    I've recently sold a pair of my spacejams on the bay for 3 and some change...The problem is when i tried to move the funds from my account i got a messagesaying that in order to protect the buyer paypal will sometimes hold the money in the account until the item is received...has this ever happened to anyoneelse?

    This is a new thing paypal is doing. They will hold your payment for twenty one days, or until the buyer leaves positive feedback. I actually sold NBA All stargame tickets, and I had to wait to get the money. I thought it was BS, so I called their customer support to complain and what not. They finally released thehold on my money, and added it to my account. You have to provide shipping confirmation if you haven't done so. Just call up there 800 number or w/e andcomplain. Basically, tell them its your money and you want it.

    If they don't release it themselves, ask to speak to a supervisor. It always works. Just make sure you have shipping confirmation with whatever service yousent it out with. Hope that helps.

    Dont worry your money is good. its how ebay and paypal "work" together to make the buyer more safe. you prob have low feedback. but just providepaypal with tracking info or wait til buyer leaves positive feedback. even then itll take a couple more days so just give them a call and they'll releasethe funds to you ASAP.

    I used to have 100 feedback when it started happening to me. it stopped after i had 100 something and 99% plus became a powerseller.

    Just get a tracking # and once that provided your funds should be released... i think.. haven't done ebay since they implemented no negative feedback forbuyers/ paypal holding funds
