Same issue. I have sold out of 100% of my PayPal crypto and moved to Coinbase never to return. Much better service that ACTUALLY GETS WHAT CRYPTO IS ABOUT and makes it easy. Holding your funds makes PayPal a worthless wallet for Crypto. Don't use it.
10 days on hold for crypto can mean hundreds of dollars in losses... Very bad from PayPal... they need to be sued.
Customer service is not helpful, as they only talk about 'shipping carriers' 'waiting ro buyer to garity the item'.... none of that applies.
Paypal is not ready for being in the crypto business. can't wait to get it all out
SamP89. I got my money. It was held for exactly 72 hours. I made a sale after that and the funds were immediately available. So it is unclear whether a hold will happen all the time or just randomly.
An ACH transfer from Coinbase to Paypal could take up to 3 days. Check coinbase and see how long the transfer should take. I'm sure coinbase has that information somewhere. Transferring money from coinbase to your bank or Paypal doesn't happen instantly, unless you specifically select an instant transfer and pay the added fee, if instant transfer is an available option.
You'll get your money for sure, when you'll get it is another story. It all depends on how the transfer is made. If it is an ACH (Automated Clearing House) bank to bank type transfer, then it could take a day or up to 3 days. ACH transfers usually happen in batches, I think about 3 times a day. And there's different types of ACH transfers, fast and slow. Fast is usually one day. There's info online about how ACH transfers work and how long they take. Then if you're transferring to your debit card, that's a different type of transfer I think, and it can happen much faster.
The information about how long it should take should be on coinbase, because it's pretty much up to them which type of ACH transfer they select and the speed they want it to happen at. Faster costs them more in general. But I've made several transfers from coinbase to my bank and I have always gotten the money, I don't remember how long it took though. You will get the money, I just don't know how fast, you'll have to get that info from coinbase.
