just sold my first eBay item...

20 replies
Found 18th Jan
And Royal Mail went **** and my money is on hold 18 days later because my tracking number says not delivered even though seller has confirmed they have received it. I put in the tracking number on eBay, will they not give me the money til the tracking number confirms delivered? Thanks

Not 100% sure but if u email buyer n ask them to leave feedback the holds on PayPal funds are released.

Paypal usually holds all payments for up to 21 days when you first start selling, it doesn't matter if it's signed for or the buyers left fb.

You will have to sell a few items until your funds are instantly available

Didn't know that they would be 100% keeping it for 21 days, it says it could be shorter if feedback is left and I include a tracking number

I know that, it's just that they said it should come WITHIN 21 days and it's been 18 already

You will have to wait some days till your money is available, doesn't matter if tracking number said delivered or not. Happen to me when I start selling as well

think it's to do with being your first sale. have you contacted PayPal?

Nope I'll wait til it's been 21 days before that

I honestly don't see what sellers are getting out of selling on eBay after fees and PayPal fees on top of that!

And that's why I no longer put tracking numbers on eBay items. Seller can always deny they have received them due to Royal Mail not fully tracking them.

​sold a £200 tablet on there today. Paid £1 selling fee, and approx £7 paypal fee- so over £190, thats what.

​PayPal says that but my money was released the day after Royal Mail showed the item as delivered. Took about a week from the time I shipped it for the money to be available.
