Why is my PayPal money on hold?

PayPal may put your funds on hold especially when they need more information about a transaction or just to make sure you have enough money in your account to resolve issues like chargebacks or disputes.

This means that your funds will be released faster when the buyer confirms that they received the item they ordered in the condition that was advertised.

Here are more specific reasons why your funds are on hold:


  1. First-time Seller: This can happen when you are a new seller on PayPal, and is still building up the history of your buyer-seller transactions. This means the more time you spend on building up a history of positive selling activity, then the faster funds are released to you.
  2. You have been inactive for a while: When you have been inactive for a long time then there will be a decline in your selling activity which means you have to rebuild a history of positive buyer-seller transactions.

  5. Selling high risk items like tickets, gift cards, consumer electronics, computers, and travel packages and so on.
