Mastercard, Visa Stop Payment Processing on Pornhub

Mastercard, Visa Stop Payment Processing on Pornhub
  • Mastercard and Visa have stopped processing payments on Pornhub
  • This is as a result of an alleged unlawful child sex abuse content released on the Pornhub site.
  • Mastercard plans to permanently ban payment with its card on the Pornhub site.

Online payment giants Mastercard and Visa will stop processing payment on Pornhub. According to a Reuters report, this is as a result of an alleged unlawful child sex abuse content on the said adult site.

Additionally, the New York Times brought out a confirmed investigation on Pornhub videos that went viral. Soon after the investigation, Mastercard said it will forever stop its card usage on the Pornhub site.

Following the New York Times investigation, Pornhub addressed the issue as “disappointing.” Pornhub continued that the above-mentioned should not have happened right after the site implemented a ban on video downloads.

Alongside Mastercard, Visa also suspended payments until the investigation has ended. Pornhub denied many of the allegations, saying that Mastercard and Visa ending payments for the site were “crushing” for users.

Pornhub said,

This news is crushing for the hundreds of thousands of models who rely on our platform for their livelihoods.

Pornhub has announced that it is putting measures in place to do away with illegal content on its platform. Pornhub claims it will only allow verified users’ accounts to upload content as time goes on.

Furthermore, PayPal has also announced that it will not offer services in cooperation with Pornhub anymore. Nevertheless, PayPal argued that Pornhub already accepts Tether (USDT) and Bitcoin cryptocurrency payments on its site.
