Hi, I just won a giveaway. The person that hosted the giveaway PayPal me the money, but it says that it is on hold. It says that I must deliver something first then only the money will be released, but this is not a delivery, this is a giveaway. Please help me, I don’t know what to do…
Sadly as you don't have the friends/family option to receive gifts of money in your country, then all payments are sent as per goods/services and you are seen as a seller. Read the above link.
Mark the transaction as processed then the buyer or sendermayhave the option on their account to mark the transaction as delivery/satisfied. If the buyer or sender confirms this by clicking on the "Confirm Receipt" button, funds may be released sooner ie 7 days after the buyer or sender verifies receipt. This is not always available or guaranteed. If not then sadly its 21 days.
