Are you using money from sales? Perhaps a hold on it - post some screenshots exactly what you cant do. If you don't want to, just call up Paypal

Your account has been flagged as risky. I've had it happen a few times.

Send the money as a payment and pay the fee. As a general rule, it's alway's better to send payments than personal payments. Paypal likes making money so give them their little piece of the pie and they'll leave you alone for longer.

Re-read. It won't let him/her send the money as a payment, but will as a gift.

I've had this happen the other way round before. It's a bit strange they won't let you send the money as a payment, but will as a gift

Leave for 24 hours and this should be fine. I'm guessing you have just received the money through your paypal account?

My mistake, that is very strange, I've never seen such a thing before.

Soft hold on the account.

As the other member stated wait and re try.

I would wait 2-3 days myself.
