    No more than $500 these days. Used to keep more until my account got frozen and funds held for 6 months.

    First thing to learn about Gaypal: they don't need a reason. They usually just say your account is considered high risk or some bullshit like that.

    These days I only use PayPal to send not to receive. If I had my way I'd maintain a negative balance, simply to make up for the thousands of dollars and untold amounts of stress they have caused me over the last 6 years.

    They also will be making interest from the money in your account while frozen.

    And yet everyone keeps using it. My account was first frozen, then unfroze and limited, then banned. In all this time, I could not appeal or get a response. Depressing, to say the least.

    I think 200-300 is the most I'd ever keep in my PayPal. I really have a hard time trusting them.

    It's not that easy to just "leave" paypal, some programs only pay with that, and in general most people prefer to pay using it.

    I'm yet to be suspensed or anything, but i do hate the fees.
