Default 21 Day Holds have got to stop?

Hi Everyone,

I have a ebay account with a feedback of only 7,


My first sale was April 21st and i still have holds on every payment received its driving me crazy, never have no money because PayPal holds it all. not sure how much longer there gonna keep holding my funds. its past 90 days the hold should be gone for now

I am not sure if this is only for ebay, I may try selling on Bonanza and see if the holds are lifted.

and i may try and ask my buyers if they can leave 100% feedback.

If you cannot operate your business with these holds, might as well stop right now...

If your provide/upload tracking to eBay, your money is released within a couple of days after the tracking shows delivered to your customer.

Seem simple enough, right?

Now Paypal will reapply holds even after eBay lifts them when u fulfill the criteria.

Those are the minimum requirements.
There are no guarantees the holds will be removed once those conditions are met.

I have gotten so used to PayPal 21 day hold policy, I don't even notice it anymore. Just got to adjust your business model to this 21 day hold period. Besides, I would say the amount of money they hold is accurate in that it matches with customer complaints or returns.

While I don't like 21 day holds, it's better than the alternative.

Alternative = More scrutiny on new users

It's good you have your released. I would suggest have a couple backup PayPal accounts as well because you never know what PayPal is going to do next.

well my Paypal just got limited, just great, what do i do now?
not sure what caused it to get limited, it could have been because i kept placing orders with walmart and everytime walmart would cancel the order.

Dear Paypal User,

Your PayPal account has been limited because we've reviewed your account activity and as your payment processor, we need to better understand your business and the products or services you are providing to your customers.

What does this mean?

This account limitation will affect your ability to:

send money
withdraw money
Additionally, you cannot:
remove any bank accounts
remove credit cards
close your account
What to do next

Please log in to your PayPal account and visit the Resolution Center before September 16, 2016 to provide the requested information. If we don't receive this information before September 16, 2016 or we notice additional significant changes in your account activity, your account access may be further limited.

Once we receive and review your documentation, we will email you regarding the status of your account.



Log in to PayPal


We appreciate your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

PayPal
