Didnt really want to do it, but i just sold something on ebay and the buyer paid via paypal. It was alot of money ($600.00), and paypal is telling me my balance is "pending", or a payment hold. WTF does that mean? Here is paypals definition: "A payment hold is a type of reserve in which 100% of the funds received are held for a specified amount of time." The give no definition of what a "specified" amount of time is.... Im guessing my money wont be released until after the buyer recieves his item?
