Yes you can providing you don't leave a negative balance. Withdrawing doesn't mean you're safe from comeback. If the buyer decides to do a Chargeback Paypal will take the money from your account and ask questions later. If there's no money in they will come to you for payment or an explanation to render the chargeback void. If it's decided that the chargeback is legit..you have to pay back and they go to debt collector level. Charge backs usually only occur if the buyer decides the item is not suitable or doesn't receive it...usually the buyer would have already notified you with any problem so it shouldn't be a surprise. I'd say whatever you dont spend the money until you are sure the sale was a success. Another issue that can occur is when the account of the buyer is hacked and you sell to a spammer. Always check on the paypal sale details that the buyer is eligible for seller protection. Full details here Paypal safe selling
