Money on Hold

Hey guys, I have to paypal accounts a mexican and an usa account. 

I just send money from my mexican account to my usa account but the put the transition on hold cause it says that is from my first selling but i didn’t sell anything so is there any solution to have this money unhold soon? Or what can I do?

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).
