I HAD a Paypal account before(closed it). When I received my wage(my account was new), my money was put on hold. So my then employer confirmed the 'order' and the money got released immediately.
Now, on a new and different account(my current) my money is again on hold. When my current employer confirmed the 'order' though, my money was not released. Why is it that way? I was expecting it to be released since in my previous account I encountered no such problem as having to wait 7 days.
The sender may have the option on their account to mark the transaction as delivery/satisfied. If they confirms this by clicking on the "Confirm Receipt" button, the funds may be released to you sooner. This is not always guaranteed.
