Just wondering if anyone could help me out please. I have just sold an item on ebay and they buyer paid instantly via paypal and is sending a family member to collect the item however the paypal transaction has the following notice on:
The money from the payment you received is being held temporarily for up to 21 days. During this time the money will show as pending and you won't be able to access it.
Your funds will be released after 21 days, providing your buyer hasn't reported any problems. We may be able to release the money sooner if we can confirm that the item was delivered or, if this is an eBay item, your buyer leaves you positive feedback.
To help speed up the process, please take the following steps:
1.Check below to see if this transaction is eligible for seller protection. For more information, see our tips on how to sell securely
2.Send to the buyer's address as stated on this page
3.If your item is over £150 please use a postage service which offers signature confirmation
4.Save all proof of postage, and email tracking information to your buyer
Im really concerned about handing over the item without having the money. What do you think?
