What is funds or payment availability?

PayPal wants to ensure that all sellers provide consistent customer service and deliver items quickly so that their buyers have a great shopping experience. As part of this effort, some sellers who are still establishing a successful selling history will have payments for goods and services placed in their pending PayPal account balance for up to 21 days.

You can usually get your payments sooner if we can confirm that your buyer received their item and is happy with it.
