    Anything with adult content. It is against Paypal policy and they might suspend or limit your account if they find out that you are using your account to pay for 'adult services'.

    I would stay away from purchasing things on Ebay with Paypal. In particular, don't allow Ebay to store your PayPal info for a "quick checkout". The problem is, that just as you are about to check out, in tiny print, they list the last four digits of the account they are going to bill and often times it is the wrong account. If you don't catch that in time, you will be billing the wrong account which can set off a whole other chain of events leading to NSF fines and other costs.

    I would also strongly advise against ordering anything from Alibaba. Every item I have ever ordered from them was counterfeit, and/or they only shipped me a partial order and kept giving me the run around that the rest was on the way, only it never shipped.

    You should stay away from sites that match the description of Paypal's terms of service. You should stay away from sites that would raise a red flag which would make paypal freeze your funds and the like.

    I just google the site and read the reviews before I buy anything on a site I am iffy about. If you don't find any reviews then it might be a new site and might be too risky to buy from. I would rather buy from a site that is reputable than to buy from some site that has a deal that is too good to be true.

    There aren't any real websites out there that could get you banned, just for buying from them whilst using Paypal, or at least I would like to think not anyway, as they are just the third party , the middlemen if you will.

    Just be careful though, if there is a website you want to buy from in particular, then check it out and see what people think about it before buying let alone selling to it.

    I hope that helps.

    As others have said, if it's to good to be true, than it is. Don't fall for this kind of stuff. I also don't understand what exactly paypal has to do with this and why you are avoiding certain websites.

    PayPal, eBay, and just about any of their alternatives. Stick to buying with Amazon and the old fashioned credit card payment method.

    I am also not sure what kind of websites you really want to avoid in terms of what. Maybe you can expand your question and be specific am happy to help out.

    It's a good idea to read Paypal's terms of service, especially the parts where they tell you what to not buy or trade. Adult stuff for example (escorts, site payments) is something that can get you banned. Live animals or drugs and illegal substances is another example. And what the other posters here said, about buying from sellers with 'offers too good' is another thing that can ban you.

    Now, all of these examples are situational. You can buy or do some questionable stuff and never hear from Paypal but sometimes you'll be banned at the first sign of tos violation.

    In my experience you mostly want to avoid anything that seems to good to be true, and anythings that wants you to give them a wide amount of cash in the first few seconds of you being on the site. Anything that promises you the world with a simply way of getting it, is never true, and you would want to avoid those. Any websites you don't trust just Google them with scam at the end. Reviews, payment proof, and everything you need will come up. Then you can decided if the website is trusted or not.
