Why is my money being held in reserve?

We hold money in reserve just in case you receive payment reversals or chargebacks, and your PayPal balance isn't enough to cover them.
To find out how much money is being held or in reserve, simply click Details under the "PayPal balance" section. From time to time, we may need to adjust your reserve amount. If that happens, we’ll email you about the changes.
