Problems with paypal, any other recomended

Hi,
We have been using paypal since maybe a month,
and since we reached the limit of 2500 (in a week) 2 transfers to our bank has been retained for 72 hours.
The limit has been lifted, that is not the reason.
The problem is that if I have some transfer retained and I receive another payment, if I transfer that payment to our bank that transfer will also be blocked for 72 hours, so I have to wait until the transfer been cleared.
This is very annoying, we are renting properties, so we have few sells but with big amounts. I suppose the big amounts is what makes paypal block them for security reasons as per them.

Any idea of what I should do not to get those 72 hours retaining?
Any other company better than Paypal that works worldwide, we are in Spain and work mostly with europe, but also have clients from other continents than Europe.

We all are Paypal victims and there is no solution to this problem.

You can have other options like Moneybookers, Payza or Direct money transfer. So that if there is a problem in paypal, you can disable that and enable other options.

That is the problem, they dont want to,
we have a machine to charge card by fax or phone, but they dont want to let us or anybody else that is not a huge company on internet.

Topr8 please can you tell me if it is easy to register a company in UK for EU residents and if I could just fly there, open a company, and almost immediately get a merchant account ?

Thank you so much for your help.

Registering a UK LTD company does not need for one to go to the UK ..it can be done entirely on line ..by citizens of the EU ..and also by those who are not citizens of the EU ..and many "registration agents" offer "banking introductions" ( which can include setting up on line banking and merchant accounts ) some of the banks which they help with ( via introductions ) have branches in most countries worldwide..

I would talk to PayPay (and make sure you talk via phone, not email). For all the flack PayPal gets, for their business customers I've always had very positive experience with their customer service. We had a large withdraw that I suspected was going to get flagged so I talked with PayPal rep and they confirmed my suspicion that it likely would get flagged and made sure it wouldn't.

There's certain flags that get triggered by PayPal. If you talk to them they may be able to make sure your account doesn't get flagged for them or at the very least let you know exactly what is getting flagged so you can possibly work around it.

Thanks,
I have talked to them after the first flag, and I did from movile....spent 25 euros.
They told me they dont know the reasons and there are sort of automatic check.

What is large withdraw for you?

I am not sure,
but the first flagged withdraw was more than 1000 euro,
on friday I had a withdraw smaller than 1000 euros, I thought it got flagged and I wrote about there politics and got answer 20 hours later and when I checked the withdraw was completed, delay or automatic removed flagging no idea, but they said they cant remove any flagging.
Well after that I withdrawed more than 1000 euros and I got an email saying that one being blocked 72 hours.
Could it be when withdraw is more than 1000 euros?
I think maybe as we are a new campany in Paypal they flag our withdraw for less.

the only payment option for online purchases or gaming that i use is the Paysafecard.... it is universally accepted, easy to use and safe because no personal information is required to get or use it. I would recommend looking into it and seeing if it might be a possible option for you in the future... hope i was able to be of some help!

We withdraw amounts larger than that every week so it's not the $1000euros that is flagging it.

If you're withdrawing to a confirmed bank account (make sure it's actually confirmed!) I can't see the issue as it is relatively risk free.

If you're withdrawing from a public computer (or other wise non-recognized IP) you'll likely get flagged.

Maybe because you do weekly, however I withdrawn every amount we receive, maybe thats the reason? I can withdraw more than one amount per day. I do as this is the easiest for having control.

What do you mean with a public ip, I do from my homecomputer, I have a shared ip.
And yes the bank account is confirmed.
Thanks,

We setup auto withdrawl daily based on incoming - paypal has this option, at least on business accounts.
