I have been experimenting with dropshipping and paypal just gave me a temorary hold on a few things. What steps can I take to decrease my fraud risk when accepting payments? Watch for address inconsistencies. Although it's fairly common for a shipping address to be different than a billing address, this could be a fraud indicator. For example, a high priced item that has a billing address in one country and a shipping address in another may be suspicious. this is whats comes up when I go into the claim Beware of unusual buyer requests. Unusual requests should put you on alert to suspicious activity. For example, buyers who: * Want a rush shipment at any cost * Send partial payments from different PayPal accounts * Do not make their payment in full What is a temporary hold? While a transaction is being investigated, the funds associated with it may be temporarily held. This means that they are not eligible for withdrawal until the investigation is closed.
