Default 21 day hold on payment

I just opened a paypal stealth account and when I got paid through a invoice. Paypal is doing a 21 day hold on the payment. Because im a new seller. How can I get rid of this hold?

Ship fast and use Paypals tracking info.
The faster the item gets to the client, the sooner your funds will be released.
If it is an expensive item, I suggest you use Sig conformation on a CONFIRMED address only.

Isn't this just for ebay? The OP said it was a payment for an invoice.

Beat me to it!!

I sent and receive payments from invoices all the time. I don't remember that PayPal ever put a 21 day hold on any payment. I do, however, have a business account with an EIN associated with it. Do you have all your limits lifted? Is the account fully verified?

You need to verify your account and also if it is a business account and you HAVE NEVER gotten a payment before on it then your first will be held. if your paypal is older than 60 days then you will have no hold on it. You also need 5 sales at least. This is all on the paypal transaction layout when they hold the payment.

Thanks

It is a personal paypal account. I just have bank account verified. Probably if I add a card and do 5 transactions it will allow me to receive the money immediately through an invoice.

Does not matter.

paypal does holds for off ebay transactions too.


Many sellers tried using invoices as a workaround for the holds.

paypal is stopping that.

Same principles apply.

Ship fast, supply tracking, give great service.

Never underestimate paypal

That doesn't matter. The only reason they are doing this hold is because it is a new stealth paypal. Invoice Are suppose to br paid immediately.

Says who?

If paypal thinks the account is not up to their standards, they will do a hold.

That is for PP to determine the risk...it's pretty standard policy to apply holds on all transaction until your account is credible.

And what's credible to PP? Only they know for sure - good customer service and in time, holds should go

All new personal accounts get a hold on the first few payments, unless someone sends it to you as a gift. As far as having a new business account, they normally do not hold the payments if it's an invoice. If it's a money request they do, which they just started doing a few months ago.

I found a way to remove the hold. It says you that they need to call you to confirm your identity so you can input a confirmation code. Is there a way to get past this?
