Default Have I been flagged?

For the last 12 months I've only ever had 2hr withdrawals from my PayPal but for the last 5 days, they have all been 72hours?

I only withdraw once per day approx 50-100 apart from about a month ago when I withdrew 280.

Perhaps I'm being paranoid? Perhaps I've done something to upset PayPal?

It is normal for withdrawals in the UK to be either 2 , 24 or 72 hours. If you have just had 2 hrs up to now you have been very fortunate. Nothing to worry about at all.

Relax and hit this L to calm your nerves. Completely normal for this to happen. I follow the same method of only withdrawing once a day or when the last withdrawal shows completed and not pending.

You haven't been flagged flagged... Probably their internal security payment just stopping or delaying your withdraws.

You are being paranoid OP - so what if it takes 72 hours - just let it come through.

That being said, it's NEVER a bad idea to get backups going - never rely only on one account

Always have a backup account. Or two. Or six. Spreading your sales over multiple accounts means they can only shut down a small portion of your business at one time (unless they are able to link all of the accounts, but then you aren't doing it right).

It makes ME sleep well at night!

This and what rsot said.

Critical point is this:
"they can only shut down a small portion of your business at one time"

The more accounts you have, the more stable is you business in general. Eggs and baskets.

I recently had an account that I take out about 1600-2500 a month that went from 2 hour wait, to 72 hour wait and then suddenly a 90 payment got held for 21 days. It felt weird at first, as I thought the account is at risk, but then I had another 6 sale that day around same amount and everything became available instantly and withdrawl timer went back to 2 hours.

Sometimes.... Things just happen I guess.
