    So I did some research on Paypal's God-forsaken 21 day hold, and I found this:

    ebay-paypal-ripoff blogspot com/2008/10/paypal-payment-holding html

    Basically, it says all you have to do, when you get the money (on which Paypal has placed a hold), is refund a small amount back to the buyer, and Paypal will release your funds.

    I know it's from a year ago, but is this still true? Is anyone currently on hold, wanting to test this theory out for us?

    When your paypal is limited you can't see payment history.

    Blast.

    Well, does anyone else know of any loopholes?

    It'd be nice to be able to keep this thread going, in the sense that everyone at least wants a loophole.

    Thanks for your responses to my original, though.

    That makes sense.

    Well, I'm completely up for having this thread taken down. I can imagine how annoying it must be, now.

    Moderators? Take it away...:cool:

    Yes benvoliotw, it would be VERY good, to have some loopholes concerning payPal; those guys (or girls - who's the bosss of paypal? *except eBay*) have far too much power to be good (as google, ebay,microsoft etc). There IS a level, when "tracing loopholes" is legitim, I would say!

    "Paper-Boy" don't be so negative, there is always a retention time, especially with very BIG companies...

    "benvoliotw" ..haha. I bet they do if you ask a few times more. ;O)
