Default "Soft" Limit Help

So I use paypal because most of my clients use it and it makes everything alot more smooth, but as we know paypal isn't always on our side. With that being said I had 3 payments, 120$, 200$, and 150$. They were all send to me within 30 minutes, all three clients sent via friends and family, which I prefer however we know this flags paypals system. I tried to buy something on Ebay for 250$ and I got an error "this payment cannot be used" I was like well okay, let me try and send a test payment of 10 bucks to a friend and it didn't work, I got the notorious "We're sorry, but we can't send your payment right now". I did my research and found out my situation is called a soft limit. Any tips on what I should do? Such as call or wait it off. Thank you!

How old is this account?

Aside from those 3 F&F payments, what other transaction history, if any exists on this account?

Those F&F payments all made within such a small time window are reason enough for concern to PayPal as they would be deemed rather suspicious.

A few 100-175$ sales within the past 60 days, and lots of 15-50$ sales. The account is fairly new (2months) but when I just thought consistent higher sales would help the age factor. Also yeah 450$ in 30 minutes was a bad timing thing. Eh

Maybe I should add a VCC or VBA?

I get emails like that from China Air. Drives me nuts. But I love their discounts.

Wanna eat now. Fancy a plate of prawn dumplings.



PS, Tanner, PayPal like accounts to have some security. Your issue will be finding what will work. Not sure if you would have luck with a VBA. They are out of favor.
