What is a confirmed address?

A confirmed address is one that has been validated by PayPal. We confirm addresses to help:
  • Guard against stolen credit cards.
  • Verify your identity.
  • Decrease chances of receiving a fraud-related chargeback.
To validate an address, we ensure that the buyer's credit card billing and shipping address are the same, or we examine the buyer's PayPal account history and confirm the address.
