i think it awaits confirmation of receipt by the buyer...

scam prevention measure!

This can take up to a week. It is like a cheque payment. Do not send the goods until cleared.

If its an E-Cheque then you should wait until its cleared?

We're holding the funds for 1 payment that you've received for items sold on eBay.

The total amount on hold in your account is: £122.96 GBP

PayPal and eBay are working together to make it safer than ever to buy on eBay. One of the boldest steps is to identify transactions that pose the greatest risk of fraud and holding the payments from sellers for a period of time to help ensure that the transactions go smoothly.

To get access to the funds sooner, please post the item as soon as possible. We'll release the payment for the eBay item when one of the following occurs:

The buyer leaves you positive feedback on eBay.
It's been 21 days since the payment date and you haven't received a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal on the transaction being

If you cheque your payment page it should give you an estimated clearance date, can take between 7-10 days

Please post the item right away. We'll release the funds when one of the following occurs:
you receive positive feedback from the buyer
it's been 21 days since the payment date and you haven't received a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal on the transaction being held

Payment Type:
Instant

You shoulda let the payment clear before sending the goods, I think the buyer has so many days to claim the money back and theres nothing you can do about it.

I've heard of this happening before, a friend of mine told me about a woman in his work who bought tickets for some show, they paid by paypal, she went to meet the person to hand over the tickets, by the time she got back to her home the paypal payment had been retracted and she was left neg feedback.

Hope this works out for you though.

Do as I said above, paypal say it should take 24 hours but they are so … Do as I said above, paypal say it should take 24 hours but they are so slow, it's not always instant so chase it.This person has a payment on hold and has not been scammed in anyway or sent with uncleared payment:thumbsup:



Yeah I re read back what they said, was hoping that wasnt the case but just goes to show that people will feck you over anyway they can these days.

Thanks for all the help, I have had a e-cheque before and took about 2 weeks to clear, but it told me it was e-cheque and told me to wait for payment to clear, this time it says post now. I think its because I have low feedback - rep left to all
