Since PayPal appears to be minimizing the importance of confirmed shipping addresses, this information should be considered to be out-of-date.

A PayPal Confirmed Address is a special status PayPal gives to shipping addresses that match the billing address tied to a buyer's credit card. However, there are a few other methods for setting up a confirmed shipping address that PayPal outlines on their support page linked below. Shipping to a confirmed address adds an extra layer of fraud protection, which is why we encourage sellers on Swappa to require a confirmed shipping address from buyers on their listings.

Nearly all sellers here on Swappa require a confirmed shipping address, and not having a confirmed address is one of the most common causes for failed payments. For more information about confirmed shipping addresses, please visit this PayPal support page.

Please note that having a "confirmed address" is NOT the same as having a "verified account" with PayPal.
