Money On Hold or Pending

Posted on

I'm not a seller. I received my money from my work. Why it takes too long to receive the money? It stated that payment received and I already have the tracking number but why is that still on hold. 


Money On Hold or Pending

Esteemed Advisor



Its down to how the payment was sent to an account.

1. If sent using money > goods / services option then paypal would see the recipient as a seller and apply the new seller hold. They would also charge a fee.

2. If sent using the send money > family / friends option then the recipient would have the payment instantly (as long as it wasn't an echeque pending with a clearance date) with no fee if funded from a bank account or balance (a fee if you use a card). (However that option is not available in every country).
