What is PayPal's policy regarding transactions for prescription drugs?

We don't allow transactions for prescription drugs and certain products that are regulated by government and other recognized agencies.

For example, we don’t allow:

  • Prescription drug transactions unless the merchant has received prior approval from PayPal. PayPal also considers the marketing of a product and may restrict transactions for products marketed to function as a prescription drug.
  • Transactions for recalled drugs, unapproved drugs, and dietary supplements that have been banned by government agencies.
  • The sale of certain medical devices that don’t comply with all applicable regulations.
