I've sold stuff on eBay and have received emails saying people have paid for the items but the money isn't in my bank account and its been like over a week. I dunno what to do about it. On the transactions section on my paypal account it says it is ' completed ' but then a few days ago I received an email from paypal saying one of my payments had been cancelled cause I didn't confirm it or something and then they told me to upgrade to a business account ?! The money for postage has been taken out of my bank account through paypal but i haven't received the money from my buyers on eBay even though they have paid ?!!!

anyone have any ideas

It's best if you log in to paypal and give them a call.

If your account is less than 6 months old, or you don't have good feedback, or you don't have a certain amount of feedback and you sell something on eBay paypal holds your money for a small amount of time until the seller gets their items and you get the money after the seller leaves positive feedback or if the seller doesn't make any complaints then you get the money. It's just a standard security process and makes things easier on the whole so paypal don't need to reimburse the seller in case the item is faulty/broken/not to the standards.

I have no idea about the payment cancellation though so you should phone paypal and ask for some clarity.

Unless you have had a certain number of successful selling transactions via eBay (I forget the exact number but I think it's between 30 and 40) the funds will be pending in your PayPal account for up to 30 days (though it's usually less than this) for security reasons. It is so frustrating.

Ah well sorry but for me I still think that's a reasonable amount of money
