Keep enough to cover a few refunds, IF you are prone to refunding people. If not, don't worry about it.

keeping enough money to cover a few refunds is a wise way to manage the account.

I do not want my stealth accounts to run into issues just because I cannot manage to refund a couple of customers. My accounts are valuable to me.

Everything you've ever earning, plus a couple grand...

Seriously, though, I leave enough to cover 2-3 times my highest average sale, I never want them dipping into my bank account to cover a shortage.

I sell around 2500k a month in items valuing 75-300. I keep 200-300 in available money. If paypal hold money from a sale as they sometimes do i don't include that in my 2-300 reserve
