PayPal Transaction Pending : ecommerce


Hi r/ecommerce – I launched my dropshipping store last night and received my first order this morning. I’m using Shopify and the customer paid using PayPal express checkout. It is showing as Payment Pending, any idea why?

I didn’t have PayPal setup I was just waiting for my first payment for them to email and setup as it was suggested on Shopify.

I have searched and some say as soon as they set up PayPal business and verified the account with the same email as used with Shopify it appeared instantly, I’ve done this and still nothing.

Saw elsewhere it may be because they are doing it via eCheck (customer just has their bank setup with their PayPal and not a CC) so may take some time to clear, I don’t want to fulfill the order until I have received the funds. Anyone else had this and what did you do to rectify?
