    ok so i recently sold an item through ebay and theres a 21 day hold for it!! is there anyway around this for example refunding the buyer and getting him to send the amount back directly through paypal instead of using ebay? as i dont want to send the item untill i receive the money

    Well I guess you will have to provide them with proofs and then just wait. Nothing else you can do. Search the forum and you will see how many people cant do anything about it.

    In general you can resolve the problem when you never use gaypal again and you will not have the problem at first place.

    Regards

    Wish there was a way around this, dont know. And i dont think the people who do know a way around this would even share because every time a work around is shared PP plugs the gaps fast .

    The only thing i would say is next time either buy a aged paypal that is past the 21 day hold period, or grow a PP account with a few good transactions and let it past the hold period.

    Get paid by "gift"

    Verify your account

    Virtual goods.

    Your hold is an ebay thing more than a paypal thing. You should know by now that getting someone to pay outside of ebay's system is so hardcore against their TOS that you'll be instantly permabanthammered.

    I beg you to find a different marketplace than ebay, for your business' sake and the sake of the rest of us trying to end ebay's quasi-monopoly

    Send the item.... make sure you input the tracking number on paypal and once it is marked 'received' on the tracking you will get the money in 2-3 days...

    I think if you are a trusted seller you do not have the 30 days hold-time. It is to prevent all the fraud that is going on ebay/paypal.

    All you can do is provide prompt shipping with tracking numbers, and butter up your customers so they leave positive feedback. Positive feedback, no claims and tracking numbers = reduced time. I have gotten them reduced a fair amount of the time.

    yeah i just went through this a week ago.

    if you provide the tracking information for the product you sold and input it into the money hold on paypal, it will automatically go down from 21 days to 3 days.
