Payment on hold

I received money from my brother who lives in Australia. Why does Paypal keep talking about Ebay transactions?

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. See link for information on the new seller hold.

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.
