Default Money coming into Paypal - How much is safe?fe?


I have several items that have sold on my website which sells software (Adobe, Microsoft, ETC.) I've told the buyers I will send them invoices instead of purchasing direct from the website because they purchased multiple items and a discount needs to be applied.

Friday - sold $540.00 worth (payed for already through website)
Today - One sale of $966.00 and one of $542.00 (waiting on me to send invoice)

Is it safe to accept this much into a paypal account? It is about 3 years old however these are the first payments I have ever received on the account. All my information is valid and real.

Is it better to send the invoices from two separate accounts today?

Any advice is much appreciated.

I'm not sure, because I'm here with the same questions. I have had my paypal account since 2004 with real info, but I never received huge payments, just ranging between 10 to 200, and only got limited twice. Once because of reaching the receiving limit and once because I logged in in a different country, but both were resolved quickly.

Anyway, as I have gone back to selling on Ebay with this account, I wasn't sure how much I could receive, but the past month I had 3 big payments of $500+ without problems, withdrew them to my bank too.

Because your account is not used to having money coming in it might be a different story, however, you probably don't have to worry about being limited, BUT they might put your received payments to "pending" for a few weeks, in case a customer of yours might file a claim. I'm guessing you're pretty safe. (On Paypal that is, Ebay might be a completely different story, they limited me after my first item already, but after some nice ⊗⊗⊗⊗ ID and address documents they reinstated within a day.)
