    Does the 21 day rule only apply to ebay transactions? What if I sold something on my website for over $100 would paypal hold my funds?

    You're good to go. To be safe, be sure that you upgrade to a business account.

    Either way, your payments will be instant :)

    No Sir.

    The hold only applies if you sold on eBay. :)

    not sure this is the case anymore - PPs TOS now states they will hold any payments for 21 days (ebay or not) if they deem the account or 'transaction' to be high risk.

    the hold will be in effect for 21 days (with no dispute) or the funds will be released earlier if paypal can confirm shipment/receipt and IF THE TRANSACTION was an ebay transaction, funds will be released after positive feedback left (but only for ebay transactions)

    I'm selling on ebay. I have 2 items totalling more than $12,000. I refuse to ship these items without knowing that I'm getting my money. I'll just have to take negative feedback and lose my ebay account if it comes to it.

    I can not afford to ship these items and then have a buyer complain if he or she does not like the item....they'll get to keep the product and paypal will not give me my money.

    I don't think this rule is fair to sellers. They should implement a rule that states that the buyer will not be refunded until he/she proves that they returned the item.

    ebay or paypal dont give a fuck. your best method is to refund the customer, after they have paid via eBay checkout then send them an email stating that you made a mistake and refunded them, send them a seperate Paypal bill with no mention of eBay and when they pay (if they pay some ebayers are brainwashed pussies) your funds should not be on hold, transfer the funds into your account ammediately, when it lands switch the funds to another account that feepay or gaybay cant access. Ship the buyer his item's if they don't like it tell them to send it back and if they don't and files a complaint with paypal just send a friendly email to paypal telling them to go fuck thereself or play fair.

    you can end up burning through paypal and ebay accounts this way but it keeps yourself protected, especially when dealing with high dollar items. You can create a new ebay and paypal account for about 20 bucks. If paypal keeps your 6k your shit out of luck unless you take them to court and spend more money.
