As in them being blocked? More likely it's an IP issue. Most of the larger VPN services have known ranges of IP addresses and some services block.
drmike: Yes for paypal but I;m using a VPN thru one of my servers and not one that has a known IP address from a VPN provider.
micktiegs_8: Curious - is it an encryption thing that people use VPNs for ebay/paypal?
As to in general, it;s usually someone trying to say they're making a purchase from one country which is where the end node for the VPN service is instead of where they really are. Netflix made a big deal about a year ago trying to put an end to this.
edit: We offer VPM services to our clients as part of their hosting package but since a large portion of our clients are North America based which is also where our servers are, few use them. A couple of the more paranoid folks do though. For them it's a security issue in general.
