This is the first time i am using paypal. my friend recently sent money from usa. It's on hold. What is the fastest way to credit the money to my account?

Re: Payment hold



Is it on hold because you haven't added that currency to your paypal account.

Or is it on hold because.............


Its down to how the payment was SENT to your account.

1. If they sent using money > goods / services option then paypal would see you as a seller and apply the new seller hold. They would also charge you a fee.

2. If they had sent using the send money > family / friends option then you would have had the payment instantly with no fee. (However that option is not available in every country).

There are however some occasions where friends / family payments are held for reviews but these are normally only 24 hours.

Advice is VOLUNTARILY given.
