Paypal "Pending" delay

Payments made using Paypal may be delayed up to six days.  Paypal recently instituted a "Pending" classification for payment transactions which may last up to four business days.  Payments made with Paypal that are subject to the Pending delay result in the following letter to Dressage Illustrated.  

Pending status also results in a notice on our shopping cart warning that the order should not be filled until Paypal releases the transaction.  

Email and phone attempts seeking a detailed explanation from Paypal were not answered.  Our request to stop placing transactions in a Pending status were ignored.
