PayPal has kept my money on reserves 30000 since Aug 2020 for no reason! My account has been totally active and clean! I’m closing my account

Re: Payment on hold

Its ridicules. I have had my account for years And I sometimes sell things related to my hobbies on Facebook I have since 2013 and suddenly the last 3 transactions are all on hold And in PayPal jail Its crazy and makes no sense. Its not unusual activity and all the transactions are under $50 But I actually need my money

Hello, @Anu-dhiman, @RaZz0R, @Fareen1 and @Skyler33. Thanks for taking the time to add your comments to the PayPal Community Forum.

PayPal appreciates your kind understanding that absolutely no negative connotation is intended by the application of any policy or procedure. Please also check out https://www.paypal.com/in/smarthelp/article/faq3743 for information on how money might be moved to an Available Balance sooner.

 

I hope this information is helpful. Thanks for your patience during this time.
