I linked my paypal to my Buymeacoffee account, where I receive donations for translations I'm doing. Yesterday, someone bought me 25 coffees (~75 USD), but PayPal has put it on-hold, thinking that a good/service thing has to be exchanged. But this is a buymeacoffee transaction. It's a donation. There is no need good/service to be exchanged. How can I get my money right away?

I'm from the Philippines. Last November 9, I withdrew 500PHP to my bank account but it still hasn't reflected in my account after 5-7 business days. I emailed Paypal about it several times and they told me that the transaction was already confirmed on their end. So they told me to:
Contact my bank and check if the problem is with them
Wait for 15 business days
Give them my bank statement and whatnot
I HAVE DONE ALL THREE. My bank (BPI) has told me that there is no problem with my account and that there is no on-hold incoming money whatsoever. I've waited more than fifteen business days. I've also sent Paypal a copy of my bank statement, but then they just completely ignored me! I keep emailing them again and again but they won't reply to me anymore!!!
We don't have a telephone, and even if we did, I don't want to contact them by phone because I have anxiety and talking with people in real life makes me nervous. And why should I be forced to use a phone when there's an email option? Paypal Philippines, your customer service is terrible. Just give me my money already. it's only 500PHP... why are you so greedy and selfish
