5 to 10 business days is more in touch with reality. LL rarely makes their promise of 3 to 5 business days.

I suppose the 'official' reason it takes so long is that they are intentionally slowing the process down so they can spot check transactions for possible fraud. They have access to a way to do it instantly, and they refuse to use the fast way.

Not much you can do about it except to complain to Billing when they exceed their stated processing period.

I agree that it is not at all fair of LL to insist on instant payment from us, but dawdle for days or weeks when it's their turn to pay.  But unless you want to go somewhere else, that's the way things are.

well, I sold a good amount of lindens on the 26th of March and -guess what!- my process is STILL in progress. The worst is that I did open a billing issue case already twice and the reply I got was NONE. I wonder if I will ever get my money into my paypal account

Dear ImHotep Resident,

Based on your volume and/or amount of process-credit requests, Linden Lab is required by applicable law to obtain, verify, and maintain information identifying you as our customer.

 

Liden Lab Policy for Processing Credits

The minimum process-credit amount allowed is $10, plus any fees. The maximum amount per transaction is $9,999 minus fees. If necessary, you can process a larger amount over multiple smaller transactions.
How long does it take to process credits?

Process-credit requests can take up to five (5) business days (Monday-Friday, not including U.S. holidays) to be completed and sent to your PayPal account.

Imhotep Resident

My process credit amount was nowhere near the stated maximum amount of 9,999 so why is it that LL is flagging accounts for modest payouts. I'm finding it very disconcerting that so many Residents are having issues with credits being processed in equitable time outlined in your policy disclosure. SL by way of LL is becoming a tawdry virtual business. If not given the much needed attention to fair and forthcomoing business practices I fear you will no longer be as lucrative judging by the many comments here...

A very Concerned Imhotep

There are no Lindens here. Ever. This is a resident-to-resident Answers service, and none of us has any power (or desire) to look into your account. We can't do anything about policy either.

US/Canada: 800-294-1067

I am in the same boat.  Withdrew only $20 but I am still waiting.

It really makes me leery of having a more sizeable investment in the game, as it is required to purchase or rent land.
