PayPal has banned the former leader of the English Defense League, Tommy Robinson, for violating the terms and conditions.
The online payment service would have told Robinson that he would no longer process payments for him because he violated the terms and conditions of the website, the BBC reports.
PayPal said that its platform could not be used to promote "hatred, violence or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory."
In a statement to MailOnline, a spokesperson for PayPal said that it could not comment on individual customers.

The spokesman said, however, that PayPal regularly evaluates accounts to ensure that the use matches the acceptable usage policy of the company.
All accounts that violate the policy are closed.
& # 39; We carefully review accounts to ensure that our services are used in accordance with our old Acceptable Use Policy and take action as necessary.
& # 39; We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hatred, violence or other forms of intolerance that are discriminatory, "said the spokesman.

Finding the right balance between maintaining free expression and open dialogue and protecting principles of tolerance, diversity and respect for all people is a challenge many companies are struggling with today.
We work hard to find the right balance and ensure that our decisions are value driven and not political. & # 39;
It comes after PayPal has banned the InfoWars website of American conspiracy theory in September because it promoted hatred and intolerance.
Nearly 65,000 people signed a petition from SumofUs, the global advocacy group, calling on PayPal to break ties with Robinson.
Tom Barns, campaign manager at SumOfUs said: & # 39; This is a big step forward. Hate crimes rise in the UK and Europe and fascists like Tommy Robinson need money to spread their message about hatred. & # 39;
Robinson – whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon – was also banned from Twitter in March.
PayPal said that its platform can not be used to "hate, abuse, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory." to promote.
Earlier this week, Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC announced that Robinson was no longer subject to any bail conditions after referring his contempt of court to the Attorney General.
Robinson was released from prison in August after three prominent judges had disdained a disdain in court at the Leeds Crown Court.
But he can be sent back to prison if he is found again in contempt of filming people in a Huddersfield nursing test in Leeds and broadcasting the images on social media.
The court heard that he denied that the Movertoewet was being violated and that a broadcast would probably seriously damage the trial.
The announcement follows reports that Robinson could earn more than £ 1 million later this month on a possible trip to the US.
He is reportedly waiting to see if the US authorities will grant him a visa.
Judge Hilliard had referred the case to Prosecutor General Geoffrey Cox QC after receiving a Robinson document last month.
If the case had been heard by Judge Hilliard in the Old Bailey, witnesses, including Robinson, could not be cross-examined.
