How do I know if my buyer has confirmed his order?

So, recently my friend sent me money and it says “On Hold”. I did the “Get Your Money Sooner” option and he never received an email. I really don’t want to wait 20 something days for my money, please help!

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

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

2. If sent using the send money > family / friends option then the recipient would have the payment instantly (as long as it wasn't an echeque pending with a clearance date) 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.

It was sent as the 1st option. What do I do now? I did the “Get your money sooner” option.
