I am sorry, I just cannot believe this explanation. My business pays many of its bills using ACH payments, withdrawn from my account and credited to the payee within 24 hours if mad on a business day. Same for incoming funds. If nothing else, I would like to be given advance notice of such a significant change in policy that would affect clearing funds in a transaction and when a seller will receive funds. I purchased something on ebay 10/21, go to Paypal, noted that I had to now switch the payment method from my credit card to a verified checking account, it is now called echeck, but I just accept the name change, but which is 180' from the way it used to be, where you had to pull teeth to get to your credit card for use, and I get an announcement just moments ago, 10/27, 5:00PM, that my echeck "cleared". Six days! This is sorely beyond ridiculous. Now the seller will have his 1-4 days to ship the sorely needed item. Wrong. I will find other solutions to this problem which will not involve paypal. Sorry. You had a good thing, but you are now trying to squeeze out just a bit more profit on your clientels dime! So typical of the financial industry.
