PayPal doesn’t ask you to ship until after you receive payment in your account so check your account. No money? You haven’t been paid, it’s a scam and should not ship. Sometimes, you’ll get a Pending status which means you either received an eCheck that needs to clear first or it’s tagged “On Hold” requiring you to ship and add tracking number to the transaction so PayPal’s system can confirm delivery and release the funds earlier than 21 days.
Hi everyone! Thanks for breaking down the issue on this one @sharpiemarker. Your time and expertise are greatly appreciated.
@Hcooke, I hope this ends up being a legitimate sale. I can certainly understand why you'd be concerned though. You may want to review the following Help Center articles for a bit more information on Receiving payments with PayPal and How to spot fake or fraudulent emails.
