Default Tricky 21 day hold removal question

Hi all.

I'm fairly familiar with paypal removing the 21 day limit and when I can expect it. Toady I logged into one of my newer accounts (aged month in a half) to print a shipping label. The strange thing was the transaction was placed in completed section and said "were waiting for the bank to clear the purchase to remove the hold".

When I click on estimated availability of funds its as if I still have the 21 day hold. I know it could be a glitch, which I guess at this point I'm assuming it is.

Anybody heard/seen this happen?

It sounds like they are reviewing your buyers payment and that,is what is on hold, sometimes they will do this with buyers and you will get an email later saying it went through or was rejected

But as for the paypal hold it will still be applied until usually after 90 days of selling activity with 25 Feedbacks and $250

And can be re-applied if paypal is not happy with the behavior of the account.

Ok. This was a new one for me so thanks for the responses. Would you recommend shipping it then? I would have already shipped it (usually ship same day), this account (silly me) doesn't have funds in the account for shipping/fees. Before you guys say it, I know ...It was a accident on my part.

If its pending a paypal review, makes me wonder if I should ship if they could reject payment and reverse transaction?

What type of shipping turn around do you have listed?

Could your buyer be hanging expecting quick delivery & thus ding your account if nothing happens?

More importantly, what's the value of the item

1 day shipping. I already messaged them saying I'm sorry for not shipping today but will get it out first thing tomorrow. Typing that already makes me assume it could cause a issue if I don't.

On top of that I live in the same city as the person who bought it. I wish I could just delivery it myself but of course without tracking we all know what can happen.

The value is 40$. I realize thats not a lot of money but its 40$, I don't like wasting money unless I have to, you know?

I'll probably just ship and hope for the best. I provide top notch customer service so unless the person buying has no pulse or simply had scamming in his/her mindset from the start, it should hopefully work itself out...

Thanks for the help...

If you are purchasing your postage on eBay than if there is a review on buyers funds, an echeck not cleared or non payment, than the system will not allow you to print postage

So if you were able to print the postage out hitting the button next to the sold item than its probably something different and the funds are there and may just be on hold from you,

Well for starters I suppose I can't ship tomorrow regardless because of Veterans Day.

I couldn't pay for it via eBay because they kept asking me to add a credit card to purchase the shipping label? I assume this is because I don't have enough funds in my paypal account but usually when this happens a echeck gets processed. Luckily that didn't happen as I learned a hard lesson from that a while back.

I really have no idea at this point. It does say payment is under review... which may verify what you said earlier about the buyers account under review? Does this mean the buyer purchase my product got limited ?

To elaborate its under completed with *under review* in italics ...

Add a gift card for a credit card and than after the first postage you will be able to purchase postage for your items from held funds

When funds get released postage is paid if u have a cc attached

Yes, I have that same thing happen about 5 or 6 times a year on random account on random items...I have noticed no pattern in it...so maybe it's something on the buyers end that makes it kick in....So far, I've never had any bad consequences.....they review and in 24-72 hours, they have released it.

Not really much else you can do - unless you can convince buyer to pay outside of PP....

If this is on the buyers end like a payment review or echeck not cleared like Dmshark said you should have a message on your account stating the buyers payment is under review. The payment notification email from PayPal will also tell you not to shop until the funds clear. Look carefully on the details of this transaction. We get these on a buyers payment once in awhile.

Not sure what is up with my Paypal account to be honest. It still shows "under review" in italics.. still shows in "completed" section. I already shipped it out, only time well tell.

I guess my next sale will kinda prove weather or not I got the 21 day hold removed.
