PayPal Payment Review

Payment Review is an early warning system that helps to protect sellers from fraudulent payments. Payment Reviews are automatic - you don't have to sign up for them.

When we spot a payment that might be fraudulent, we temporarily stop the payment from going through so we can look at it more closely. We send you an email to let you know that the payment is Pending while we do a Payment Review. Reviews usually take up to 24 hours to complete.

If we find that the payment is legitimate, we let you know by email and on your Transaction Details page. You can ship the item and you'll be eligible for Seller Protection as long as the transaction follows Seller Protection guidelines.

If we decide that the payment is most likely fraudulent, we automatically cancel it to protect you.
