there's flour available on ebay but after closing my paypal account (which was already delinked from ebay) it gives unspecified errors whenever i try to buy with my card. if i generate a new card number it works for a couple tx then starts failing. what other markets that aren't paypal shills are available? amazon.com is useless here and i don't like buying from them anyway.
