    Hello guys,

    I start selling on ebay before 3 days. My feedback is 0.:p And i sold my first item yesterday.
    After buyer pay for the item, money was come to my paypal account. ($44) . But Paypal was not held that money. They release money instantly. :)
    But today I'm also sold an item. It's price $33. Now paypal hold that money for 21 days.

    My question is why paypal not held my first sale money ? Is that normal ?

    Thanks.

    No, its not normal. Maybe they linked it to older accunt?
    After 90 days from your first successful sale, you will no longer be considered a new seller on eBay, and your PayPal payments will no longer be subject to new seller holds.

    Well, paypal sometimes does strange things.
    E.g. my account is 7 years old and so normally I do not have any holds at all.
    BUT: I sold a dvd for about $10 or so, money was held. I contacted ebay and they said it is due to the BUYER (!), it is a new buyer account with 0 feedback and "unconfirmed" (not sure what they mean). So after tracking has shown "delivered" they released the payment *lol*
    But they said it is due to the buyer because also his paypal account is new and unconfirmed so there would be a risk that the money would be "disputed" or that the account is fake etc.

    Sometimes they hold it to make sure that the buyer is legit. I once sold a $500 camera and they held the funds for a few days.
