    Hello Everyone,

    I just got my main account suspended on Ebay for some reason :rolleyes:. This sucks because it's a 5 year old account . I'm planning on seeing if I can get the account restored, but in the meantime I'm moving on. I'm going to be purchasing a new established ebay and paypal account, rather then making one, and was wondering if you'll know of anyway to get around that 21 day fund hold that ebay is famous for?

    Thanks for any help :p

    Wow...my old seller account just paid directly to my paypal. It was only recently that I learn that most people had a hold on their funds. I'm needing to make up for the cashflow this setback is costing me, so any help would be appreciated :p

    That's really it? Just plus 10 feedback and you are cool?

    Nope. You need at least 90 days and or 50+ transactions. There is no such thing as 21 day holds much anymore. I get my fund released usually 3-4 days after the item is delivered. If you ship quick the turnaround might be 10 days at the most. It is not 10 feedback. Some get lucky and get some items with no holds but has nothing to do with 10 feedbacks.

    After spending 45mins on hold with their support people, I don't get the holds nearly as much.

    Okay, so I would need an account with plus 50 transactions. Would these transactions have to be as a seller?

    You will have to start selling things to get positive selling feedback like someone said when you get 10 positive feedback your account will probably be off hold. Also make sure your paypal account is verified and hooked up to your bank account as this could speed it up too. Make sure you put tracking on all your shipments!

    I keep seeing this come up a lot to sell to the buyer outside of Ebay, however I just checked, and Ebay said that is against their policies to sell outside of eBay. However, I guess because this a black hat forum... we dare to live a little bit on the edge!

    Yeah I'm pretty sure this will "eventually" get your account suspended. I think the way you could get around this is by having both as an option. If my years on ebay have shown me anything, it's that they are ruthless about their profit.

    I was going to suggest this as well. Sell through paypal, but also offer to pay outside of ebay. Maybe even give the buyer a few dollars off their order to entice them to buy outside of ebay.

    Use PayPal's Shipping Label option, pay for shipping the day the payment is received and pester your buyers to give you positive feedback quickly.

    Selling on ebay.fr is another option as well.

    No hold from what I can tell.
