    There is probably an upper limit to the transaction. Above a certain threshold it could trigger fraud checks.

    I had to prove where my money came from when I transferred to Norway. But it wasn't PayPal and no where near 30 days.

    I've had overseas payments, small amounts, for books and such, never get to me--- from paypal.

    Try as I might, I could never raise the issue with anyone at the Paypal site to get it resolved. Since then I just tell people not to use Paypal.

    I honestly think that paypal is geared for the BUYER not the seller. The only advantage of using paypal is the blue button. Far more hassle to enter your card info than to click the blue button when buying something.

    For the seller, (every tree service), BUYER BEWARE.
    butch i know you say differently but i wonder if you are buying? or selling? Or providing a service?
    Again easy to buy on paypal, but look out and beware if you provide a service for compensation.

    Butch would like to have you're problems. Unfortunately not many of us are paypaling him $10,000 at a wack.

    I hope it all resolves agreeably for you Frans.

    That is when paypal drags its feet. Petty transactions got through just fine.

    $10,000 is the magic number that triggers financial investigations, you have to prove where it's coming from. Pretty well everywhere.

    Or if you get real pissed off with Butch for some reason.
    Just send him 20 grand and watch him try to talk his way out of it with the IRS and Homeland security.


    It has been that way a long time, in fact.
    When I did my emigration attempt to California in 1988, we had to keep every transaction under 10 grand, so we'd stay out of trouble, since we were in effect, illegal emmigrants.
