Hi,

since someone already started a Paypal related thread, can I ask a question here so that I don’t have to open a new thread about it…?

Whenever I get payed by Envato, I can spend/withdraw the money immediately, but when I do some custom freelance jobs, and get paid, it goes to my pending balance and I have to wait about 25/30 days before I can use it in any way.

This is what Paypal says:

“Payments you receive go to your pending balance. Payments in your pending balance belong to you, but you can’t use them or withdraw them. After you have a successful selling history with us, payments you receive go directly into your available balance shortly after they’re sent, as long as your customer hasn’t reported any problems with the purchase.”

Now, has anyone any advice on how to create that “successful selling history”? What does it depend on?

I have Paypal for over a year now, around 30+ nice payments received, issued invoices, bought stuff with, verified status…

When do you achieve a successful selling history so that you can avoid the pending balance?

Sorry if this question has been asked before, I was browsing the forum for a related topic/question, couldn’t find it…

Never had this issue before. However, I do know that Envato isn’t sending you money like a normal customer would. I believe they are sending it to you under the method of “goods” or something. It really is different than that of selling stuff.

I guess that they do this Pending balance for a few of these “lesser” countries, like Bosnia… Someone mentioned this once, I remembered now…
