    Paypal holds funds from ebay,not sure if that's the case with you but they DO hold money up until 21 days at the worst.

    Do you know how long it takes before you get out of the 'New Accounts'?


    And i know the link of the eBay customers support.
    But it is a stealth account so I don't want to contact them. I hope that somebody here could help me with this problem, before I contact them.

    Thats not a hold or anything that will be lifted...those are paypal fees and are separate from ebay. Paypal charges 2.9% plus a 30 cent flat fee for sellers.

    Your 3 sales total up to 40 cents while your flat fees accrued equal 90 cents so basically you are 50 cents in the hole with paypal. You simply cant make money selling items for such low prices.

    You also need to consider Ebay fees which is 10% final value fees and may include at least a 30 cent listing fee depending on how you list the the item. They usually give you up to 50 free listings for certain categories.

    So if your item sells for $1.00... paypal gets 33 cents for fees (30 cent flat rate plus 3%) , ebay gets 10 cents for 10% final value fees and maybe even 30 more if it doesnt qualify for a free listing. So you pay 43 to 73 cents in fees leaving you with either 57 or 27 cents.

    Paypal deducts fees automatically upon payment.... Ebay sends an invoice at the end of the month.

    The fees are just part of the game. If you dont pay your ebay invoice they ban your account and you have to start a new one every month and a half or so. Paypal takes theirs right off the top so nothing can be done there.

    You just have to price your stuff so you make a little profit after these guys stick it to ya.

    Good luck.

    They are holding your money because you are a new seller. If you meet their criteria to remove holds, they will be removed automatically. There is instances where certain sellers have met the requirements, but holds continue to persist.

    As said in my post above... This is not a hold and the funds will not be released. This is your fee for using Paypal as your payment processor and everyone has to pay them. 30 cents flat rate plus 3% taken immediately from the payment. No matter how much.

    This has nothing to do with Ebay, so contacting them is useless.

    Ebay and paypal does put a hold on any payments when you first start selling, but it is obvious that it is a hold... Not A Fee!

    I sell frequently on ebay so I am quite familiar with how it and paypal works... FEE's Suck.... but they are what they are.

    The next person that tells the OP that it is just a hold.... I'm gonna tell you that you are full of shit and don't know nothing about selling on Ebay.
