Money being held

My friend sent me money to get gas, diapers, wipes and milk all in which need tonight. However my money has a hold on it until I confirm the order was shipped. There is no order this was a personal payment from a friend. How do I fix this

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).
