  • it depends....If you are a new seller Paypal will sometimes hold your funds for about a month before releasing it. If you have a premier or business account and a paypal debit card you have access to the money immediately (if you use it online for your own purchases you have it immediately as well)....without the debit it takes a few days for a bank transfer to go through

  • yes you will be able to use the money before they get the item once they send the money it is usually don't take long to post to paypal in my experience but transfer to bank account has taken me about a day or less :) Hope this helps

  • As long as you are paying pay pal for something and they don't put some kind of hold on the money.
