This seems to be the second time it happened to me but I don’t exactly remember last time. Anyway, I sold a pair of boots on ebay, buyer paid promptly as shown in Ebay. But, when I went into my paypal, no money, no transaction. Then I noticed an email saying I got paid, up fund is being held for 21 days. Paypal holds fund for inactive sellers or new seller, I’m certainly not as I had sales record quite recently. Then, I realized that the email address Paypal notified me to is NOT EVEN ASSOCIATED with my current Ebay Paypal! I used to use that address, a different Paypal, but quit it & importantly, its not linked to my ebay seller account. My recent last sale got paid alright into my correct Paypal. How did this buyer even manage to pay me at my old inactive Paypal?? How did he even have a choice?
