Authorize.net enforces TOS unfairly.

If you are a big customer then you are able to elude their TOS enforcement team. Authorize.net does not allow internet tobacco sales, right? authorize.net/company/terms/

2. LAWFUL USE.

1. is unlawful or violates any applicable local, state, federal, national or international law, statute, ordinance, or regulation including, without limitation, Credit Card Association rules, consumer protection law, Internet tobacco sales, firearm sales, unfair competition, antidiscrimination or false advertising.


How are there are a ton of companies online selling tobacco using Authorize.net when its against their TOS. I'm wondering what Auth.net CEO is getting a kickback from these companies, or perhaps free smokes. I asked Auth.net in March about it and yet all the companies in question are still using Auth.net for internet tobacco.

Here are just a few examples:

miamicigarshop.com
tophatcigar.com
cigar5packs.com

Note the Auth.net seal on the page and when clicked it shows they are approved to sell tobacco on the internet...against their TOS. [purplex]
