clients have come to my place, left... and I still can't be paid because payment is on hold.
If you are experiencing delayed funds availability, here are some shipping tips that may help you get your payment sooner:
Here’s how (These options may not be available for some countries):
Seller/Recipient: Add tracking information, FIRST:
1. Click Activity at the top of the page.
2. Find and click the original payment for the item or service.
3. Click Add Tracking Info.
4. Select an Order Status: Processed (for virtual goods or services) or Shipped (with or without tracking info).
Then ask buyer/sender to confirm receipt (option may be available within or after 48 hours):
Note: Not all purchases require receipt confirmation.
If buyer does not confirm receipt then PayPal will release the funds after 21 days. Occasionally a payment will be held longer if it is a high risk transaction involving high value payments, electronics, event tickets, jewelry, luxury brand name merchandise. You can request that PayPal manually release the funds by reaching out: click HELP at the top menu, click "Message Center" under the search bar, or just click the "Bell icon" of your PayPal account.
