Default Paypal now holding shipping money?

Just tried to print a shipping label on a newer account and it wont allow the shipping label to print.

Thought I was doing something wrong but now figured out they are holding all the funds including the shipping cost.

I have never ran into this before. Is this something new and has anyone had this problem recently?

No, that's pretty common it was like that a year ago, I usually just send like $20 or whatever from another paypal if I get that.

You can always just use a moneypak to, I never had a problem sending a small amount like that though.

You'd have to be pretty broke to worry about $20 getting held, I've still got dozens and dozens of giftcards laying around all over the place with $20 each on em.

Stamps.com, will cost you 16$ a month but if your moving high volume it is definitely worth it. Keeps tracking #'s all there and if you switch between user accounts you have access to all your printed labels.

so now we use moneypak to print labels and then once they get the product you call to get the hold released and withdraw faster than the speed of light.

Normally if you sell some low risk items first they won't place a hold then when you sell something a little more high risk they may place it but by then you can have plenty in there to cover shipping if you do it right.

Something is telling me we will all see 21 day holds on every account soon.

I see the writing on the wall, its coming I believe.

This item sold for 0.99 and the shipping was 6.25.

Amazing they want to hold an item, low risk at that for 0.99.

I normally don't get holds on non-vero items only after listing name brand items and even then it's still random.

On one account I got the hold after listing a name brand cell phone case that sold for .99 and on another account listed a name brand item that sold for over $1,000 and didn't get the hold.

Do this. I do it all the time. Refund them the shipping fee amount. Then invoice them for shipping through paypal. I just message them. People want ther products. They resend it.
