    I'm quite confused.

    On my two previous ebay accounts which had no feedback and were one day old which were linked to unverified paypal accounts I had managed to make sales and the money was sent to my paypal balance with no hold.

    But on my new account I've made, I verified it by linking my bank..I used an ebay account with is more than 90 days old and has some positive feedback made a few sales, i sold the same stuff that i've sold previously on my unverified accounts..but the money has been put on a 21 day hold?!

    Is it a new update and that every sale gets held? or am i just one of the unlucky people. this has NEVER ever happened to me before.

    I heard it's more of a random process due to their algorithm so your recent account is the unlucky fella'.

    I've decided to refund the customers and tell them that I can only receive direct payments to my bank.
    Paypal piss me off

    21 day hold is removed when the tracking number is provided for 3 days.

    Its a standard thing, I dont know how did you managed to get it immediately with old 2 accounts. How long ago was that?

    Around 2 weeks ago. both weren't even verified. I'd just send the money to a verified account.

    Oh, so you just created 2 new Ebay stealth accounts and send to old PayPal(Real) account that was already used with eBay in the past and already passed 21days limit. If so, you just successfully linked your accounts. Be careful.
