eBay gives that message for more than one reason.

 

You must login to PayPal to find out what the reason is.

 

echecks are shown with a clearing date.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

If you see nothing at all on PayPal about this payment you have a problem with account set up or the email for payment on the listing.

 

eChecks have red flags on them and don't ship yet.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.
