Paypal - payment 'On hold - post now'

Just sold an item of ebay and paypal has sent me details of the payment - with the above attached to it. I've never seen this before.

Is it ok to send the item based on the fact that payment protection is eligible?

how much was it for?

more than a tenner,then not worth the risk imo
#2
Thats weird....I wouldnt post if the payment was on hold
#3
This is perfectly ok. Payapl hold the money for 21 days or until the seller leaves a positive.
#4
this is common now im pretty sure, positive feedback should release it so you need to send
#6
I had this the other year over a mobile phone and it was a scam, the email I received also had a link the contained a virus, be care full.

refund a penny and the payment hold will be removed.

Bare in mind that

1) This is against paypals rules (apparently, maybe, probably)
2) tinks will reply here soon and advise you not to do it.

I've done it a few times without problems, but others reckon paypal have locked their accounts etc.

Still, if you'd rather have the money in your bank, get it done, get it withdrawn, then it doesnt matter if paypal lock your account :)

Your call though.

Thanks all - never seen it before - I guess all is good to go - everything ties up with the ebay and paypal accounts.

Cheers.

I guess it makes sense - the item was sold for £120 and I have less than 100 feedback.

Payment Holds for eBay Items

eBay and PayPal are working together to improve the buyer experience and to make the eBay marketplace even safer. We may hold some payments to make sure transactions are completed smoothly. See terms

* What is a payment hold for an eBay item?
* When will PayPal release the payment hold for an eBay item?
* Why would PayPal hold one of my payments?
* How can I avoid receiving an eBay item hold?
* I’m a new seller. Will payments I receive be held?

What is a payment hold for an eBay item?

It’s when PayPal temporarily holds a payment you receive for an item you sold on eBay. The amounts held will appear as Pending in your PayPal account until we release the funds. You still have access to all other funds in your PayPal account.
When will PayPal release the payment hold for an eBay item?

Your funds will be released after 21 days. We may release funds earlier when one of the following occurs:

* The buyer leaves you positive feedback on eBay
* 3 days pass after we confirm the item was delivered*

If you receive a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal on the transaction subject to the eBay item hold, we may hold the payment until the problem is resolved, even if the claim, chargeback, or reversal occurs after the hold is released.
Why would PayPal hold one of my payments?

To increase marketplace safety, we may hold payments that seem risky. Here are some common reasons for holding payments:

* You have been an eBay member for less than 6 months, and you sell an item for more than $100, or
* You have an eBay feedback score of less than 100, and you sell an item for more than $100, or
* You have a Buyer dissatisfaction percentage** 5% or greater than 5%, or
* You have an average Detailed Seller Rating (DSR) of less than 4.5, or
* You have received fewer than 20 Detailed Seller Ratings in the last 12 months, or
* You are listing your item in a high-risk category such as gift certificates, video games, cell phones, computers or consumer electronics.

PayPal doesn’t hold payments for eBay items if you meet the following:

* You have been an eBay member for 6-months or more, and
* Your total Feedback score is 100 or greater, and
* Your Buyer dissatisfaction percentage** is less than 5%.

Or

* Your average DSR is 4.5 or greater and
* Your have received 20 or more DSRs in the last 12-months
* Your buyer dissatisfaction percentage is less than 5%

How can I avoid receiving an eBay item hold?

Here are some things you can do:

* Improve your DSR feedback rating
* Follow the PayPal best practices to reduce buyer disputes, claims and chargebacks
* Resolve all disputes, claims, and chargebacks quickly

I’m a new seller. Will payments I receive be held?

If you are a seller with an eBay feedback score lower than 100, but you have a record of good performance, you’ll receive payments instantly in most cases.

Thats a different thing,thats a scammer who sends those emails pretending they are from paypal,

You just need to sign into your papal account and check if the payment actually exists

so for 21days paypal are receiving interest on YOUR funds. Also you send the item the buyer decides he/she is not happy and now you're in a whole other loop. I have refunded funds on sales because of this. I refuse to send out anything that has not yet been paid for. Try doing this in a shop and see how far it gets you. The whole point of using paypal is that both buyer/seller are protected via their protection scheme, but now they want the seller to provide that 'scheme'. If a buyer is not happy with the goods there is already in existence a perfectly good way to raise a dispute in paypal. I have been both a buyer and seller on fleabay for many years and it has always been a hassle dealing with them and for those who have not had any problems, wait till you do and you'll see what i mean.
