Default Can Paypal hold money that was sent from another paypal account?

Hi everyone! I have a quick question.

I've sold some things to a friend a few states away, then made a paypal account so i could get the money.

Then, today i noticed this on the top of my pp account.. "From now on, money you receive will be temporarily held in a pending balance. To learn more, please read our"

Well my friend is going to send the money in a day or two and my question is, since the transaction was not through ebay, and hes just going to send the money from his paypal account to mine, will that money still be held or will i not be able to send it to my bank account?

Thanks for looking~

Paypal will hold funds for anything.

Been discussed a lot recently.

Nowdays even 'off' ebay transactions are subjected to holds.

Simpky, paypal is getting much stricter with account holders

Welcome to the forums - All the best as you read around. PP likely placed a hold due to repeat activity that was suspicious.

Nice new word GB - SIMPKY!

It's actually a different issue from this thread.

Suggest a thread in the UK paypal subforum.

Different criteria apply for the holds

Sit down. Take a deep breath. Even that is slowly starting to change.

As you can imagine, I keep notes on all of this to keep up with paypal.


Been advised of 8 different OFF ebay transactions where the funds were
held. All started in mid-November
