    Hi guys,
    About a week ago Paypal stopped holding my money for 21 days, and I got the money right away.

    Today I was making 4 sales, the first 3 sales I got the money and it was available on my PP right away, the 4th sale I got again the 21 days hold =\

    What's going on? Anyone can help please ?

    Thanks

    no disputes and i have 96.9%.
    I had less when they let it off a week ago, I only have 1 bad feedback.
    And now the hold is back, W*F ?

    cant get around it.... only thing you can do is try to keep those disputes down, dont really know your entire situation but if
    A. you are drop shipping try to info the buyers of the shipping time in you listing..... Yeah the buyers still do not read but its an argue point when you are trying to dispute a claim
    B. it is a refund or exchange just give it to the whinny a%$ fu&^%rs its not worth the headache and negative feedback and/or disputes
    C. if possible check double check triple check the quality... anything to get those want something for nothing *&&^%% off you a%%...

    But the hold is there untill they say its not

    Hope this drunken stooper did not offend you

    I saw this on one of my accounts a few months ago. The account was a REAL account (not stealth) and about 6 years old ... zero disputes and 100% feedback. But it was a newer SELLER account... anyway I notice two things that caused the hold..
    1) Amount over $250 was held
    2) Or if I received over $1,000 in a day all other monies were held for 21 days.

    No biggie, just keep selling... as long as your have healthy profit margins having money held is not a big deal. When you are selling with $5 and $10 rips... well that is an issue.

    Hey guys thanks.
    The weird shit is that it holds only part of the money I'm receiving.
    Some I get right away, some it holds them. Weird But I don't care as long as everything is ok I guess.
    Thank you guys !

    hey this happened to me to, spoke with paypal they said its a normal auto procedure that might have a few resons:
    Negative feedback over 5%
    your selling average under 4.5
    less than 20 transactions with positive feedbacks
    buyers filed complaints
    selling high risk items

    if your good in all of these areas its no problem- and they will usually not hold your money for 21 days.
    also you can update tracking numbers on paypal that also might help.

    Sorry dude that was paypal response in email, not my own advice, obviously everyone has different reasons for paypal limiting accounts.
    Most of the time no legitimate reason.
