    assume you must be a new ebayer - paypal will hold the money until buyer leaves you feedback or 28 days passes

    if you are a new seller all your funds will be pending from every sale. it's for 21 days I think.

    You need to post it asap,the poor buyer will be wondering what's going on.

    Funds Availability
    Holding received funds in a pending balance

    Why isn’t the money I’ve received immediately available for me to use?

    Sometimes funds that you’ve received are not immediately available for withdrawal. This is a common industry practice that we implement to help ensure the safe use of the PayPal service by buyers and sellers alike. The funds will be shown in your pending balance, rather than in your available balance. Funds shown in your pending balance will be moved to your available balance within 21 days. Your pending balance helps ensure there is money in your account in case problems arise with any of your transactions. The money still belongs to you. It’s just temporarily not available to use, until your buyer has received the item they ordered in the condition promised.
    In this article, we will explain the different reasons why funds are temporarily unavailable, and how you can prevent delays in funds being available in the future.
    Why are funds placed into my pending balance rather than into my available balance?

    There are three main reasons funds may be unavailable:
    You’re a new seller with PayPal.
    It takes time for new sellers to build up enough history to demonstrate a pattern of positive buyer-seller transactions. The good news is that by building up a history of positive selling activity, your funds may become available immediately.
    Customers indicate issues about your selling performance.
    Performance is based on the speed of delivery of goods or services. The percentage of refunds, disputes, and chargebacks compared to sales on your PayPal account are key indicators of seller performance. Having performance issues increases the likelihood of received funds being temporarily unavailable. Working with your customers to prevent disputes and chargebacks will help avoid the delay in availability of funds.
    There’s a higher than average risk associated with your sales activity.
    If there is an indication that a high level of risk is present, your money could be temporarily unavailable. You may be selling what we consider high-risk items. High-risk items include tickets, gift cards, consumer electronics, computers, and travel packages. Further examples of higher risk sales activity would be a recent spike in sales, a change in average selling price, or a change in business model or type of item being sold.
    When will I have access to my money?

    If there aren’t any problems with the order, such as a customer filing a dispute, the funds will move to your available balance within 21 days of receipt.

    The buyer could have also paid by Paypal ECheque which doesn't clear straight away, check the Paypal transaction.

    Doesn't matter how long you've been with eBay, are you new to selling?

    Not new to that either rang them so will sort it.

    I think they usually do this when the item you sold is of a high value, so it will take a week or so to become available.
    I sold a phone on eBay and I had to wait a month, before it being reduced to a week after marking the item as posted and added a tracking number.
    Hope this helps!
