Hey everybody,

there are news in Germany that might interest you concerning PayPal:

A German shop for alcohol and cigarettes, also selling Cuban products like rum and cigars, has been requested by PayPal to NOT sell Cuban products in Germany anymore due to the USA-Cuba-embargo from 1962.
The shop's reaction: they kicked PayPal Wink
http://www.golem.de/1107/85243.html

Now, EBay as PayPal's parent company, also closes EBay-Shops selling Cuban products.
These 20 shops now intend to prepare an accusation against PayPal and EBay.
http://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/webwelt/article13513283/Ebay-setzt-Kuba-Embargo-auch-in-Deutschland-durch.html


This might be good news for bitcoins I think!!

On the first shop's facebook site I have placed a recommendation to accept bitcoins:
https://www.facebook.com/rumundco

It is German, but you will find the linked bitcoin video;)
Please vote or leave a comment.

Wish us good luck to get this into press:)

Great idea, but bit-pay.com will only work for them if they want BTC deposits. USD deposits are only for US companies for the time being.

For some reason the currency issuers, banks and intermediaries like Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, etc. seem to think business needs them when really it is the other way around and they are not vital to the success of businesses.
