How do I get past this whole "Money on hold" FOR A MONTH? It's ridiculous. I get paid directly by the client, after services provided, are approved. They aren't going to put a payment hold on anything, because they have already agreed to pay. Makes no sense.
Since your transaction may not need shipment tracking info to be added click "Add Tracking Info" to select an Order Status and then ask sender to "confirm receipt" to release funds. Repeat this and if you do not get a lot of disputes or problems reported by your clients, then paypal shall eventually remove you from this hold regimen and only hold if a payment is unusual than your normal activity.
