I'm not sure if that's what PayPal does, but whenever I saw fraud policies in companies, they never provided specific rules violated and for a good reason. If you know the exact rule you're breaking, you know what else to change for your scam to work. Pretty much the same reason you get "authentication failed" rather than "your password's 2nd letter didn't match".

But the problem here is that paypal doesn't tell you if you're business is "ban-able" ahead of time. They have a list, and terms of services, but even if you followed them to the letter, they can still ban you, and not provide a reason.

This isn't a good foundation for a business to depend on, so i would completely avoid having paypal as the only option.
