    I guess they changed their rule. fucking gaypal.

    my mom wanted me to sell something for her on ebay.

    so i did, and it was sold. and i sent it with parcel postal which takes normally about a week.

    and paypal says, that the hold will be released after buyer gets the item, and leaves a positive feedback.

    how gay is this?

    Which rock did you just crawl from under? Gaypal sucks and have for years. One idea mentioned here on the forum is to refund a small amount then you are able to access the funds, but I haven't tried it. Give it a try and it may work.

    I know gaypal was the gayest payment processor in the whole universe.

    but i didn't know they would hold your funds after your item gets sold.

    anyone cares to tell me how to release the fund right away? :(

    I believe that refund method was targeted towards this biz.

    He sold fake ipods, and so he partial refunded the dude $1 saying hes a great customer etc... and egay released his payment.
