Seedbank FAQ’s

What payment methods can I use?

Most good seed banks offer a number of different ways to pay for your seeds:

Credit/Debit Cards – Most seed banks take payment with debit or credit cards without any problem. However, placing an order with standard bank cards sometimes won’t go through if the overseas transaction has been flagged as suspicious (in case you don’t usually order items from abroad using that card) This might make other payment methods more appealing.

Bitcoin – Bitcoin is anonymous, safe and secure. It’s therefore perfect for this type of transaction and the method of payment that most seed banks prefer.

Cash – Paying with cash means that there will be no record of the transaction on your bank account. However, most seedbanks appear very discretely on your bank statement anyway, and sending cash in the post carries some risk.

Paypal– It’s very rare for a seed company to offer a Paypal payment option. This is because Paypal strictly prohibits cannabis seed sales – a company who sells seeds will instantly get blocked once Paypal discovers what they are selling.

Bank transfer – A standard direct transfer from your bank account to the seed banks. Fast and secure.

Cheques – A very outdated method of payment, but many seedbanks offer this option. It’s secure but will take a long time to process.

What is the best method of payment?

The best method of payment to use in a seed bank to use is definitely bitcoin. It only takes a few minutes to set up and means that all of your transactions are 100% anonymous, safe and secure. Many seedbanks offer big discounts for payments made with bitcoin, so this is definitely something you should look into.

Why are there no good US Seedbanks?

The current situation in the US is that although it’s safe to order seeds online, it’s very risky to sell them or send them from one place to another. This is the reason why it’s hard to find a long-established seed bank in the country.

What will happen if customs open my package?

Current customs laws in America indicates that if your seed package from abroad does get caught in the mail, you will not be put on any “list”.

Instead, the U.S. customs agents will simply toss the seeds and send you what’s left of the package. They also send an official letter letting you know that your seeds were confiscated.

If this happens to you, simply contact the seed bank with evidence and they will gladly give you a replacement package.

Do I need an account to purchase seeds?

No, most seedbanks allow you to check out as a guest without having to register.
