Why is my payment from a sale on eBay not available immediately?
When you get paid for items sold on eBay.com and eBay.ca, your payment might not be available immediately. Your money is usually available in 21 days or sooner to ensure your buyers receive their items.
This typically affects sellers with a limited selling history and sellers with a Below Standard seller rating on eBay. In some cases, sellers may be affected if there’s a high level of risk associated with their account or transactions. Learn more about what you can do to access eBay payments faster.
