Available money on paypal

If I sell a product, do I have the money automatically available on PayPal, or is it only available when the product is received by the buyer?

Its been MY experience that the money is usually there, less the Paypal fee they charge right away (unlike Ebays new mangled payments where who knows when and how much is released to you).
I do recall Ebay had something they called an e-check that had a 2 or 3 day wait period before paypal got the money but I do not believe Bonanza has such nonsense. Hope this helps, good luck and happy sales to you here.

The funds in PayPal are there instantly. However, if you are a brand new PayPal seller, PayPal MAY hold your funds for a few days. This might occur if the purchase amount was very large and/or you do not have an established, verified PP account.

Bonanza has nothing to do with the funds that go to PP from the buyer or back to you as a seller.

If you are an established seller, the funds less Paypal fees are available when you mark the item “Shipped” if the person has paid with a debit or credit card. If for some reason they pay with an “e-check” which is a withdrawal from their bank account, it may take several days, and you will be advised not to ship until the payment clears. Then after you mark it shipped the funds will be available. This hardly ever happens. Most people pay with a card.

Hi everyone! My self Moez Mujtaba the tech evangelist, so You could see the balance of your PayPal account on your payment page. Along with your balance due, you may even see an outstanding balance if you do have payment transactions that are usually outstanding. You could also see any foreign exchange payments you carry. Your Activity page is a database of the payments you sent or received. And seeing your balance using your PayPal Mobile app, just open the app and log in.

I don’t think it works that way. It would be more reasonable if the bank holds the amount of the payment and sent it to your account when the customer receives a purchase. Am I right? Friendly speaking, I do not know if PayPal works instantly. Lately, I have made all my transactions within cryptocurrency. I hope, everyone will use that method soon. Blockchain technology is one of the best inventions. It provides a high level of security. Well, it means I don’t have to worry about my money safety. I play on faispin.io that also uses blockchain to keep an account secured.
