Why we don’t accept PayPal

In order to accept PayPal payments, PayPal requires that we provide to them all information related to your purchase including detailed information on the specific items purchased. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and all other major credit cards do not require this information, they just verify that your card is valid and verified, and that you have sufficient credit to make the purchase. We view PayPal’s requirements as an unnecessary invasion of your privacy and we do not provide this information to anyone. Hopefully at some point in the future PayPal will change this requirement. Until then we will continue to accept all major credit cards but not PayPal.

As an additional note, when you enter your credit card information on cranksports.com we actually never see the information, it is only available to our credit card process, Stripe. In addition, if you elect to have your card information saved (most customers do not), it is only saved by Stripe. Again, your credit card details never touch our systems. We designed it this way to give our customers the highest possible level of confidence that their information is safe.

Thanks for your understanding and loyal support!
