My address on my PayPal account is shown as "Unconfirmed", despite the fact that I've been using it for
several years.  My address on eBay (the same address) has been Confirmed for almost as long as I've had it!  I
have no idea how you get PayPal to confirm an address - their web site seems to give no clue, and as usual the
FAQ list is about as useful as a chocolate teapot...

As I can't get my actual address confirmed, it seems unlikely that I could get conformation on an address that
isn't mine!

But if anyone knows how, please let me know.

Cheers,

Log into your Paypal account.  Click on the search box and search for
'confirmed address'.

Under Profile, Street Address there is also an "Add Address" button.

Hope this helps.

Yes, but I have already added the addresses of my friends in the USA, but none of them are confirmed - there
seems to be no way to get them confirmed, either.  In the Help area they say:  "A confirmed address is an
address that has been reviewed by PayPal and found to be safe based on information related to the address. For
example, a credit card billing address is confirmed because PayPal can check that the address is the same as
the address on file at the credit card company."  

Most UK credit card issuers won't confirm cardholders' addresses, so I suspect that's where it all stops for
me!  The weird thing is that they say you can make your eBay address the same as a confirmed PayPal address,
but not the other way round.

Ah well...

Cheers,

IIRC my address became confirmed after the $1 (or E1) was withdrawn from
my CC and I filled in the code number that was on the withdrawal. But
that might have been the procedure a few years ago.

The procedure is the same now.

You have to give a credit card information for a mastercard or visa card, then Paypal withdraws a small amount  of money together  with a 4digit number on your creditbill. When you will fill in this 4digit number in your Paypal account the address is verified.

IIRC your confirmed address has to match your credit card billing
address.   This prevents someone who has your credit card number from
shipping to another address that you are unaware of.

PayPal will not confirm addresses outside the USA. If they do, they have to
pay for "lost" shipments. Part of the seller protection policy.

PayPal has confirmed my address which is outside USA and they give me guarantee if I pay with PayPal.

Buy something from me so I can see if it shows up as a confirmed address
with /seller/ protection. <grin>

My take-
They will only confirm an address consistant with your banking and
credit card address. You can be confirmed in another country if that is
where you financials point to.
But that makes you an "international" or (insert specific country) user.

I lied. I just got an order from a guy in the U.K. and PayPal has it marked
as Confirmed and Eligible for Seller protection.
