Why won’t my payment be available for 21 days?

Because you recently started to sell with PayPal and you don’t have any selling history with us, payments you receive are now being placed into your pending balance. As long as there are no problems with the transactions, you’ll have the money within 21 days.

Here’s what you can do to speed things up:

  • If you use USPS or UPS, purchase and print your label on PayPal and we’ll release the payment within 1 day of the courier confirming delivery.
  • Add tracking: upload the tracking number of one of our supported carriers. We'll release the payment within 1 day of the courier confirming delivery.
  • Confirm order status and we’ll release the payment within 7 days upon verification.
 You can view your requirements at any time in the Resolution Centre on your PayPal account.
