    I've noticed that every PayPal withdrawal is taking 3-4 days now to get to my bank?

    Used to be minutes. This is payments from varied sources.

    Quite annoying

    I called. It's because I use 3G and 4g dongles and my IP changes all the time and it's flagged some fraud thing

    I've actually noticed some changes in paypal recently.

    A partner of mine had the same problem for the same reason (when calling they were told Paypal will allow the transaction this time but to register a new paypal if they are using it in a different country), then a day later (on totally different IP) I had to submit my documents for review for my account.

    I don't know if they are changing some policies or having some problems but I hadn't had such problems until the last few months.

    I'm sure it is fine with nothing to worry about, but it does slightly remind me of other online payment systems before they started to fall into financial problems where they delay withdrawals while they try to keep up with a backlog or lack of funds.

    (I've lost about $2K from 3 online paying systems going bust or getting injunctions in the past from not spotting the signs)

    As I said I doubt PayPal are in trouble but it totally reminds me to never leave a large amount of money in places like this for long, even if they are solid put your money into much safer places, people forget PayPal and online payment systems are not banks, but they trust and treat them as if they were, they are not secured for financial difficulties like banks and don't have the same strict regulations.

    Just something to think about.

    mostly almost instant but occasionally it does. Not many things piss me off as much as that
