Download the free copy of eBay incognito mini here! This mini guide gives step by step on how to create a new eBay & Paypal account. Also goes over various methods to avoid limitation and suspension as well as creating a verified PayPal account using Incognito techniques. This is a great eBook for setting up a basic account.
This one of the questions we hear a lot and receive tons of emails on. Lots of our customers are absolutely frustrated with this 21 day hold policy! Many of customers have asked us, “Is there a way around it?” Sadly, there isn’t. We hate this policy as much as the next person. There is so much wrong to it and so much loopholes to the point where it doesn’t even protect the seller.
The hold policy applies to any sales made even off selling on eBay. If you try to go around the system by sending an invoice using services, then it will not go through. Many have try that and resulted in a hold. If your account reads the message that explains fund will be held, then even when sent as gift, they will still get the dreaded payment hold.
So this still raises the question. How do I remove Paypal’s 21 day hold? The only way we know to do that is to confirm your SSN. This would be the only way to have funds instantly. Now this would be fine and dandy for those who still have their original account. For many of you that have been suspended or limited, that option is out of the picture. That would mean to wait it out and pray that eBay removes it.
To insure this outcome. Remember to ship your items fast, include tracking when necessary. If you are selling digital items, then obviously can’t do that which comes with more chances of buyer claiming a “Item Not Received” or “Significantly Not As Described” or “SNAD” for short. However Paypal gives the option of “Order Processed” or “Service Rendered” when you go to the payment you received and enter the shipping info.
By doing so, then the payment should be released within a week if you deal with items that cannot be shipped or forgot to enter tracking number. Tracking number should always be included as well as signature confirmation. These days, you do not know what buyers will do when trying to get the item and their money back. Happened to a lot of our customers as well as I.
My other suggestion is to keep up with your Detailed Seller Ratings or DSR for short. Strive for all positive feedback and minimize negative feedback. Once the ratings are good and you have many satisfied customers, then you should come to the point of having the holds lifted. Is it a guarantee? Knowing Paypal, that is not likely either, but it is pretty much the only option.

Many have gotten limitations and are looking for a new way to create a new account. There are many options to verify your account. First you can enter your SSN, you can confirm your bank, or you can apply for the Paypal Mastercard. These options are fine if you have never used your SSN before. What happens if I have? Well first, Paypal will trace it back to your old limited account, and your new account you created? It is now gone.
So what should you do? First, there is necessary steps on creating a new account.
First off follow these steps as stated here:
- New IP Address whether that be from dongles, ISP, router, or phone tethering.
- Cleared cookies: new windows user or mac user, or ccleaner to delete previous cookies.
- New identity (no not in a fraud type way) this can be variations of your name and address.
- New phone number
- New bank account and credit card. You can also use VBA’s (Virtual Bank Accounts) & VCC (Virtual Credit Cards) You can click here for a good list of trustworthy sellers.
- Any information that is different from your previous accounts.
Now you can follow these steps or you can also purchase verified Paypal accounts already made that can be used immediately. Make sure to buy from a trustworthy, reputable seller. Many sellers out there sell hacked or phished accounts which will only cause even more problems.
We see many people recommend Netspend to verify you Paypal, do not take that advice. As of now, Netspend with Paypal is a disaster waiting to happen. Avoid at all costs unless you want your account limited and locked.
Is there a better alternative? Certainly, using Mango gift cards or even the more time tested one such as Simon Gift cards are excellent and have proven over and over again to be the better alternative. So you have a new VCC ready, what about a bank? Mango and even some prepaid cards come with routing information which you can use; however, not all prepaid cards will accept deposits under a different name. Here is a list we found works fine:
- Walmart Money Card
- Mango Card
- Chase Liquid
- Green Dot Cards
List will be updated as we search for new ones.
