On Monday, after what Geller says was a storm of protest, PayPal backed down.
Geller said she received a phone call from PayPal early Monday morning informing her it had all been a “misunderstanding.”
“They called me back and said it was a misunderstanding and we’re all good,” Geller said. “They obviously received an overwhelming response.” (…)
“It is a victory that they came back crawling,” she said, adding she will no longer be using PayPal, but a similar service called GPal.
“Apparently some disenfranchised PayPalers started the site and promote Second Amendment issues,” she said, adding she’d received several recommendations about the service over the weekend.
PJM made repeated requests for comment to PayPal which were not returned. In fact, we were given a non-working phone number as the number for a spokesperson.
PJM also made multiple attempts to contact former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, who is running on the Republican ticket for governor of California. PayPal is owned by eBay.
