Here's the situation: I sold my 13" MBP on eBay. Buyer sent me the money, however PayPal is holding it for 21 days/until the buyer receives it and confirms the item was received. Now, the problem is, I was going to use those funds to buy my replacement Mac, then ship this one off. I was expecting it to take 2-3 days for the funds to appear in my bank account so I can set up shipping and the buyer have it within 4-5 days. This is a huge PITA.. it basically screws up the whole plan. I can't be without a computer for 21 days! I need the funds now. And the whole "holding thing" is bloody stupid - the buyer paid postage! Yet, I can't have access to the bloody postage money, so I'm having to cover the postage on my on behalf until the 21 day period! Anyone else been in this situation? How was it resolved? Any ideas?
