Default Does anyone get 0 holds on their paypal?

I'm still trying to figure out these holds. Right now I sell cheap items for under $10 and all the payments are instant payments. If I sell higher priced items in the same category, say $50 items, will these payments be held?

Account Metrics are:
* 72 Transcations
* $1,928 in sales
* Seller Level: Above Standard
* Account is just over about a year old

I've read online about paypal holds, and am personally most of my paypal accounts hold the money for 21 days. I think paypal takes this serious around the world.

Why are you still getting 21 day hold? Has it not been 90 days since 1st sale?

It's not always just to do with amount you sell, and date from first sale.

More recently it's become a lot more about consistency as well. So if there is a spike in the amount your selling, there's going to be holds.

This was introduced by PayPal to prevent people circumventing their 21 day hold rules.

I should also add, the holds will only (usually) be placed on the higher value items ($50), your $10 sales would still come through instantly.

He's not getting any holds at the moment he's asking when he's moves up to $50 items if he will start receiving holds..

every single new account I used even though I sold $5 items got a 21 day hold.
But once that hold is gone, it's gone regardless the $ amount

No, as long as its been 90 days from his 1st sale, there should be no holds on on $50 sales. With your sale history, as long as accts in good standing, there should be not anything suspicious for them to "hold funds". But with PayPal you never know lol

some of my accounts have been off from the 21 day hold limit. but some times i still get hold for a transaction occasionally. some times 2 different customers buy from me the same product for the same price on the same day. one is instant payment. no holds. but the other is holding.

I had an account that actually has holds randomly for a month... it's a 4 year old account.

It's really annoying, specially the account is one of my best ones.

No holds at the moment but I'm selling low priced items. I'm about to start selling $50-$200 items soon and I'm hoping all these will be instant payments as well.

Just test it by selling one item. If its an account you've built up history on, it won't have any issues. In fact, selling a few high value items now and then can help the account become stronger (not high risk items though).

As I said before, if there happens to be any hold on the payment, usually it will just be that particular transaction, i.e. your other $10 sales will come through as normal.

Let us know how it pans out for you. Good Luck!

So right now as I study my items, it seems like there's a $25 cutoff for holds. Every payment under $25 is instant and everything over $25 is put on hold.

Yes definitely, I sell items in the higher price range and I would say around 50/50 of the payments I receive are held by paypal. I wish I received all instant payments like you lol

No all my payments are not instant, lol. Only items under $25. Anything over this threshold is held.
