Help with a sale please

Hi everyone. I made my first doll sale via PayPal last night. The invoice HAS been paid. Do I need to wait a few days before shipping the doll out to make sure I recieve the money? I just want to try to protect myself. Any advice you can give me would be very appreciated. Thank you! :slight_smile:

No, she became interested in the doll because it was posted on she emailed me and agreed to pay via paypal. I sent the invoice and within 24 hrs she paid it. I have not sold much on paypal before though so I don’t know if I needed to wait a few days for the funds to clear or something.

If they are on hold, because you are a new seller. You need to ship :slight_smile: As long as it is not pending, because buyer sent an echeck then you are fine to ship.

I ship as soon as paid, but I don’t spend the money until after it’s received and accepted.

They had just made their paypal accout and had to wait 3 days for verification. When the account was verified she paid.

From what I m hearing, I am all set to ship. Thank you ladies! You all are always so helpful!

When you log into your paypal does it say funds available? If it does you can ship if it says pending I would call paypal and ask them first.

Ok, thank you. I will look now!

It says fund available! :smiley:
