Having exactly the same issue. The buyer has his goods and hapy with the transaction and we've both left favourable feedback for each other and yet PayPal still refuse to release my funds and claim they will hold them for an additional 2 weeks !!
I am beyond furious. I followed their process to the leter and this is how I get treated. They claim its for the proection of customers etc. what a load of rubbish !! The buyer has his goods and is happy ... now give me my money !!!! and to top it off they take a % of the payment for handling the transaction as well as keeping my $$ for 3 - 4 weeks !! I am so frustrated now I just want and desperately need my $$$
Its an ebay and not a paypal hold and as they are now 2 different companies they have different payment hold requirements.
Ebay will notify paypal when you can have your funds and feedback does not count for payment release.
Info on ebay holds in link below >>
I just recently started having the same problem. I have sold over 1000 items on ebay with a 99.1 percent satisfaction rate. I have sold items from 10 dollars to a 1000 dollars. All that crap about recent increase in sales, or price increases is just that, bull. I believe they are holding funds to collect interest based on some bullcrap formula some person invented that has never had to work for a living, and is sucking on the teat of the last few people actually working in America. I need my money to buy more to sell, to repair items for sale, to pay my fricking bills. I am sick of calling and begging for MY MONEY. I am normally a relaxed person, but this crap is super annonying. I sent an email to try to resolve this and got an idiotic canned statement that a ten year old could write. Hopefully some company can come along and compete with these two **bleep** companies and provide a REAL service, instead of this infantile based algorithom. I don't want to write stupid comments, I don't want to call and beg for my money, Plus I thought this was a banking/credit card service - every time I log in some stupid ad appears - take me to my account - for the love of PETE! I want a company that deposit my money the second they receive it. STOP wasting my time!
Sorry to hear your having this trouble too. I called Paypal the other day and my 6 month reserve is up June 7th in a few days. They said that all the funds will be released by afternoon that day FINGERS CROSSED. Will definitely keep everyone posted here afterwards if it was released as stated or complications occur... Good luck everyone
To the person that keeps saying Paypal and Ebay are two separate companies like a parakeet. They may be 2 separate companies now but they are not mutually exclusive, one does not work without the other, so you better believe their policies are lined up together. It is an effort to collect interest with your money simple as that, separating the 2 companies just makes it easier to get you going back and forth while they keep collecting interest.
Try and get your facts correct.
Yes they are linked in the sense that ''some'' Ebay payments are processed through paypal.
But a lot of sellers now DO NOT use paypal and can accept c.c payments etc directly.
Ebay and Paypal have 2 SEPARATE hold policies for transaction that are processed through Ebay and transactions that are processed via other websites and privately.
So to give accurate information on when funds will be released then we need to know if its an Ebay hold OR a Paypal hold.
