Default Pending Balance

What's the most you've had in a PP pending balance? I have about 300 and I'm wondering if I should back off and wait for some releases, or keep packing it in.....

'Pending balance' is only part of my criteria for 'touching' an account.

Bear in mind, I tend to be conservative and am known to wear a tin foil hat

'Packing it in' worries me. Can you risk being caught with all your moola living with paypal for an extended vacation

So back to my criteria:

What is still outstanding in funds receivable
Have I checked the 'buyers' carefully. (eg, nice feedback, account age etc. country of delivery).
What day of the week is it to consider a transfer? (Never thurs/fri because of the weekend)
How much balance can I leave to keep paypal happy...
So I have a formula like that.
With $300 already in, I'd be thinking of removing at least 2/3rds.

I work like that. A word of caution though . 'packing it in' might raise flags
Good Luck

I mean like, should I keep selling, which will make the pending balance even higher, or wait until some of the withheld funds are released.

I do a lot of international shipping, so it usually takes a while before I get my feedback (which I usually always do).
