I'm building a ecommerce store. Own website. Own domain. No connection to eBay. I'm just running paypal as the processor until i switch to 2checkout or something else. I sold an item on eBay a few days ago and they held my funds until the 19th of this month. I searched around on here and alot of the older threads didn't answer my question. Does PayPal hold funds for purchases made on eBay only or for ANY purchases at their discretion (meaning normal e-commerce stores)? Example: If someone came to my site and bought, i dont know....a box of staplers. Could PayPal hold those funds for 21 days? That would REALLY REALLY suck if true.
