    Hey guys... i have one question. If anybody knows maybe..

    So..besides my IM work..i also have music label...so i had plan to start pre sales of our new designed shirts.
    why pre sales? its because i want to raise money to be able to buy and print shirts blah blah, kinda short with cash at the moment.
    I was thinking to set up pre sales on our website and ship out shirts by June.1st

    So..i did lil research and i cant find any answer, will i face any limitations on my paypal account if i dont ship out goods after people pay me?
    I have verified US paypal...

    I just dont want to get my funds on hold because i accepted payments and i didnt ship out the goods within week or so.

    Did any of you guys did pre sales through paypal before? if so.. how it works?

    Thanks fellas.. :)

    Cheers

    As long as you stipulate to the buyer before purchasing any of your products "Product ships out by June.1st" you should be fine.

    PayPal is kinda funny though, so I can not guarantee that your funds won't be held. You just need decent buyers that aren't jerks trying to scam you.

    Best of luck with sales OP!

    Im pretty much sure none of buyers would have problem with it..they asked for it..and i know most of them.
    So...that part is ok...but im worried if PP see that i lets say..get 20 payments and i still didnt ship out merch...im worried to get limited.
    idk...

    Thanks pal!

    Have another spare account setup & verified incase you have any issues.

    If more than one of your customers files a complaint, then you could end up with a restricted account regardless of the terms about the shipping. However, if you shipped the goods out within a month I should think you would be fine.

    As Panther said, I would always keep a spare verified paypal account for these sorts of things.
