So im about to sell something and someone bought the item.
He has 0 feedback though...

I heard paypal freezes the money once you give them a tracking # or something.....?

Im worried that he's gonna claim a file saying I scammed him after I ship out the hoodie...

How can I avoid all this? And is it true ebay/paypal holds the $ until I ship out the item?

You have to earn a reputation for yourself if you want to be able to use the funds immediately. I've sold to plenty of 0 feedback people without a problem
1) most likely your money is already frozen and you'll have to wait a few days after he receives it to be able to use it or transfer it. 2) you can't avoid it and eBay is already holding your funds.

I've sold to people with a zero feedback score on ebay and never been scammed. But I don't sell hoodies and stuff. Paypal still freezes my shit on each sale, but I remember hearing that you get the funds either after they can confirm delivery (another reason why tracking is good), after the buyer leaves positive feedback, or after a certain amount of time passes and no problems have arisen. Don't quote me on shit. I'm relying on my shitty memory which is spotty at best.

I've sold to 0 feedback buyers. Even had one close the account before giving feedback, but they had received their item and I had the money, so I didn't stress and no bad came of it. Always use PayPal, always ship tracked, always open communication(if they seem like scammers or bots, no deal), always take lots of photos(tagged and dated), always cover your ass.

If you haven't sold a lot of items and gotten plenty of feedback, they'll hold your money for ~21 days. If you print your own labels, PayPal will unfreeze whatever amount you paid for shipping. After the item is marked delivered, your money should be available in a few days, although I've only found this with smaller sales, I had to wait the full 21 days after selling a card for ~$300 despite sending it 2-day.

Wtf dat shit sucks. I sold something on big cartel and now
Paypal says I can't touch the money for 21 days or I can speed It up
By printing a shipping label and shipping out the items as fast as possible.
Then I gotta transfer that money into my bank which will take another
2-3 days smh.

Outside ebay would be better in the sense that you don't have to break them off a % of your sale. I did this before actually, and just got the buyer's payment directly through PayPal
