Hi there:

This may have cropped up before but if so, have not been able to track it down via the forum search function.

My question is whether there is any time limit for funds to be left in a paypal account before withdrawing to an associated bank account? Can funds be left there for a month or more without fear of losing the funds or is there a limit date which has to be respected?

Many thanks in advance for any answers to this one.

I don't know the limits Oct 3, 2005

But for one or two months there's no problem.

If you have an associate account, transferring the money to your account is free (any amount) and you're limited to $500.00/month. I see no reason to leave money in it.

I try to keep my PP account empty and transfer any amount, even if it's only $7.
