    I got an email from Paypal saying that they're going to hold my money for 21 days from now on, for my convenience in case a buyer needs a refund or something. Cool.

    I think Paypal's days are numbered. It's just time for us all to adopt a new, fairer standard payment platform, push for even wider acceptance elsewhere, and we're on the road to success. The systems are in place now.

    I don't know why. My activity hasn't changed at all, except for a few refunds from south willard (sent payment, item sold out and I got some refunds). Apparently that's enough for them to justify holding your money. My favorite phrase from their "we're just gonna keep your money for 21 days FAQ": "While funds are pending, the money belongs to you but isn't available to spend or withdraw."

    And I actually have a pretty active ebay account with 100% positive 100+ feedback, so I don't think it's related to ebay. I also haven't accepted an abnormal amount of gift payments.

    Ha, is that an allusion to me being in that thread for like 40 minutes earlier tonight? When you take a step back and look at the whole thing, that thread is like a Greek tragedy. Lots of glowing praise for the boots and Dayton, even at retail price at the outset of the thread. Then a seemingly harmless act (the anniversary sale) sets off a series of problems. Each new issue escalates the whole ordeal just a little more until we've book-ended the high regards for Dayton at the outset of two-year thread with rumors of the company's demise.

    There's also a nice shift in the antagonist roles over the course of several months from the impatient customers to the clueless CEO.


    Numerous factors at play. I've got nearly 5,000 unique feedback ratings on eBay, but I got hit with the same restrictions a couple of months ago when I was barely selling anything there. Thankfully, they lifted it once I got back to moving more product. It was a tough period, though, because I couldn't even use most of the money I made from my items to reinvest in more product to sell.

    Got the same bullshit a year ago or so with a stupid pair of APC shoes, it was totally random (100% feedback and no red flags) and never happened since. I think it's 21days or until the buyer has left his feedback, whichever happens first.

    This is for an Ebay transaction, right? or are they holding payments the Styleforum and Sufu type transactions too?

    I got the same hold but I transferred the money to my checking account the day after I received a gift payment. Maybe it's only held for ebay transactions?

    Re: The whole Dayton Mess - I guess I would want to know how much of a mess is it really? Was the Service Boot special order debacle just limited to SF and maybe a couple of other SF peers? How much of their sales come from traditional B&M stores throughout Canada. Did the Service Boot issue affect regular production of the rest of their line? I don't know the answer to any of these questions, but I could envision a scenario where 100 guys on the internet didn't get their boot and to Dayton that represents 1% of 1 year's sales, and in the end it isn't really a big deal to them.


    This I doubt. What would replace it? To process payments while minimizing fraud and staying in compliance with the numerous (and growing) rules and regulations surrounding payment processing is a complicated process that requires economies of scale to work. Paypal may have Its issues, but the alternatives are either non-existent or vastly less convenient.
