Paypal Holds ?!?!

submitted on March 14, 2016 by Goofy_Girl in "Buxr Website / Contests"
For the very first time, I was sent a Payment via Paypal. I've never accepted Paypal/cash for winnings before, only Amazon Gift Cards.

Anyway, at my request, I figured I'd try it this time. O-M-*! Paypal put a 21-DAY HOLD on the funds BUXR sent. Yet another reason I dislike Paypal. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yan, if you're reading this, I am sooo sorry I switched to Paypal. I just switched back to gift cards & sent the Paypal payment back to you. Please send me an Amazon e-gift card at your earliest convenience. I appreciate it; thank you.😊

BTW, If some of you know of any good payment sites you prefer over Paypal, please list them here.🙋

    I have never experienced any problems with PayPal but I also have PayPal credit card and many accounts tied to PayPal. Do you have a bank account linked to PayPal or are you new to PayPal? I personally prefer PayPal for myself so I can keep track of online business expenses.

    Same as CouponNut...PayPal card and bank account linked to PayPal. I use it often online at many places because I don't have to submit my credit cards. I am extremely happy with PayPal and have never experienced a problem. Love it with Ibotta also. PayPal doesn't take any money out for using it with them.

    Hmm, maybe that's why...
    I wanted to separate my Paypal "business" from my Paypal "personal" stuff. (The Paypal T.O.S. says you can have 1 business account & 1 personal account.) So, I recently set up this personal Paypal account for non-selling activities.

    OK, still, back to Amazon gift cards. Sooo much easier for me!😊
