The Australian Palestinian Advocacy Network (APAN) has urged Australians to boycott online payments provider Paypal. It accuses Paypal of engaging in "online apartheid" by providing its services to Israelis but not to Palestinians living in Gaza and the West Bank, even though they use the same currency, the Israeli shekel. PayPal states its lack of service to Palestine is not politically motivated, but that there are certain compliance and regulatory issues that need to be addressed before it can provide its service to Palestinians.
