    When you get money on paypal they place a 21 day hold on your money. Has anyone found a way around this hold thing yet? :confused:

    I desperately need to find a workaround :(

    this only happens to me on ebay sometimes and it usually goes away when i add tracking info or a few days after positive feedback

    Yes, the account is legit...the money was from eGay sales

    To: BBBBB
    Now that you mention it...I think you are right...I believe they do say that you have to provide a tracking number or positive response to get the money.

    Has any body done this and it move the hold?

    This sounds like an ebay specific issue, not just paypal. i've never had holds on paypal funds, but i've never sold anything on ebay..

    There are various ways you can do this i believe
    First of all, paypal holds the funds but it is only when you do ebay sales. The reason they do this is
    1. high risk items for sale (electronics etc.)
    2. Low feedback
    3. High money items

    To get around it, either post tracking # and get it 3 days later, get ebay feedback ASAP, or another way i heard is to do a 1 cent refund. A way ive done it before is have the buyer open a dispute and close it, you wil get your money ASAP.
