eBay may place a transaction hold on funds depending on your seller status or the category you're selling in:
- New or infrequent sellers will experience transaction holds while eBay confirms that their items have been successfully delivered. This helps sellers become established and build a strong selling history on eBay. New sellers may experience holds for up to 21 days in limited circumstances.
- Previously restricted or suspended sellers will experience transaction holds for 30 days after the restriction or suspension is lifted while eBay confirms that the items have been successfully delivered.
- High-priced items or unusual selling patterns may lead to transaction holds for up to 30 days to help us ensure that buyers don't have any issues with the order.
- The authentication process may lead to transaction holds for up to 30 days until the authenticity of items sold with eBay's Authenticity Guarantee can be confirmed.
