Update the status of your service or virtual product sale

Hi @temp20211017,

 

Thank you for your post!

 

If you click the transaction details, you can mark the item as shipped. Once you do this, the buyer can mark on their end that they received the virtual product or service. 

 

I hope this helps!

I'm in the same situation. Did you ever get an answer on this?

Hi,

firstly this happens if your paypal account is setup as a business account and no verified. this means that any funds that come in your account is treated as a transaction by the system.  the quick fix would be to click on the transaction, add tracking number , under the drop-down menu select "order processed" and submit. The funds will reflect in your balance in 7 days.

The permanent fix will be to verify your account, there is no debate about that.

Hi. my account is just a personal account. The same issue as above my money is on hold. i do not sell anything, a friend just sent money and it asks for shipping/tracking number.  What do i do? Do i still need to verify my account?

I don't think you have the friends/family option in your country so all payments are seen as paying for goods/services.


With payments received for tangible goods Paypal would request valid tracking information confirming the item has been delivered to the buyer. As they can validate the tracking information online, once it is delivered they can release the funds. IF you have received the funds for a service / virtual or digital sale OR no tracking number is applicable as it was a gift payment from a family member then Paypal would be unable to release the funds any sooner than 21 days.

If you mark the transaction as processed then the sender may have the option on their account to mark the transaction as delivery/satisfied. If they confirm this by clicking on the "Confirm Receipt" button, the funds may be released to you sooner ie 7 days after they verify receipt. This is not always available or guaranteed.  If not then sadly its 21 days.

Kudos / Solution appreciated.

So should I ask them to mark it on their end after I have given them the item? I have already given them the item but the payment is taking a while even though I delivered it to them the next day.
