Default New PayPal Account Received "Money is Waiting on You"?

Ok so I opened a new PayPal account and attached it to eBay. The first sale went through fine, it had the standard PayPal hold and I shipped out and such uploaded tracking. The next two items sold the buyer sent payment, and when I login to PayPal it says "Money is waiting on You" "Claim It". When I click "Claim It" it takes me to another page and asks "What do I want to do with the money?"

The first option is "Transfer it to your Bank". The next is "Keep it in PayPal".

I had presumed "Keep it in PayPal" because its like $26.00? However when I click "Keep it in PayPal" it takes me to the next page that says Please confirm your info. Provide info that matches whatís on your legal ID so we can make sure youíre really you. This helps keep your account secure.

So...my question is? What do I do? It says if I skip confirming my ID on the next page it will allow me to keep the money in PayPal but I cannot send it anywhere? Like I cannot shop with it or anything, which I don't care about but I do care about paying eBay fees? Or paying for shipping costs on eBay?

Anyone have this come up before? What have you done and what is the outcome? I'm weary on clicking on one or the other just because if it keeps the money in the account and I cannot pay eBay fees or ship items, what good is it? Or if I transfer it all to a bank account I won't have any money to pay for shipping or fees in the first place?

Kind of at a conundrum here. All help is appreciated!

I heard about this recent issue with U.S. accounts. I can't much say about that. Other U.S. members will be able to help you soon.

I just tried to pay for shipping for the eBay item and it declined the payment. It said ďThere was an error processing your PayPal shipping PaymentĒ when I tried to print the $3.50 label...

Your should enter your date of birth and SSN info

If all the thing is correct, the money will be availible on your balance.

If your info is not correct, you will not be able to have any paypal balance and more than that, your account can be automatically limited and asked for ID-SSN-Utility Bill pictures

Yes this is how US PayPal accounts are becoming.

Theres lots of options to print out shipping. A lot of people on here use stamps.com. Some people also use ship station.

For paying fees, I have about 20 accounts currently giving me this Claim It nonsense and can pay my eBay fees from my PayPal balance on all of them. But some are reporting they cannot. I do not know why some accounts are able to and others are not.

I guess I can use my other account to print out shipping, either way though this is a huge pain.

I used a VBA and confirmed it prior to doing ANY sales as well and putting a credit card on there. This is something new for sure I have never experienced this before.

What did you do as far as accepting the payment and such?

Yes I confirmed it with my bank account. There is no way to confirm a credit card now, it doesnít seem to give that option.

These were also very low risk cheap $10.00 items.

What do you mean by accepting payments? The Claim It on my paypal doesnt prevent me from accepting payments

You could move here >>>

would it not be best to refund or cancel that last transaction, then you wouldn't need to buy shipping label to ship it because there's nothing to ship, make a one off payment for the fee's then start again on a new / different account?

Yes but you can still accept payments for sales on eBay, you just can't use the money from those sales to buy things online unless you confirm your info with your SSN. You can still withdraw to an attached bank account.

My question is more, if I keep the money in my PayPal account, can I use it to ship and pay eBay fees? If not then none of this is any good to me. I don't plan on using to it shop, and I don't mind transferring to a bank account, however I would still need to pay for shipping and eBay fees from that account.

Here is an update. The first item I shipped was delivered and the hold was "released". However, now that money is added to the amount that is "pending" and says "claim it"

None of this is working at all, it will not let me get around the verify your information part. I fear I am screwed with this account...
