Default $3.99 SERIOUSLY!!! funds held

So i sell an item on feebay mainly for more feedback. With a buy it now price of 3.99 and free shipping. PayPal puts a 21 day hold on it.

SERIOUSLY!! i was planning on shipping it via snail mail because it's such a small and cheap item. But now i have to either ship it with a signature requirement or send it via snail mail, hope the buyer leaves feedback, and or wait 21 days for $3.99.

I say just ship it with snail mail man. I mean if you dont need the money (you said you were just doing it for feedback anyway) then ship it and put a not in there asking the guy to leave you a positive feedback.

If the item you are selling is only $3.99 does it really matter when you get the money??

Sh#t For $0.30, buyers better be giving me feedback before I even ship. At that point my feedbacks more valuable than the item itself.

Selling feedback will get your Ebay account shut down pretty quickly

If you are concerned about building up feedback quickly, I'd ship the item right away using the Paypal/USPS link you can use for sending anything (since the payment hasn't cleared). Make sure you insert the tracking into your "My Ebay" account. This will make sure you get the DSR you deserve for "free shipping". Just my 2 cents.

You can last for some time but sooner or later, yes the block stick will appear.
