Hello fellas, I am using my PP business account to receive payments for years now, recently I started accepting sale payments instead of f&f and I am reaching my monthly hold on Paypal: The message is it like that:

"PayPal is withholding (for 21 days) any money above X.XXX EUR in sales each month based on your current sales performance.
Request an increase in the amount available each
"

The question: Can requesting an increase make your account limited or triggering document request?
I do not want to request an increase for now, I have submitted documents before but I don't want to trigger account limitation.
I will keep playing it safe. Because paypal it's very unexpected, I am not into ebay, I use another ecommerce platform.


Thanks in advance for any answers. :)


ps : Google tells me this but I don't trust it anyway
"
Sometimes, PayPal will put funds on hold for up to 21 days to ensure there is enough money in your account should any issues arise with the order. There are several reasons why a payment may be on hold, and ways for sellers to expedite the release of funds."

If you don't mind your funds being hold for that period just keep on doing what you do.
At some point, if you show a respectable behavior, this limit will be lifted.

At a certain point in time if you receive more money they will ask for your documents. Do you have a business account activated? What is your purpose code ? you can ask sender to confirm receipt.

Let's hope this limit get lifted without my requesting higher limit.

I had submitted documents before, but that was long time ago. I will try to play it safe for now as I don't mind getting them on hold.


Thank you for your help fellas.
