holding paypal funds

i recently purchased a pair of sfamk. and got this message from the seller:

"Kindly leave feedback for PayPal to release funds held, being this is a new account. Thank you for your order, hope you like the jeans and Merry Christmas."

feedback and paypal hold have nothing to do with each other. am i correct?

This happened to me a couple weeks ago. I guess they randomly do this to new sellers that have less than 25 seller feedbacks. If a positive is not left the money will not clear for 21 days. Some sellers won't ship and are trying to wait the 21 days for payment to clear.

They will release earlier if there is a proof that the item was delivered.

That has happened to me, too: A seller requested that I leave feedback to get the funds released. She was a totally honest seller, as she actually accepted a return from me and was a doll. I had no reason not to believe her.

Please wait to leave FB until you receive the jeans.

exactly do not leave feedback until you receive item, it is a new policy by paypal to either wait for feedback or after a certain time they release the funds but your seller needs to follow policy and not ask you to submit feedback

yeah this is a policy that has been in place for a while now. Like others said wait to leave feedback. The seller is supposed to ship the items after they receive payment and it is held in this way.

I have never heard of this, its just for newer buyers then?

That would suck if you were a seller.

no, it has nothing to do with the buyer. it is for sellers/transactions deemed "high risk", generally because of the seller's feedback

Oh jeesh...I am just tired, I meant sellers

So someone who is not "new" could be deemed high risk then...

What deems a seller high risk?

My husband bought a gift card last week. The seller was a noob. The seller sent a message to leave feedback right away to release her funds. Hubby was smart enough not to do so.

Two days later, seller is no longer registered. Gift card poofed. Gone. Like it never existed. No message from Ebay or PP. Spontaneous refund pending has turned into refund bounced.

Hubby is not allowed on ebay anymore. Filed claim with PP. We'll see what happens.

An example of why you should never leave FB before you get the goods.

Just wanted to add: my seller didn't ask me to leave feedback until I already had the jeans in my hands, and only asked me to do so that the funds would be released so that she could refund me. I would never EVER advocate leaving feedback before you recieve an item! That's asking for trouble...

I had to call paypal because my seller was doing the same thing. If they don't ship, the money will remain on hold for 21 days. It's been a few days since you posted now, but if she/he still hasn't shipped have them call paypal themselves so they can explain it to them.
