Otherwise, customers can complain with PayPal or their credit card company that they did not receive the goods. Then, the transaction is in dispute and the merchant must pay back the money. At least as a security deposit. Until the case is cleared.

As soon as they get a hint that goods are not shipped (and a down payment is easy to identify), they keep back a big portion of the funds they would have to pay to the merchant. So that they can easily withstand any disputes and they don't have to get the money back from a fraudulent merchant. To some extent it is even understandable what they are doing because they don't know the merchant well.

And it is not even possible that the Neo900 customers can waive their rights to complain and explicitly confirm that they want to pass the money as risk money and they understand the risks. Paypal does not even listen to that. They follow their rules.

That is a very good explanation of the PayPal issue, thank you.  I think 
you are right, the PayPal issue probably has nothing to do with Western 
governments trying to slow or halt development of the Neo900.
