How do I get my money sooner for a transaction on hold?

You can work to expedite the release of temporarily unavailable funds by processing your sales quickly and then providing the fulfillment details.

Here are some specific actions you can take:
Action Time to release What you need to do
Print shipping
label with PayPal
3 days after delivery Print shipping label with USPS or UPS on PayPal website and we’ll automatically update the tracking information for you.
Add Tracking 3 days after delivery with supported carriers If you didn’t print the shipping label for a supported carrier with PayPal, upload the tracking number of one of our Supported Carriers. PayPal will release the payment within 3 days of the courier confirming delivery.
Buyer Confirmation Immediate release after buyer confirmation. Your buyers will have the option to confirm that they received the item if you transaction is held. They'll also receive the notification email after you upload tracking/print shipping label.

After your hold is released, it may take until midnight (but it's usually sooner) for the money to appear in your account.
