    yes some time it takes some time to get paid for items. if the money is in you Paypal accoun and you want the money transfer to your bank account it can take you to 5 working days. plus there are the fees.

    ok that's cool, but say if I was to sell something then should I wait to have the payment clear, or should I just send the package while it clears. Also can a credit card payment be transfered onto a bank account, or would it just be held up in Paypal?

    Always wait for the payment to clear before you send, unless you personally know and trust them.

    If you use a Payal card, pretty it's deducted from your Paypal account. But there may be some instant paypal credit card > bank transfer options, not sure

    Paypal > bank transfers takes 3 days, and it's scary watching your money disappear like that

    Ok one last question, would a debit card work just as fast as a credit card?
