Default PayPal will start holding funds for 21 days

Quote:
Occasional holds on payment
27. Which sellers will have their payments held?
In a small percentage of cases where it has been determined the risk of dissatisfied buyers is higher, PayPal may delay release of the payment funds to the seller until the buyer has left a positive feedback or 21 days have passed without a dispute, claim, chargeback or reversal filed on that transaction.

To determine if a transaction may have a higher risk of dissatisfied buyers, eBay reports to PayPal a number of factors, including but not limited to:

* Seller's % Positive Feedback in the last 30 days
* Seller's Detailed Seller Ratings in the last 30 days
* Final price for the item
* Shipping & handling fee
* Seller's eBay tenure as an eBay member
* Seller's total number of Feedback

28. How will I know that my payment is being held?
Payments that are held will be shown as "pending" in your PayPal balance. PayPal will send an email notifying you when the hold is released. PayPal Money Market Fund customers will continue to receive income for amounts that are being held in your account.

More here:
Fees 2008 Rewards FAQ
Am I reading this right? PayPal will hold payments if you don't have at least 100 positive feedback and meet half a dozen other requirements? And they call it a "small percentage of cases"? I'd say about 95% of eBay sellers have less than 100 feedback! That's not a "small percentage".

We all know here they will make up any excuse to hold the money and earn interest on it until it is RELEASED. They are going to loose alot of business behind these moves.

Not all such payments, just less than 5% of such transactions.

Sorry, I've checked there is
"fewer than 5% of all payments on eBay"

Anyway,
Fees 2008 Rewards FAQ
ebay will check other sides to make a decision...such as
* Seller's % Positive Feedback in the last 30 days
* Seller's Detailed Seller Ratings in the last 30 days
* Final price for the item
* Shipping & handling fee
* Seller's eBay tenure as an eBay member
* Seller's total number of Feedback

I guess it is not madatory, not every transaction will be held!
even if you don't meet all the following requirements:
* eBay Tenure: Greater than 6-months
* Total Feedback score: More than 100
* Dissatisfied Buyers %: Less than 5%
Or if you don't meet all the following requirements: Detailed Seller Rating: Greater than 4.5 And Total Detailed Seller Ratings Recieved: More than 20 in the last 12-months.

It will be hell for everyone with a new account, in any case. And I guess that covers most people here.

Paypal is about to SCAM a whole lot of sellers...I can see it now, you have sold 30 items and shipped all your products in hopes that your funds will be released then paypal emails you.."sorry we can verify your identity and your funds will be on hold for 180 days" Sorry

I don't know if EB and PP did anything as a direct result of anything discussed here, but I do agree with CH in that some things are better not discussed in detail in the public areas and even via PM make sure that you know who you are talking too.

I told aspkin to track IPs reading this forum and block anything related to ebay or that has ebay in the reverse DNS. I guess he didn't.

Let me tell you a funny story (and I am in NO WAY worried)..
I have 14 Paypal accounts, Ive gotinfo can Verify this, as he has networked with me on some things..
-- I had a call missed this morning, i have it in my cell as "paypal holds", its 1-800-830-8574
I have all 14 transferred to my cell, so i didnt really know which acct they were calling about??
-- here i am driving around, flipping though my card file box,,guys beeping behind me, cause Im moving too slow for them..
Turns out--BESIDES Paypal atm card holds, Chevy chase also uses them, to check on your useage...I just bought my kids a new pc on hsn.. they were just verifying it was me..
So- i was panic for nothing..

I don't believe ebay would bother with proxies. Proxies that you enter into your browser settings take work and are slow and may be slightly illegal at least for a company. The fast ones all leak your real IP address in the headers which aspkin can block. Also the web anonymizer sites can just be blocked, too.

Tor which is totally anonymous is extremely slow like crazy and there's methods to look up any Tor node to see if it is Tor.
