One of the great annoyances of 2012 for many has been the hamfisted manner in which PayPal introduced faster, or near-instant, balance withdrawals from Paypal to an associated bank account.
PayPal were required by the FSA to have Faster Payments by February this year (iirc). They missed that deadline and promised to have it all sorted by the summertime. They missed that too but in the past few months advances were made. Although not everyone was enjoying the benefits immediately, others were experiencing delays and others subject to mysterious “security checks”.
But the comments about delays and problems seem to have died down. Has PayPal got it right at last? Is everyone able to get near instant withdrawals using Faster Payments? Let us know what your experiences have been in recent weeks.
