Which email address will my buyers send payments to?
When you receive a payment for an item listed on eBay with PayPal as a payment option, the payment is sent to the email address designated in the Sell Your Item form for that listing.
When a buyer uses the send money flow from their PayPal account, the payment is sent to the email address the buyer enters in the payment flow. Please note that if the payment is sent to an unregistered email address, the payment will not post to your PayPal account until you add and confirm the email address.
