    receiving e-cheques?

    "You've received an eCheque payment. An eCheque may take 5-7 working days to clear, so you'll see the transaction status set as 'Pending'.

    Here's what happens when you get paid by eCheque:

    The buyer's bank gets a request to pay PayPal.
    PayPal receives the funds from the buyer's bank.
    PayPal will transfer the money to your PayPal account after the funds have cleared and will not be at risk of being reversed by the buyer's bank.
    Your buyer has sent the payment, but we suggest you wait until the eCheque has cleared before posting the item. We'll email you as soon as the money is in your PayPal account.
    We estimate the eCheque will clear between 23/03/2011-25/03/2011.

    Please refer to the PayPal User Agreement (accessible via the Legal Agreements footer on most pages on https://www.paypal.com/uk ) for further information."

    never had one of these before. it's only £3. i wonder why the buyer has chosen to pay this way.

    The buyer has no back up account set up, so you cannot have an instant payment (in case it fails - there would be no way for paypal to get the funds from another source).

    Once it clears it's safe to send the goods.
