A little bit of patience should be afforded by sellers when accepting payments via paypal. Paypal is a great service for the ebay community and is very easy to use; just go to http://pages.ebay.com.au/paypal/launch.html for Australian buyers and sellers, read the introductory page, then click 'join paypal today' and follow the prompts.
You can use paypal to pay for purchases or accept payments for items sold, and you can do this by using a credit card or by linking your own bank account to transfer money in and out of your paypal account. Transfering money, however, takes time and this is where sellers need to show a little patience.
Buyers who pay by paypal do not always have access to a credit card and may use their Australian bank account to top up funds in their paypal account. When funds are transferred from banks, time is required for these funds to clear. It can take up to 3 days for funds to clear, and even longer when there is a public holiday or weekends during this processing time.
So, when receiving payment via paypal, be aware that your buyer may require a few more days to pay you, and your patience may be a virtue.
