What's a confirmed PayPal Address?

  • Confirm in your Account

    Log into your PayPal account and click on the "Confirm Address" link. This link should be visible on the left side of the page under the "Enhance Your Account" category if your address has not yet been confirmed.  If you have shipped to an address in the past, it may be confirmed already.

    Link a credit card to your PayPal account. 

  • This is one of the quickest and easiest ways to confirm your shipping address at PayPal. Be sure that the credit card company has the same address as the one on the PayPal account.

    Apply for PayPal Buyer Credit

  • Choose "Apply for PayPal Buyer Credit" as an alternate means of confirming your shipping address. If you are approved for a line of credit (credit card) through PayPal the address on your application form will automatically become your PayPal confirmed shipping address.

  • Complete Alternate Address Confirmation

    This option is only available if you live in the United States. This option is not available for residents of other countries. When you click on the link for "Alternate Address Confirmation" details will be provided. This process is slower than the first two methods.

  • Wait for address confirmation to occur

    If you are linking a credit card or applying for a line of credit your address will be confirmed within a couple of days. If you chose alternate address confirmation the process may take a week or more.
