PayPal will release held funds about three days after proof of delivery. That means you have to ship with DC or tracking and have the number uploaded to eBay/PayPal which is automatic if you print your labels through either one.
Otherwise your funds are held longer and will be released if no dispute is filed about three days after the 21 day hold.

If you upload tracking to PayPal, don't trust eBay to do it for you, they should release three days from delivery but sometimes you have to call them.

Look on your PayPal account. It will tell you after each item when your funds should be available. A few months ago, they kept everything for 21 on my husband's account even though the Delivery Confirmation said the items were delivered.
You need Delivery Confirmation on everything you ship to get you funds released quickly. If purchase your shipping at the USPO or UPS, you will have to upload the DC numbers on ebay. If you purchase your shipping from ebay, all the information will automatically be uploaded on the items. Best way to go is ebay Shipping Labels. There is a little discount for purchasing shipping on ebay.
