What crash said.  The purchaser completed his part of the transaction promptly, correctly, and completely.  He is not involved in my War on PayPal and I won't allow him to get involved in any way, for any reason.  Nothing about this has anything to do with the purchaser - not one thing - and it's not his job to help out with my end.

But thanks for the suggestions, guys.  They may help others in the future.
Heard that, just brainstorming...

I understood Eddie.  I'm trying to make that point often, in case someone joins the conversation late.

Just used PP on an EBay purchase for $422 and change.
We'll see how it plays out.

What crash said.  I've spent WAY more thru PayPal than I'm trying to find and withdraw.

I've used paypal for as long as I can remember and I've never had a problem.  Any chance that the account hasn't had much activity or large transactions in the past?  I can see them being cautions about it if that was the reason but your case does seem a bit annoying with different stories from each person. 

Hope you get this resolved soon.

The funds were there when you sent them, curplunkie.  They kind of disappeared when I got around to trying to move them out of PayPal.  I'll chase them down, but thank you for asking if you can help.  Mighty stand-up thing to do.

Oh, I'll get it resolved.  You can count on that.  The only time I've used it for a large amount was when I made a $1000 payment.  This is the first time I've received a payment in any amount, and perhaps they are being cautious, but I keep being told the funds have already been sent to my bank.  That's a bit scary because they didn't arrive and don't appear to be in process.

Thanks.  For every horror story I read, hearing a happier tale helps me calm the hell down.

I bought a Revo on here with PayPal, and also bought my Motorcycle with PayPal.  I always offer to come back later and pickup the goods after the person feels it has been deposited otherwise will give my license or other info.

I would encourage people to use PayPal as it is convenient, plus my wife doesn't see that account.. so it's all for guy stuff.

Making the payment yes, but receiving it aint so unless you know the person enough. It happens before, remember paypal favor the payer not the payee. Paypal has money back guarantee no questions ask. Be careful receiving payments through this method.

My understanding is they use their ACH api for their account transfers, same apii you would use if you were using pay flow as a business. It only settles sun-thurs, and after business hours. ACH only operates during banking hours-I know it is the weirdest thing- so if you triggered it when the gateway is down you'll get an error, but that takes like 4-5 days -I know weird again.

So, might not be gone, gone, but just not there yet

I was just curious if the transaction for the kayak was done as a business deal/purchase or as friends and family's ? I do lots of business through them but if people are willing I always route it friends and family to avoid fees.

This is an interesting topic though because I have always wondered how it would go if I ever tried to pull out a large amount to have them put in my bank account if they would scrutinize my account closer and want their unpaid fees?
I ended up just always using the money through eBay and places that accept PayPal so it never is an issue. Even Home Depot accepts PayPal I believe even at the cash registers in the store.

. plus as someone else noted on here the missus has no idea about my pay pal balance so it's like hidden money

No indication it was a hack job at this time.  We - their support people and I - did a second bank routing verification the day before I asked for the transfer to my bank, and the two PayPal test deposits (and withdrawals) into my account went smoothly.  Their records on the big transfer show it was "sent" to the correct bank account.  My pennies are just wandering, lost and frightened, somewhere in the ether.

Still calling daily, and you wouldn't believe the different wild and far-fetched explanations I get when I call.  If it weren't happening to me, some of them would be knee-slapping funny.

One of these days I find it.  They have to reconcile their accounts sometime.
