    Right,

    I've been selling on ebay quite a lot recently on different accounts, I've encountered the 21 day hold a lot of times if I receive a payment through ebay..so in order to avoid it I've been sending my customers invoices to their paypal accounts, it's all been working well but today on 2 different paypal accounts I send invoices out..the invoices were paid but now I've noticed I get a 21 day hold for 'selling on paypal'...so there really is no way around it any more is there? Or was I just unlucky and are 21 day holds on Paypal uncommon.


    Should I create some paypal accounts, receive small payments and then use them in 21 days? :s

    Are you creating stealth accounts? And does it matter what country the PayPal accounts are? The only way to get around the 21 day hold with a new account is by creating a French PayPal account.

    I don't understand, how does a french account manage to get around the 21 day hold?

    Don't hold me to this but I've heard that for some reason in France it's against the law for them to have a 21 day hold on the accounts. I'm pretty sure no French account has a 21 day hold on it.

    Im sure Paypal is already on to this. only way to bypass 21 day hol d is to get your feedback up. sfter a month it should go away. They also do this to discourage dropshipping
