    I have my own personal Ebay ive been using for many years but they still hold my cash 21 days for some reason. Apparently you need 25 sales adding up to at least 250$ to receive funds instantly. Is there any way I can get around this? I never really used it besides selling old books and stuff so I havent done this yet, but I want to start selling consistently.

    If you start selling consistently, just start doing it and you should get the limits lifted in no time. If you can't afford to have paypal holding funds for 21 days you are under financed.

    For some reason I'm only 10-15 sales in and they didn't withhold from my last sale at all .. could be because my PayPal account is old, but I think the holds are ebay (paypal says they are over the phone anyway)
    Still at 10/1000 limit on ebay though, fairly worthless
    I think it was almost right away they at least gave the money to me "3 days after confirmed delivery"

    The "rules" for lifting the 21 day hold are more like guidelines. Sometimes it is instantly removed, other times it takes over a year.

    are you sure? I think is less, otherwise he can contact support, or now you have a lot of services who will resolve this issues instead of you.

    Contacting support is very hit or miss. If you don't get the answer you want, keep trying. The rules seem to vary depending on who you talk to.

    support is very hesitant to remove this 21 day hold as its there to stop scammers, and will be removed by itself once paypal's system decides you are truthworthy enough. I would not trust anybody to login to my account to try and fix this.

    Funnily enough I have everything set up but my PayPal is being hesitant and now has holds instead. I am going to make a new one now instead.
