    Ok, so I listed a used textbook yesterday, and it sold right away.

    Problem: I need his $ first to order from the website and ship to him.

    Can this be done?

    (I am new to Amazon)

    I believe Amazon put's the money into checking account then you ship it out.Also check your amazon options.

    No it cant. It stays in Escrow limbo till the item is shipped out.

    your first order will be on hold for 14 business days. If you click on Sellers Account and then click on Payments then you'll see the next settlement date. Then you will be able to disemburse this into your checking which is an additional 5 business days. So I would suggest borrowing some money from someone to ship it. You'll get your money from Amazon one way or the other. It's guaranteed.

    I wouldn't quite say guaranteed. Just search online for Amazon holding funds and you will see lots of people's funds are tied back for a long period of time. But 95% of the time you will get your money after that initial waiting period. Note: waiting period only starts after you have sold first item (and i think that's after you "confirm" shipment). If you don't confirm that shipment, that 14 days may never start counting.

    Does the website take credit card? If so, you are in fact getting your free financing that way. If you have more than 1 credit card, look at the billing cycle for them all and find the one with the next billing cycle farthest from today. Be diligent in paying that balance off. If the place you are ordering from only accepts Paypal, in most cases you can pay by that via a credit card. Same deal.
