When a buyer's address is "confirmed", it means their credit card billing address has been verified.
Why Confirm a Buyer's Address?
While most unconfirmed addresses are not fraudulent, a confirmed address provides an extra layer of protection, as it helps to identify stolen credit cards, prevent identity theft, and reduce the likelihood of fraud-related chargebacks.
Shipping to an unconfirmed address is generally safe, but not entirely without risk. Take a look at our safer selling tips to get some helpful pointers.
How to Confirm a Buyer's Address
Let your buyers know why address confirmation is a good idea. Here are a few ways for them to do it:
They can add a credit card to their PayPal account. PayPal will then confirm the credit card billing address.
They can apply for a PayPal Plus Credit Card or an eBay MasterCard. If approved, the address on their application will be a confirmed address.
They can opt for Alternate Address Confirmation. This takes several days and is only available for US accounts.
