PayPal uses three types of reserves: rolling reserves, minimum reserves, and jumpstart reserves on accounts. Each reserve type is different and depends on the type of business you do, you can learn more about it here.

“This app did exactly what I need! I'm in the UK using Royal Mail Click & Drop and needed an integration to fill in the tracking details that Royal Mail sends to shopify. All I do is send the parcel and the rest is automatic. This massively helped PayPal not to put any funds on hold. I was new to PayPal and they still held most of the money coming in until I started using this app and then within just 4 weeks they're not holding a penny anymore.”
