Saltwater Pros Discontinues PayPal as Payment Option

Effective June 13, 2021 - Saltwater Pros will no longer use PayPal as a payment option.

"Saltwater Pros has removed PayPal as a payment option for the foreseeable future," said Saltwater Pros CEO, Sean Hakes. "Their practices hurt small business. Specifically, holding funds from retail stores like Saltwater Pros until well after the product has been delivered", he added. 

In order to be competitive in the marketplace, Saltwater Pros has to pre-purchase inventory which is resold to customers around the United States. When a customer purchases a product using PayPal, PayPal will place a hold on the funds for days, sometimes weeks after the purchase.

For now, Saltwater Pros customers can checkout with their favorite debit or credit card, use Amazon Pay or financing through Affirm.
