery. If your seeds do not arrive, they will send you new ones free of charge.
