    I got this after a payment was received


    NOTICE OF PAYMENT RECEIVED - PLEASE SHIP ITEM

    Dear ,


    You've received a payment, detailed below. We?ve placed a temporary hold on the funds for this transaction.

    PayPal and eBay are working together to make payments for eBay items even safer. Because we want both buyers and sellers to feel confident about sending and receiving payments through PayPal, we may temporarily hold payments for items sold on eBay.

    Make sure to ship the item right away, so you'll have access to the funds sooner. We?ll release the hold in 21 days unless you receive a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal on the transaction subject to the hold. We may release the hold earlier if either of the following occurs:

    The buyer leaves you positive feedback on eBay.
    We confirm that the item was delivered.* We can confirm delivery if you ship the item with USPS, FedEx, or UPS and either use PayPal shipping labels or upload tracking information from the transaction details page. This applies to transactions within the United States.
    Additional hold period

    If you receive a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal on the transaction subject to the hold, we may hold the payment until the problem is resolved.

    Learn more about the PayPal policy for payment holds for eBay items.

    We will notify you by email when the funds are released. You can monitor the status of the hold in your Transaction History.

    * This applies to US domestic transactions that are shipped by USPS, FedEx, or UPS and either (i) use PayPal shipping labels to ship items or (ii) provide tracking information to PayPal.

    wow ^^
    I've recently had the case that one of my customers (Cloakfish) used Cloakfish to pay through paypal.
    Result: paypal saw the completely different IP and suspended the payment

    I asked paypal to give me information about the case so I can talk to my customer and explain the situation.
    Now nearly one week passed and paypal ignored both of my mails.
    The amount is still on hold.

    I hope they become more professional in the future as I see no other choices for international stuff.

    This is there 21 hold policy implemented a few months ago...but make sure its not a spoof the wording is a little off in this message, also get a real merchant account for your business and send invoices yourself.

    anyway the buyer had called paypal and said that ebay requested the hold and that it was on my end is why they placed a hold on the funds

    Same thing is happening to me. Paypusssy is holding $1200 from me. The idiots have limited my account 2 time in the last 6 months and they keep asking for me to submit the same info. The worst part is that they don't respond to emails, they just send you an auto responder message.

    Yeah, that's what they told me to do too. I would have except I was selling MS products, and they canceled my listings. So, technically the transaction didn't happen and the buyers couldn't leave feedback. Now I have to wait 21 days to get my money and had to purchase and ship the products out of pocket. Then when I tried to withdraw some of the money that wasn't subject to any holds, then limited my account. It's like a pack of monkeys are running this thing...

    I think I'm going to stop using paypussy for egay and just use my own merchant account to accept payments.
