I'm not much of a seller on ebay, but I'll do it every once in a while. Everytime I've sold something the payment is usually processed right away in paypal and I'm able to directly transfer to my bank. So..with the most recent item i've sold.. the buyer tranferred the funds but they're on "hold" for 21 days or until the person leaves me feedback ( which I've yet to receive). Is there anyway to prevent this from happening again? Is this a new policy? Does it only happen randomly or when you sell a high priced item? I want to sell my iMac eventually, but I don't want to have to wait almost a month just to receive the funds.
